Action on the playing fields has been limited over the last ten days, the progress of the senior county team keeping the domestic senior programme on hold while on the underage front it has again been lowkey.The juvenile side were scheduled to commence their league campaign last week with an away tie at neighbouring Brookeborough but a bereavement in the Brookeborough club caused a postponement. No firm date has as yet been set for the refixture. This league will be run on Wednesday evenings and the other teams competing in Section B are Lisnaskea, Irvinestown, Erne Gaels and St Patricks. Hopefully the campaign will get up and running this evening (Wednesday) with the scheduled home tie with visiting Lisnaskea, throw in timed for 19-30.
Success for the ladies has been very welcome with the senior side recording their first victory in the league when they overcame Enniskillen last midweek and this was then followed up on Sunday with the under 14 side scoring a big win over Devenish in their league final. Congratulations go to all concerned, players and management on a terrific achievement.
The Erne Cup side travelled to Kinawley on Saturday and this was something of a must win affair for them as they are deep in the relegation zone. They came home with a hard earned one point win which will go a long way to ensuring that they will be in the top flight for next season but the job hasn’t been completed just yet and they have to put in a strong finish over the few remaining games on the schedule.
