Newbridge v Clontarf Sat 8th Nov

On Saturday the 8th of November 2014, Newbridge’s 1st’s played Clontarf away. The match started at 12:30 in Clontarf’s grounds. With our warm up finished, our game heads screwed on and our pep talk from our coach Owen under our belt, we were ready to go out fighting.
