Dublin Blitz U11 in Naomh Barrog GAA Club
Throw in 12:30pm on Sunday 23rd October 2016
Last Sunday we had over 33 girls from the U11’s travel out to Naomh Barrog GAA club for the Dublin blitz. This blitz was divided into four groups. Foxcab put out three teams of 11 players each. Between each team they came up against the home team Naomh Barrog and Fingal Ravens.
The under-11s produced an outstanding performance, with all three teams excelling themselves in terms of tight-handing passing, fierce tackling and a very high rate of finishing, resulting in some very good scores. Our Foxcab girls came away with 6/6 wins which is incredible for this young group of girls.
All the girls displayed impressive teamwork with some tremendous blocks and vision from defence while the mid field and forwards concentrated on working together, retaining possession while building up their scores. The FoxCab girls, right across the three teams, never allowed their opponents to settle and put unrelenting pressure on them whenever they had the ball. Their constant hard work at training on a Tuesday night was evident throughout the matches on Sunday.
This team has taken tremendous strides forward in terms of fitness levels, team play and skill levels. The behaviour of this team and their attitude towards training and matches is exemplary. From their attention to team talks to their pre-match warm-up, this team are almost like a professional outfit.
The girls continue to train hard every Tuesday evening and are always on the lookout and welcoming new players.
The girls look forward to Fridays match, where they will come up against Kilmacud Crokes in “The Game of light blitz”… match report to follow.
A special thanks to Naomh Barrog for hosting the match and to the parents for their continued support. It is very much appreciated.

Foxcab Vs Na Fianna (2 Teams)
FoxCab U11s have played numerous games so far in the season including: Ballyboden St.Endas, Templeogue Synge Street, Naomh Olafs, Kilmacud Crokes, Shankill, Castle Knock, St. Oliver Plunketts, Blessington, Clontarf and Interclub Blitz before Easter.
On Sunday Foxcab played against 2 Na Fianna teams away in Collinstown Lane pitch on Sunday 1st May. Each team had two teams consisting of 11 players each. The girls played one 25 minute game against one Na Fianna team and then another 25 minute game against the other team.
The girls, have been focusing in training on the ability to work as a unit, where no one player was more important than another and where we relied on fast, accurate hand passing to move the ball around into space and above all maintain possession. They also have worked extremely hard on kick-passing and encouraging one another both on and of the pitch, which is wonderful to see. The girls showed this right from the beginning to end during the matches against Na Fianna.
The under-11s produced an outstanding performance, with both teams excelling themselves in terms of passing, tackling, blocking, shooting and with well-worked team play, resulting in some very good scores.
The smiling faces at the end of the match said it all. The hard work had paid off with two very successful matches. It was wonderful to hear the girls laughing and chatting about how well they played with one another, after the game.
Thanks to all girls who travelled out to the match and took part, and thanks again to all the parents for their support. We are very appreciative of the work you do.
Now it's back to the training ground on Tuesday evening at 6:30 in Killbogget to increase the intensity of our training through pad-work, core fitness and physical tackling drills. The U11 girls also look forward to a team bonding activity this weekend….. More to come from these young talented girls!

The smiling faces at the end of Saturday’s blitz said it all. The hard work had paid off with a very successful and enjoyable day.
Now it's back to the training ground on Tuesday evening at 6:30 under lights in Kilbogget to increase the intensity of our training through pad-work, core fitness and physical tackling drills.
Thanks to all girls who took part and thanks again to all the parents for their support and we are also very appreciative of the work you do.
The under 10 management have been instrumental in giving all players the opportunity to play team sports – (with every girl getting to play full games) - and in the development of the girls skills in Gaelic football.
The under 10’s travelled with 3 teams to play Ballyboden St Enda’s on Saturday April 11th and were first meet with a hailstones shower, but this did not dampen their spirits.
There were going to be no easy matches as Ballyboden St Enda’s are one of the biggest clubs on the south side, with over 70 girls in each age group. There were 9 games planed but only 6 were played due to the late start because of weather.
All of Fox Cab teams showed great discipline regarding holding their positions well and putting up very solid defence to the point in 3 out of 6 games Ballyboden did not even put a score on the board. As the games progressed the girls started to move the ball very quickly up to the forwards who knew exactly what to do with it using both the space created and fast supply of ball to devastating effect, made life very difficult for Ballyboden who found it increasingly difficult to get out of their own half with the ball as the games progressed.
What a great display of football entertainment given by our girls coming away with 6 wins out of 6.
