With all the bad weather we were un­able to hold our an­nual Easter egg hunt this year, but, not to worry, we still have lots of choco­late to go around so we will be hold­ing a trea­sure hunt on Sun­day, May 22nd in the Me­mo­rial Park at 12 noon! Our raf­fle will also be held at this event so if you haven’t got a ticket there is still plenty of time to do so. See yous all there for lots of fam­ily fun.

We had a busy week on the field. Our Un­der-12s came out on top with a two-point win over An­nacurra on Fri­day night.

Last Mon­day our Un­der-14s lost out to Bray and we played away to Aughrim Mon­day just gone. We also held the Un­der-8 and Un­der-10 blitz last Satur­day. The blitz was a very en­joy­able day for all and a big thanks to the clubs who at­tended and to all those who helped out.


The club sends sym­pa­thy to the Booth­man, Pen­der, and Byrne fam­i­lies on their re­cent be­reave­ments. We wish our club sec­re­tary, De­nis, a speedy re­turn to full health from all club mem­bers.

AGB Un­der-14 boys played An Tochar mid week, and hav­ing been very un­lucky in the open­ing two league games.

AGB Un­der-14s finally got the vic­tory they had de­served in those early games. It came against a strong An Tochar team in Bal­ly­money on a score line of 4-14 to 4-5.

It was a bril­liant show­ing by ev­ery sin­gle panel mem­ber; the for­wards who racked up some bril­liant scores; the bat­tling and hard work­ing mid­field; the de­fence which coped su­perbly with a dan­ger­ous An Tochar for­ward unit and each sub­sti­tu­tion also played an ex­cel­lent and vi­tal part.

AGB Un­der-16 girls played Carnew in the league at Pearses Park. This was a fiercely con­tested game with both teams work­ing hard right from the throw-in. It was Carnew who got off the mark first scor­ing a goal and point in quick suc­ces­sion.

It was then AGBs turn as the girls worked some great scores to get back into the game. AGB went on to play some great foot­ball but it was Carnew who went in lead­ing at the break.

Credit has to be given to one of Carnew play­ers who scored three out­stand­ing in­di­vid­ual goals in the first half. Some teams may have given up at this stage, but not this group of play­ers. In the sec­ond half there was no quar­ter given by ei­ther side with both teams again work­ing tire­lessly un­til the fi­nal whis­tle. It was a great game of foot­ball that fin­ished with a vic­tory for the vis­i­tors. AGB 1-5, Carnew 5-3.

AGB Un­der-12 Girls Di­vi­sion 4, took on Coolkenno dur­ing the week and af­ter a tough game it fin­ished with AGB 4-2 to Coolkenno 2-2, giv­ing the girls four wins in four from the league to date.

Well done to the Un­der-8 and Un­der-10 girls who trav­elled to Balt­in­glass for a blitz on Satur­day morn­ing. An ex­cel­lent dis­play of foot­ball was on show from all the girls.

Welll done to the Un­der-15 Boys: Fer­dia Hunt, Ben Fen­nell, Michael O’Reilly and El­liott Young who played on the Wick­low Un­der-15 county team in a blitz, they lost nar­rowly to Long­ford and had a good win against Water­ford.
