Crettyard United AFC v Bansha Celtic
Crettyard 3-0 Bansha Celtic
u14 sfai 16/09 13:15
Crettyard United AFC 3 - 0 Bansha Celtic

This game in Killeen was contested in a great sporting manner throughout. Both teams battled hard and it was Crettyard who set the tempo. Peter Grogan and Rowan Byrne caused problems in the Bansha defence early on but the Tipp side held firm. The first goal eventually came from Darragh Kealy. He created the goal himself by spinning off his man and striking a wonderful shot from range into the top corner. Crettyard turned up the pressure and they got a second from the ever-present Dara Kelly from a corner to lead 2-0 at half-time. Bansha reacted in the second half with their own spell of attacks but the excellent work of the Crettyard defence wouldn't let them in. Crettyard ran out 3-0 winners with Shane Buggy getting on the scoresheet. Credit to Bansha Celtic for putting in a good display and Crettyard with a great team performance.

U11 and U10 Blitz Format
Blitz procedure

This year the format for u11 and u10 is dual games as above in the diagram so there is two games going on at the same time across a big pitch. There will be one official ref and the clubs take it in turn to officiate the other game. The ref swaps pitches at half time so all kids get equal time with ref. There will be four teams at most grounds every week unless a club ask for the day off. If two of the teams are from the same club then we play two 40 minute matches (20mins a half) to avoid the club playing against itself.
