Our U19s got their Pre-season up and running playing against the Irish Schools U18 International team in the New FAI Abbotstown facility on Sunday last.
It was a very encouraging 2-2 draw, especially as Shels came back from two down after an hour to earn a deserved draw – both goals coming from James Brown, one from the peno spot after he had been fouled in the box. All six new signings got a run out, as did George Mukete, making a comeback after a season long injury.
Squad for the game; Matt Lyons, David Harper, James Brown, Stephen Kelly, Fintan Devlin, Cian Fogarty, George Mukete, Glenn Carragher (Capt), Stephen Meaney, Gavin Balfe, Ross Coyle, Ryan O’Neill, Michael Murphy, Andy Gorman, Alex Barry, Aaron Ralph, and Dammy Awosanya.
We wish Paddy O’Reilly and his Irish Squad the best of luck in the up coming Carnegie Centenary Tournament and hope they retain there trophy
