Club Notes Week ending Nov 8th

November 8, 2018

This year the u-21 team has amalgamated with Sean Connollys in the 13-aside competition. The team is being managed by Padraig Mulligan, Ciaran Farrelly and Colm Dalton. After recieving a bye in the Quarter Final, they faced the challenge of Ardagh/Gratten Og/Moydow on Saturday evening last in Michael Fay Park. The team put a great performance to win on a scoreline of 3-14 to 0-7 to leave them nicely placed in the final. Team on duty was John McKenna (SC), Leigh McKeon, Tomas Keogh (SC), Greg Nestor (SC), Frank Reynolds (SC), Mark Kiernan, Stephen Lynch (SC), Ciaran Brady, Niall Farrelly, Michael Kilbride, John McGee, Paul McKeon, Adrian Brady. Subs Used: Colm Mulligan, Michael Lynch, Dessie Lennon, Barry McKeon. The final will probably be played in two weeks time so keep an eye on the fixtures. On Sunday next the Senior team take on the challenge of league winners Abbeylara in the Leader Cup Final. After an indifferent year at senior level, recent wins over Ballymahon and Dromard means we go into the final on a good run of form and should provide stern opposition to an Abbeylara team that have been going very well all year. The venue is Pearse Park, kick-off is at 2.30 and we encourage all supporters to come out and get behind the team. There was no winner of the Nov 1st lotto draw (1, 19, 24, 25) of €1100. The €20 lucky dip winners were Ollie McGivney, Ollie Doyle, Cormac Ginty, James P Sheridan. Next weeks lotto takes place in Dolans and Team 1 are on duty.

The recent Church Gate Collection at Purth and Aughnacliffe amounted to €1255. The Club is grateful to all for their generous contributions.
