Seniors: The Seniors played Tyholland at home on Friday evening last and came away with a crucial and well deserved win on a score line of 1-12 to 0-09. This was a game which they were mainly in control from the start and credit must be given to the boys from putting in a battling performance. In the first half the home side ran into a 3 point lead after 15 minutes and although Tyholland reduced the lead on a number occasions the home side led at the break by 0-6 to 0-4. Into the second half the lead was further enhanced with a well worked goal to increase the lead to 5 and although Tyholland tried hard to reduce it the Aughnamullen rearguard stood firm and ran out winners by 6 points. Next game is this Saturday evening away to Table Toppers Donaghamoyne at 8pm. Best wishes is extended to the team and management.


Reserves: The Reserves play away to Monaghan Harps this Sunday at 2pm best wishes is extended to the team and management as they hope to continue to push on for a semi final spot.

Under 13: The Under 13 team played away to Corduff on Tuesday last in Round 1 of the Cup Competition. Unfortunately on the night they came away being defeated by 5 points on a score line of 5-11 to 4-09. They have 2 games left in this format the first being this Saturday the 15th of June with a home game against Inniskeen at 12 noon where they must win to have any chance of reaching the final of the league please come out and support the team and management


Under 11: The Under 11 squad played Clontibret in the final of the spring league in Cloghan on Saturday last. With big numbers involving both teams there were 2 games being played together. The games were played with some brilliant point scoring by the boys in blue and also the art of defending was a joy to be hold with. After the series of games Aughnamullen emerged victorious and credit must be given to the boys and their management team of Paddy Murtagh, Martin Mc Ginn, Paul Mulligan, Martin Woods and Patrick Duffy definitely the future is bright. Their next game is in the Liam Stirrat Development league which starts on Saturday 22nd June with an away fixture against Castleblayney.
