Boyne U12s season is well underway now having played 5 fixtures already this season.
Our large squad of over 40 players seem very keen to improve this season showing up in great numbers for training twice a week (Wednesday & Saturday) and matches every 2nd Sunday. New squad members are starting to make an impression with the likes of Gerard, Cathal O’M, Tom and Tanner blending into the squad seamlessly.
We started our season away to a strong Navan squad at the Bru na Boinne event in late Sept followed by two more away fixtures against Dundalk and Naas. Thanks to all the chauffeurs on the early Sunday mornings especially for the long trips to the likes of Naas. Then in the last two weeks we have had home fixtures against Skerries and Suttonians in Shamrock Lodge.
The early seasons signs are very encouraging with comprehensive wins over Dundalk, Skerries & Suttonians, and very competitive narrow victories away to strong squads from Navan & Naas.
Strong Running, Aggressive Rucking and Accurate Passing are becoming more and more evident after every match. All of the boys are improving every week with more and more lads getting more involved in the games than they did in previous seasons. Our attacking play is great to watch most of the time, except when we decide to run back towards the ruck, and as coaches we will work towards attacking the wide open spaces for the rest of the season. Our defence/tackling can be hot and cold and we will continue to work on better body positions and being more aggressive in the tackle.
Big Thank You to all of the Mums and (Dads?) for the refreshments, for all of the kids and our visitors after the home fixtures. All of the coaches really appreciate your help on match days.
Our next fixture is against Old Wesley in Donnybrook on Sunday 24th of November.
