Cahir Park Girls

Cahir Park U8s and U10 girls played a blitz in Tipperary Town on Sunday morning last. For a lot of these girls this was their first game in a Cahir Park jersey and they did not dissapoint. Ava Fanning started in goal and made some very good saves before moving outfield and impressing further. In defence we had strong performances from Amy O Connor, Casey Butler, Jessica Davis and Zoe Conway. We had a very good midfield of Eire Carroll, Caoimhe Leahy, Sienna Ferris and Heather Kiely. Our hard working strikers included great performances from Ava McKenna, Tia Kelly and Lauren O Donovan. This was a fantastic first day out with many more to come. Well done to all the girls. Training continues on Tuesdays and Friday nights at 7pm. Our U9 boys competed very well in a blitz Sunday morning in St Michaels. Well done boys see you all Saturday morning at academy in Cahir Park Astro Pitch.
