Under 10s
In the North Westmeath League, Team Amber overcame the challenge of St Pauls on Tuesday evening last in The Downs. Full credit to both teams for providing a very entertaining 40 minutes of football. On Saturday morning last Molloy Park was awash once again with under 8 and under 10 footballers for a Mullingar Area League fixture versus Shandonagh. 6 matches were played in all involving close to 100 young footballers which was a tremendous sight in front of the new stand.

Senior League Div 1              The Downs 0:7           Mullingar Shamrocks 1:9
On Sunday we travelled into Mullingar to take on the home side in a league game playing against a gale force wind in the first half we got it extremely difficult to convert possession into, scores we trailed at halftime 1:9 to 0:1. The Downs game more into the game in the second half but the halftime difference proved too much to make up.

Our second team travelled to Castledaly on Friday last and after a competitive first half were ahead at halftime 1:3 to 0:3.
