U13 Football League Round 1
Athea played a very strong St. Kierans team on Thursday evening in Athea. After trailing 4:06 to no score at halftime Athea put in a massive performance in the second half losing out in the end 5:07 to 1:2.
We have 10 more matches in the league and if these young players keep training and improving they will be a match for any team in the future.
Panel: Tom Mullane, Patrick Healy, Daniel Leahy, Paddy O’Connor, Tony Ambrose, Jamie Quinn(Capt), Jamie Brosnan, Daniel Hunt, Mark Collins, Conor Fennelly, Mark Ahern, Daniel Broderick, Eoin Kenrick, Aaron Broderick, Conor Leach, Tadhg Hunt, Jack Leahy.
U17 Football Challenge
Shannon Gaels Athea lost their challenge game on Tuesday evening against St.Kierans in Athea.
A lot of positives to be taken from the game and looking forward to seeing them in the league in June.
Hurleys and Helmets Wanted
Athea has a great tradition of playing hurling either with Athea or Templeglantine. Hurling within the club was once again reignited 3 years ago, and as a young club, it is continuing to grow. So to continue this growth we are looking for your old but functional hurleys or helmets that are no longer used.All sizes will be accepted and can be dropped to the clubhouse any Sunday morning between 11 & 12.Thank you for your support.
