Club Notes 13.06.16

The girl’s under 14 side scored their first league win in round two when they held off a spirited revival from opponents Belnaleck. The side which had lost their opening tie with Irvinestown were to enjoy a breezy first half performance and they reached the interval in a fairly comfortable position but from the changeover onwards they stumbled, failed to add to their half time tally, but in the end had enough of a cushion to survive. Next up for them is a home tie with Enniskillen the visitors.

The annual mass for deceased club members was held on Friday, preceded by a procession from the club pavilion to the church. Members of the club executive and current underage players participated with club secretary Sean Murphy speaking at the ceremony itself.

Two games played on Saturday evening on home soil but it was a case of two defeats.

First up was the long postponed minor league tie with Kinawley and unfortunately this league campaign has been totally undermined by injury to key players.

The team on duty on Saturday was well short of what could be classed as a full strength selection and a sizeable defeat was the outcome. But there had been an enterprising enough opening quarter the team motoring into a decent lead though it was perhaps inevitable that the early spark would be dimmed. Kinawley well in front at the end.

The senior side are also plagued with a raft of players unavailable for a variety of reasons and in this starred game with Roslea they were to slide to another defeat which leaves the team anchored at the foot of the table.

Despite this there was a breezy enough performance from the team on duty and they were a trifle unfortunate to be beaten by a five points margin. Over the course of the sixty minutes there was definitely some fine passages of play woven in and the final scoreboard tally of fifteen points was a just return for the display produced.

Bottom line though is that it is a case of battling relegation for the remainder of the campaign.
