Seniors – Last night (Wednesday) the seniors played Inniskeen, result and report next week and on Friday night they are in action again with a trip to Monaghan for an 8.00PM throw-in.

Junior B Last week’s championship match between Blayney and Clontibret was postponed owing to a death in the Clontibret club. The game has been re-fixed for Clontibret next Wednesday night with a 7.30PM throw-in.

U21 – the U21s opened their season with an excellent 3-12 to 1-10 victory over Monaghan Harps on Monday night. Harps were quicker out of the blocks and led by 4 points to 1 after 15 minutes but with Mark Treanor and Ciaran McGinn gradually getting the upper hand at midfield Blayney took over and a hat-trick of goals from the on fire Dermot Malone gave Blayney a 6 point half time lead. There was no let up after the break and a succession of excellent points from Malone (5), Treanor, Lynch and McGinn made the points safe despite a late Monaghan rally. Next Monday night the U21s are away to Aughnamullen at 7.45PM.

Minor – The Minor league continues next Tuesday night with home game against Truagh, throw-in 7.45 in Toome.
