Creggs Development team played Creggs Legends to mark the official opening of the club’s superb new facilities on Saturday. This game proved to be a great success, with many of the Creggs stars of the past returning to participate in a highly entertaining contest against the current crop of up-and-coming players.
Both squads alternated their players at regular intervals, giving welcome relief to the older lads who rolled back the years to remind us of their great days in the maroon and white. Some of the Legends looked in remarkable shape, with Ruairi Leddy, Emmet Collins and Enda Muldoon bamboozling the opposition at times, while Martin Fallon, Kieran Egan, Joel Mc Philbin and Edward Payne also caught the eye with strong performances.
The tries came thick and fast with the new digital scoreboard struggling to keep up with the scoring. Almost 50 players togged out to take part in this game, with referee Mattie Corcoran maintaining excellent control throughout to ensure that the game was played in a manner befitting the occasion.
