Na Fianna club notes
U20 FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND 1
Na Fianna U20 Footballers got the club’s 2019 playing campaign underway as they opened their Championship campaign against neighbours St Broughans in Geashill last Sunday morning but unfortunately it began and ended the one day as St Broughans ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 5-14 to 1-08 in what is a straight knockout competition. St Broughans who were the 2017 Minor (U18) winners and so would be the favourites for the U20 grade this year. St Broughans won the toss and they opted to play with the strong breeze in the first half as they built up a commanding lead at the break of 4-11 to 0-04 despite being reduced to 14 midway through the half as midfielder Peter Byrne picking up a straight red with the Na Fianna scores a brace apiece from Craig Strong and Kaelyn Thompson. Na Fianna steadied the ship in the second half coming out on top by 1-04 to 1-03 with the Na Fianna goal coming directly from a line ball by Kaelyn Thompson.
NA FIANNA: Ryan Kinahan, Ross Colton, Conor McGuinness, Shane Finneran, Emmett Curley, Glen Hassett, Adam Strong, Sean Cleary, Jack Shiels, Jamie Ballesty, Reece Seery, James Bryan (0-01),Kaelyn Thompson (1-04), Craig Strong (0-02), Lee Mulpeter (0-01).
