Mattock Rangers were delighted to host the 2nd year of the Brendan Reilly Cup on Friday last and what a game we were served up by the U-12's from Mattock Rangers and Sean O Mahony's. The football on display was of the highest standard with a flawless skill set on show by both sides. The game ebbed and flowed with both sides giving it there all right to the very end. Mattock Rangers came out on top at the end but great credit has to go to both teams and management for serving up a tremendous game of football.
