Piarsaigh An Ghallbhaile Notes: Week Beginning 6th October 2014

October 9th, 2014 | News

Senior Football The Seniors’ long journey up to Aghyaran on Saturday unfortunately produced no joy. Final score 2-9 to 0-7. This Sunday sees the boys taking on Derrylaughan in the final game of the year at 12.30pm and 2.00pm in Galbally.

Youth Football The U16 boys suffered an agonising 1 point defeat by Dromore in the Grade 1 League QF. This concludes the competitions for the year, but the boys look forward to the Kildress tournament this Saturday.

The U16 girls were defeated by a strong Cookstown side on Saturday past in the Grade 2 Championship. Cookstown’s dominance in the first half sealed the deal, despite a more competitive second half. Many thanks to Sinead and Enda and to all the girls for their commitment and hard work throughout the season.

The U12 boys took part in the Maghera Tournament at the weekend, and made it to the QF. Well done boys.

The U8 boys were successful in winning the Carrickmore tournament on Saturday past, defeating Magherafelt in the final. Well done also to the U10 boys who took part. The club wishes to thank all the coaches, mentors and parents who were involved in the U6, U8, U10 and U12 teams, your dedication and commitment is key in starting our youth in their Gaelic football journey.

Galbally’s Got Talent Preparations are well underway for our Galbally’s Got Talent show on 29th November, with rehearsals beginning soon. Again, we welcome anyone who would like to help out with the event and to contact a committee member if this is the case.

Heart Screening The club are hoping to organise heart screening for our players from underage to senior. We don’t have to look far to see how important these short examinations are, and how vital they can be to saving lives, and so we urge all our players and parents of players to think about screening. Anyone interested is to contact any member of the committee, with more details to be released pending numbers.

Club Lotto This Week’s Numbers: 16, 6, 15, 3. Lucky Dip Winners: Mickey Gillespie, Rosie Brannigan, S. McGee (Altaglushan), Seamus Carberry (£25 each). Jackpot now stands at £4100.

Club Shop The club shop will be open every Friday 7.00-8.00pm and during senior home games.

Sympathy Notices. The club wishes to express its sympathy to the family of Patrick Armstrong on his passing, our thoughts are with you at this time.
