 5 in a Row Leitrim U16 Champions – Our U16 girls ended our club season on a high by capturing the Leitrim Ladies Championship 15aside title for an historic 5th time in a row in Cloone last Friday night. An absorbing first half of cracking football seen the sides go in level at the interval – Ballinamore SOH 2-6 to Glencar Manor’s 3-3. Manor were the dominant side in the second half and won the contest on a scoreline of 6-4 to 2-9. Joint captains Hannah Gallagher and Leah Fox were presented with the trophy by the Chairperson of Leitrim Ladies, Michelle Reynolds much to the delight of their teammates, mentors and supporters. Special thanks to their coaches Tommy Gallagher, Martin Johnston, Christina Loughlin and Dolores McCann for mentoring the team all season and for leading them to this historic victory. With weather conditions particularly difficult on a cold December night in Cloone, both teams must be complimented on serving up a very entertaining game of football while credit must also be attributed to the Cloone club whose pitch held up very well given the conditions.

Senior League Champions – Pride of place this week goes to our senior football team who captured the Dunnes Bar ACL Division 1 League title on Sunday last in Avantcard Páirc Seán defeating Ballinamore SOH in a hugely entertaining game of football on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-12.  Manor were led out onto the field by joint captains Adrian Croal and Brian McDonald who were welcome returnees from injuries picked up in the championship semi-final with Gerry Hickey also returning from injury to shore up the defence.  In the opening half Manor were on top leading 2-6 to 0-9 at the interval with Conor Dolan and Seamus Ryder hitting our goals.  In the second half they found a resilient Ballinamore side very hard to break down and in particular the inspired Philip Farrelly in goals who saved his second penalty of the day and numerous shots to keep his side well and truly in the game.  Midway through the second halfBallinamore took the lead but with their backs to the wall our lads came out fighting and finished the contest with 5 unanswered points to claim their 8th Senior League title for the club and our first since 2014 with joint captains Adrian and Brian clearly delighted to be climbing the steps of our county grounds, shoulder to shoulder to accept the Senior League trophy.  Sincere thanks to this group of players who brought honours to the club on Sunday.  We also thank their management team of Shane Ward and Kieran Fox for guiding the team to a senior championship semi-final and senior league success – for the record the team only lost two games all season.  Being in the winning enclosures is a very special occasion for players, their families but most especially for our younger players who aspire to replicate the many Glencar Manor hero’s we have on this senior panel.  We are glad the boys and girls tasted success on Sunday.  Finally, hard luck to the Ballinamore team – we have lost our fair share of finals and know the pain.
