Patrician Secondary School Newbridge

There was a great win for Patrician Secondary School Newbridge JCT/Under 16s against Presentation De La Salle Bagnealstown in the Pat Rossiter Leinster Junior Development Cup. The match was played in Carlow RFC on Wednesday 15th November. The PSS team is filled with players from Newbridge and Cill Dara RFC's. PSS Newbridge won by 37 pts to -17. Their performance was built on a huge team effort, 'simple things done well', combined with incisive attacking play. Credit goes to Bagnealstown for an aggressive and committed challenge which asked loads of questions of the PSS players. All of the PSS team faced the challenge with purpose and collective determination. The PSS Newbridge squad is pictured below with Pres DLS (Red) after the game. Well done to all involved, Players, Coaches and Staff.

Another Win for New Dara U 14 Girls

Well done to the joint Newbridge & Cill Dara RFC's Under 14 Girls team (pictured below) who had another impressive win last Saturday 11th November. The girls travelled to Tullow and enjoyed a very good 51pts to 5 victory against a resolute team. Congratulations to all players, mentors and club officials involved from both Newbridge and Cill Dara and thank you to Tulllow our hosts.
