 Murroe AFC Notes. Our A team made history last weekend by qualifying for the “out of town” stage of the Munster Junior Cup. Reaching the last 32 is a great achievement and hopefully more to come. This was achieved after a 6-1 victory over Regional B with Liam Quinn netting an incredible 5 and Aidan Ryan adding the extras. Well done lads. The Cs were not as fortunate losing out 3-0 to Mungret in the League. Well done to our U12 Super blues GIRLS who won their match against Herbertstown. It was an early start for the girls, but they showed skill and determination which paid off in the end. Few girls missing today but well done to some girls who played other positions to help out. A fantastic bunch of girls – well done. A big thank you to Supermac’s and Siobhan Flynn for sponsoring the U14 girls soccer jerseys, shorts and socks. It is greatly appreciated. The girls look fabulous in them. Thanks again from Paul, Danny and Sarah. Two Murroe AFC players, Killian Quaid and Euan Sheridan were in action for Limerick County u14’s in an action packed Inter League mini blitz last weekend between County, South Tipp, Limerick Desmond League and Clare, in UL Well done lads.
