Carrick United’s U-14 schoolgirls team wins League final and U-16 squad wins Cryuff Cup

The victorious Carrick United U-14 team

Carrick United U-14 schoolgirls defeated a determined Tramore AFC team 2-1 in the Schoolgirls League U-14 Cup Final last Thursday. 

 A special mention must go to Carrick Utd defender Isobel Foley. Isobel travelled back from Thailand on the day of the match only arriving at the airport five hours before kick off. 

That didn't stop Isobel from ensuring that she played in the cup final and produced a stormer of a performance. 

It was Isobel's second cup final in a month as she is also a member of the club's U-12 squad  which contested the U-12 Cup final against Bohs. It's dedication like that which shows the League is in good hands with this generation of girls.

Carrick Utd. congratulates the U-14 team on their great victory and commiserates with the  Tramore players who can hold their heads up high and no doubt based on their display.

   Cryuff Cup win

Meanwhile, Carrick Utd U-16B team played in the annual end of season Cryuff Cup  in Tramore last Saturday. Other teams involved were Tramore B, Tramore C and Kilmacow.

They played the unbeaten Kilmacow in the final and Carrick won the game 1-0.

 The goal was scoared by Oisín Crowley after some great work from Josh O’Sullivan.
