U8's have the honor of playing Skerries U8 on Sat April 13th pre the senior AIL Game of Boyne V Skerries. This is a great oppertunity for the kids to see their senior team playing their last match of the season.
Please make sure your child always has their gum shield or they cannot play .
A big thank you from all the coaches to all the parents who brought the lads week in week out to every match, come rain or shine... well maybe not to much shine this season.
about 36 of our 46 strong team travelled to every match far out weighing every other club we played. We hope all the players enjoyed the season as much as we did. They made huge leaps forward as a squad I personally was very proud of every single players development this season off and on the pitch.
For the first time this year, dry grass and the sun was out... 9.30am the kids turn up without track suits.. you knew it was going to be a great day of rugby..
Venue: Armagh Rugby Club, Palace Grounds, Friary Road, Armagh. Meet 9:15 AM Please give yourself plenty of time as the traffic entering Armagh was very heavy last year and some players were late. (Travel time approx 1hr 30mins) There will be two under 8 teams involved. Six games each of 10 minutes running up to 2:00 PM. There will be plenty of sitting about so we would encourage parents to bring deck chairs, picnic, hot drinks and warm clothes for all. It is a great days rugby and hopefully the sun will shine!
Well probably our first nice morning in 4 months, weather was warm kids could warm up without there coats, gloves hats water proofs... Great to able to play on the Navan Main pitch they fielded 21 players, Boyne travelled with our usual 35, fielding 3 teams and some volunteers to play for Navan. As one of the Navan coaches said to me it shows great character that the kids are happy to Volunteer to take direction to go and play for another side, certainly shows there love of rugby I am thinking of Tadgh K who always has his hand up to swap sides, well done Tadgh..
We were lucky enough to be invited down to a 7pm kickoff at Dundalk under the flood lights, feedback from the parents was great, more off them... lots of shouts from the touch line a very tight game, Dundalk were excellent but well matched by our lads.. Even for us England fans :-) it was by far the best match of the weekend, 6 nations have nothing on the Boyne under 8's well done lads..
Boyne U8’s @ Ashbourne we had a strong turn out by Boyne had 3 teams (34 players out of our 48 turning up).
All 3 teams were excellent really showing there understanding of the game, Some great team play and passing, the breakdown is starting to be a key point of our play, holding positions, ripping and counter rucking is all coming together. Most of the lads now are finding it less difficult to tackle with one or 2 outstanding players who seem to have perfected it.
This week Sunday January 20th U8 Blitz at Ardee with Balbriggan and Boyne
What a great day, Warm for December soft ground, we managed 3 teams. 36 players came for a well organized blitz.
Wow what a great start to the season, the sun shinning, food on the BBQ, The club looked fantastic the new pitch really looks the part.
