September Intercounty U6 Report

The U6 Blitz Coaches Whatsapp group was on fire the night before as the Sixmilebridge coaches were struggling to come up with tactics to counter the Newtown short passing game. Rumours had circulated Newtown would completely mess with everyone’s head by going to full hand passing! Cusack’s were rumoured to be contemplating playing a double sweeper system. The ‘Bridge in the end decided to keep faith in what the players have learned in training and just go out and hurl!

In all there were over 80 boys taking part in the U6 blitz, with over 30 from Sixmilebridge which meant 4 Sixmilebridge teams participating. Each of the boys participated in 3 matches each and the effort meter certainly went into overdrive on the day. There were some fantastic displays and whilst the games were very even it was great to see such fantastic effort put in by all of the boys.

A big thank you to the U6 catering/admin group of Sarah Chaplin, Sandra Benoit, Michelle Moran, Thelma Chaplin, Denise Feehan, Linda O’ Sullivan and other parents who helped with the teas/coffees and handing out of the healthy ‘goody’ bags consisting of fruit and water and also to our local O'Flynns Centra.

Thanks also to our referees who came from the U16 panel, they were Cian Fawl, Luke Keogh, Evan Murphy, Conor Murphy and Darragh Toomey. It was great to see these lads helping out with their younger co-players on the day.

Our team coaches worked hard all day, organising positions, switching goalies, giving encouragement and keeping the boys going so thanks to them aswell. Coaches on the day were Peter Kearney, Ludo Benoit, Mike Slattery, Trevor Maxwell, Declan Murphy, Paul Fitzpatrick, Gerry O’ Halloran, Johnny O’ Sullivan. Mike & Trevor were claiming the coaches of the tournament title with 3 victories but it was clarified afterwards by the referees that all games ended in draws, so they accepted that they were happy with the effort of their team being at the higher end!

One interesting visitor was Adrian Tuohy, 2017 All Ireland winner had a son on the Cusacks team.

Finally well done to all the U6 boys who are continuing to develop at a fantastic rate and will get more match experience in a couple of weeks with a visit to Kilmaley and Kilmaley will return 2 weeks after on Friday evening October 5th for the U6 Finale night.
