U18’s: The under 18 amalgamation team Óglaigh Naomh Buach (Toome/Corduff) will contest the Division 3 League Final on Thursday 6th July at 7:30pm against Sean McDermotts – in Drumhowan. Best of luck to the team and management.
Championship: The draw for the 2023 Intermediate Championship was completed on Monday 3rd July, Toome were drawn out in Group 1 along with Carrickmacross (seeded), Killanny, Sean McDermotts and Emyvale. Save the dates (all dates subject to change and are the weekend of the date shown): 13th August – Toome v Sean’s; 20th August – Emyvale v Toome; 27th August – Bye; 9th September Toome v Carrickmacross; 16th September – Killanny v Toome. #BeThe16thMan.
Intermediate League:  Toome played Emyvale in a home fixture on Friday last, 30th June. This was a disappointing result as Toome played some good flowing football for large spells of the game. Mistakes at the back and poor decisions on the field resulted in turnovers and Emyvale were able to capitalise on this. A tough game that was played in good spirits, Toome will need to learn from this as they find themselves in the league relegation battle and need to grind out the next couple of results in their favour. FT Score: Toome 1:12 – 3:08 Emyvale. Next outing is Saturday 8th July in an away fixture to Clones. Please be sure to come along to show your support. #BeThe16thMan.
