Last Saturday saw a very busy morning at Casey park. First up were the u-6 boys who played Rosslare Strand and were 6-1 winners after a very exciting game.Then the u-9 boys also faced Rosslare Strand and this ten goal thriller was something to behold even though the home side lost out on a 6-4 scoreline.The u-12 boys took on Shamrock Rovers in a well contested game but lost out on a 1-0 scoreline.The home side were denied at least a share of the spoils by some fine goal keeping from the visiting keeper.Next up were the u-12 girls who were deserving winners versus Seaview and finally the u-16 girls entertained Ballindaggin and despite playing some fine football the home side failed to collect any of the points on offer.
