CYFC u11s MUYL defeated Dungannon Youth
First Saturday in September and it’s pouring down … it can only mean one thing … first league match for the U11colts! The squad made the short journey to Castlecaulfield to play their opponents – Dungannon Youth in the Mid Ulster Youth League. Despite the wet conditions Cookstown youth had a blistering first half scoring 5 goals with no reply. However in the 2nd half the Dungannon Youth squad played some lovely attacking football and they created more chances. Cookstown youth certainly found it a lot harder to break down a resolute Dungannon team and there were some excellent saves from the Dungannon keeper in the 2nd half.
CYFC added to their tally by scoring another goal in the second half but this was countered by a well taken volley from a Dungannon youth corner. The final result finished in a 6-1 win to CYFC yet the real winner today was seeing the smiles on the boys faces with many playing their first ever competitive matches.
Well done boys – let’s keep working hard!
