It was a disappointing end to a quite successful year over all for this years Junior team. Having secured promotion to Division 4 league they faced St. Josephs in the final on Saturday. Boyle had a big squad to pick from and started with a strong team. Ill discipline and the conceding of too many goals left the job all to hard to the well coached defensive side of St. Josephs. Unfortunately there was to be no silverware collected on this occasion. Thanks to Stephen, Kevin and Micheal for there work and dedication throughout the year.
Many thanks to the Club members who assisted with parking, catering, preparation of pitch, scoreboard, lotto sales and clean up on Saturday also.
