Suzuki National League Leitrim v Clare

The Senior team put in a vastly improved performance against Clare in Div 2 of the Suzuki National League. Leitrim started brightly and carried the game to Clare but were denied by tenacious defending; Leitrim had the wind in their backs in the first half but had to settle for 3 Naomi Lee frees. The half time score read Clare 1-03 Leitrim 0-03. Leitrim still had lots of possession in the second half but had only a Michelle Reynolds goal to show for all their efforts. In the last 10 minutes Clare pulled away by Scóring 5 points and 2 fortuitous goals. Best for Leitrim were Anna Conlon at centre back and Sarah McManus in midfield. The County Committee are indebted to Brendan McCawley and Ann Marie Cox who have temporarily taken over the reins of the Senior team as the County Committee go in search of a new management team. Unfortunately our selection committee of Pat McWeeney, Helen Ward and Damian Brennan had to step down due to time commitments after the Westmeath game. We want to thank them for their great service to Ladies football over many years and no doubt whey will be involved again. The U14 had a good workout with Longford and the management of Pat McWeeney, Bernie McLoughlin and Kieran Moran are will pleased with the performances of all the players as they try and blend a new team together. Trials for the U16 team are taking place in Ballinaglera this Saturday March 1st at 12pm. Clubs are asked to send all prospective players to the trials.
