Connacht Minor Football Championship 2012

Our Connacht Minor Championship kicks off next Saturday June 23rd at 5.00pm in Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada. This is going to be a huge game for our minor team as Roscommon are very strong and are probably favourites to win the Connacht Championship after winning the Connacht League.

In the Connacht League Roscommon had an impressive win Scóring 15 points to our 1 goal and 4 points and everyone was bitterly disappointed with the result but no one more than Mark and his team. They continued with their hard work and even though they were narrowly beaten by Longford they had a great win against Mayo with a score of 3-08 to Mayo’€’s 1-09.

We all know that the Championship can be a lot different to the League and anything can happen. Roscommon won’€’t have it easy when they come to Carrick next Saturday evening after all the hard work that has been put in for this Championship.

Mark Heslin and his backroom team of Gareth Foley, Derek Kellegher and Michael McGuinness have put in a huge effort and commitment to training in preparation for the Minor Championship and we would like to wish them the very best of luck.

Please come out and support our Minor Team who are a great bunch of lads and a big support behind them will make a huge difference.
