Club Notes 15.08.16

Opening game of a busy spell over an extended weekend was the Thursday evening home league fixture for the juvenile against Devenish.

Conditions were poor ,a constant drizzle making things difficult for the players but there was to be a fluent contest with Tempo making a brisk enough start getting early points.

But they were then to be sucker punched by a couple of Devenish breakaway goals and though the boys did respond with a number of points plus a goal close to the break they were some distance adrift for the turnover.

The visitors dictated the initial second half exchanges and when they prised out a further handful of goals they had the game totally sewn up.

The senior side were in action on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon,home games with Maguiresbridge and Ederney respectively and unhappily the dismal tale of woe was to continue with two further defeats.

In the game with the ‘Bridge there was to be a depressing performance up in attack with a swathe of scoring chances being squandered from first minute to last while the opposition on the other hand were exceptionally accurate taking virtually all the opportunities that came their way.

On Sunday it was another reversal but this time there could be some positive pointers taken from the contest. The team did shoot a reasonable tally and showed plenty of resolution and in the end they were to be undone by an error that was penalised to the full.

Just one game left on the programme a tie with Roslea and then the championship comes around. That championship clash is against Enniskillen Gaels at Irvinestown on Friday August 26th, throw in timed for 7-00 pm, and it is earnestly hoped that there will be as full a panel as is available to us under the present trying circumstances to select from.

The club will also be hosting championship games on Sunday August 28th, both IFC fixtures, Maguiresbridge v Derrylin and Lisnaskea v Belcoo. To prepare for these there will be spruce up of the grounds this weekend and all volunteers are welcome.

The Lotto jackpot for Saturday August 13th was not won the numbers drawn being 13 14 17and 28. Winners of the two £25 prizes were Vera Enright and Kate Donnelly, the jackpot for this coming Saturday stands at £4 300.

Team on duty for Saturday August 20 is Paul Colgan and Stephen Jackson, team on duty for Saturdays August 27 and September 3rd is Gary Leonard, Paul Dolan, Brian and Conor Flanagan.
