Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 06/04/2018

Dunnes Bar Division 2 – We kicked off our league campaign at home against Mohill on Easter Sunday in the park. We made a slow start against Mohill’s second team and trailed 1-02 to no score after 10 minutes but a Gareth Higgins goal settled the nerves & in the 10 minutes before halftime we hit 2-06 to turn the game around the goals from Thomas Mulvey & Mark Gunning. The halftime score was 3-06 to 1-03 and we added a further 7 points after the break to secure a comfortable win. Scorers were: Nicholas Moore 0-06; Gareth Higgins 1-02; Thomas Mulvey 1-01; Mark Gunning 1-00; Bryan Beirne 0-02; Niall Sorohan 0-01; Martin Raftery 0-01. No details yet of next weekend’s fixture but best of luck to the lads & the management team.

Newtowngore Engineering U-17 League – The U-17’s were beaten by Ballinamore Sean O’Heslins in the park on Wednesday by 1-15 to 1-08. Best wishes to Emmet Moran for a speedy recovery after suffering a serious ankle injury during the match. We have 2 games remaining against St. Josephs & St. Marys so best of luck to Mickey, Fergus, Noel and the team.

Barna Recycling U-13 League – The U-13’s lost out away to Annaduff last Thursday 4-06 to 2-02 and had a good win over Fenagh in the park on Sunday evening 6-08 to 1-07. Best of luck to Cyril, Kenneth, Richard & the lads in the Shield semi-final next week.
