Scotstown Notes

April 3rd, 2012

Senior League: The 2012 Credit Union Senior Football League gets under way on Wednesday, April 11th when our Seniors take on Monaghan Harps in a home fixture. Throw-in is at 7pm.

Reserve League Division One: Our B team had a busy, but productive weekend with a game on Friday evening, and another on Sunday afternoon. We made the trip to Latton on Friday last and came away with the points in a game Scotstown controlled for long periods. A youthful side mixed with a few more experienced campaigners coped well with what Latton threw at them to finish as winners on a score of 1-10 to 0-8. The team was: Cian Mohan; Niall Sherry, William Carroll, Adrian Carbin; Fintan Treanor, Fergal McPhillips, Ciaran Treanor; David McCague, James Hamill; Shane Rice, Paul Grant, Orin Heaphey; Paul Sherlock, Mark McDevitt, Elliot Maguire. Subs used: Ross McKenna, Darragh Stirrat, Mark Corrigan, Niall Corrigan, Stephen Sherry. Castleblayney were the opposition on Sunday afternoon in a home fixture at Pairc Mhuire. The Faughs had a convincing win against Truagh on Friday night, so this was always going to be a good test for the Blues. There wasn’t much to choose between the teams in an absorbing contest. Scotstown perhaps had the better of the chances overall, but Castleblayney held on for a draw with the final score being 1-10 apiece. This was enough to ensure that Scotstown remain unbeaten in the division, and on top of the table after three rounds of matches. The team was: Cian Mohan; Mark Corrigan, William Carroll, Adrian Carbin; Fintan Treanor, Fergal McPhillips, Ross McKenna; Stephen Sherry, James Hamill; Orin Heaphey, Paul Grant, Shane Rice; Paul Sherlock, Mark McDevitt, Elliot Maguire. Subs used: Niall Sherry, Darragh Stirrat, Daniel McNally, Niall Corrigan, Myles Treanor. The next fixture for the B’s is away to Clontibret on Saturday evening, April 7th. Throw-in is at 6.30pm.

Minors: The Minors had a good start to the season with a convincing win over Monaghan Harps away last week on a score of 1-16 to 0-8. The Minor League Division One continued on Tuesday evening when Scotstown had a home game against Carrickmacross – see the results section of this paper for the result. The next fixture is on Tuesday, April 10th when we take on Castleblayney in Scotstown at 7pm.

Under 16’s: Competition starts on Tuesday, April 12th with the first team at home to Donaghmoyne, and the seconds away to Inniskeen.

Under 14’s: We are away to Truagh this Saturday, April 7th at 12 noon in the first round of the Championship. All support would be very much appreciated.

Under 12’s: The Spring Leagues began last Saturday, with two games down for decision at Scotstown. In the curtain raiser, our B team were defeated by a good Tyholland outfit. The A team enjoyed better fortune, as they defeated neighbours Truagh. The next round of fixtures take place on Saturday, April 14th.

Allianz League:  The county team will be out to end Tyrone’s 100% league record when the sides clash at Healy Park, Omagh this Sunday. Throw-in is at 2.30pm.

Handball Juvenile Club Leagues: On Thursday evening last, the Group 2 semi-finals and final for the Jack Murphy Perpetual Shield took place between James Curley v Fintan Hackett and Conor Mohan v Adrian Grew. In the first semi-final James won both games, but Fintan played very well and was only defeated 15 – 14, 15 – 9 with some great rallies in both games. The second semi-final between Conor Mohan and Adrian Grew was won by Conor who had a lethal Z serve. For Adrian, who only took up playing handball recently, it was a great achievement to reach the semi-finals and he played some excellent handball throughout. The big question in the final between James and Conor was who would have the better serve, as both these players are superb and very well matched. As it turned out, Conor played the best he has played all year with brilliant returns and passing shots before winning 15 – 9, 15 – 8. James, who is one of the best prospects in the club, played very well, but this time it is Conor’s name that will be added to the list of winners of the Jack Murphy Shield. Well done to all the players who took part in this group, and the other two groups. A special mention also to Arthur King, the main organiser of the competitions who gave a lot of time and effort to ensure that the leagues were such a success.
