The under 10 boys brought home their first trophy last week beating Kilcoole in the league final in Ballinakill. Some brilliant football played by both teams in a very entertaining match. The under 15s had one win and one defeat over the last week. They beat Eire Og on Wednesday 5-11 to 4-05 while on Saturday they lost out to St Nickolas 5-14 to 4-08. It leaves them with two win from 3 heading into their final group match against Baltinglass in a couple of weeks. The under 11 red team  had a great win away to Kilmac on Wednesday while the red team narrowly lost away to Dunlavin. The under 14 girls had a brilliant win against St. Nickolas on Saturday in the championship semi final 9-04 to 5-14. This match was unbelievable and had everything and great credit goes to both players and coaches for some excellent play. Hard luck to the under 16s who lost their championship semi final also to St. Nickolas by a couple of points. The junior B team play knockanna on Thursday in the championship quarter final in Avondale at 7.45 while the intermediate team play Ballinacor on Sunday at 3.30 in a relegation playoff and the seniors playing after them against Avondale in the championship quarter final at 5.15 with both games in Aughrim. Let's try get out and support all the teams over the weekend. 


Thanks to Charlie Curren in Delpac for supplying the club with new crested coffee cups for the shop. Best wishes to junior B player Glen Doyle who had surgery on his knee injury last week.
