Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 23/07/2018

Senior Championship – The championship kicks off with a Friday evening match against Bornacoola in Cloone at 6:30pm. Best of luck to the squad and the management team of Sean, Paddy & Angus.

Dunnes Bar Division 2: The league concluded with an anti-climax on Saturday evening as Cloone conceded the points in our last outing and a draw between Annaduff & Dromahair means that we are tied with Dromahair on 18 points and on the head to head. As score difference is also out due to the concession a playoff will be required after the championship. Well done to the players and management on their efforts all year.

St. Francis Ladies – Well done to the ladies who had a big win over Fenagh on Sunday morning. Scorers were Aine Flood 3-03; Ailish Cornyn 2-02; Katie Kelly 2-02; Ciara McPartland 1-03; Roisin McGrenaghan 0-02;  Dara Morahan 0-01;  & Mairead McCawley 0-01. We play again on August 11th. Best of luck to the panel and to Paul & Gareth in the remaining games.

Newtowngore Engineering U-17’s – The U-17’s lost out narrowly to Drumkeerin last week on a scoreline of 2-10 to 2-07. We play Leitrim Gaels away this week and are at home to St. Josephs on Monday evening. We will have a report next week. Best of luck to all concerned.

Barna Recycling U-13’s – The lads are at home on Thursday evening to Ballinamore Sean O’Heslins. Best of luck to the team & management.

U-11’s – We hosted St. Marys in a very enjoyable blitz in the park on Friday evening. Well done to all the players for their efforts. There is another blitz against Melvin Gaels on Saturday morning in the park at 11:15am.
