On Saturday the youths progressed into the quarter final of the Desmond Youth Cup and a visit to Carrig with a fine 3-0 win at Broadford. Kevin Forde with 2 and Shane Doherty were the scorers. The under 12 went down 2-1 at Breska Rovers but not without a fight. 2-0 down at the break left them with little hope but a fine second half performance saw them pull a goal back through Nathan Clancy to set up a grand stand finish. Sadly they just couldn’t get the second goal their efforts deserved. The under 8s hosted NCW Rvs in the afternoon with a Sean O’Connor strike proving not enough as the visitors went home 3-1 winners.

On Sunday the 16s visited Broadford but returned empty handed following a 3-2 loss. Anthony Forde repeated brother Kevins two goal feat from the previous day but to no avail. On the previous week the B team travelled to Glin for their Desmond Cup first round game where David Clancys first ever strike for the club ensured a replay while the A team drew at home to NCW Rvs 0-0 who had a man sent off, to ease their relegation worries.
