Our under 17’s went down 3 –1 to Cregmore on Saturday afternoon in wet conditions in Colemanstown. Cregmore went 1-0 up mid way through the first half and maintained that lead at the break. On the resumption, Cregmore scored another to put the visitors 2-0 up mid way through the second half. However, our boys never gave up and battled very hard against a strong physical side. Paddy Mullins pulled one back for the home side to made it 2-1 and a solid line out in our defence made life difficult for the Cregmore attack and in particular, Liam Carty and Tom Broderick put in great performances. However, Cregmore added to their score line to make it 3-1 at the end of ninety minutes.
Our Under 15’s match and B team matches were called off due to waterlogged pitches. Our club website is being developed at present and if anyone has any photos or information for the archives section, please contact Martina Donnellan on 087 9000526
