Under 21 B Champions
On Saturday afternoon in Pairc Sean there were great celebrations when the Gaels Under 21s defeated North Leitrim neighbours, Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher in the Under 21 B Championship Final.
This was a very well contested final with both sides playing some great football. Despite all the rain, the pitch was in excellent condition, and both these teams served up a very entertaining game, particularly for the neutrals among the crowd.
The Gaels deserved their win but were pushed all the way by a very good and determined Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher team.
A goal in each half from Glenfarne/Kiltyclogher meant that the Gaels had to fight all the way.
A well worked goal, with a great finish from Packie Hill, for the Gaels midway through the second half eased the tension and put the Gaels in the driving seat. There were some great performances and many contenders for man of the match in the Gaels team, but congratulations to James Bredin who was very deserving of the award.
Congratulations to Gareth, David and Joe and all the lads.
Congratulations as well to Shane Ryan who celebrated his 18th Birthday on Saturday- a nice present for Shane, he also put in a great performance.
