Rossglass Juniors winners at Celtic Bhoys Tournament. Two of our four junior teams picked up trophies at the Celtic Bhoys annual tournament held at Dunleath last week. The Under 17 team made it to the final of the Plate but lost the final 4-2 to Rathrifland. Better news for the newly formed under 10 team playing in their fourth tournament of the pre-season.
After a slow start, the squad showed their fighting spirit and rallied under manager Danny McGarrity to earn the first trophy in their short existence. In previous events, the youngsters recorded two semi-final appearances against tough opposition but this time they went one better lifting the plate. Special praise to all the players for a monumental achievement. This win should give the team great confidence going in to their next tournament the Uhlsport Community Cup at Moyola Park FC in Magherafelt, 31st August. Former Manchester Utd player Pat McKibbon is guest of honour and will be presenting the trophies and medals on the night. We wish our young County team all the best in what is sure to be a tough test against Academy opposition.
After losing a close fought final in our own tournament, 1-0 to East Belfast, our 2012s first team were in top form at Dunleath. Our boys and girls made it all the way to the final of the cup without conceding a goal. They met a very good team in Celtic Bhoys in the final but eventually ran out 1-0 winners. Another great result for this young team who are playing some excellent football. Our 2012’s second team Rossglass Colts almost brought home the plate but finished runners-up in the end.
It was a fabulous weekend of football. Well done to all our boys and girls it was a fantastic experience for them. If you know anyone who would like to be part of this great team then please get in touch at www.rossglasscounty.com.Rossglass County would like to thank Celtic Bhoys FC for the invite and congratulate them on organising an excellent competition run in an efficient and friendly spirit.
