Under 8 Boys Gala Football Blitz

The under 8 boys took part in a gala football  blitz last Saturday in Malahide Castle, which was being hosted by Sylvesters. We travelled with 27 boys on a wet and windy morning, but the weather didn’t dampen the boys’ spirits. We played a total of 8 matches and performed in all with great skill. The boys were taking their scores from all areas of the pitches. There was great passing and tackling skills on show as well as really stylish solo runs. All the boys played with great team spirit and fair play, and it was great to see them calling each other to pass and lots of high fives when they scored! They supported and encouraged each other throughout the matches. The blitz was between the Harps, Sylvesters & FIngallians, the Harps were victorious in 6 matches drew 1 and were only marginally beaten in 1 match!! The boys as usual had really great support from the parents, who travelled in large numbers. Even though wet through they were looking to play another match. They all received their medals as well as great goodie bags from the host club.
