Sunday the 25th May was a super Sunday for our young footballers from Listry. First into action at 12 noon were the U-8/10 girls and the U-8 boys. Both teams were playing Fossa in Fossa. Listry played great football in both games, displaying all the skills of the game. Our catching, kicking, hand passing and appetite for the game was great to watch. It was also great to see a lot of block-downs,especially in the boys game. Our team work was great and the most important thing of all is the kids enjoyed themselves. Thank you to Fossa for hosting the games and thank you to Listry coaches, Fergus Clifford, Pat Fleming, Tim Fitzgerald, Paul Gosney and Mike Breen for their organisational skills and kindness to the kids.
So,we went home happy from Fossa,had the dinner and headed to Castleisland to take on the Cordal U-12 team at 6pm. Listry U-12 boys and girls team were playing their first game in phase 2 of the Co.league. Cordal started with a goal, but, Listry playing with great intensity,took control of the game. With our defence marking tightly, linking up well with midfield and great ball delivered into the forwards the scores started to flow. The half time score was Listry 5-10 Cordal 1-1. Cordal played much better in the second half, got some good scores, but, Listry reacted when they had to and kicked another 5 points .A good team performance, great work rate by all the panel, excellent skill level and a very disciplined display. The final score was Listry 5-15 Cordal 4-8.Thank you to coaches Brian McCarthy, Peter Keane, Paul O Donoghue and Tony O Dowd for making sure all the panel got plenty of game time. All the panel can be proud of the way they played but I have to mention Aaron O Shea who kicked 3-9.
Roll on next Sunday, Up Listry.
