It is not mandatory for existing players to attend the trial night. But if anyone does not intend attending the trial, we would appreciate if you could confirm whether or not they plan to play with the club next year.

A narrow defeat in our final match of the season
It was a lovely sunny evening and all the team played very well. Niamh, Dylan and Zhudi all had plenty of good shots in the first half, but the Dunshaughlin goalie was on top form to keep a clean sheet. At the other end of the pitch Dunshaughin managed to get a lucky ball lobbed over the head of Omar who was our goalie for the night.
In the second half our strong defence team of Frank and Andy was made even stronger by a brilliant performance from Colin which earned him the title of man-of-the-match. However, Dunshaughlin managed to score another goal in the second half to leave the final score at 2-0.
Overall the tam can be proud of a great performance on Monday night and all though the season. We ended up in sixth place in the league which is a great result for our first season together. I am looking forward to next season already.

Rivervalley prove too strong
The second half was barely started when Rivervalley stretched their lead to 3-0. Castleknock fought back bravely and it looked like they might even get back into the game, but Rivervalley scored again in the final minute to leave the final score at 4-0.
We can only hope that Dunshaughlin prove to be easier opposition on Monday next.

Some bad luck leads to defeat in a high scoring game
We started off the match strongly and has several good chances early in the game. However, the referee awarded a penalty against us in a very harsh hand-ball decision. Maynooth slotted the ball into the corner of the net to go in front.
Castleknock continued to dominate the exchanges and it seemed like it would only be a short time before we got an equaliser. However, our luck turned even worse when twice in a row Maynooth shots were deflected off defenders to slip past Andy to give Maynooth a three goal lead. This run of bad luck seemed to knock our confidence and Castleknock lost concentration. Maynooth took advantage of that to score two more well deserved goals before half time.
Gavin gave a inspiring half time speech so the team came out much stronger after half time. Nado, Niamh and Niamh strung some great passes together and then Omar scored a great goal to leave the score at 5-1. Maynooth were quick on the counter attack and managed to stretch their lead to 6-1. However, Castleknock did not let this lead distract them and they continued to attack strongly. Omar managed to get a further 2 goals to complete his hat-trick.
All the team played well, and I was especially pleased to see that the passing is getting much better. The man-of-the-match award goes to Frank who had a great game in defence.
