TOBA WINTER SPORTS DAY

Bryan Breheny ('04) scores a tryThe weather didn’t deter the TOBA/TC community last Sunday, with a great turn out to support teams. The TC spirit was abundant, on and off the field!
TOBA won overall, defeating TC in cross country, rugby and soccer and TC winning football and hockey.
We were fortunate to have former WCE player Jacob Brennan (’07) playing on the TOBA football team. Jacob is the son of the football trophies namesake, Michael Brennan (’82) and it was only fitting that Jacob presented the trophy to the winning team (TC First XVIII). Andrew Embley (’98) also a former WCE player received 5 stitched for his efforts on the field!
The medal for TC Spirit was presented to Chris Jones (’97) by the inaugural winner, Bryan Breheny (’04). Chris is a massive supporter of all things TOBA and TC and consistently involved behind the scenes and on the field! Chris recently celebrated 200 games with Trinity Aquinas Football Club.
Huge thanks go to:
TC Director of Sport, Stephen Leahy (’78) and captains, coaches, managers, umpires and referees of both TOBA and TC teams
St John Ambulance
Brendan Molony (’65) and Giueseppe Leone (’91), for their expertise on the barbecue
