U13's Shield Champions 2015/2016

This Saturday our under 13's took to the field in their final game of the season against Croom .This was a winner takes all match as both teams had a chance of taking home the shield. The game started spritely and the instruction which was dished to the team before kick-off was very evident in the early stages, possession was bossed and several attacking sequences were executed one after another. Within the first 15 minutes all the play seemed to be heading one direction in search of the first goal and the Croom defence and keeper were not given a seconds rest, it seemed the ball which was being used must have been like a rock, as shot after shot deemed un-effective. After surviving the early onslaught Croom worked the ball down field and created a 1v1 inside our 18 yard box, our defender must have missed the pressing sessions we did during the season and lunged in toward the ball catching the opposing player and conceding a penalty.

Gaynor Cup Weekend 23rd/24th Update
U14's Finish in 11th place while U16's Finish 16th

There wasn't much luck for either Gaynor Cup team this week as the U14's Finish in 11th place while U16's Finish 16th. The U16's lost all bar one of their games by a single goal and their final position doesn't do Justice to their efforts over the week. A 1-0 defeat on Saturday to Sligo/Leitrim in the Bowl Semi Finals was followed by another 1-0 reverse to Cork on Sunday. The U14's were beaten in the plate semi final by Inishowen on a scoreline of 2 goals to 1 with Grace Fitzgerald getting the goal. On Sunday they played Sligo/Leitrim for the 11th/12th place finish. They led 2-0 at half time before finishing the game level at 3-3. Grace Fitzgerald, Aoife Cronin & Emma Kett on target. After a nail biting penalty shootout the girls prevailed with all 5 girls scoring. The penalty takers were Jodie Keane, Aine Walsh, Aoife Cronin, Libby, Costelloe and Jenna Slattery. Well done to all girls who participated the weekend and we hope ye enjoyed it all.

Gaynor Cup Udate Friday 22nd June
No Luck for both U14 & U16's on day 2

The U16 Girls had 2 games today and were defeated narrowly in both games by a single goal. Luck was definitely not on this teams side this week as a 1-0 loss to Midlands in the morning was followed by a 2-1 reverse to Wexford in the evening. They now go into the bowl where they will play Sligo/Leitrim in the semis at 4.30pm Saturday. Their was heartbreak for the u14girls as they dominated from start to finish in their bid to top the group but could just not score that elusive one goal they craved to make the Gaynor Cup semifinals.Despite great chances from Aoife Cronin , Aine Walsh , Emma Kett and Ellen Costello , two massive shouts for penalties and a brilliant Midlands’ goalkeeping performance the Midlands held on to acquire the point they themselves needed to qualify. It was a tremendous effort by the girls and they are getting better with each game. They eventually finished 3rd in a group on a head to head & if it was goal difference like the boys they would have finished second. Ironically if the boys were head to head they would have topped the group. The girls now play in the plate tomorrow Saturday at 1.30pm against Inishowen.

Gaynor Cup Update Thursday 21st
Mixed fortunes for Limerick County Teams on day one of Gaynor Cup

The Gaynor Cup opened in UL in perfect conditions today. There was mixed fortunes for our Limerick County teams with the U14's having a win and a draw while the U16's suffered defeat in the their only game of the day to a strong Donegal outfit by three goals to one. They play 2 games tomorrow, one at 10am v Midlands and their last group game at 4.30pm v Wexford. The U14s played twice today losing their opener in a tight game with very good MGL side by a goal to nil. The best chances in this game coming from set pieces. In the second game they turned on the style winning by 6 goals to 1 against Mid Western. A great performance from all here with Kilmallocks Aoife Cronin the star of the show with a hat trick. The others were scored by Aine Walsh, Emily O Halloran & Jenna Slattery. They probably have to win their last game against Midlands (who have won both games) to go through to the knockout stages. Best of luck to both the U14s & U16s today again.

Kennedy Cup Update Thursday 14th June
Limerick County finish 12th in Kennedy Cup after 2 penalty shoot out losses to Kilkenny & Clare

Limerick County finished their Kennedy Cup week today when they had to settle for a very good 12th place after 2 penalty shootout losses to Kilkenny & Clare. First up today was Kilkenny in the semi final of the Bowl(for teams who were runners up in their group). Kilkenny started the brighter but did not create any clearcut chances and once the County boys settled into the game they looked the more likely to break the deadlock. Best chances of the game were late in the game when first County hit the post from a corner off a Conor Finn header and Conor had a free kick spilled on the goal line by the Kilkenny keeper but no one there to follow up. Just before full time Owen O Sullivan beat a couple of players and was through on goal, he rounded the keeper only to be hauled down just outside the box by the keeper who only received a yellow card. No goal from the resulting free kick meant that it was straight to penalties and luck was not on the counties side as the Kilkenny keeper made 2 saves in a penalty shoot out where he probably should not have been to send Kilkenny through to the final. It was very tough luck on the boys as they were the better side and created the more clear cut chances. The final game was against Clare and again after a dour game ended 1-1 courtesy of a stunning goal on the volley from Cathal O Mahoney it went to penalties and again came out on the wrong side on a scoreline of 6-5. All in all it was a superb week for all involved from Manager Greg Foley, Coaches Timmy Rainsford, Ray Ryan & John Foley, all the players ( who all played some part in the week) who were magnificent on & off the field and of course not forgetting the parents and supporters. On behalf of the league a big Thank You to ye all for a great weeks entertainment.

Kennedy Cup Update Wednesday 13th June
Limerick County defeat Waterford to advance to Semi Finals of Bowl

Our Kennedy Cup squad kept their good form in this years tournament going when they had a well deserved 1-0 win over Waterford today courtesy of a goal from Paddy Kennedy. The boys were well on top for the whole game and really could have scored 3 or 4 so much was their dominance. They took the lead in the first half when a shot by Owen O Sullivan came off the post and Paddy Kennedy was there at the back post to tap home. It was all one way traffic again in the second half and Dion Curtin had a header narrowly wide from close range & had another shot excellently saved by the Waterford keeper. John English ran onto a broken ball and a great shot from 25 yards brought another excellent save from the keeper. Another super performance from the boys who march onto the semi finals against Kilkenny at 12.30 on Grass Pitch 1 tomorrow Thursday. A great week for all involved so far and hopefully it will continue tomorrow.

Kennedy Cup Update Tuesday 12th June
Limerick County qualify for Bowl in second place( on Goal Difference)

Our Kennedy Cup squad were oh so close to topping the group on the second day of the Kennedy Cup just losing out on Goal Difference. After a tremendous effort last night against Kildare it was no surprise that it took a small while to get going in their first match of the day against South Dublin Football League. A deflected ball over the top was dispatched to the net by the South Dublin centre forward after 10 mins and try as they might after that County could not find an equalizer. They had a few decent chances with the best chance falling to Billy Daly who just got there before the keeper but his lobbed effort going agonisingly wide. They had South Dublin on the rack for all of the second half until South Dublin made it 2-0 from the penalty spot with the last kick of the game. Onto the second game of the day against West Cork and there was no let up from the word go as they tore into West Cork from start to finish and ran out comfortable winners by 2 goals to nil. A brilliant run and pass by Harry Fox to Cathal O Mahoney saw the Galbally man finish with aplomb after 10 mins to put County 1-0 up. As I said County dominated the game and were rewarded with a second goal 14 mins into the second half when great work by Harry Fox again (I have to say he was outstanding) and he fed Cathal O Mahoney who skinned his marker for the umpteenth time and sent over perfect cross for Dion Curtin to head home much to the delight of everyone. Noah Patterson hit the post and another few chances went a begging as Kildare topped the group courtesy of a 4-0 win and better goal difference. It was another excellent performance from everybody and hopefully all those who took a knock or are carrying one will be ok tomorrow. The boys play Waterford on Grass Pitch 3 at 3pm in the 1/4 final of the bowl for finishing in runners up spot in their group. Well done to all again and best of luck tomorrow.

Kennedy Cup Update Monday 11th June
Limerick County down well fancied Kildare in Kennedy Cup opener

Our Kennedy Cup Update for Monday 11th June brings great news from UL as our Squad are celebrating after after a brilliant 3-1 win over a very good Kildare side who just could not get loose due to the unbelievable work rate and determination from all involved. It was a dream start for the boys and will give them great confidence going forward. 2 goals from Owen O Sullivan and 1 from Dion Curtin saw the boys secure the win against a well fancied Kildare but it would be unfair to single out anybody as to a man they were all excellent and worked tirelessly as well as some great football. Next up is the South Dublin Football League at 12.30 (Pitch 3 Grass)Tuesday followed by West Cork at 6pm (Pitch 7 All Weather) on Tuesday to complete the group.

Limerick County Kennedy Cup Squad
Limerick Kennedy Cup Squad ready for a big week.

The Limerick County Kennedy Cup squad are nearing their week of destiny next week.The majority of these kids have been together for four years. A few new players joined us early this season and have brought a breath of fresh air into the squad. This current season has seen the squad play close to thirty games which is pretty decent for an Inter League squad.

The squad has trained once per week which was upped to twice per week from March to current time. During the current season, we have played Wexford, Clare, South Tipperary, West Waterford East Cork, Athlone, Mayo and Roscommon to name just a few.

We are in a very tough group and are ranked as 4th seeds in our group. We have drawn Kildare, South Dublin and West Cork and will play them in that order.

Kildare, we believe, are in it to win it and have recently come back from a one week Training Camp in Portugal. South Dublin, like all of the Dublin Teams will be strong.

Likewise, West Cork will prove to be tough opponents.

The last few years has been reasonably tough for the Limerick County teams in this competition and all I can say is that this group will give everything they have in every game and it won’t be for the want of trying
