Team manager Sean Clerkin had great hope for this squad, and after an impressive win over a strong Kilcar team in the last round he had a vision of great things to come. However this was not to be our day and in an age group that can be difficult to predict Buncrana bowed out of the championship. This team was a great combination of the last number of years of hard work at underage and also some of our minors coming through.
