Great effort by the Amber team against visiting team Ballyduff in Round 2 of the u14 County League. We battled hard from the very start, won some great balls and carried the ball forward putting pressure on the visitors. They were a stronger side but we can be proud that we worked hard as a team & succeeded in keeping the pressure on. Onwards & upwards to the next round!
