Club Notes 29.02.16

The under 14 side notched up their second win with a fine victory over Coa on Saturday afternoon and there were some fine players on view in what turned out to be a testing enough tussle, Coa proving to be tough opposition.

Tempo however always looked to be the sharper side and they were to lead from start to finish and the team played with terrific commitment all the way through. But they would need to be aware that a lot of very tough games lie ahead.

The minor team opened their league campaign with a comprehensive away victory over Kinawley. Three first half goals had the side well on their way and by the end of the sixty minutes they had rattled up a sizeable scoreline. Defensively there was to be a sound display by full back Darragh Trainor with keeper David Casey also impressing. Judging by this performance the team should be strong contenders for sectional honours.

The senior panel had their first outing of 2016 when they travelled over to Augher for a challenge game. Cobwebs very much in evidence however, the home side scoring a solid win.
