DDSL ON TOP IN BALLYOWEN CONTEST

SFAI SUBWAY UNDER-12 CHAMPIONSHIP

DDSL………2 SOUTH DUBLIN LEAGUE……….0

By NIALL SCULLY

THE Ballyowen congregation were charmed with the quality of the football. The ball was humming along the carpet.

These young DDSL and South Dublin boys have never heard of Row Z. Both sides wanted to get it down and play. And keep it on the roundabout.

And they did that so very well. The ball was their best friend. And they tried to make sure that every pass had a happy landing.

If this is the future of Irish football, everybody will want a ticket for the show.

Two goals crafted at Elmdale saw the DDSL home. James Lonergan and Charlie Hamilton got them. The pride of Ballyfermot.

The DDSL manager, Andy Doyle, had praise for the two teams. “It was an excellent match. There was plenty of good football played.”

Andy felt the first goal just before the break was key. “It came at a good time. We settled down after that. We grew in confidence.

“We moved the ball very well. Our support play was much better. Our passing was first-class and we created more chances in the second half.

“The South Dublin defended very well and I have to salute their goalkeeper who made some outstanding saves.”    

Andy is well pleased with the campaign. “Yes, it’s going nicely. And the good thing is that we have used 24 players in the four matches.

“The main thing we look for is consistency. We set high standards, and we want to maintain them. And, in fairness, all the players are striving to do that. They are working very hard.”  

SDFL: Coleman O’Higgins, Cian Whelan, Gavin Maudney, Jack Nolan, Zach Maughan, Lee Brennan, Rian Robertson, Callum O’Connor, Bradley Rourke, Cillian Murphy, Josh Maughan, Kyle O’Connor.

DDSL: Rocco Byrne; Rhys Knight, Ivan Gramminschii, Taylor McCarthy, Conor Lougheed, Eric Schutte, James Bailey, Richie Vodo, James Lonegran, Janek Sarwinksi, Cian Meleady, Chris Conlon, Charlie Hamilton, Zak Reddy, Jack Ellis
