Fáilte - Welcome to the team page of the FAOI11 BUACHAILLÍ/U11 BOYS (BORN 2009)
Match reports Mar 23rd
Group 1's hurling matches v St Brigids went very well.. The Antelopes drew, the ref giving us a few skill points for the hook which we needed but overall a good game.. Great to see plenty of hooking and blocking from our lads.. The Cougars played great, hooking, blocking, passing, ball in hand, all good.. They didnt concede a point even when under pressure.. Sam Morgan, Ian Ross, Oliver Saunders and Charlie Winters men of the match.. If it was to go to just one it would have to be Ian Ross for Man of the Match.. Well done lads..
Tough games against Na Fianna for Group 2 with another Man of the Match performance from Ivan Tew for the Lions.. The Bulls had a great battle with Na Fianna with stand out performances from Gary Spring, Ollie Daly, Terry Og McAdam and Ryan Caffrey (Ryan defending for Clontarf all by himself at times.. well done Ryan..!!).. Great puck outs from Oscar Cunningham in goal and some good fielding from Lochlann Murray.. David Ryan, Luke Flanagan and Diarmaid O'Brien put great pressure on the Na Fianna front and back three.. A very good performance overall with two pointers at the end of the game - PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE lifting the ball - jab lift and roll lift.. AND no STATUES on the pitch, everyone must get stuck in to the game, in to rucks, chasing, marking.. David Ryan's Dad suggested a "sweat test" at the end of each game to see who put in a full shift.. great idea..!!!
MATCH REPORTS.. Mar 16th, 2017..
While the Group 2 games over in Kilmacud games were called off due to the weather/pitch conditions, the sturdy folk of Clontarf went ahead with the Group 1 home games v Clanna Gael.. despite the wind, cold and rain the Group 1 U10 Boys won 3 games out of 3.. well done to all.. three great team performances by all accounts.. a good morning of football...
SAME Groups.. due to the great enthusiasm of the boys and the great support from their parents, we continue to have really good numbers for this Under 10 group.. nearly 80 in total.. so we will maintain TWO groups.. GROUP 1 and GROUP 2.. the boys remain in the group they were in last year..
SAME TEAMER.. as before, TEAMER is the main mode of communication....
PRIORITY #1.... HAVE FUN.....!!!!!!
Please check this page before the weekend in case of any changes due to weather etc.
For football boys must have a gumshield. You can get them in An Siopa our club shop (Tuesday & Thursday 7-8pm).
For hurling boys should have their own hurl/camán and helmet. Hurls are also available in An Siopa with some helmets also available there. Shin guards are also recommended.
Please make sure your sons bring uisce/water with them. Playing is thirsty work.
We have a great group of mentors but we are always looking for more helping hands especially with matches across North County Dublin. So if you're interested in helping out just get stuck in and chat to Padraig or any of the mentors.
Keep up to date with news in the club by checking our website and our social media. We have active accounts on Facebook and Twitter @ClontarfGAAClub and you can see pictures of matches etc on Instagram @cluaintarbh
The club caters for social sports. If you are interested in practicing some hurling or football so you could practice with your son at home you would be very welcome to try. You might bump into some of the mentors as well. Contact details are on this page.
