Club Notes 18.07.16

At last the senior side recorded a victory when in wet conditions of Friday evening they scored a deserved one goal win over visiting Erne Gaels.

Prime reason for the long overdue success was the fact that the lineout on duty was the strongest sent out since the early season fixtures, a number of players back available and others returned after lengthy injury problems.

The win will have instilled a degree of new belief but of course the chances of avoiding a relegation struggle in the end of season play offs still looks remote. However the victory will certainly have encouraged optimism that in those play offs a full strength selection would be capable of surviving while the prospect of a decent intermediate championship run is more than possible.

Two games lined up over the coming weekend, Derrygonnelly on Friday evening, Maguiresbridge on Sunday.

The minor team produced a fine team display to dispatch opposing Kinawley from the championship and they will now take on Teemore next Saturday in Brewster Park in the ‘B’ decider. Against Kinawley the team always looked the more cohesive side and they were to lead all the way over the sixty minutes. With a full complement of players back available there is an optimistic view that this title can be claimed come the weekend, the game incidentally the curtain raiser to the ‘A’ championship decider.

Throw in is timed for 6-45 and hopefully there will be strong support present for the boys in their bid to claim the title.

A promising under 10 panel of players competed at Lissan last Saturday in a blitz competition and there were two sides fielded. Both performed admirably with a number of victories recorded in an event which is primarily aimed at providing games, no trophies etc at the finish.

Tempo Og programme has concluded and will take a summer break, resuming in the early autumn. Warmest thanks go to all those who assisted in delivering the weekly sessions. The summer Cúl Camps are next on the agenda the final week of July scheduled for this annual event.
