From David Conway, Secretary, Robe Rockets re Wednesday night’s trip to Ballintubber – scroll down for report.
Large numbers of Ballinrobe and Ballintubber young players gathered in Ballintubber Community Pitch this evening.
Ballinrobe arrived in droves with final numbers totaling 85 of U6’s, U8’s and U10’s.(These were matched with double as many numbers of the silent army of midgets..but that didn’t stop the play!)
Ballintubber offered us a warm welcome and were good opponents with similar numbers in each age group. It was a wonderful sight to see this evening with nearly 170 Girls and Boys playing football on all 6 pitches across the three age groups.
The teams were selected and each child got to play. It would be hard to call the final scores as there were so many matches being played but there were goals and points a plenty going in at either end. Well done to all.
A big thank you to our Robe Rockets who played and enjoyed the outing this evening, for some their first Away match.
Robe Rockets looks forward to welcoming Ballintubber to Flanagan Park in the near future.
Thanks to Ballintubber for hosting us, thanks to all parents for bring their kids along this evening and a special mention to all the coaches and helpers this evening for their hard work. The future looks bright…
