It’s not often that you would say to players to celebrate after a defeat in the semi final of a championship, but celebrate they should. At the start of the campaign if you would have said we would reach this point, with a young team that had come up from intermediate, that would have been a high bar and one that many of us would have been delighted to reach. The players and coaches have brought the club on a magnificent journey these last few months, it’s been many a year since we would have seen as many fans travelling and cheering the lads on, we as fans have enjoyed every moment of that journey, the lads have played a great brand of exciting football and have been an inspiration to the young people of the town, you only must look at the demand for club gear to see it. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the players, management and supporters, you have done the club and Ballinamore proud- hold your heads High and shoulders straight because as sure as the sun rises tomorrow you will come back stronger.
Congratulations to Glencar Manor and good luck to them in the final

Well done to our u17 lads who were also in action today against Fenagh
The match was played in slippery conditions with a very strong breeze. SOH had the advantage of the breeze in the first half and led 1-6 to 0-2 at half time. Unlucky to miss two good goal chances also. Fenagh came back stronger in second half and tied the game in the last couple of minutes.
Next up for the lads is a match against Melvin Gaels in the semi on Saturday at 1600 In Manorhamilton.
