On a day that felt more like mid September than November, our Junior Section delivered super results to match the beautiful weather.

It was an early start for our 3rd-5th class girls who hosted North Dublin while our 1st and 2nd class age groups travelled to the National Sports Campus.

Next up were our U10 Boys who hosted Pembroke Wanderers at home.

Our U16 girls were given a "by" to the next round of the Jacqui Potter Cup, therefore, they used the pitch time for an extra, intensive, training session. Thanks to Mukhtar for running this slot.

Last to play were our U14 Boys who played Monkstown away in a league match. The boys brought their A game and delivered a wonderful performance resulting in a comprehensive win in South Co Dublin. Well done to all for the hard work at training with Imran - it is paying off.

There was a great turnout at all blitzes with fantastic skills and passing of the ball on display and lots of fun, enjoyment and great sportsmanship.
A massive thank you to all the Coaches, Umpires, supporters and, of course, all our fantastic young players. Finally, many thanks to Pembroke Wanderers and North Dublin for traveling.

Today saw three of our underage girls teams compete against YMCA at 2nd yr,1st yr and 6th class age level.

First up was our 2nd year girls who faced a strong attacking YMCA side, with Aoife Gleeson playing a stormer in goals in the first half and with Mukhtar and Matt's half time inspirational talk the girls turned the game around. Dominating in the second half resulting in a second goal scored from link up play and coming away with the 3 important league points.

YMCA (0) vs Portrane (2)

Next up was our 1st year girls who played a strong attacking game and kept possesion for the majority of the match, also coming away with a comprehensive 6-2 win.

X8 Blue League 1
YMCA (2) vs Portrane (6)
Goal Scorers: (Holly Harris x2, Aisling Rowney, Sophie O’Neill, Ella Moynihan, Katie Lloyd) .

Our last girls match was our 6th class green group who drew 3-3 against YMCA with YMCA coming back from 3-0 down to end the match 3-3.

Finally but by no means least our U12 boys participated in a mixed club blitz in Monkstown, the opposition consisted of clubs from Monkstown, Corinthians and Pembroke. Some good skills were on display and Ewan our new goalkeeper made some outstanding saves. Great experience for our boys to play against some of the bigger clubs.

It was very difficult playing conditions today for our players,umpires and coaches. Well done to everyone involved especially those who give up a lot of their weekend supporting both the senior and junior sections of the club.

Thanks to our two hosts Monkstown and YMCA.
