Men's Junior team into Championship Final

Eadestown have won all of their three championship matches to rightly earn their place in the final. Their last championship match was against Clogherinkoe, where Eadestown won out in the end  by a score of Eadestown 1-16  Clogherinkoe 0-8

The boys in Blue travelled to Clane again to play Clogherinkoe a fancied side in the semi-final of the Reserve D championship for an early start time of 8.45 pm. After making their way through a large Debs gathering in the Clane GAA grounds the Boys in Blue started the game with 15 players and one sub. However the Eadestown lads got off to good start with a well taken ground shot taken by Kieran Woods and nice point slotted over by Paddy O’Brien who also set up the goal. The Clogh replied by two well taken points. The boys in Blue notched up another 7 well taken points with a 2 point response from the Clogh. Half time score was Eadestown 1-8, Clogherinkoe 0-5 giving a 6 point winning margin to Eadestown. Our Boys in Blue continued their fast movement of the ball with our “nippy” forwards picking off some well taken points. Mark Dowling and Ritchie O’ Neill who were introduced mid- way in the first half were now influencing the game for Eadestown who scored an additional 8 pts to the Cloghs 3 pts. The final score was Eadestown 1-16 Clogherinkoe 0-8. This was a much closer game than the final score would suggest. Once again this was a good all round team performance with the lads playing an attractive free flowing type of football and finding their forwards with quality ball allowing them to take their total score tally well. While all 18 players put in a good shift for the hour, the following players performed well in this match- Niall Cummins, Mark Dowling, Alan Casey, Paul Hyland, Paddy O’Brien, Paddy Fleming and Shane Malone. 

A good number of players should be available for Saturday’s match due to our 3rd level students being home for the weekend. This squad of players are gelling well together with their winning success developing a team of self-belief. Player Manager Marcus Doyle and his team mentors Kevin Nichols and Tommy Lawlor are now preparing and planning their team strategy for the final to ensure that they go all the way and win on Saturday.

Team List Johnny Creighton, Shane Malone, John Fitzgibbon, Paul Hyland, Adam Fitzsimmons, Alan Casey, Caption,  Aran Fitzpatrick, Marcus Doyle, Niall Cummins 0-6, Paddy O’Brien 0-3, Jack Harney 0-2 Ciarán Woods 1-0, Niall Gorman , Mark Prendergast 0-1, Paddy Fleming 0-1. Subs Mark Dowling 0-1, Ritchie O’ Neill 0-2, Dáire Dillion. This has been an enjoyable journey for this Junior team, where up to 40 different players have played in 15 league/ championship matches over the season, with 6 players promoted to the 1st team. 

Eadestown Junior men’s team play a strong Kill team in the final of the Reserve D Championship in Conleth’s Park, Newbridge on Saturday next 19th September at 3 pm. Eadestown needs to play to their full potential and have a full squad in order to overcome a strong Kill side, who have picked up a number of good additional players for recent matches. 

“Best wishes and good luck to our management team and to the Boys in Blue on Saturday 19th next at 3pm in Conleth's”
