Youths get season under way

Ballinasloe was the venue for Buccaneers U-13’s on Saturday when they played their first game ever on a full pitch. On a perfect day Buccs relished the opportunity to keep the ball in hand and ended up not kicking at all. The
try count was 10 to 3 in their favour but, most importantly, they moved the
ball very well at times. This was a huge learning curve for a squad which
has unlimited potential.

BUCCANEERS:- D Cleary, D Dullea, J Ryan, R Colleran, E Claffey, A Connor, N Stewart, D Stankard, F Byrne, P Finnan, O Egan, S Nugent, J Finnan, E Duffy, E Killeen, C West, P Bourke AND O O’Donoghue.

Buccaneers U-16’s were the first team out of the traps for the new season with a local derby in Ballinasloe against the hosts. Buccs played some great rugby and all 25 players performed well in a comprehensive win. A good start to the season for a squad that have already trained 12 times.
BUCCANEERS:- A Ward, S Doyle, P Brazil, S Rohan, C D Murtagh, P Egan, A Saka, O Byrne, M Kenny, M Connor, M Fallon, S Joyce, R Kelly, D Connolly, E Joyce, S McCarthy, R Gahan, E Killeen, B Mulvihill, TMcCay, L Gossy, O Tiernan, L Cassidy, T Daly and F Lyons.
