BUCCS AWAY TO NAAS IN FINAL LEAGUE FIXTURE

published:Apr  10

BUCCANEERS travel to Forenaughts on Saturday to complete their All-Ireland League fixtures against Naas, kick off 2.30 p.m. Naas are flying at the moment on the back of three big wins and could possibly clinch the Division 1B title by winning against the Pirates. They have moved nicely up to third place in the league table, just one point behind Old Wesley whom they defeated in their last home fixture. Sizeable away victories over Ballymena and Banbridge leaves the Co. Kildare club just four points adrift of leaders Ballynahinch so the Cobras have huge incentive should either of the clubs above them slip up. Meanwhile Buccaneers have little only pride to play for so the midlanders can expect an arduous 80 minutes on Saturday.

Buccaneers square up to Banbridge in an All-Ireland League duel at Dubarry Park on Saturday when the outcome of this ‘must win’ contest is absolutely vital for both clubs.

GREYSTONES 19 BUCCANEERS 26

published:Apr  01

Buccaneers U-20’s accounted for Greystones in a tense and difficult J P Fanagan Leinster U-20 Premier League 2 encounter at Dr. Hickey Park. The score line was the same as the previous game away to Dublin University, but this was a very different match to that impressive win versus the students. Pitch conditions were very poor and this allied to a strong wind ensured Buccaneers found it hard to impose their superior football skills on the contest. However, in a much-changed side due to injuries and unavailability of key players who featured for the AIL side the previous day, Buccaneers again showed their strength of character and depth of squad to grind out a 26-19 win and a try bonus point. Victory moves the Athlone side up another notch to third in the league table.

published:Mar  27

OLD WESLEY retained pole position in Division 1B of the All-Ireland League when they defeated Buccaneers 29-13 at Energia Park on Saturday. Benefiting from a settled squad on the artificial surface at Donnybrook and helped by a very early try, the Dubliners proved too slick and powerful for a considerably depleted Pirates crew who remain second from bottom.
