JU­VE­NILE GAA

Last Satur­day saw our Un­der 14’s head to Avon­dale where they took part in the first round of the Feile. The lads were handed a tough group but came through with fly­ing colours. With only three teams in the group it was vi­tal that we got a good start. In our first game we played Michael O’Dwyers, who had al­ready beaten Balt­in­glass.

Straight from the start the lads got stuck in and ran out rather easy win­ners, get­ting a score of 4-12 in half an hour is no mean feat. Some of the foot­ball the lads played par­tic­u­larly in the sec­ond half was breath­tak­ing. In our last game of the day against the mighty Balt­in­glass who had to win to have any chance of qual­i­fy­ing we started slowly and Balto raced into an early lead.

But any­body who has watched this team play knows that they don’t panic and keep play­ing foot­ball. When the Ref blew the whis­tle we had won by a cou­ple of points and hav­ing played two and won two we were through to the next round, which is to be com­ing Satur­day 12th, so please check the fix­tures for venue and time and come and give this tal­ented bunch of lads yours sup­port.

The panel of lads last week-end was S Carthy, L Keogh, S Fenelon, J Shan­non, K Dal­ton, R Greenan, S Dease, V Rooney, D Walsh, R Davis, M Doyle, S Gre­gory, L Turner, K Turner, and Shamac Pawlac. Thanks to Trevor, Robert, Frankie, Mark Pat and Papa.

Ev­ery­thing ran smoothly and ev­ery­body is look­ing for­ward to next week-end. All teams are now back in train­ing and if you want to get in­volved with any of the teams ei­ther play­ing or help­ing out please give our chair­man Papa a ring at 086 1764707. Good to see Michael Dou­glas walk­ing with­out the crutches, its been a long painful road but it’s al­most at an end Michael.

NEW­TOWN JU­NIORS F.C.

Goals for our team’s were scarce last week­end as from six games played we recorded 2 win’s, 1 draw and three de­feats. Our un­der 8’s trav­elled to Wick­low to take on Rovers and came away with a 2-1 vic­tory thanks to goals from Dy­lan Fitzsi­mons & Jamie Dodd.

The 9’s lost 1-nil at home to St.Peters in a game were they strug­gled to get go­ing. It was a home de­feat for the un­der 10’s as well los­ing 3-nil to Avon­more. Best for the 10’s were Cian Walsh, Dar­ren Magee and Me­lanie Clarke.

A blank day in front of goal for the 13’s as they could only man­age a score­less draw at home to Grey­stones in the Shield. Best were Dar­ren Walsh and Ross Davis. The faint ti­tle hopes for our Girl’s un­der 13’s have all but gone af­ter a 2-nil away de­feat to Tem­ple­l­ogue United. The hosts scored in­side the first minute and added their sec­ond in the last 5 min­utes, but credit to the girl’s they kept bat­tling un­til the end but couldn’t con­vert the many chances they cre­ated.

Our Girl’s un­der 15’s won 2-1 away to Broad­ford Rovers. On a pitch clearly show­ing the scars of win­ter goals from Amy Mur­phy and Ge­orgina Canavan se­cured all three points. Best play­ers on the day were Jane Fa­gan, Laura O’Neill and Chantelle Owens.
