Adult Ladies Footballers under the Spotlight

The Naomh Olaf Ladies football team have started the season by taking part in the Floodlit Cup.  This event is organised by St. James Gaels and held in the Iveagh Grounds, Crumlin, and is an enjoyable competition.  After a good start the Naomh Olaf girls, under the command of Steven Murray and Paddy Feehan, found themselves facing Crumlin in the semi-final of the competition last Wednesday night.  Very much a game of two halves Crumlin were dominant in the first half leading 2:5 to 0:2 at the break. However with Amy Wilkins playing very well in midfield and Sue Howley covering every blade of grass from her centre half back position, the Naomh Olaf girls got hold of proceedings in the second half. They kept Crumlin scoreless and went on the rampage themselves to record a 4:8 to 2:5 success with Jordan Brewer and Sadie Lanigan proving too hot to handle.

The Naomh Olaf girls will play the final of this competition on Sunday next at 7:00 in the Iveagh Grounds.  All support appreciated!!
