Many thanks to all those who helped out on Saturday with teas and sandwiches and worked in the club shop.  Our own U12 girls had a great day and played fantastic in all their games. Well done to everyone involved.

The season has came to an end for the Under 14 girls. On Tuesday they played Glenelly in the championship.  Glenelly started strong in the first half with a number of goals, but our girls never let their heads drop they continued to played with good fighting spirit and the second half was a much tighter affair, they were unfortunate in the end as Glenelly went on to win the game.  We would like to thank all the girls and management for their commitment throughout the season.  We hope to see you all involved next season again.
