Attical and Longstone are U14 champions

Tuesday, 15 July 2014

ATTICAL won the South Down U14 B and League double after beating rivals Rostrevor last week.
This was a magnificent achievement for the small Mourne club who remained undefeated throughout the league.
Meanwhile their Mourne rivals Longstone also won their division when they defeated Baileglas U14 in the C section in Ballymartin on Monday night.
The fact that these small rural clubs can compete at the top level in their respective sections against the larger clubs is testament to the attitude and ability of the players and the quality of the coaching these young players receive in their clubs.
This is a tough time for small clubs with the spectre of emigration once again stalking their communities and it good to see success coming to them. These results may well be pointers as to where further silverware may go come Championship time.
