The Mill Youth Club take the crown!

The Mill Youth Club take the crown!

The very first Futsal league in Kilkenny saw the final match being played on 22nd march 2015. With four teams from Castlecomer, Kilkenny City, Borris-in-Ossory and The Mill participating in the league that began in November 2014.

With the focus on fun, participation and competition, there were 4 rounds, each being hosted by one of the teams involved. Not only did the young people involved enjoy closely fought matches and re-matches, they also focused on the awareness campaign behind the Futsal League, “Show Racism the Red Card”.

A fantastic event for a fantastic cause. Shane Burke a volunteer with Ossory Youth ensured the event ran smoothly.

Here is what Shane had to say after the last round played in March 2015:

“So there we have it league champions are crowned! The Mill finished out a great first year of competition in the county’s inaugural Futsal league, with a 7-4 victory in a winner takes all clash with Kilkenny City.

The standard of football and sportsmanship was something to behold from both teams drawing great praise from both the FAI and spectators present.

A massive thank you to everyone involved from players to the coaches in the organising and running as this league was run on a purely voluntary basis and each and everyone of you is a credit to your club. Also a special mention to the FAI development worker Darren Murray for his help and assistance.

Going forward the league is looking to expand and also move to a nighttime format. Also not forgetting what this league is all about Show racism the red card.

But for now congratulation go to the Mill and everyone involved.”
