Ballinamore Club Notes – 09/08/17

Connacht Gold Senior Championship


It was another good performance by the seniors in Cloone this time against Gortletteragh. Having won our first championship game last week, it was certainly another important match and one we needed to win with the games coming thick and fast. The lads started well with Niall McGovern ending the game with an impressive 2:07, and the lads went in at half time leading by 2:10 to 0:4, the good form continued in the second half with the final score 3:20 to 0:9. It was a good performance all round and good preparation for this Fridays game against Aughawillian. The Willies will certainly offer a sterner test, and after our loss in the league to them it will certainly be one the lads are up for, a great game instore and one not to be missed. Hopefully as many of you as possible will make their way to Cloone to cheer the lads to victory.
Next up for the lads is Aughawillian at 20:30 on Friday in Cloone


Pyramid Bookmakers Junior B Club Championship


Our Junior B lads started their championship campaign on Saturday against Bornacoola and despite a good performance they lost by a point. The final score was 1:13 to 1:12, hopefully the lads will get the win they deserve in their next outing


Well Done


Well done to our u16 boys who played in the Bryan Cullen invitational tournament on Sunday. The lads played very well and only lost out in the Semi finals to Corofin having beaten Clane from Kildare and Dr. Crokes of Kerry in the group stages. The lads certainly showed that there is no shortage of skill or guile in Leitrim football at an underage level. Many thanks to Bryan Cullen and Skerries GAA for hosting this very well ran and fantastic event, special thanks also to the players, mentors, management and parents for giving up their time to make it all happen


U13 Boys

SOH U13 Boys suffered their first championship loss away to Leitrim Gaels last week. In a dogged affair the SOH lads finished on the wrong side of a 4:10 to 1:14 score line. Great credit to both sides in a hard fought encounter with both sets of players giving their all. Next game at home to Gortletteragh on Thursday at 7pm. Squad:
Adam Kaminski , Akin Talabi , Micheal O’Brien, Dara Gavin , Killian Maguire, Colm Gartland Tommy Smith, Cian McGovern, Sam Cullen, Liam Reynolds, Dylan Reynolds, Paul Moran, Thomas Brady, Eoin Connaughton, Oisin McCarty, Cathal McCarty, Gavin D’Arcy, Naoise McManus, Paul Honeyman, Brian Sweeney.
