Our U13s headed West this weekend for a friendly against Mervue Utd AFC. Very enjoyable weekend had by all, lovely warm welcome from Ger and the lads in Mervue. Match got underway and it was a fair battle in the first half by both sides with some spectacular saves by Brady, and great efforts from Seán, Ross and Josh. Mervue just got their goal before half time. Second half saw a few changes from Mervue while Rathcoole continued with their 11 players, with a few injuries but kept going nonetheless 👍Our sidelines were in cracking form as usual with a few "how is he?" and lots of banter and laughter, as well as encouragement and support for the lads. Mervue's premier side proved to be the strongest on the day with a 4-0 defeat, but the scoreline did not reflect the constant battling and team spirit of Rathcoole who looked great on the pitch on the day and performed well. Penalty shootouts afterwards, and a get together back at the clubhouse for both teams. These lads were a credit to their parents, managers and club this weekend, so job well done everyone and a big thanks to our hosts Mervue Utd AFC.
