Club Notes Week ending August 16th

November 8, 2018

On Saturday evening last, we exited the Peter Hanley Motors Longford Senior Football Championship when we were defeated by Clonguish in the Quarter Final at Pearse Park. 

Clonguish got off to the perfect start with a goal within the first minute of the game. We battled back well and there was just one point between the teams at the interval – 1-7 to 0-9.

On the resumption of the second half, we allowed Clonguish score 1-6 in the opening ten minutes to take control of the match and pull further ahead.
However, we never gave up and the Clonguish goal keeper was in fine form, with two superb late saves from Declan Farrell and Paul Murtagh, while earlier on Tommy Doyle hit the cross bar with a rasping shot from a quick free. We will now be saying farewell to Sean Connolly who we enjoyed having around for the past 12 months and hope he returns for another year in the very near future. We wish Clonguish all the best in the semi-final.

Team v Clonguish: Gavin Tonra, Brian Brady, Noel Farrell, Paul Kennedy, Gary Murtagh, Francis Kavanagh, Anthony Gormley, Enda Farrell , Declan C Reilly, Paul  McKeon, JP Reilly, Kevin Farrell, Tommy Doyle, Declan  Farrell, Podge Murtagh.

Subs used: Ciaran Brady, Paul Murtagh, Joe Kellegher, Niall Hudson.
