Ballynahinch
Letterkenny RFC
Sat 6 May 12:20 - Friendly Full time

Ballynahinch prove "to much" for Letterkenny U14s, in Plate final.

A bridge to far - A fantastic season ends, without a win.

After a long and successful season the Letterkenny Under 14s, travelled to the Mid Ulster Sports Arena in Cookstown to face Ballynahinch RFC U14s in the final of the Plate Competition.

It was a glorious sunny day and Letterkenny were in good spirits and well prepared. We travelled with a full strength squad. We were confident with having beat Ballynahinch earlier in the season by one score, the only one of the game. The final however proved to be a very different game.

It was Letterkennys first taste of an officious final and the occasion may have got to them a bit. They were hit by some very impressive forward play by Ballynahinch who capitalised by releasing their backline to score twice and convert both. With some determined play Letterkenny eventually released their backline and Kaymin Shortt scored an impressive try and converted the same. That proved to be the last scoring action from a tough game against an impressive Ballynahinch side who scored twice more before the end.

Full Time : Letterkenny 7 - Ballynahinch 33

We cannot forget just how consistent and impressive Letterkenny U14s have been this season and despite ending on a downer, we the coaches could not be prouder of what has been achieved. The future looks bright at U14s and U16s next season.
