Monaghan GAA Coaching & Games delivered a successful Secondary Schools 1st Year Boys Blitz and Skills Competition in Cloghan on Tuesday. The blitz was well supported with teams from Largy College, Beech Hill College, St. Macartan’s College, Colaiste Oireall, Our Lady’s College Castleblayney, Patrician High School Carrickmacross & Inver College Carrickmacross.
We had 23 teams in total, with each team getting to play a minimum of 3 matches. There was a lot of quality football on show, with some excellent pieces of skill throughout the day.
Following on from the completion of the blitz, we had a skills competition where each school selected 8 players to complete a number of skills tests based on kick passing and kicking for scores. This was delivered in quite windy conditions in Cloghan, but the players adapted well to the task and there was a great effort put in by all the schools.
We would like to thank the teachers for their support in attending the blitz. Also to the TY students from the various schools who helped officiate on the day. We wish the schools the best of luck as they look to compete in their different competitions over the months ahead.
