Boys underage
The Boyle GAA Boys youth league campaigns kicked of this weekend. It was an early start to the league season, with up first was our U16 lads who put up spirited game to St Brigids in Kiltoom. With just the bare minimum 15 available for selection the lads made a good account of themselves going toe to toe with a strong St Brigids side throughout the game. At half time they only were trailing by 2 points and then nearing the end and pushing for a goal to equal the tie got caught on the break as St Brigids putting to more points on board to seal the win by 5 points. This was a great performance from our lads and a young u16 side, with a good few lads from the u14 team stepping up to the mark to make up the 15-man team. Well done management and players and thanks to the u14 lads for stepping into to the fray
