Eire Óg are 2013 Tesco Homegrown U16A County Champions
Eire Óg 1-11 Fermoy 1-04
Eire Og are Tesco Homegrown U16A County Champions after impressive victory over Fermoy in the replayed Final in Mallow on Sat 16th Nov. The Final score was Eire Óg 1-11 Fermoy 1-04.
The foundation for the victory was laid in the first half when tireless defending combined with some excellent finishing to see Eire Óg notch up a 1-07 to 0-01 at the half time whistle. Fermoy on the day got little reward from a number of early chances and were left with a major task to recover from the first half display by their opponents.
The second half saw Fermoy battle bravely to get back into the contest but Eire Óg defended in numbers and moved the ball forward with purpose as they continued to keep control of the contest.
Congratulations to Eire Óg who were deserving winners on the day but great credit to Fermoy who came so close to victory in the drawn game but could not reach the same heights on the day.
Great days ahead for both clubs who have a lot of young talent coming through.
