FOOTBALL SUCCESS FOR BRUREE N.S
Our new school year began and with it the excitement only the South Schools Competition could bring. This year was the first year we had direct access to the GAA field and every Thursday all the lads would rush onto the field looking forward to another training session.
In the lead up to our first game against Bruff everyone was putting 100% effort into every training session.
In our first game we played our mighty rivals Bruff. We were captained by Ian Finn and coached by Mr. Woulfe and Ger Sexton. It was a tough match for us and we lost by a couple of points. We still had a chance to get to the final if we won against Kilmallock. A few weeks later Kilmallock paid Bruree a visit and they didn’t enjoy it. We won well and we were into the final where we would once again face Bruff.
The final which was played the week later was another tough match and there were a few clashes.
We held on in the last few minutes to win by a slim margin. We had won! The noise on the bus on the way home was sensational! The girls had also won their final so everyone was happy. We went on to the County Semi-Final but sadly lost. Though there was no shame in going out to Lisnagry last year’s winners. All in all I think it was a good year for Bruree School footballers!
