The recent success story of Tinryland juvenile G.F.C. continued last week when the U12 team brought home the McDonalds Co. Carlow (B) championship. In the replay against O'Hanrahan's Tinryland showed a major improvement on the drawn game to run out winners on a score of 4-4 to 2-5. Darren Murphy opened the scoring for Tinryland with a goal in the opening minutes and further first half goals from David Townsend and John Doyle saw Tinryland lead by 4 points at the break. In the second half O'Hanrahan's drew level by the 13th minute but a second goal from man of the match David Townsend saw Tinryland lift an U12 trophy for the second successive year. Best for Tinryland were David Townsend, Darren Murphy, Michael Mullen, Dean Farrell, Michael Lawlor, Brian Deane, Eric Bates, and goalkeeper Lee Buggle who appeared to be harshly red carded near the end.
The full panel was as follows: Lee Buggle, Kevin Barrett, Patrick Browne, Martin Deane, Gary Finnerty, Brian Deane, Eric Bates, Michael Mullen, Darren Murphy, David Townsend, Dean Farrell, Michael Lawlor, Chris Whelan, Killian Townsend, John Doyle, Patrick Brannigan, Michael Foley, Tom Nolan, Colm Curran, Jason Noctor, Robert Stynes, John Townsend, James Murphy, Paul Costello, Declan Ryan, Niall Farrell, Adam Doyle, Jack Lowry.
