* The Under-14 Hurling Team headed to Warrenpoint last Saturday for the 2013 Féile. In poor conditions the lads battled hard but just came up short against Clonduff 2-0 to 0-3 and against Shamrock’s by 2-4 to 1-2 writes Martin McClean.
The battling performance of the team augurs well for the season ahead. The slippy conditions made it hard to hold a hurl yet everyone coped admirably and with a little more luck in front of goal they could well have turned the large amount of possession into more scores. Hard luck lads. Training Tuesday at 6.15 pm. Hurling Training for P5/P6/P7 boys is at 6.15pm on Wednesday at the Bann Road.
* The Senior Reserve Footballers had a mixed weekend in the All-County Premiere Reserve League Division 1. On Friday night past they visited Saval and recorded an emphatic victory over their hosts in a game they played very well romping home with quite a bit to spare. On Sunday fortunes were reversed when they played Burren at Derryleckagh. In what was a very tight game the lads lost out by a single point in an exciting game against the team favourites to win that League.
* This Sunday will see the Feis being held in St Malachy’s Park. We are fortunate to be represented by our Minor and Senior Footballers in The Sevens Finals against Mayobridge and Clonduff respectfully. The best of luck to all the lads. It was 1989 when we last had both teams in the final in the same year. We are also happy to record that we won both competitions that day in what was a very sunny Newcastle. We hope this occasion will be blessed with good weather for everyone participating at the Feis.
