U16B Book Their Place
By Darren Murray
Scorers : Odhran Doyle (2), Sam Whelan, Gary Wilson, Ryan Hanley
We're delighted to report that our U16B have topped their group and booked their place in the Shield Final following a gritty display in difficult windy conditions on a bumpy pitch against an improved Celbridge Town side. Their was plenty of goalmouth action as both sides had difficulty controlling the ball in poor conditions - but credit to both teams effort, as they all played their part in an 8 goal feast.
Having fallen behind twice, Ardmore showed their strong character to get level each time, and then surge ahead thanks to their winning mentality and team spirit. Odhran Doyle grabbed 2 goals capping off a fine man of the match performance, while Ryan Hanley, Sam Whelan, and Gary Wilson got their names on the scoresheet. That was Gary's first goal for the team, and capped off our best move of the match when Ryan surged up the right corner and pulled a lovely ball back for the on-rushing Gary to fire home from 20 yards into the top corner. Clinical finishing and a collective will to win were the key factors today - well done lads!
On reflection, really good attitude, good football and plenty of effort from the team has put them into the final....now keep the heads down, work hard to improve, and go win that trophy lads!
