Being awarded to both the League and championship winners
Sligo GAA was delighted last weekend to receive two new trophies to be awarded to the winners of the U13A League and the U13 A championships - the latter to be played later this year.
The two trophies were presented to the county in the Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence at Scarden on the occasion of this year U13A league finals which were played on Friday last.
The U13A League Cup was presented to the Club by the Feeney family of Ballygawley with the first recipients being the St John’s U13A team which won that competition on Friday last.
The U13A Championship trophy is being presented by the Kelly family of Drumiskabole, Carraroe.
The opportunity to inaugurate new trophies comes as a result of the realignment of underage boys football to the reclassification of minor to U17 years. Initially the U13 age group winners were given the trophies previously awarded to the winners of U14 competition winners but those trophies have now been retired.
Pictured receiving the U13A League Cup on behalf of Sligo GAA were Bernardine McGauran, Secretary Sligo GAA and Deirdre Gethins, Chair Coiste na nÓg, Sligo GAA with members of the Kelly family.
