Club Notes 04.07.16

The Erne Cup side was the busiest team in action over the past week, two league fixtures played, resulting in mixed fortunes.

They began with a postponed clash with Teemore in midweek and the squad was to put in a lively effort which ensured a welcome victory. Two Sean Breen first half goals gave the side a more than adequate cushion for the second half and they eventually came through with five points to spare.

On Saturday the team tackled Devenish but there was to be no back to back successes as they lost out by an eight points margin.

Playing with the breeze in the opening thirty minutes the team were unable to even establish a lead for the second period, in fact they were a point in arrears and Devenish dominated from the changeover onwards.

The under 16 side commenced their season with an away meeting with Derrylin and it was not to be a winning start to the Section B campaign. Over the first half the team was backed by a stiffish wind and they did make headway, reaching the interval holding a lead.

But this was not a particularly convincing advantage and Derrylin were to be the side who dictated the closing exchanges, finishing with

The proceeds from the Games Session of last week were donated to parochial funds and the club wishes to thank those who attended, a slightly bigger turnout than normal on this occasion. Club members in particular are encouraged to support the weekly event at least on a sporadic basis.

Financial return from the Thursday evening function is disappointing. That being the case ,hovering in the air, is the possibility that the club will be unable to operate this marquee parish function. The Games Session has an important social aspect and it would be unfortunate to see its demise.

The Tempo Og programme will continue for the next two Sundays and the Cúl Camp summer event will run from July 25 to 29th.
