IAFA/GBAF Development Weekend
The IAFA hosted the Great British Amputee Football Association from Friday 1st March to Sunday 3rd of March at the University of Limerick's Sports Campus. Both squads made use of the exception facilities at UL as they trained and took part in two friendly games, the first on the Saturday afternoon and the second on the Sunday morning. Team GB won the first game 3-0 but the Irish squad rallied to draw the second 1-1. Captain Mike Masters opened the scoring for Great Britain but Kevan O'Rourke equalized for Ireland. Ireland were unlucky not to win as James Boyle forced GB's goalkeeper into a number of saves in the second half. The IAFA would like to thank Great Britain's Development squad for travelling to Ireland for the weekend and the University of Limerick for hosting both sides.
