Match Report U13 Gaynor Cup Squad
- Dec 17,2021
The Mayo U13 Gaynor Cup Squad make the long trip south this Sunday December 19th to the grounds of University Limerick to face Louth in the 2021 Gaynor Plate Final. Kick-off is at 2pm.
This group of Mayo girls have been together since early August and have grown together as a very cohesive bunch. In the proverbial “group of death” they emerged unbeaten and tied with 2 other teams on both points and goal difference but ended 3rd in the group by virtue of goals scored.
In the knock-out stages since they have beaten Longford 3-2 and in the Plate Semi-Final beat Galway 3-1. This side is one of the teams under overall control of Mayo Emerging Girls Talent Head Coach John Flanagan. The vastly experienced Kevin Sheeran manages this group with Coaches Michael Collins, Emma Gibbons, Emma Sheeran and Jessica Lambe.
Louth were in Group E with MGL North, Midlands and NECSL and also had their own issues with goal-difference. In their case they were denied 2nd spot by one goal and they accounted for Carlow 3-2 in their semi-final.
The excellent work being done in Mayo by the Clubs is reflected in the fact that 13 Clubs have players in this Squad. The Clubs are Ballinrobe Town, Castlebar Celtic, Castlebar Town, Charlestown Athletic, Claremorris, Conn Rangers, Erris, Kiltimagh Knock United, Killala, Kilmurry, Partry Athletic, Swinford and Westport.
