Seniors Result Craigbane

Well done to the senior team, with a good win up at Craigbane on Sunday 23rd July.

With the sun shining and not a breeze, the ball was moved with pace in an energy sapping affair. There were a few players in new positions due to injury and some not available who put there hands up with great displays.

The final score was 1-16 to 0-9.

The seniors and reserves are down to play Castledawson on Sunday 30th at Longfield going for three in a row.

Seniors Away to Slaughtmanus

Hard luck to the Seniors this week up at Slaughtmanus for Round 10. The effort can’t be faulted and playing into the wind in the second half they found it hard to pull back the deficit, losing out eventually to a score line of 2-12 to 1-7.
