U12 Skryne team are victorious over Na Fianna in the Summer League 2011.

The U12 Skryne team who were victorious over Na Fianna in the Summer League Final. 


This was going to be a great game between two strong sides. Skryne had met Na Fianna before and it ended up to be a great game and today Saturday 6th @ 3.00pm this was going to be no different. With Skryne missing some good players it was going to be tough. As Pauric Finnerty mentioned the “show must go on” and so it did. Both teams from Skryne traded points either side. The first half was good hard football. Na Fianna started to get on top of Skryne and Skryne kept chomping at the bit. There were goals going in at both ends. With all players doing really well and giving it every thing. The managers and mentors really had the players fired up. Na Fianna had a good free taker who was scoring some good points from free’s. But Skryne were able to match it with points from play and Dillion Bissete playing well along with Frankie, Owen & Jamie on the team nearest to the club house. On the hill side Colm Doherty, Luke, Shane & Robbie all played well. There wasnt one player who didnt give it more than 110%. With the half time score starting with pitch nearest to the goal it was Skryne: 2-7 Na Fianna:  3-7. On the side of the hill it was Skryne:  0-4 Na Fianna 0-3. This was going down to the wire. The second half kicked off and the defenders scrambled for every ball and stopped na Fianna getting goals. The defence were starting to really help each other out and the forwards were grateful and pulled off some good points and Goals. Skryne were now in top gear and had control of the game. Michael Carolan pulled off some fine saves in goals and the team were now starting to gel. There was great excitment on the pitch with all Parents, Family & Freinds getting behind the Skryne team. The final whistle went and there was great anxiety as nobody was too sure of the accumilated score overall. In the end Skryne won by 11 Points and every one of the players managers & mentors should be proud of themselves. “Well done lad’s and also thanks to all the parents who gave up there time”.
