Blessington U10’s Runners Up in Newbridge Easter Shield

Onwards & Upwards, Well done to Liam and his U10’s 
The lads have endured a tough season so far but entered the competition in positive mood. First game was against Shamrock Rovers who had a lot of talent on show, which eventually turned into a lot of possession on the pitch. However with James Durkin returning from injury he made an immediate impact sitting in front of our back 3 breaking up attacks before they got anywhere near the danger area. Zach Broe also made some superb saves keeping us in the game before Jack Roberts stepped up to hit the 1st of his free kick goals on the day into the top corner to put Blesso in-front. This did not deter Rovers as they kept the pressure on which eventually led to a penalty to tie the game 1-1. An excellent result and start to the competition, however the following game we never got going and eventually lost 3-0 conceding another penalty along the way.
Third game up and the lads went out with renewed energy and focus. This time it was midfield and forwards that took the spotlight, with Sean Gallagher, Eoin Murphy, Lewis Satella, and Alex Punsley passing and moving the ball around splendidly to put 4 past Newbridge Town with goals for Sean and Jack (hat-trick) to win this match comfortably. With a win, draw, and a loss we narrowly lost out in playing for the Cup on goal difference but instead headed for the shield.
With 3 matches under their belts already there was a real sense of togetherness growing particularly across the back line with Matt O’Neill, Brian Gilroy and Alex Mullaly looking more and more confident as a unit. It was now the quarter finals and no room for errors and they did brilliantly to finish the game 0-0. Time for penalties and men to stand-up and take responsibility for their team and also an opportunity for a hero to emerge. Zach saved two penalties while Matt and Sean scored theirs to help us through to the Semi’s as Blessington won the shoot out 2-1.
With four matches played in sizzling heat there were some tired legs going into the semi final. Concentration was paramount as substitutions were used more frequently to keep energy levels topped up. However the lads were now enjoying their football and went into a comfortable 2-0 lead before half time. The first coming from a mazy run from midfield by Alex (Punsley) who eventually slotted the ball past the oncoming keeper and the second from another free kick from Jack which hit the upright before going in over the line. Despite conceding a late goal, the lads always had this game under control and made their way to the final with relative ease. It was a long day already and one that felt longer due to low expectations entering the competition but the lads went into battle one last time and gave everything they had to finish their day in glory. Each and everyone of them ran themselves into the ground while remaining composed on the ball and organized in defense. In a very close encounter with few chances created by either team with less than a minute away from penalties they conceded a free kick just outside the box which was subsequently delivered into the top corner and the match was lost in a moment. A tremendous effort from the lads throughout the day. Some very proud parents on the sideline who cheered and applauded great football and some cracking goals to remember. On-wards and upwards from here on in…

FAI Summer Camp – Crosschapel

FAI Summer Camp ( Blessington FC)

Venue Crosschapel

11th – 15 th August.

The eFlow FAI Summer Soccer School programme enters its 18th year in 2014. Over the years, the camps have grown to become the largest programme in the Grassroots Department of the Football Association of Ireland.

The camps aim to provide children between the ages of 6 and 14 the opportunity to attend a week-long football-oriented summer camp over the holiday period. Every year boys and girls of all abilities turn out to enjoy five days of fun and football. It doesn’t matter if you’re just a beginner or if you have our sights set on Robbie Keane’s number 10 shirt, you will get a lot out of the Summer Soccer Schools.

Football is, ultimately, a game and at the eFlow FAI Summer Soccer Schools we believe games should be fun. While participants will learn new skills and tricks, the most important element of our camps is that they are fun and that all children enjoy them.

Our camps are fully inclusive, so if your child has a disability he/she is more than welcome. If your child requires additional assistance, no problem – we’ll get a coach in to specifically ensure that your son or daughter has a fantastic experience. Every child should have access to play football, and we recognise that sometimes it’s just a little extra assistance that will enable them to flourish. When you’re making your booking, be sure to flag if your child’s condition warrants one-to-one coaching and we’ll take care of it.

We have had some famous graduates of the Summer Soccer Schools throughout the years. Stephen Ward, John O’Shea, Megan Campbell, Ciara Grant and Stephanie Roche all attended their local Summer Soccer School as children and look at how much they’ve achieved in their football careers! Here’s a top tip – Megan, Ciara and Stephanie coach on camps in Louth, Donegal and Dublin so if you’re on a camp in either of these counties keep an eye out for them!

W Madden League Cup Final

Blessington U11’s 0 – 2 Beechwood U11’s

This was 3rd time these two teams met this season and previous matches were extremely tight affairs and with a sizable cro;ugwd supporting the two teams,we knew we were going to be in for a treat.

Chances were minimal in the first ten minutes of the match with both teams defense dominant, while midfield were still sizing each other out. Beechwood’s David Blake had a great shot saved by MikeyO’Toole early on and Blesso’s Conor O’Toole was unlucky with his snap shot from out side the box which was saved by Ben Tiernan in the Beechwood goal. Beechwood grew into this game and had a great five minute period where they spurned two glorious chances, first from a corner Luca Hasset headed just by the post from close range, straight after this attach Beechwood were thwarted again, the Blesso keeper who was having an impressive first half pulled off a great save from Charlie Mulderry, It was Blesso’s time to flex their muscles and Sean Broderick did brilliantly to weave in between two players and unleashed a shot, unfortunately the Beechwood keeper was equal to the task and pulled the ball in comfortably. Two minutes later Dean O’Connor hit a shot from outside the box which again was saved well by the Beechwood Keeper. Blesso were rallying in the dying minutes of the first half and should have done better from a brilliant corner from Ben Fitzsimmons which was missed by a ruck of players. (H-T 0-0)

The second half started off much like the first with both teams sizing each other out and both defenses still on top. Ben Fitzsimmons had a great free kick which was blocked in the six yard box and cleared to safety and at the other end Rich Towagh was unlucky with a header which flew inches by the post. Beechwood again started to exert pressure on the Blesso defense and were unlucky not to be ahead when after a mad scramble in the Blesso box, Dan Cooney finally got the ball clear to safety after a brilliant last ditch challenge preventing a certain goal. Beechwood really were on top now during this period and in a two minute period scored two goals both by their lively Charlie Mulderry, first one was a tap in after a great save from the Blesso keeper and the second a fine team goal with some great interplay between Sam Tackberry and Ryan Nugent fed in Charlie, this time he kept his cool and slotted a lovely shot into the net. Beechwoods Andrew Frazer flashed another great chance by the post soon after this and then Mikey O’Toole pulled off a great double save first from Liam Flannagan and Eoin O’Riordan on the rebound. Blesso rallied in the later stages of the match and Dean Nielan was unlucky not to score from Ben Fitzsimmons freekick. Finally the referee blew his whistle and the game was up. Blessington showed great character to keep fighting to the end and were gracious in defeat, Beechwood were worthy winners and at times played some wonderful football.
