U10s V Athy 19/9/10
Kilkenny under 10s made their first outing of the season when Athy were the visitors to Foulkstown on Sunday morning. 22 young Kilkenny players were involved in 4 mixed ability teams against the visitors and despite the fact that Kilkenny had 7 players who were only out for their first ever visit to Foulkstown with no training whatever, the games were evenly contested and a high level of skill displayed by Kilkenny and Athy players alike.
Kilkenny scored some fine tries in each of the games and their tackling in general was superb even though they were definitely smaller generally than the Athy lads. All in all a very good debut for the new players and coaches Marie Louise Brody and Mick McGrath are keen to welcome any newcomers to this age group.
Ring 086 8242735 for information.
Next week the monthly area fixture will be played at home to New Ross.
