U16s Tullamore 0 - 0 Boyne

Tullamore u16s played Boyne in their opening match of the Leinster Intermediate League in the Harriers. Tullamore were the quicker of the two to settle and penetrated the Boyne circle on a number occasions but were unable to find the opening goal. Boyne were always quick on the counterattack keeping Tullamore backs on their toes. The second half was played at a ferocious pace and both goalkeepers had to pull off some great saves. The final whistle blew as Tullamore were once again on the attack. But in the end the spoils were shared with a 0-0 result. A great start for this Tullamore team in this higher Leinster league. Tullamore: Suzannah Raben, Jessica Raben, Catherine Lambe, Ellen Crowley, Aoife Redmond, Siobhan Greene, Katie Healy, Lizzy Burns, Amalie LeBourhis, Emily Thomas, Aishling Flaherty, Emily Mulrooney, Ruth Flaherty, Roisin Dunne, Eadbha Jordan (captain).

U14s 8 a-side Leinster League

Tullamore U14s "Blue Tigers" played their first league match in the 8-a-side format away to Skerries on Sunday last. Tullamore settled into the game very quickly and with some great forward play found themselves 2-0 up at halftime. Skerries were unlucky not to get a goal back when the ball came back off the post but Tullamore's defence was alert to the danger and cleared the ball out. The game finished with a further two goals in the second half to Tullamore, final score 4-0 a great start to the season.  Thank you to coaches and parents for making the trip to Skerries. Training continues on Tuesdays at 7pm. Tullamore: Alice Ward, Aine Byrne, Ella Gilmartin, Aoibheann Birney, Elodie Lebourhis, Jane Smith, Hannah Bannisssdi, Julia Slattery, Sunniva Johnson and Amy Bagnall.
