The Seniors and Reserves travel to Trillick this Saturday 23rd August for the next round of the league, Reserves at 4pm and Seniors at 5.30pm
Ladies Football
The ladies took on Castlederg on Sunday evening past in the championship in Killyclogher. An end-to-end first half saw an outstanding performance from defence along with a few point blank saves from Laura Kane keeping Galbally in it as they were unlucky in front of goal. With only 3 points between the sides at half time it was anybody’s game. Despite a goal from Sarah Carberry, Castlederg proved too strong and continued to chip over the points to progress to the next round. Final score: Galbally 1-2 Castlederg 1-12.
