Nevelo Tournament Final: Cabinteely DDSL U-13 Major 2-1 Clontarf FC
On Sunday last, May 15, our DDSL U-13 Majors came out on top in a three-goal thriller against another Irish club, Clontarf FC, in the final of the SV Nevelo International Tournament (translate if necessary).

The lads had arrived in the Netherlands on Friday, May 13, to be met by the PSV Eindhoven team coach (above)  for transport to their accommodation.

On Saturday the group spent the day in The Efteling theme park, riding the various roller coasters and carnival rides, to the great concern of team management as they hoped all the lads would remain fully fit for the following day’s games!

Then, on Sunday, the group travelled to Oisterwijk, the home of host club, SV Nevelo, to play in the twelve-team international tournament

The boys went on to win the cup conceding only one goal in the process – and that was in the final! You can see all details of the matches on the Nevelo website.

Overall, a great time was had over the weekend away by players, parents and coach Mark Kavanagh.

Sounds like the lads made an impression on their continental raid!
