Raheens GAA

Well done to the U-21 team who in front of a large crowd at Raheens secured a thrilling win over Clane. In winning the match Raheens played some lovely passing moves and were full value for the win, stubbornly holding on to their lead till the long awaited final whistle.

It’s very pleasing to see us beating top level ‘A’ teams and it bodes well for the future.

Best for Raheens were man of the match Alan Igoe, who gave an exhibition of free taking, Paddy O’Brien who made a couple of super dispossessions, one of which was a goal saver. Solid as ever was Graham Waters, Niall Connolly, John Jennings, Gareth Malone, Liam Power and Daithí Ivers, the whole team all fought very hard.

Prosperous United AFC

We would like to thank Naas AFC for the loan of a set of goals last weekend. Our goals were removed from the container they were stored in without our knowledge so without the help of Naas AFC a lot of children would have been without football last weekend.

We would also like to thank Davy Gartland for transporting the goalposts for us. Winter training has now commenced for all teams. Contact Ronan on 087-6235353 for details on times and venue. The last man standing competition is going into its eight week and there are still some people from Prosperous Club standing!!!
