Naomh Eoin Ladies Football Update
The Clubs Ladies Football teams have had mixed fortunes with the Leagues kicking off.
The Senior Ladies have had 2 fixtures to date winning the first game against St James Aldergrove in a tough contest.
The Ladies could not field against Moneyglass in the second fixture due to the unavailability of a number of players and had to concede the points.
Next up is a game against St Pauls B –Which should be a tough contest for the Ladies
The U16 Ladies have had a great start to their campaign with 4 wins out of 4 games against All Saints (Ballymena),Cairde Bheal Feirste, Creggan and St Joseph’s (Glenavy).They are currently sitting at the top off the League table. The girls have been playing excellent football and it has been a joy to watch -winning admiration from spectators and the opposition.
We have a panel of 21 girls and everyone has shown great commitment to the team , at present 4 of the girls are representing Antrim.
The U14 girls have played one game to date beating St Enda’s and have had one game postponed by Sarsfields.
Despite having only 13 available for the game the girls played outstanding as a team against St Enda’s and dug deep to secure a win.
At present there are 5 girls representing Antrim u14 ladies and Our U14 coach Laura is also the current manager of the Antrim u14 ladies team.
We have a small panel to select from for u14’s and would encourage any members who have not shown at training to date or who have any friends interested in playing to come along to training sessions and games.
The U12 girls have played 3 games to date -winning 2 against St Teresa’s & Ardoyne but losing to Gortnamona in a game that with the full panel might have been a different outcome. The girls played in terrible conditions but showed great fight and determination.
As above, we have a small panel to select from for u12’s and would encourage any members who have not shown to date or have any friends interested in playing to come along to training sessions and games.
