Youth Team Cup Wins
It was generally a very successful weekend for our Galway Clinic sponsored community soccer club Maree/Oranmore fc with a plethora of club sides in action and our younger kids academy showing very strong numbers. Both u17/u18 club sides advanced in Connacht Cup u18 action in Drom and Oranmore on Sunday last. The u17/u18 Premier side played fine football to win 4-3 against Salthill Devon A in Oranmore with the goals coming from a brace from Sean Delany, Alan Greene and an og to secure an excellent win. The u17/u18 Division 1 mainly made up primarily of u17 club players had a fine win also in the Connacht u18 cup in Drom emerging with a well merited 4-3 victory with Dean Mooney netting four with aplomb with Thomas Heraghty and Oliver McCamley doing very well in the heart of the defence.
The u14 Premier side had a fine 4-0 League win in Drom on Saturday last in the League with Gavin Smyth notching a brace and Tom Delany and Steven Healy also on the scoresheet in a very fine performance. The u14 division 2 side played in a thriller against near neighbours and friends Colga fc and came out on the right side of a 5-4 win in a game where a draw might have been the fairest outcome, where Seamie Fallon, Shane Goodwin, Maxime Lukjonov and a brace from Christine Kowaczyk secured the win in a game well reffed by Tommy Murphy.
Other Age Groups
The u13 Premier side battled well against a strong Mervue side and despite a Ryan O Donnell strike went down 3-1 to the visitors last sunday in Oranmore.
