DONAL POWELL U-10 TOURNAMENT
Saturday 3th Sept at 10am sees the start of our annual Donal Powell Tournament. As per each year, a lot of hard work has been put in over the previous months to ensure the smooth running of the Tournament. The committee tasked with its smooth running have once again shown their dedication, as we have 29 teams involved with 6 pitches being utilised. Many club members and friends will be involved on the day, as will the Powell family who have strongly supported this sporting feast of under-age footballing talent from it's inception.
The young man who this Tournament is named after tragically died at the early age of 27 back in March 1993. Donal is fondly remembered by Pearse Óg Gaels for his footballing ability and his warm personality. He was a prominent under-age player, mostly starring at full forward, winning County Championship medals at all grades from Juvenile to Senior. At Minor level he really excelled with his goals winning many tight games.
Donal had a presence both on and off the field of play. His humour was infectious with his jesting lighting up many a changing room or keeping his team mates in mirth back in the old Social Club. The banter was always mighty when Donal was in your company where he could easily deflate any ego that was rising just that little bit too much!
Not only did Donal contribute to the Club through playing but he was also instrumental in setting up our Under 10 age group within it. He helped out also with other youth teams and indeed had just been appointed Under 14 Team Manager in the weeks previous to his untimely death. It was for these reasons that the Club saw fit to establish an Under 10 competition in his memory and it is testament to his popularity that it has grew to it's present size.
So if you are fortunate to be at Pearse Óg Park and witness young Gaels giving their all and having great fun doing so, spare a thought for a young Gael no longer with us but whose spirit enthuses that. See you all there.

Well done to our two young U-8 teams who travelled to Keady on Saturday for the Keady Michael Dwyers U-8 football blitz.
Our two teams got off to a flying start winning matches against Madden, Crossmaglen, Derrynoose & Clontibret, only loosing to hosts Keady, which guaranteed both our teams a place in the Final.
Two enthralling games then took place between the hosts & our young gaels with both our teams loosing by the narrowest of margins. The skill on display was exceptional & each child should be extremely proud of their efforts. Many thanks to Owen & Gareth for their help with the teams, to all the parents/grandparents & family members for their continued support & to Keady Michael Dwyers for all your hospitality. Training continues on Wednesday evening from 6-7pm. Full attendance required in preparation for upcoming tournaments. Contact BJ 07562009907.
U-10 Boys Report/Training
On Saturday last our Under 10s travelled to Derrynoose for their annual Paddy Mc Grane cup, As usual we entered our Green and Gold teams and both teams performed exceptionally well in the group stages to qualify for the sem- finals of the cup and the plate respectively. In the Plate semi-final our young gaels had a good win over Keady to set up a final with Scotstown . In a hotly contested game our young team lost narrowly but performed with great heart and were a little unlucky on the day. In the cup semi final our Green team met Clontibret and in a well contested game eventually ran out deserving winners setting up a final against the hosts Derrynoose. In the final our gaels fought hard every step of the way but lost out by one point. Great credit must go to all our young gaels on the day and also to all our parents and supporters who gave us fantastic encouragement all day.
Next up is our Donal Powell Tournament next Saturday 3rd Sept. Training continues Wednesday night this week 6pm to 7pm at Pearse Og Park, full attendance required.
U-10 Girls Report/Training
Our young U-10 girls travelled to Keady on Sunday morning to participate in Keady Michael Dwyers U-10 girls blitz.
The girls first game seen them face an accomplished Mullabrack but despite the girls inexperience they battled on with determination. Next up was Clann Éireann & the girls got into a good rhythm making good use of the opportunities given to them securing a much needed win. They progressed on to the semi final of the shield to be placed against Keady. The girls got off to a good start & our back line were a force to be reckoned with, keeping the score line down to a single point at half time. The girls lined out for the second half & again got off to a good start pointing to bring the game level, they battled on but a few lucky frees for Keady seen our young girls loose out by the narrowest of margins. It was a great day all round. Thanks to all the girls & to the parents for your continued support and to Keady Michael Dwyers for a well run tournament.
