Training on Mondays and Fridays at 7.00 p.m.

Caherslee was the venue, good open honest to God football was the highlight where we just about got our heads in front in a highly entertaining game in blustery conditions last Wednesday. A goal and three points in the last 4 min just saw us through against a never say die NaGaeil team.
We started positive and soon had our opponents on the back foot with lovely attacking football. Points from Mike (free) Cillian and a cracker from distance from Shane Mc Carthy gave us early sway. However Na Gaeil replied and put our backs under severe pressure until a fine goal and point from Darrian and a lovely score from play from the impressive Cian Holden saw us go in at the break leading 1-05 to 0-02. All our backs held their own along with fierce covering from midfielder Jack Myers kept our opponents to the minimum.
On the resumption we were pegged back for long periods. An early goal and point from NaGaeil left us reeling, but stout defending and never say die approach saw us tack on vital scores, thru Mikey, Ciaran, Cian and another goal from Darrian left us in control. Again Na Gaeil rallied and with five minutes to go led by 1 point.
A brace of minors from Conor O'Brien and a great finish for goal by Shane after good effort from Cian came back off a post left us in front at the final whistle on a score 3-12 to 3-07
Afterwards captain Dominic Craig graciously accepted the trophy on behalf of the team from John Slattery of Town Board.
