Seniors: Our Ulster Senior League game against Ballymacnab which was fixed for Sunday last was cancelled, thus concluding our Ulster League campaign for the year. The fixtures for the senior league are yet to be released, keep an eye on social media for updates.

 

Reserves: They next play away to Magheracloone this Saturday the 26th of March at 5.30pm in the Division 1.B League. Best of luck to the team and management.

 

Under 19s: Our under 19 team opened their league account on Saturday last away to Inniskeen, where they ran out winners on a scoreline of 2-16 to 2-08. This was a game where the lads showed great steel and determination to come back and finish strongly to come out convincing winners against strong opposition. Their next game is at home to Seans na Mullai on Sunday the 10th of April at 2pm. Best of luck to the team and management.

 

Juveniles: U7s boys training Saturday mornings 9.30am – 10.30am on the Astro pitch for boys born 2015 – 2016. Non players and new players are always welcome, as there is a shortage of players for this age group. Thank you.

 

The club is still looking for a volunteer to coach the under 6 team. If thre are no volunteers, there will be no football for this team for the year, which is a critical age group in the development of the young players in the club. There is a large number of players in this age group who need a coach, if interested, contact Paddy Markey on 0876839256, Finbarr Crowe on 0878310555 or any committee member.

Tiernan Duffy was named Senior Player of the Year 2020, with Shane Forde winning the 2020 Reserve Player of the Year award. The 2021 Reserve Player of the Year award went to Jason Duffy, and the Senior Player of the Year for 2021 was Micheál Bannigan.
