Franner played their first soccer match of the season away to Oatlands in Deer Park on Tuesday. Franner under the guidance of Captain Kevin started very strongly and went ahead through a well worked goal from Garreth. The tricky wing play of Mikey was causing the home defence lots of problems. However the hosts responded courtesy of a penalty kick which Eoin almost managed to save.

Franner started the second half brightly and had several chances but were denied by a combination of misfortune and good goalkeeping. Oatlands snatched the winning goal on the counter attack when the striker showed great pace and calmly finished past the brilliant Dean.

A great performance from the whole squad and all the boys are looking forward to the next game. A special mention to Dylan from fourth class who was simply outstanding on his first appearance for the school team!
