His­tory was made last week when New­town GAA en­tered an U14s girls team in to Feile. In the first match we could see we were rusty play­ing against a sea­soned team who went on to win the tour­na­ment but nev­er­the­less the girls bat­tled hard.

Our next 2 games were very close, un­for­tu­nately we didn't win ei­ther but there was never much be­tween us and the other 2 teams. Jade Boyse was like a lit­tle ter­rier at half back, Ker­ryann Hamil­ton made some out­stand­ing runs from mid­field and scored some lovely points.

Ciara Dease was bury­ing goals in the back of the net, our 2 goal­keep­ers Kate­lyn and Alanna made some great saves, Kate­lyn Syn­nott, Cody McMa­hon and Rachel Carthy played their hearts out and never stopped bat­tling for the ball. Hats off to our younger girls Dan­isha, Laura, and Laragh who have 4 years at this age group, these girls will be a force to be reck­oned with.

Each and ev­ery player on the team showed the New­town never say die at­ti­tude to­day, my­self and Sarah couldn't of been prouder of them. As the say­ing goes “things can only get bet­ter” and this team has a very bright fu­ture ahead of them :) UP THE MAG­PIES!!

There was no win­ner of last weeks lotto jack­pot win­ning num­bers were 2,3,15,26, next weeks jack­pot is €3,800.
