St Brendans Park FC were delighted to host College Corinthians a prominent

Cork City team for pre-season friendlies at both U12 and U14 age group in

Christy Leahy Park.

First up was the U14’s, this being their first match of a series of up and coming

pre-season challenges for the U14 lads they were sure to be a bit rusty after the

Summer break and you couldnt ask for a tougher test against this Corinthians

team who were runners up in last year’s National Cup Final.


U14 Team v College Corinthians


True to form the match was dominated by the Corinthians who proved to be

stronger in all departments but credit to the park lads spirit they battled hard

and created a couple of chances themselves.

It was a great lesson for our lads on how the great game canbe played in it’s

purest and simplest form, but there were positives to be taken away, as the

Park lads did try to play a pass and move style of football out of defence and

their 100% effort to the end.
