Club Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 23.05.11
The Seniors began their Championship campaign with an impressive win away in Dungloe on Sunday while the Reserves have it all to do to force a playoff with the Rosses men. Both teams are at home to Malin this Saturday evening with 5:30pm (Reserves) and 7:00pm (Seniors) throw-ins.
The Juniors got their Championship campaign off to a good start with an away win in Downings in the Preliminary round. In a tight game they just came through but will need to work hard to ensure their passage to the 1st Round. They are at home to Glenswilly in the League this Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
The Senior Ladies lost their opening Championship game at home to Four Masters on Sunday. Hard luck to our representatives on the Girls Co. Minor team that lost their Ulster crown to Tyrone on Saturday despite 2-01 from our own Ciara Grant.
The U-16 Boys footballers narrowly lost their League Final to Northern rivals Buncrana going down by just a single point.
The semi-finals of the James Gallagher Memorial Tournament went ahead in the O’Donnell Park on Saturday. Despite the very wet conditions, the football played was of the highest quality and all players are to be commended for their skill and endeavour. St. Eunan’s and Ardara advanced to the final but we will have all teams back on finals day. The club would like to extend its best wishes to Cian Doherty of Naomh Conaill who suffered an arm injury and we wish him a speedy recovery. Special thanks to all those who helped out with teas and food on the day. Thank you to referees Marcus Harley and Michael Mulhern for officiating at the games.
There were no U-12 Go Games on Monday night due to the stormy conditions. The U-12’s will now take on Gaoth Dobhair on Friday evening in the Park while the U-11 game v Naomh Colmcille has yet to be reaffixed.
The U-10’s were in action way to Fanad on Saturday and left Portsalon with a good victory. They are in Downings next time out on June 4th. The U-9’s hosted Convoy, winning one and losing one.
