Borris-Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club The 2009 U14 Football Parish League took place last Sunday evening under lights in the Town Park. Though cold and damp it was an opportunity to get a lot of our juvenile players down to the field for the first time in 2010. The team captains were BLUE Team Paudie , WHITE Team Dylan, YELLOW Team Dean, GREEN Team Liam.
Following a very competitive and exciting round robin robin, the scene was set for the Plate final between the Yellows and Greens and the Parish League Final between the Whites and Blues. Both games were played in a very sporting and competitive spirit and the Plate final had to be decided on a Penalty shoot out which nearly went on as long as the game itself, it took fifteen penalties each before the deadlock could be broken and the honours went to Dean’s yellow team. In the League Final, the game could have gone either way and was a close contest for the first half, but the luck was with the Blues and they pulled away in the second half to take the Trophy. Paudie captain of the Blues accepted the trophy from Chairman Michael Carey. Our thanks to all who supported and managed the teams on the night and to our referees Mossy Shanahan and Brendan Kenny who also organised the tournament.
