Seniors and Reserves  

The seniors lost out  at the weekend to Buncrana on a scoreline of 1-07 to 1-03 while the reserves lost out 1-11 to 1-06. The reserves welcomed back a few experienced players this year with Robert Porter, Lochlainn Byrne, William Logan and Jonathan McCarron. Martin McLaughlin also debuted in goals for this promising young side that train hard and are developing all the time and who are now together for a second year under Terence McLaughlin. They led at half time but Buncrana’s extra experience with several ex-senior players being the difference on the day.

The team lined out: Martin McLaughlin, Cathal Collins, Cormac Cullinan, Conor Quigley, Robert Porter, Thomas McLaughlin, Jonathan McCarron, Joe Doherty, Lochlainn Byrne, Joseph Doherty, Jonathan McLaughlin, Tiarnan Stevens, Padraig McCarron, Daniel Houghton and Ciaran Doherty.

The substitutions made were Christopher McLaughlin for Daniel Houghton, Paco McLaughlim for Jonathan McLaughlin and William Loan for Ciaran Doherty.
