On Saturday, June 22 Lions AFC U-13 team from Durrow took on the mite of Evergeen FC in Kilkenny in the Final of the Kilkenny and District League U13 Eric Wilcox Cup.

In what could only be described as a thrilling match, Lions won on a score line of 3-2 but this does not reflect the dominance they had in the game, conceding two late goals which was otherwise a perfect performance.

The following Tuesday 25th June the team took on East End Utd from Bennetsbridge in their final league game of the season.

Lions AFC won 7-1 and were crowned winners of the U-13 Kilkenny People league Division One and in doing so created club history by winning the double.

The team on both days was Eoghan Doheny, Ciarán Shortall, David O’Carroll (Capt), Daire Quinn, Fionn Whelan, Cathal Jordan, Gary O’Sullivan, Gareth Singh, Rory Deegan, Aaron Brophy, Adam Kenna; Subs: Tim Ryan, Conor Tallis, Rory Kenny, Paddy Brennan. Padraic Dunne (missing from pic).
