U12 Bray Emmets vs St Cronans N.S

3 February, 2012

The U12 squad hosted St Cronan's N.S in Old Conna on Friday Evening. Both teams had large panels available to them on the night and two 12-a-side games took place on the 3G pitch.

A cool crisp night with little or no wind was ideal conditions for football and the boys from both teams did not disappoint.  Both games were fast flowing and full of well taken scores, accurate passing and some fine high fielding.

While the two games were keenly contested St Cronan's greater power and physical size saw them through in both games on the night.

On pitch 1  Andrew Conway, Darragh Rochford, Ben Kearney, James Anders and Conor Dowling stood out for Bray Emmets while on pitch 2 Luca Lennon, Jamie Baguley and Michael Timmons shone. Bray Emmet players Joe Phelan and David Maloney played very well "guesting" for St Cronans.

Like a true local derby there was a fantastic atmosphere on the night with a huge number of parents, families and friends turning up to support both teams . Coaches from both teams agreed that there should be a rematch in the very near future.
