Foxrock/Cabinteely capture Junior Club Championship

Foxrock/Cabinteely win Junior Club Championship


VHI Healthcare All-Ireland ladies JFC final Foxrock/Cabinteely
(Dublin) 1-11 West Clare Gaels (Clare) 0-7 By Eamonn O’Molloy

STAR-STUDDED Foxrock/Cabinteely claimed the VHI Healthcare All-Ireland
ladies junior club championship at Toomevara yesterday in only
their seventh year in existence. A goal with just over ten minutes
remaining from Sinéad Murphy sealed the win for the Dublin side,
who dominated most of the game and led 0-8 to 0-3 at half-time.
West Clare started well, and scores were level at 0-3 each after
the first quarter. But wing-back and player-of-the-match Ciara
Murphy took control to shoot the first two of her four points
from play and put her side in a commanding position.

Former Louth player Anne-Marie Murphy and centre-half forward
Amy Ring also starred for the winners, while Majella Griffin and
the Kelly twins, Maria and Sarah led the West Clare effort. The
win completed a great few days for Foxrock skipper Marla Candon,
who also captained the Underdogs last week, and a great week for
the club, who recently won their first Dublin minor crown.


Foxrock/Cabinteely: A Ring 0-5 (3f), C Murphy 0-4, S Murphy 1-0,
AM Murphy and L Stafford 0-1 each.

West Clare Gaels: M Kelly 0-3, M Griffin 0-2 (1f), D Geaney and
N Lardner 0-1 each.
