2007 Senior Youth Squad (U16s)

The Mariners U16s took part in their first competitive games this year at the Dublin Youth Tournament at Corkagh Park, Clondalkin, on May 12. Also taking part were the Kerry Green Sox, Portstewart Eagles, and a brand new team, the Cavan Comets.

The Mariners won the tournament with victories against all three teams!

Highlights included strong performances by first time pitchers Colm Coughlan and Paddy Fleming. With veteran catchers Sam Marcus and Leah Hanley both unavailable on the day, Caoimhin Laoide-Kemp went behind the plate and proved more than capable, getting stronger throughout the day. Darren Gillen and Sean Crowley both produced much of the Mariners’ offense, with Darren driving in eight runs throughout the day and Sean going 6 for 8 with a walk. Michael Woods-O’Rourke and Daniel “Smiley” McGann also contributed at the plate, while Lance Thompson on defense made a great put out at first.
