Peamount United would like to thank Karmen Aviation for Sponsoring our U10 team.
Our under 18s represented the club in a Leinster Football association trial game against the best of all the other leagues on Wednesday the 5th under floodlights in FAI Headquarters in Abbotstown. A great experience for the squad who were a credit to the club both on and off the field. A positive outcome with three players – Dylan, Tas & Cezar being requested to attend the final selection training sessions this weekend in the AUL complex. Not in picture Adam & Jordan who were unavailable through injury. Best of luck to the lads in the final selection process.
Peamount opened their campaign on Saturday the 13/8/16 when they stunned champions Wexford Youths by securing a 1-0 win courtesy of a first-half strike from debutant Heather Payne.
The new-look Peas team started brightly and took the lead on 20 minutes when Galway girl Payne tucked in a cross from Sarah McKevitt. That goal proved to be the difference in spite of efforts from Wexford’s Emma Hansberry, Maria Delahunty, and Linda Douglas.
Congratulations to our U14B1 Team who won their league, well done lads
