Club Notes 16th August 2009

November 8, 2018


  Our Senior team went out of the Championship in very disappointing circumstances last Sunday in Orchard Park. The score line Elphin 0-05 Castlerea 1-05 tells its own story of a game where scores were extremely hard to come by.
  Once again Elphin started a game slowly, with attacks breaking down. Castlerea adapted to the wet conditions and after 15 minutes were 1-03 to 0-00 ahead. Elphin clawed their way back to leave the half time score 1-04 to 0-3.
  With the wind in their favour for the 2nd half Elphin would have been optimistic of overtaking their opponents, but a combination of 7 wides and a reluctance to play a quick ball into the full forward line laid the foundation for a 3 point defeat… Elphin outscoring Castlerea 0-02 to 0-01 in the 2nd half.
  A relegation battle now looms against either Kilmore, Strokestown, or Roscommon Gaels.
Team: R. Collins, R. Brady, Daire Neary, B. Neary, J. Carney, P. O`Connor, K. Brady, B. Higgins, S. Tiernan, B. Cregg, J. Collins, F. Cregg, E. Tiernan, C. Rock, N. Travers.
Subs: Frankie Cregg, S. Beirne.


  A meeting for Under 21 team and management will take place @ 8.30 pm in Orchard Park next Friday 21st August.
