Club Notes 26th June 2023

Senior Men

Senior men faced Dromid away in the next round of the league on Saturday evening. Mitchels had the wind in the first half and tallied a score of 1-03 only 14 mins in with Dromid kicking their first in the 15th minute followed by another point by Mitchels to bring the score line to 1-04 to 0-01.

Dromid found it really difficult in the first half and by half time Mitchels had the score board going with a score of 2-10 to 0-03 points in favour of the visitors.

In the second half Dromid got back two points to a very high lead to Mitchels, but then another goal for Mitchels now bringing the score to 3-13 to 0-05 points only 9 minutes into the second half.

Dromid scored a goal of their own a much-needed score but Dromid struggled to hold off the visitors and the seniors kicked on to win by a score line of 3-18 to 1-7.

Well done to the players and management and to all who travelled to watch the game. Next game is Last round home V Ardfert date TBC. Stay tuned for more information.

Under 13 Boys

Our U13 Gold team played in the Division 14 county Final last Wednesday in Blennerville against Na Gaeil, our lads hit the ground running and with excellent scores from the forwards we took an early lead.

The Midfield were well on top and never gave Na Gaeil room to breathe, our backs were not to be out done by the other two lines, and only allowed one score from Na Gaeil in the opening half, taking a healthy lead into the break.

The boys never took their foot off the gas and we continued our dominance into the second half with a great contribution from some of our U11’s.
