Dowling Family Cup 2014

St. Martins U12’s continued their busy schedule when hosting Bennettsbridge in the Dowling family Cup last Sunday morning.  In ideal conditions both teams served up an outstanding show full of all the best that this great game has to offer.  There have been many great games between the two sides over the last few years and this latest instalment didnt disappoint.

After a good start with two early points St. Martins got on top and added some great scores. Bennettsbridge battled back bravely and to their credit got some great scores of their own. After an action packed second half with the action swinging from end to end our lads held out for a well deserved victory and a delighted captain Bill Dowling and vice captain Conor Egan received the Dowling Cup from his Grandfather Tom.

Refreshments kindly sponsored by the Dowling family were then served and enjoyed by all.  The many visitors were also highly impressed with the new car parking facilities and of course the pitch which was as usual in perfect condition.


Special thanks to all who helped out to make the day a great sucess, also to the lads parents who make the effort to get the lads to training and matches, indeed large attendances have been a feature of the year so far and of course to all the panel who have worked very hard all year and victory in The Dowling Cup was just reward for all their effort.
