Well done to all the Boyne 2005's U11 team, We had a great season which kicked off with 59 registered players the largest squad in Dublin and the North East.

U11 Boyne Vs Greystones

Our first real squad turn out of the season 49 players out of our 60 players,  Some close fought games Greystones key players opened up a hole in all 3 teams defences,
My knights team were strong in holiding position, rucking counter ruck scrum and line out, it was just the tackling that allowed greystones to win 2 out of 3 matches. We won line outs and scrums that were not our ball for the first time which is a great step forward, well done to all.

Malahide Vs Boyne U11

Stunning morning in Malahide, great set up over there, we had 3 teams only 56% of our squad traveled, they played very well,  Highlight of the day was Caélán Try Sounded fantastic well done Caélán

U11 End of season trip to Carlingford

The U11 team met at Shamrock Lodge early on Sunday (May 17th) destination Carlingford Activity Centre for their final adventure of the season.
22 players togged out for a much anticipated laser battle in the Carlingford forest. The boys fought it out valiantly for three hours and returned battle weary and famished to enjoy a substantial lunch. When their appetites had finally been sated, the boys, coaches and travelling parents gathered for the end of season presentation.
