Allen Gaels GAA Club Notes 29/08/2018

Senior Championship –We came up short against Aughnasheelin on Saturday evening in Ballinamore defeated on a scoreline of 1-17 to 1-09. It was a very flat performance and a hungrier Aughnasheelin were deserving winners. We have a big task ahead before taking on Glencar Manorhamilton in the last round in 2 weeks time.

 U-17’s – The U-17’s had a good win over Fenagh St. Caillians at home last Monday on a scoreline of 3-12 to 2-10 but were narrowly defeated by Leitrim Gaels in the Shield Final on Sunday evening on a scoreline of 1-18 to 3-07 in Leitrim Village. Well done to the players & management of Alan & Micky McTigue, Noel Beirne & Fergus Moran on their efforts all year and a special word of thanks to Alan who put  in lot of work with the lads all summer.

U-13’s – The boys had a good win over Melvin Gaels in the park last Thursday on a scoreline of 7-11 to 4-05. We play Kiltubrid away this week so best of luck to the team & management Kenneth, Richard & Cyril.

St. Francis Ladies – The ladies have qualified for a semi final against Fenagh in the coming weeks. Best of luck to Paul, Gareth & the squad.
