Rearcross FC Players - Christmas Tournament 2012

An enjoyable 5 a-side Christmas Tournament saw Players young and old take part in well contested qualifying rounds before Darren Quigley's side clashed with Tommy Ryan Luke's team in the Final where Darren Quigley & Co. claimed a memorable 3-1 victory. The eventual winners had gone behind after Declan O'Toole put the Garavane led side ahead, however Darren Quigley playing a captain's part equalized before the half time whistle. Darren Quigley’s outfit went on to dominate proceedings in the second half with Liam Ryan securing the victory with two superb efforts to cap off a fine performance. Goalkeeper Theo English was in scintillating form for the winners throughout the Tournament and more than played his part in landing the Title for the Barnadomeeny native and was a deserving recipient of the Player of the Tournament accolade; please click here for Tournament results.
Meanwhile, an Exhibition Ladies Game played before the Gents Final saw a Geraldine O'Toole Rovers selection claim the plaudits against Liz O'Toole's All Stars on a two nil score line,  Maggie Sheehy and player of the match Helen Kennedy scored for the winning side.
