Creggs U13 Match Report

24

Creggs u13 travelled to Connemara last weekend in the first round of the U13 cup. Played in very challenging conditions, dry but very wild and windy it was Creggs who came out on top.

Creggs played with the wind in the first half and made the most of it with some fine kicking from James larken.

Creggs were first to open the scoring with a fine try from captain Tim lambe from the back of the scrum.

Killeen Higgins scored the second just before half time from a penalty on Connemara 5 yard line with a quick tap and go to barge over the line .

The second half was a complete contrast to the first as creggs this time round were holding onto the ball and rarely kicking away possession.

Connemara’s come back came in the second half but some great defensive work from Own Hester, Michael Kelly and Kayley Mannion held Creggs firm.

Creggs third try came from a great break in his own 22 from James Larken who ran the full length of the pitch to score under the posts.

Connemara fought till the bitter end and scored just before the final whistle. Creggs u13 are now in the quarter finals of the cup and all support is needed.

Team – Owen Hester, Kayley Mannion, Killeen Higgins, Cathal Crehan, Michael Kelly, Jack Keane, Michael Quinn, Captain Tim Lambe, Luke O’Malley, James Larken, Charlie Daly, Dylan Horan, Connor Downey, Cian Dolan, John Martin.
Subs – Mathew Curly, Adam Downey, Albert looby and Troilough O’Malley.

Creggs RFC were honoured today with a visit from Ireland and Lions star Gordon Darcy. Beautiful weather and a large socially distanced crowd welcomed Gordon and his brother Ian to Creggs. He is on day two of a four day 850km charity cycle raising funds for Barretstown.
Gordon now a successful children's book author had many young fans waiting for him with copies of his books for signing. Gordon Darcy complimented Creggs RFC on the fabulous new development (dressing rooms and gym) which is under construction and the 4g pitch which is the only one of its kind in Connacht.
He also commended the policy which sees the facility used by other local sports clubs.
We wish Gordon well as he endeavors to complete his journey back to Dublin at the weekend.
A legend in every sense of the word.
