Under 14 Season 2015

Derry Under 14

The Derry Under 14 squad undoubtedly were the success story of 2015.

Things did not start so well in 2015 however as Derry lost out to Monaghan and Antrim in their opening two games.

Following this though the fortunes improved significantly for the Derry team. A big win over Armagh at Banagher in mid April set the girls up for a final league match against Down in Ballymaguigan. Following a great performance the girls won comfortably on a scoreline of 7.11 to 1.08 to proceed to an Ulster “C” Championship final where they faced Tyrone.

The continuous improvement of the squad showed again as Derry proved much too strong for the Tyrone side, eventually running out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 3.14 to 0.03.

Ulster Champions 2015

The next step on the journey was an All Ireland “C” Championship semi final against Leitrim on 13th June. The Derry side played much the better football here and proved too strong for the Connacht C champions, going on to win by 4.18 to 1.05, the match played in Augher.

This left the Under 14 squad facing their nemesis from 2014 when Limerick had beaten Derry in Boyle in an All Ireland semi final.

Saturday 4th July in Ballymahon. Again unfortunately the Munster side proved too strong for this Derry side as Derry went down on a scoreline of 4.12 to 3.09 in a game that no doubt the players and Management felt with a bit of luck they could have won.
