Rockwell/Rosegreen’s Under 16’s played the last of their round robin games on Monday the 14th of August. In this final round robin game their opposition were Emly/Treacys. Rockwell/Rosegreen needed a win to ensure they qualified for the semi-final. This game was played in New Inn, refereed by Mark Jordan. Rockwell/Rosegreen proved too strong for Emly/Treacys winning eventually on a score line of 3-17 to 1-10. This ensured that Rockwell/Rosegreen had qualified for the semi-final where they will play Arravale Rovers. This game is scheduled to take place on Saturday the 2nd of September in Golden at 2pm. The winners of this semi-final will play either Clonoulty/Rossmore or Lattin/Aherlow. Best of luck to all of the players and the management team in the semi-final.
Rosegreen’s second under 12 team have been busy in the past two weeks. On the 14th of August they played Lattin/Aherlow’s second team in the quarter final of the West Tipperary Under 12F competition. This game was played in Rosegreen and thankfully the players put in a strong performance, eventually winning on a score line of 3-6 to 1-0. The team had now qualified for the semi-final where they were set to meet Clonoulty/Rossmore who had beaten them previously. The semi-final was played in Clonoulty on the 17th of August. This was a tight game which went right down to the wire. Rosegreen managed to hold out to win by two points on a score line of Rosegreen 2-2 Clonoulty/Rossmore 1-3.
The West Tipperary Under 12F final was played in Dundrum on Sunday evening the 20th of August. On a damp evening Rosegreen lined up against their neighbours Rockwell Rovers.

Rosegreen got off to the better start with goals from Niall Tobin and Jamie Lawrence. At the interval Rosegreen held a slender lead by 2-1 to 1-0. The second half was a lively one with all of the children giving their all, eventually at full time Rosegreen had held out on a score line of 3-1 to 2-1. Well done to all the players and the management team for their efforts during the year.
