Ardmore Rovers U10A were invited to attend Home Farms U10 World Cup 2018 at their home Ground in Whitehall on Bank Holiday Monday 7th May 2018.
Some of the biggest clubs in Dublin were in attendance - St. Kevin’s Boys, Cherry Orchard & Home Farm F.C. to name a few - and our boys were very excited to participate.
In the group stages, Ardmore Rovers were pitted against St. Kevin’s, Templeogue & Cherry Orchard.
Ardmore took to the field with great enthusiasm only conceding one goal over the three games. We met the hosts, Home Farm, in the quarter finals winning 3-0. Next up it was Lucan Utd in the semi-final, we beat them 5-1. We then met St. Kevin’s again but this time in the final.
The final was a tight game, Ardmore scored half way through the first half but it was disallowed. The sides started the second half equal, Home Farm scored half way through the second half and held the lead until the final minute when Ardmore scored a late equaliser. It finished at 1-1 and went on to penalties where Ardmore Rovers won 3-2.
We overcame 6 teams unbeaten taking home the replica World cup.
The team is made up of a truly talented group of players –
