U21s make it two out of two

Our U21 football team were in Ned Hall Park last Saturday for round two of the B championship when they played Clerihan, it took our young team a while to settle in this game with some uncertainty and poor passing and decisions, in fact it would take thirteen minutes for Cahir to open their account with a point from Sean Murphy, this was the turning point and our young men seem to get into the game and football started to be played, a couple of more points were added and on seventeen minutes captain Brian McKenna raised the green flag to put the lads well on top of this encounter, on the twenty minute mark we would see the first of two penalty's in as many minutes awarded to our team.

The first was taken by Sean Murphy but the Clerihan keeper done well and brought off a great save, a few minutes later the second penalty was taken by Alan O' Connor but this time the keeper was beaten so the green flag was raised again, at this stage it was one way traffic with Cahir in total control, not to be out done on the twenty fourth minute a run from Stephen Grogan (pictured above) saw him get into the square and fire with his left foot a bullet into the back of the net to earn goal of the game, our opponents had no answer and at half time the score was 3-04 to 0-03, the second thirty seen more points scored by the likes of A. O'Connor and C. O'Brien and half way through Clerihan would score a goal and a couple of points but that was about the size of their purple patch, on twenty minutes Conor O'Brien would score our fourth goal and kill this contest, management made some changes and we saw some good young talent coming onto the field to give us a glimpse of future stars the likes of Jake Kiely and Jake Fitzgerald (pictured) who both scored on their first run out at this level, so final score Cahir 4-11 to 1-06, well done to all the panel of players and their management team led by Brian Enright, slow start but overall a good game to watch with great scores, full team and scorers: Patrick O'Donovan, Patrick Meehan, Keelan Looby, Colin McEniry, Cavan McKenna, Conor Cashman, Ger Quinn (0-1), Stephen Grogan (1-0), Brian McKenna (1-0), Darragh Howard, Eanna Heffernan, Dylan Fitzgerald (0-1), Conor O'Brien (1-2), Alan O'Connor (1-3), Sean Murphy (0-1). Subs Used: Mark Casey, Kevin Grogan, Nicholas Reidy, Jake Kiely (0-1), Jake Fitzgerald (0-2), Eoghan Kelly

Draw the Joker

After last week's popular Win our Jackpot this week started off at a cool €4,000 as a thank you to all our loyal supporters and to keep the interest in our game, it will go up by €200 every week if the jackpot is not won and that makes it one of the best fun games around the area, again we thank you all for your great support of the draw this week's winners are as follows: Sean O'Connor, John O'Donnell, Sinita & William, Dermot O'Connot and Tiarnan McLoughlin.


Our senior county footballers were in action last weekend and drew with Clare, with our club man Liam Casey (pictured) part of that team and scoring a point to help the cause, Liam was also in action during the week with his college team UCD who beat their rivals DCU and again a point from our club man to see out their win, well done to Liam and both teams.
