Club Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 25.07.11
The Senior continued their good league form with a victory over Cloughaneely on Saturday evening. The Reserves suffered only their second league defeat of the season against the Falcarragh men.
The Juniors Championship playoff with Downings didn’t go ahead after Downings failed to appear in Termon with the match official in place and the team ready to play. It’s a pity after all the effort that was made to get the club to field 3 teams the same evening that this game didn’t take place. They now move on to a first round match up with Glenfin.
The Senior hurlers also had a late cancellation of their Championship match v Burt due to a death in Burt.
Best of luck to Rory, Kevin and Donegal against Kildare on Saturday.
The U-16 Boys Div. 2 team took on neighbours Glenswilly in the Park on Monday night in their Shield semi-final
