This was the supporting cast however as the main players took to the field from 10am to provide a feast of fine football and goals good enough to grace any tournament. After 24 group games Ashbourne United, Celbridge Town, Corduff x2, Colin Valley, Kilnamangh AFC and Ballyowen Celtic (Red) made up the Cup Quarter Finals.
While St.Mochtas , Peamount, Balbriggan, Muirhavna Mor, Leicester Celtic, Ballyowen Celtic (Black) & Ballyoulster United contested the Shield Quarter Finals.
After some superb knockout football and nerve jangling finishes including no less than 4 penalty shootouts we got down to our final four.
The Shield final was an exhilarating game played out at a blistering pace with both teams going full out to get their hands on the silverware. But it was the boys from Dundalk, Muirhevna Mor who managed to find the net and win the shield with two well taken goals.
Congratulations to Muirhevna Mor U11 Development Shield Winners 2017
Ashbourne United claimed the prestigious Developement Cup but only after Colin Valley brought them all the way to yet another penalty shoot-out.
