Club Notes 20.0.16

The annual Paul and Orla Bogue underage blitz competition will be held this Saturday. This event has proved to be highly successful since its inception and it promises to be another such occasion this coming weekend.

There will be two separate competitions starting with the under 12 mixed which gets underway at 10-00 and this will be followed up by the minor girls which is scheduled to commence at 1-30 pm. Teams competing at under 12 level will be Belcoo, Roslea, Newtownbutler, Lisnaskea, Derrylin, Coa, Maguiresbridge and Tempo.

At minor grade the teams are Belnaleck, Newtownbutler, Maguiresbridge, Knockninny, Trillick and Tempo. Anyone who wishes to give a helping hand in organising what is a busy programme of games is more than welcome to come along and do so.

The senior side’s tale of woe in the league continued with the team suffering another defeat, this latest reversal being a home setback against visiting Devenish. Again there was a much understrength lineout on duty and except for a brief, bright opening the team was always under pressure. With some more starred games still on the schedule and an ongoing injury list the prospect of turning the league campaign around looks increasingly remote.

Lotto jackpot for the weekend of Saturday June 18th was not won the numbers drawn being 4 8 18 and 24. Winners of the two £25 prizes were Conor Meehan and Michael Jackson, Doon. The jackpot for next weekend stands at £3 500 and the team on duty is Gerard Fee and John Pakenham. Team on duty for Saturdays July 2 and 9 is Sorcha Johnston and Damian Breen.

The girls under 14 side had a disappointing result in their recent league tussle with Enniskillen, being well beaten in the end by a much stronger opposition.

It is intended that work on the training grounds development will commence at the end of this month and it is anticipated that the works will take approximately six weeks to complete. It is hoped therefore that the pitches will be available for use in mid summer 2017.

The club wishes to particularly thank all those who have taken up membership of the Club 100 Draw which has gone a substantial way to fund the development. Thanks also go to those who regularly attend the weekly Games Session in the Community Centre and who support Lotto. Without the financial return from these the club would be unable to go ahead with the provision of facilities for the youth of the parish.

The under 10 squad put in a terrific performance in reaching the decider of the Derrygonnelly tournament at the weekend, but were to be defeated by Kinawley in the final itself.

Finally Tempo Og continues on Sunday, programme from 12-00 to 1-00.
