After a rather condensed season with such a long break in the middle the Under 13 team made it to the semi final of the league cup and quarter final of the Desmond cup. Their nemesis Kildimo defeated them on three occasions on their home turf and were the eventual winners of both competitions. A huge positive for the squad was that they played great football and with a bit of luck could have knocked them out of the Desmond cup. Overall though it was a good season with some new faces added to the squad this year that slotted in well and were a great asset to the club.
On Saturday June 2nd the team had a very enjoyable day out paintballing at Combat Zone in Ballyhahill with 19 out of 21 on the squad attending. Though it was a large group, every one of the lads was well behaved both to and from the venue on the bus, followed all instructions given by the instructors at the venue and were good reps for Ballingarry FC. A great day for all was rounded off at the clubhouse where they took a team photo and presented some awards.
Congratulations to Anna Mullane and Chloe O’Keeffe who were voted U16 Girls Division 1 Player of the Year and U12 Girls Inter League Player of the Year respectively. Pictures show both receiving their awards at the LDS/GL Awards Night in Rathkeale House Hotel on June 4th 2018 last.
Congratulations to Adam Shanagher who vas voted LDFL Division 2 Youth Player of the Year and Anna Mullane who won the LDS/GL U16 Division 1 Player of the Year.
