Congratulations: To Michael Lawson who has now reached the Final of Junior North East got talent in the Fiddlers in Carrickmacross. Michael was a participant in Scor na nOg for Aghabog a couple of years ago and to have reached the final of this competition shows just how far he has come since then. At the club’s recent AGM, our cultural officer, Maureen Gavan and the Chairman, Tony McGorman spoke very proudly of the fact that Aghabog would be represented by Michael in the final of this major competition. The final will take place in the Fiddlers in Carrick this Sunday evening 11th Dec at 5:00pm. Michael will need every vote possible on the night so please try and make a special effort to attend.

There’s something about Marty: Congratulations to Marty Fox on being awarded the Senior Player of the Year award at Sundy nights AGM. Possibly the best compliment to pay Marty is to say that this was no surprise. Since returning to football a few years ago, Marty has been a regular on the Senior Team and has showed tremendous dedication and commitment to Aghabog. A corner back by trade, Marty made many successful trips further up the field during the course of the year, picking off a few points in the process. No doubt by winning this years award, Marty will be looking for first refusal on Penalty Kicks next year. In order to prevent this from happening, a petition is currently in circulation and will be submitted to Gerry O’Brien before the start of the new season.


Scor na nOg: Hard luck to our Novelty Act of Caitlin Carolan, Shannon Reilly, Tyler OHanlon,

Alisha McCarville, Leah Leonard and Thomas Smyth who narrowly lost out in the Ulster Semi-Final of Scor last Friday night in Clontibret.
