Milltown/Listry U-16 Ladies are County league Champions

On the 10th September the Milltown/Listry ladies U-16 team won the Co.league Div.4 final.They played a great Glenflesk team in the final at the Legion field in Direen on a very windy evening.Glenflesk had the wind in the first half and deserved to be ahead at half-time by 5 points.Mill/Listry played with great heart in the second half,scored two great goals and kicked some delightful points.After a late Glenflesk rally the girls held on to win a great final by 2 points.This was a great victory for Mill/Listry U-16 ladies who won all their league games to reach the final.Hard luck to Glenflesk,your day will come. Congratulations to Listry’s Darragh O’Regan who trained the team. Darragh did a fantastic job with this team,he brought organisation, discipline,structure,confidence,respect, fitness,teamwork and the football skills to be successful.Darragh was assisted by Listry’s Claire O’Sullivan and again Claire proved to be very capable of training a team.Claire is a student in U.C.C. and was available to help the team whenever the time allowed it. I hope Darragh and Claire will continue to train/manage Listry teams and we can look forward to more success in the future.Well done to Listry girls Elana Horgan,Aoife Broderick,Katie Hunt and Niamh Mannix,all members of the team.Thank you Sarah O’Sullivan,physiotherapist from Listry,who assisted the girls on the evening and that was very  much appreciated by all the girls.
