Deele College Through to All Ireland Final

It’s full steam ahead for Deele College, as their U-15 team prepare for the school’s first ever All-Ireland Final, which will take place on April 5th against St Brendan’s College, Killarney. The venue has yet to be decided.

The side, managed by Andy McFadden have progressed to the final in blistering form, with a 5-3 win against Connaught side, St. Gerard’s in the semi-final. That win came just 24 hours after their nerve wracking 5-4 win in the Ulster Final against PCC Falcarragh, where they came from 4-1 down to claim the silverware.

Congratulations to the under 15 soccer team from Deele College on winning the Ulster title. In what was a dramatic and epic battle that saw the team conceding three goals in the first seven minutes of the game, the team began to fight back and at half time the score was three – one. The manager Mr Mc Fadden imparted some very motivating words of wisdom that fired up the team and spurred them on to a very impressive victory. The team had to claw back from a 4-1 deficit, the final score was 5-4. The goal scorers were Oisin Bonner, Robbie Donnel, Cory Mc Bride-Gillen x2 & CJ Clarke.

The team will face St. Gerard’s College, Castlebar on Tuesday 21st March in Sligo in what promises to be an exciting semi final.

Deele College through to Final

Well done to Deele College’s Under 15 Boys today as they won in a dramatic penalty shootout over Rosses Community School and advance to a final showdown with PCC Falcarrragh on Monday after the game ended 1-1 after extra time in Drumkeen, Rosses went one up in the first half but Deele grabbed a leveller late in the second when McBride Gillen converted after some good approach play by Ronan McKinley. Deele kept their nerve in the penalty lottery to set them up for that clash with PCC who also needed penalties in their semi final win over Scoil Mhuire Buncrana on Tuesday. Mr Mc Fadden the team manager stated he was extremely proud of the work rate of the squad and has every confidence in the team.
