Hoping for more success

THE St. Peter’s club, who recently celebrated promotion to the first division, will be hoping for more success when their under 21 team play Silverbridge in the Intermediate Championship Final this weekend.

The young Whites team, who pulled away from a strong Mullaghbawn side last Sunday following a period of extra time, have an outstanding chance of winning Sunday’s decider, which can make up for some reversals during previous Minor all County campaigns.

The St.Peter’s team, who were beaten in this seasons Intermediate Final against Killeavey, contained several under 21 players on the day. The Whites’ Minor player of the year Declan Kilroy, Conal McAlinden and the outstanding Tony Flynn were the goal scorers in their semi-final 3-15 to 2-09 win over the ‘bridge.

St.Peter’s will be particularly pleased at the fact that they had a huge squad available to choose from for last Sundays under 21 semi-final. Young James Magill, who played in goals in the Intermediate Final against Killeavey, started between the posts in front of a full back line of Drew Ginesi, Steven Fox and Conor Clarke, Michael Gogarty, Thomas Byrne and Sam Marshall made up the half back trio. Aaron Findin was joined at midfield by Alex Mackey with Gavin McCormick, Conal McAlinden and Tony Flynn lining out at half forward.
