Carrick 15 Creggs 2nds 0
Carrick proved too strong for Creggs in Saturday’s friendly fixture played in ideal conditions at Carrick’s new grounds. With the J2 league starting next weekend,this was a useful exercise for both teams,with Carrick’s greater cohesion helping them to a hard-earned victory against the recently re-formed Creggs 2nds team. Carrick led 5-0 at halftime,and confirmed their superiority with two tries in quick succession midway through the second half. Creggs battled bravely to the end,with experienced campaigners Kieran Coyne,Noel Flynn, Paul Mc Neill,Alan Glennon and Kieran Ryan providing leadership alongside Brian Coady,Enda Tully,Conor Deane,David Hoare and Jonny Pontier.
