Club Notes 17.04.17

A satisfying start to the season for the girl’s under 16 side which racked up a solid home victory over St Patrick’s last midweek. With a strong central spine to the lineout the team was generally in control of matters and they were to lead from start to finish, though the Donagh opposition did have their moments also.Among those who featured for the Maguires were keeper Leah Campbell, defender Aoife Bradley plus Blaitin McStravick and forward Megan Hamilton.

Also on the underage front the boys under 14 side competed in the county Feile competition on Saturday afternoon at Derrylin. They had a three match programme which resulted in a terrific draw with Enniskillen but unhappily they were to go under to both the host club and Teemore.

They will be contesting their Feile final next Saturday, details of venue and opposition still to be decided by the county Youth Board.

The Erne Cup team travelled to Teemore during the week but came home still chasing their first victory of the campaign. Beaten by six points this however was an encouraging enough display from the team and a welcome victory should soon arrive.

Much better news on the senior front with this team collecting their second win of the year when they had little trouble in overcoming the limited challenge presented by visiting St Patricks. The Donagh team in fact put up only token resistance and the sixty minutes was a very lowkey affair.

Presumably a tougher test looming next weekend with the visit of neighbouring Maguiresbridge who have made a solid start to their year.

The Lotto jackpot for last weekend was not won the numbers drawn being 2 7 21 and 24. Winners of the two £25 prizes were Emma McCaughey(Howe) and Henry Wilson, c/o the Mill, Mullyknock.

The jackpot for next weekend has now reached a healthy £4 000.

Team on duty for April 22nd and 28th is Seamus Breen, Vernon Murphy, Kieran Ingram and Eamon Maguire.

Don’t forget that the club is presenting the hit GAA comedy, ‘St Mungo’s’ in the Community Centre on Sunday next, doors open at 6-30 and admission is £15.

The weekly Games Session in the Centre also resumes this Thursday after the Easter break, first game at 9-00 and a possible top prize of £2 100 to be won on game ten.

Finally the welcome news that the development of the lower pitch is underway with the contractor on site during the past week.
