Universal Graphics Junior Football Championship:

Best of luck to our senior team and management this Saturday as we have our second fixture in this year’s championship versus Aghabog at 4pm in Blackhill.

JFC Rd1 Currin 0-10 Blackhill 2-10 Sunday August 13th

We gained the two points from last Sunday’s opening JFC fixture. An early own goal and a fine goal from Michael Geehan near half time ultimately settled an otherwise tough and even contest.
