Castleblayney notes

March 22nd, 2011

Seniors – The seniors play Monaghan Harps in St Marys Park this Sunday afternoon at 2.30PM.

Junior B – An under strength junior B team had to share the spoils with Monaghan Harps on Sunday last. Two early second half goals form Gerry Brady and Damian Hughes seemed to have turned the game Blayneys way but a Harps goal restored parity mid-way through the half and although both teams had chances to win a draw was probably a fair outcome. Final score Monaghan Harps 1-10 Faughs 2-07.

Junior C – The Cs recorded a comprehensive 6-14 to 2-06 victory over Emyvale on St Patrick Day. This weekend they face Monaghan Harps at St Marys Park on Saturday afternoon (4.00PM).
