Well done to the u16 team who beat a Tyholland / Fergal O’Hanlon amalgamation in a challenge match on Sunday last. The u16 league gets underway this day fortnight, 14th April with a home tie against ‘Blayney.
The u14s turned on the style on Saturday last with two excellent performances with the Division 2 team victorious over Truagh, while the Division 5 team got the better of Scotstown. Both were exciting, high scoring games and the boys did themselves proud. Well done. Next up for the u14s is the championship with the Division 2 team again taking on Truagh at home on Saturday week, 9th April, while the Division 5 team got a bye in their first round of the championship.
