Participants will also have the chance of winning great prizes for our club, with any participant reaching their weekly target entered into a draw for weekly prizes. One lucky participant will also win an expert coaching & wellbeing event with Oisin Mc Convilee for our club.
Div 3 County Shield Semifinal
Athea 1-13 Ballybrown 2-5
This match was played in a very muddy Ballybrown pitch in Clarina on Saturday morning last. We started very strongly but didn’t take many of the chances we created, but we still led at the first quarter 4pts to 1pt. In the second quarter they scored 2 break away goals, while we added 4 more points to leave the half time score 0-8 to 2-1. The second half was evenly balanced with us having a 2 pt advantage with a few minutes remaining, when we struck for the goal that was threatened all during the game. This put us 5 pts clear and safely through to the final against Ballylanders.
