Raheny and Clontarf u9s faced off for 3 streamed matches on Saturday morning up on Alfie Byrne Astro.

Lovely morning for hurling on this lightening quick surface. Many thanks to Clontarf players and mentors for the morning's sport.

For our green team, all the boys played very well in a well earned victory. 

Special mention to Daniel Broderick for an outstanding performance both in point taking, often from impossible angles, and excellent blocking.

Mentions also for Ruairi Kelly for a couple of good points from out the pitch, Eoghan Cullen for well timed blocks, and Conor Ahearne for his catching skill point and tireless effort right through the 40 minutes. All 9 boys put on a great show in a real team performance.

In the white match Michael Harnett writes that the lads played really well in a good win over Clontarf.

Stand out performance was from young John McNally who got some great scores and never let their midfield settle. Conor Ryan and Sam Grant played really well in defence to shut out Clontarf for no scores in 2nd half. A great team effort to put Matthew thru to score the last goal with his boot! Well done boys.

For the orange team Richard Sherlock and Mike Twomey noted that this was the best match this group of lads have ever played from start to finish.

Great all around team performance. Rueben got stuck in, in the first half. Paul was super in goal in second half. Scott bagged a hat trick of goals.

Cathal Quinn and Cormac Lenehan ran the show for the full 40 minutes. All the players were stars on the team in a 3rd win.

Boys, we all need to keep getting the hurley in our hands daily to continue to develop our first touch. Every little bit of work will pay off.

Training details for this week - Tuesday, hurling, pitch 1 5.50. Wednesday, football, pitch 9 5.50.

Keep up the great work players, parents and mentors.
