Our Junior B footballers advanced to a West League Semi Final after defeating St. Senan’s in an entertaining game last Friday night. Despite missing several starters from our match against Athea, we still managed to field a strong line up brimming with youth and experience led by captain Pakie Neville. The final score was 2-12 to 3-8 with both goals coming from David Holland.
Well done to all as this was a fantastic win and testament to the work being done throughout the club when missing so many players from the last day to be able to field a panel of 23 players. Our next game is provisionally fixed this Friday night against Granagh/Ballingarry in the Bog Garden. All support welcome and best of luck to all involved.
