CLG BnaG v St Michaels
Moyle Park, Saturday @ 11am
The Minors had another productive preseason friendly victory over Burt on Sunday which was good preparation for their league opener v St Michaels on Saturday Morning. They defeated the Inishowen side 0-8 to 0-5 in horrible wet cold conditions. A lot of positives have been taken from training in the build up to the league campaign as well as the two friendlies over Cloughaneely and Burt. Manager Aodh McCormack will no doubt be pleased with the progress evident today as the lads have been putting in great work in the past few weeks and signs bode well for the season as this team is full of potential. Squad: Gavin McFadden, Patrick Ferry, Kieran Sheridan, Andreas Afxentiou, Kyle Macauley, Gavin Grier, Conor McHugh, Patrick McCarron, Luke Trearty, Ryan McMahon, Connor Gormley, Odhran Coll (0-2), Marty Doyle, Kane Barrett (0-6, 2f), Cormac Toland, Peter Curran, James McCallum, Jamie-Lee Blaney, Hayden Curran, Shane McBride, Dermot Friel
*Donegal Senior Ladies*
Well done to the Donegal Senior Ladies who made it 3 league wins from 3 after a 5-13 to 1-3 win away to Clare today. Our won Amber Barrett hit the net for the third game running and ended up with a fine personal tally of 1-4. Donegal’s next league game is home to Kildare on 1st March.
*Freshers B All Ireland Championship*
Hard luck to Sean Black and his UUJ colleagues who were defeated 3-3 to 1-2 by UCD in the All Ireland Freshers B Championship Semi Final on Monday.
The Club would like to extend its sympathies to the O’Donnells of lower Mt Marion, Milford, and extended family on the death of Paddy at the weekend. Paddy was grandfather of Senior players Joey Cullen and Adam Serrinha. Funeral took place on Tuesday in St Peters church, Milford. May he rest in peace.
The Club would like to extend congratulations to club man Paul Fisher on his wedding to Grainne at the weekend. All at the Club wish them both many years of happiness together.

*Allianz League Prediction Competition*
A huge 353 points in week 2 propels Dean Boyce from 21st place all the way to the top of the leaderboard! Nicky Boucher also had a great week jumping from 15th to 2nd, where he finished overall last year. Pat Barrett had a better week than his brother, last weeks leader Donall, to sit level in second with Donall slipping all the way down to 14th after a week to forget. Richard Evesson’s mouthing off last week obviously stirred the hornets nest as TJ overtook the elder brother in the heated sibling rivalry!

2=. Nicky Boucher – 513
2=. Pat Barrett – 513
4. David Curley – 510
