‘SunBuccs’ an innovative undertaking


Buccaneers U-14’s had a comprehensive win against Oughterard on Sunday with a much improved display on a sunny midlands afternoon. Some slick handling by both backs and forwards allied to improved defence was the template for a big win with Sam Byrne, Jacob Bourke and Andrew Cotton in the backs and Ciaran West, Evin Claffey and newcomer Nathan Kelly in the forwards, starring for this young team. Good to see all 27 players contributing to the win.
