Congratulations to Cavan FCs U14/15 indoor travelling team who made it to the semi-finals of The Hangar Annual Family Day Classic!
The team, which is coached by Josh Penello, Alex Penello and Liz Shaughnessy-Rowe finished their round-robin play undefeated. Beating OKD 2-1, H.E.A.D.S boys 2-1 and Richmond Hill white 2-0. With those victories, our boys finished first in their division going on the face the wild card team OKD. The boys continued their strong play which they demonstrated throughout the tournament but would eventually fall 1-0 in what was an extremely tight contest.
This is the first year Cavan FC has put together an indoor travelling team it was made up of our U15, U14 & U13 boys and they only started practicing as a team in November at the Hastings Field house. The coaches are extremely proud of how well they did for a team that has only spent 6 practices together. Head coach Josh Penello said “It was amazing to see the confidence grow in each game that we played and I’m super proud of how the boys battled on the field. Despite only a few practices all the players played the system very well and stuck to the game plan. Well done lads!!!!”
