Boys U-14 division 1; Abbeyfeale United 5 NCW Town 1 (scorer for Town, Josh Joyce).
Abbeyfeale scored in the first five minutes with a lob over the goalkeeeper’s head. Josh Joyce scored an equaliser with a shot from well outside the penalty area that dipped just below the crossbar. It was an evenly contested first half. Abbeyfeale took a 2-1 lead just before the half time break. The conditions were miserable for the players, referee and spectators throughout the match, during which the rain was constant. Abbeyfeale added three goals in the second half, but Newcastle West was not outplayed. The players from both sides deserve a lot of credit for playing in the Wintery conditions. NCW Town team; Mariuz Palew, Patrick Noonan, Kevin Barrett, Evan Meehan, Adam Costello, Jack O’Sullivan, David Piedzia, Michael O’Brien, Evan M. Meehan, Josh Joyce, Nathan Papeirowski, Shane Lacey, Conor Smallwood, Diarmuid Lyons, Tommy Mullane & Oisín McGrath.
