Cuala Weekly News

The U14s took the ‘Rebel ‘Capital by storm last weekend and in the process picked up the Mick O’Brien Memorial Tophy for the second year in a row!! This premier competition run by Nemo Rangers included opposition from St.Vincents (Cork), Macroom, Austin Stacks and An Gaeltacht in the final but there was no stopping our boys. Well done to all – a fantastic victory – and oh by the way the strike got sorted too. Photos on the website so check it out.
Special thanks too to the U14B and U13 footballers and mentors who helped the club out last weekend by stepping in to fulfil the fixture against St.Sylvesters. It may not be as glamourous as cup tournaments in Leeside but its required so thanks to all who helped out.
U14 Feile football starts this weekend with the A’s playing Whitehall away at 2pm and the B’s playing Crumlin away at 3:30pm. Keep up the good work lads.
