26 Dec VII POWER- GOL CUP: Congratulations to St. Kevin’s Boys
Below is a message of congratulations to all involved from St. Kevin’s Boys who were involved at the VII Power – Gol Cup.
Well done to managers Philip Grehan, Stuart Grehan and John Leonard and their squad of players who took part and performed with distinction in last weekends VII Power Gold Cup in Barcelona and were it not for some bad luck around the oppositions goals they would have figured in the latter stages of what is THE top tournament for 12 year olds in Europe.
Straight off the plane and straight into action our under 12 DDSL Premier team played their first game in the VII Power – Gol Cup (Formerly Powerade Cup) in Barcelona.
In their group of six teams they started against Real Madrid and put in an excellent performance in a game which finished 0-0.
The post twice denied them a better result than a 2-1 defeat against Celta De Vigo in their second game where they led through a Kevin Zeffi goal only to go down to two late goals in another very good performance.
They put in another good performance against host club Cornelia but missed chances cost them dearly in a tight game going down 1-0 as it did In their next game against Sant Cugat losing 2-1 but they ended with a 3-3 In their final group game against Bermuda side Performance F C.
As part of the trip the players and managers took in the La Liga on Sunday night between Espanyol and Barcelona.
