Congratulations to our U16C team who secured 2nd place in the league with victory over Ratoath Harps today. Only a win could secure the R/Up spot and the team overcame some very tough opposition to win 3-4 in Ratoath.
Steven Dunne opened the scoring for us on 11 mins, showing some great reactions and desire to latch onto a loose ball in the Ratoath box and fire home. The home side equalised on 23mins but Baldoyle's lead was restored when Jose Martinez Faba hit a piledriver which was beyond the keeper before he could react on 28mins. 7 minutes later the scores were level again as Ratoath scored a good headed goal from a corner and so the first half ended at 2-2.
Five minutes into the second half Baldoyle scored a goal of real quality. A move where we kept possession under pressure and moved it from left to right, back and forward, involving 8 of the 11 players touching the ball, and ended with Cian Grassick pulling the ball back from the endline to the unmarked Jose who showed great composure to sidefoot home from the edge of the area. With the team now controlling the game it would have to be something special to unlock the Baldoyle defence and unfortunately for us that is exactly what happened, when a Ratoath midfielder, picking up a clearance outside our box, struck a wonderfully curled shot past the outstretched hand of Sean Walsh in goal to level at 3-3. However this Baldoyle team have worked extremely hard all year and were not going to be denied. With 17mins to go the energetic Cian Grassick was fouled in the box and Jose Martinez Faba completed his Hat-Trick from the spot to win all three points and secure second place.

It is with great sadness that we learn that Laura O'Neill, niece of our Chairman Dermot, lost her battle with Sarcoma cancer last saturday night. Laura was just 22 years old.
Laura had been attending the Royal Marsden Hospital in London after she had reached the end of treatment offered in Ireland. A Gofundme account to help cover Laura's medical costs raised an astonishing €29k towards her medical costs. Many members and friends of Baldoyle Utd donated to this fund and Laura's family are profoundly grateful to all those who donated and gave Laura hope.
Sadly, after initially responding well to treatment, Laura's tumours returned very aggressively and Laura passed away on Sat Sept 30th with her Mam at her bedside a mere 9 months after diagnosis.
Laura's funeral mass will take place at 10am in the Church of Our Lady of Victories, Ballymun Road, followed by cremation in Dardistown Crematorium on Thursday Oct 5th
A big thanks to John Delaney and the FAI for the invitation to Alex McEleney and some of the U11s to attend the Ireland training session at Abbotstown this afternoon.

The U13D team was so unlucky not to claim all 3 points in Sunday's game at home to Skerries . A superb long range effort by James McEvoy found the top corner to put the lads 1-0 ahead only to concede a late late equalizer. Well done lads and on to next weekend. ... See MoreSee Less

MATCH REPORT: SFAI CUP U12 BALDOYLE UTD 2 KINGSCOURT HARPS 3
Our Under 12A team their played their very first 11 a side game on a full size pitch in the SFAI Cup against Kingscourt Harps on Sunday. The boys were unlucky to go down by a single goal. In a very entertaining game both sides played some lovely football with Kingscourt from Cavan taking the lead.
With the score at 3-2 Baldoyle had some great chances to get a deserved equalizer. During a goal mouth scramble that also involved a strong penalty claim the ball somehow trickled wide. Then Leo Maher's free kick from outside the box cracked off the underside of the bar to the frustration of the young lads.
Overall the team will be pleased with a fine performance and should have no fears when they move to 11 a side next year. Good luck to Kingscourt in the next round. ... See MoreSee Less
Great performance by the U14B team who ran out 2-1 winners in a tightly fought contest. With the scores level at 1-1 and full time approaching Baldoyle showed the extra fitness and desire to clinch a well deserved winner. Liam Burchell and Sean O'Keeffe with the goals for Baldoyle. ...

Our Under 11A were also at home at Seagrange today. The team is on a great run at the moment and it continued with a fine win over a Swords side who will wonder how they lost out after a strong first half performance.
Baldoyle were the better side in the second half. Goals from Stephen Finn (2) and Jack McDermot sealed victory. For the remainder of the half the team, coached by Steve, Roberto and Rob, knocked the ball around well playing some lovely football.
Ger Brady from The Herald Striker was there to report on the game so pick up a copy of the Evening Herald on Monday. ... See MoreSee Less
Well done to our U11H team who played some great football at Seagrange Road against a strong Willows side. The lads are improving every week under Pavel's coaching. Today they ran out narrow victors with both defences playing very well. ... See MoreSee Less
