On Saturday saw us make the journey to the north coast of Dublin to play Skerries’s in rd 14 of the Ail, in horrific conditions the game was played on their new synthetic pitch. Skerries’s got of to a good start and went 3-0 up after 10 and increased it to 10 when we were done to 14, pity the final pass which was blatantly forward was missed by the officials. Bruff dug in against the elements but conceded another before halftime, we got ourselves territory near the end of half but were unlucky not to score before half time. The second half saw no improvement in conditions and although we fought to the end Skerries’s ran in 2 try’s to our 1 with Johnny Cleary scoring and Kevin converting. I’m sure the lads will be very frustrated with a lot of aspects of the game, but will have to get back on track for our away trip to Bangor on Saturday week. Skerries’s were playing their first league match on their new pitch but judging by the state of our lads knees and elbows with open cuts and bruises, they won’t be sorry to see the back of plastic pitches.
