V Glanmire, Sat 23rd June 2011, 12pm

We all gathered in carrig at 11.15am excited at the thought of another game with home advantage to us!!  Carrig were playing against the wind in the first half resulting in Glanmire scoring some early goals in first half.  Our girls, doing the blue and gold proud never gave up with some fine play by Grace, Louise & Kayla.
We had the advantage of the wind in the 2nd half and took advantage of same by swopping Megan Leahy into goals and Shakira into the full forward line.  The Carrig girls came out stronger in this half with each & every player contributing in some shape or form. 

Well done to Megan Leahy who saved some vital shots and for all the girls fighting to the bitter end.  Despite the pressure, our girls never gave up and came off the field happy & laughing despite being beaten.  Well done girls, you do the club very very proud.  At this age, its not always about winning, its about taking part, having fun!!!!



V Watergrasshill, Sat 18th June 2011 in Watergrasshill

We all met in the Carrig pitch at 10am and heading to Watergrasshill. In the first half, Carrig were playing against a very strong wind and the hill got off to a great start with some early goals. Watergrasshill had some very strong players which resulted in the carrig players being under pressure in the first half.
At half-time, Coach Caroline switched Louise Horgan to full back and Grace Cotter up to the Full Forward line. These two fine players abley assited by Kayla and Taylor combined well to try and put the strong hill side under pressure.
Our girls never gave up and continued to play 110% (every coach & managers dream!) but unfortunately were not strong enough to combat the Watergrasshill side who proved worthy winners at the end of a fine game.
Well done to all the girls and congrats to Leah Buckley who made her debut today in corner back position.




League v Cloyne in Carrigtwohill on Monday 30th May 2011
Carrig 3-1 Cloyne 2-1 

Home advantage to us, we played Cloyne Monday 30th - this time no confusion as to start time!!!!  Missing only 3 of our 21 panel of players, we had a strong contingency from the word go. As Cloyne had only 16 players, both teams started off th match with 16 players each, playing a 3 person format from the back line all the way to the forward line with Emma Burke in goals.
Carrig played with the wind in the first half and both our wing back line and mid-fielders took advantage by kicking great ball into Grace Cotter who scored 2 goals in very quick succession, followed by a point half way into the first half. Cloyne  responded on the 15th minute with a lovely point - this only point a true reflection of the work of the backs keeping the Cloyne forwards out.

Going into the 2nd half with a 2-1 to 0-1 lead, Coach Caroline made some important changes to ensure that we kept our lead and also aware of the fact that Cloyne had wind advantage, the game could turn around at any stage.....main changes included Grace Cotter going back to Full Back, Louise Horgan taking control of Mid-field and Kayla O Riordan dominating centre back.  Despite great work from all our backs including a great game by Clara, Cloyne within first 10 mns responded with 2 goals in quick succession. 
Never ones to hang our heads, the players fought tenanciously in hope of adding to their scoreline which came around the 16th minute by way of a goal from Rachael O Gorman. Carrig finished the game winning by a clear goal.
Each and everyone of the girls played 110% with some great performances by Una O Brien, Clara McCarthy etc.  Well done girls and continued improvement over the next few months.

It has to be noted that Cloyne and Carrigtwohill were very much on similar grounds in terms of age and skills and a future challenge match along with a picnic is in the pipeline.  The social side of the team is as important as the training / matches!!!!
Thanks to Maurice Fitzgerald from Lisgoold who refereed the match and engaged the girls by explaining the fouls as and how they happened.
Team: Shakira, Megan, Clara, Moya, Emma, Rebecca, Louise, Laura, Kayla, Taylor, Sinead, Rachael, Grace C, Una, Stephanie,Sophie, Ola, Emma Burke.




League v Lisgoold in Lisgoold on on Friday 27th May 2011
Carrig 0-1 Lisgoold 0-0 

Lisgoold travelled to Carrigtwohill on Friday 27th May with a panel of 13 players to play us.  Confusion as regard to start time meant that Carrig were fluttering to get the match started asap - Carrig conceded the game to Lisgoold at this point but anxious to play a game as match practice for all the girls is a must especially as  have done very well so far in their matches and training.
It was a game of both halves with both teams pretty even in terms of ages & skills.  We were unlucky on several occasions not to convert our scores and well done to all the forwards who chased and hassled the Lisgoold backs.................It must be remarked that especially for our more younger and newer players, they could be seen miming " 1,2,3,4, bounce, 1,2,3,4" - well done to Sinead O Connell who converted the only point of the match.
Both our mid-fielders played a great role in receiving the ball the ball from the backs  and distributing to the forward line.
A great job by the backs ensured that the Lisgoold forwards did not get a chance to get too close to the goals - the backs job is to protect the goalkeeper, clear the ball out to the wings thus ensuring no scores.
Well done to all the girls, their skills and match experience continues to improve as the weeks go on, word has it that some of the girls are practicing at home.
This is very much a family affair with continued support of the parents, helping on the sidelines, in the dressing rooms etc.  It is very much appreciated by all involved!!!!




League v Mayfield in Mayfield on Sunday 15th May  2011
Carrig 4-5 Mayfield 5-2 

The Carrig girls travelled to Mayfield Sunday morning 15th May.  As luck would have it, Mayfield had only a panel of 11 players so both teams started out playing 11 aside.
Physically Mayfield were bigger and slightly daunting to our own girls but this did not curtail their enthusiasm and fight for the ball.  Given that both teams were evenly matched in terms of skills & match play, an exciting first half was observed by all those on the side line.  Our very own Sinead O Connell was the 1st player to put a score on the table with a fine point from 14 metres out.  Mayfield had the advantage in the 1st half by playing downhill and with the wind behind them, giving them a 2-1 advantage at half time.  Some fine saves by wee Sophie O Connor (only 7!) kept this deficit at bay!

Going into the 2nd half Carrig upped their game, fighting tenaciously, moving the ball forward and adding goals & points alike to the score board.  Some fine defending by our backs and great runs forward resulted in Carrig adding 4-3 to their overall match score at full-time, earning them a well deserved draw!!  Final score Carrig 4-5 to Mayfield 5-2.
This was a great result for the girls and a sincere thanks to Mayfield whom like ourselves are starting off with a lot of very new players at this age group.  All of us on the U10 team would like to say thanks to Mayfield players and management for a very sporting and entertaining game.
A special congratulation to Moya O Riordan who touched the ball 100 times during the match.... well done Moya!!



Carrigtwohill v Aghada

Our first outing of the season took us to Aghada on Easter Monday with a panel of 14.  It was obvious from the first whistle we were up against a very strong and mature U10 Aghada  team - our panel of 21 players this year of new recruits with just 7 from last year’s U10 team. 
However our new recruits displayed fierce willpower & determination showing off their new skills they have learnt over the past few weeks.  It goes without saying that it was a pleasure to see our more experienced players showing leadership on the field & helping the new girls find their feet. 
While the final result was a win for Aghada, I am sure that all the parents, aunts & uncles would agree that it was a fantastic hour of enjoyment to see their little princesses doing the blue and gold jersey proud.  Well done girls!!

Team: Shakira Sadia, Grace Cotter, Laura Cotter, Kayla O Riordan, Moya O Riordan, Rachael O Gorman, Magda Kinjanka, Ola Kwidzinska, Louise Horgan, Stephanie Bunce, Sophie O Connor Grace, Taylor Keohane, Rebekah Cashman, Sinead O Connell,

Training continues every Wednesday at 2.45pm & finishes at 4pm - water & gum shields are necessary & when weather hot, a little sun tan lotion. 


Happy 10th Birthday to Stephanie Bunce who celebrated the big day during her Easter Holidays.
