Buncrana Senior Footballers got off to a winning start in the All County League with a win over neighbours Malin.
In a game that saw passion, Buncrana showed that they had been hard at work over the last number of months. A team combined of experience and youth, we saw a great performance from young starts such as Noel McLaughlin, Bruce Waldron and Conor Grant. Peter McLaughlin was in great form in midfield and was joined by a new addition to Buncrana, Kevin Campbell.
Oisin O’Flaherty was also present and as usual covered most of the Scarvey throughout the sixty minutes. But we couldn’t pass without mentioning two great scores from Odhran X, wide out on the side of the pitch over 45 metres- great scores in any game! The game finished Buncrana 1-7 Malin – 1-3.
Scorers for Buncrana – John Campbell 1-1, Odhran Doherty 3pts, Noel McLaughlin, Oisin Doherty, Shane McClean 1 point each.
Well done to our reserves who also ran out winners against Malin. We wish Kieran McNicholas well who sustained an injury yesterday.
Well done to Aoife Lennon who was again on signing duty before the Donegal hurling league match this weekend. She is flying the club flag and doing us proud.
Well done to our club lads who were part of the Donegal senior hurling team this week. They had an impressive win over Monaghan.
