On Sunday last our under 16 footballers travelled to Ballydehob to play Gabriel Óg .Newcestown started brightly and lead by 1-2 to 0-1 after ten minutes with Eugene Courtney grabbing the goal. Gabriels came back into the game at this stage and bagged a goal to close the gap. Approaching half time Newcestown tacked on further points to leave the half time score Newcestown 1-8 Gabriels 1-3

The second half saw our lads dominate possession with Greg O Sullivan particularly prominent at half back and Eugene Courtney a constant threat up front. Gabriels were however clinging on and trailed by only five points with ten minutes remaining.A goal by Shane Scanlon settled any Newcestown nerves and we ran out winners on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-7. This was a very polished performance with all players contributing. Team on the day : Shane Collins, Ciaran Desmond, Kieran Phelan, Timmy O Sullivan, Cathal Cadogan, James Kelleher, Greg O Sullivan, Sean O Donovan(0-2), Gerard Collins(0-1), Jordan McCabe, Colm Dinneen (0-7,0-5f), Peter O Riordan, Cian Goggin, Eugene Courtney(1-3) and Brendan O Mahony.
