PEIL FAOI 12: On Thursday night last Laune Rangers visited Connolly Park for the final round of the 2019 County Leagues. Three great games, played in glorious sunshine, provided top class entertainment for the large crowd present. Ice cream and coke were distributed & appreciated afterwards – great to see so many smiles as people headed out the gates after great evening!On the A team front, our Rockie Warriors knew that victory would see them join Ballymac at the top the table and would add Phase 2 honours to their Phase 1 success. Despite missing a good few regulars, our boys gave a superb performance of heart and commitment that had them out ahead at séideadh deireanach fheadóg an réiteora…4-14 to 3-7. How satisfying it was to witness the excellent performances of the lads who had recently come to the group from the Division 1B team….great signs for the future! Missing some of our regulars put our B team at a big disadvantage against a strong Killorglin outfit but despite being behind in the scoreboard our boys never said die and gave of their best right to the long whistle! Well done, lads! The final game saw many of our U10s make their debut in the Division 9 clash with the Launesiders….an encounter in which they came out well ahead. The experience was certainly of huge benefit to our lads, as was sharing the dressing room with their older club mates for the first time! The Rockie future is bright! Wayne, take note!

Taithí (experience) iontach ab ea é dár bpeileadóirí óga agus beidh cuimhní iontacha acu go deo ar Fhéile JOHN WEST in Iarthar Éireann!
