Game of Light Blitz - Foxcab U11 VS Crokes U11   09/11/2016

“Game of Light Blitz” – Foxcab U11 VS Crokes U11

Throw in 7pm on Friday 04th November 2016

Last Friday we had over 31 girls from the U11’s turn up to play against Kilmacud Crokes in a “Game of Light Blitz”, held in Kilbogget Park. Our U11 girls made history in the club by being the first EVER team in Foxrock Cabinteely to play under lights in Kilbogget Park. Both teams put out two teams of 11 players each and one team of 10 players each.

The under-11s produced yet another outstanding performance, with all three teams excelling themselves in fierce tackling, teamwork and achieving some outstanding scores. Our Foxcab girls came away with again another 6/6 wins which is incredible for this young group of girls.

After the “Game of Light Blitz”, all girls from Foxcab U11s, Crokes U11 and all parents, went back into Seapoint Rugby Club. All the girls enjoyed a nice cup of Hot Chocolate and a bag of goodies, while the parents enjoyed a cup of tea/coffee and some sandwiches. This was a fantastic opportunity for the not only the girls to mix and mingle put also the parents. A special thanks must go to Gwen Downing, Edwina Mullan, Carol Dillon and Jane O’Connell Bell for organising the goodies, teas/coffees etc. Also thanks to all the Parents who brought a plate of sandwiches along with them, it is very much appreciated.

The “Game of Light Blitz”, took huge organising in terms of  contacting all players and opposition, contacting referees, getting a pitch with lights, getting to use Seapoint rugby club for after the match, and an endless amount of other small jobs. On behalf of the U11 management team, the U11 girls, and parents, we would like to thank Paul Tonge for the fantastic effort and fun that was had by all on Friday night. Paul continues to work effortlessly hard, making sure the U11s get a game every week, as this is what they look forward to the most… So thank you very much Paul Tonge… we continue to look forward to our next match!

Thanks also to Kilmacud Crokes for traveling across to our club, to the referees, U10 girls that came up and gave us a hand and to Pat Ryan for the photos of the match.

The girls continue to train hard every Tuesday evening and are always on the lookout and welcoming new players.

The girls look forward to Saturday’s match, where they will travel out to play against a very strong team, Royal Gaels in Dunshaughlin … match report to follow.
