The Night Before…

 

As big Stephen Jennings poured out his tea,

He thought to himself well goodness me!

An Ulster final for our great club

Should I finish this cuppa or head to the club?

 

The players all tucked up, asleep in their beds

Dreams of glory filling their heads, 

An historic day beckons for the amber and black 

Its time big Philly hit the sack

 

Big Paddy Flood snuggled his Teddy

He was telling himself ‘I was born ready’

Tucked up in his onsey big Joe pushed out the zeee’s, 

Frank Fitz grabbed the rosary and feel to his knees 

 

‘Oh, heavenly Father look down in thy graces, please keep the smiles on the wee childers faces’

‘If we win this final, I’ll give credit to you, now get off the fence and proclaim Niamh Éanna Abu’ 

 

Big Gibbo awoke with a bedhead from hell

Who the **** is ringing that bell?

It’s just me said Séamus, an bhuil tú réidh? 

As he cycled past on his merry way

 

The Healy boys slept in and fell from their bunks

Dónall Walsh asked his ma ‘have you seen my lucky trunks’ 

Eastwood still dreaming of that clearance of the line

Big McAuley oozing confidence, this is our time!!

 

The aul hands were buzzing as they slapped on the Brute 

Micky ‘The Cat’ had dry cleaned his suit 

The kids in club colours, the convoy was set 

Destination Ard Mhacha, a day not to forget 

 

Frank Fitz splashed holy water, as he paced down the bus

Have faith now boyos.  there is no need to fuss

I spoke to our Lord last night, the big lad has our back

Today he is wearing the yellow and black

2020 U16 Captain Conor McAlister tells us what it's like to play corner back1. Why do you enjoy playing Corner Back?*You can see th game unfolding ,anticipate danger and build attacks.2.Whats your favourite in game moment from this position*The McMullan semi-final victory against Dunloy was a fantastic performance as a defensive unit. We kept the Dunloy attacked to 3 scores.3. Who is your favourite player in this position*Cathal Barrett, he is the sort of corner back that gives corner forwards sleepless nights. He is utterly fearless in his approach he's also as skillful as he is tough.4.What advice do you have for future corner backs?*Don't just try to knock the ball away at any time on the tackle. Time your tackle to when he has to bounce the ball or solo. It's easier when he is not holding it.5. You captained the U16 team during the 2020 season. Do you think this affected your game?*Being captain was a great role. The team's dedication and hard work payed off as we improved throughout the season.(Via @PRógCairanNE @ciaranmcginley73 ) ...
