Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 20/09/2018

Connacht Gold Senior Championship – The lads were in action on Saturday in Paric Sean against Glencar Manor in a titanic match to determine who would progress to the Semi Finals. It was a great a game with the lads putting in a big performance for the large crowd that were in attendance. It was a game that had it all with great scores from both teams, end to end football. And a fantastic point to level the score in injury time. Hopefully as many of you as possible can get to the replay in Pairc Sean on Saturday at 17:30, it promises to be a mighty match with the winners playing Mohill in the semi final.

Best wishes on a speedy recovery to Keelan McHugh who was injured in the match

Smith’s Monumental Leitrim Intermediate Championship – Our Intermediate team were in action on Sunday against Leitrim Gaels in the quarterfinal of the championship. They put in a great performance against a very good Leitrim Gaels team but were unable to progress to the semi-final losing the game 2:14 to 0:10. Over the course of the campaign these lads have played some great football and have certainly shown that they deserved to be in this competition defeating some first team squads and playing a good brand of football. Were sure they will be back in contention next season.

U15 – Our U15s had another good win last Friday evening away to Fenagh. In difficult conditions we eventually prevailed with a scoreline of 4:09 to 3:06.

Our next game is at home this Friday at 6.30pm against Annaduff. Please come and support the lads.
