In the U-12 Football League Cloughaneely were the visitors to Páirc na nGael on Wednesday evening as our under 12 boys had their first league outing of the season. There was plenty of skill on display in 2 competitive games. The 2006 boys were up first and there were strong performances by Mark Patterson in goal, Jake Grimes and Andrew Nicols in defence, with Dáithí McDaid and Jack Keys showing well in Midfield.  DJ McCauly was a real handful up front and took his scores well. The 2005 boys came up against a strong outfit, however they battled hard to the end with good performances from Neil O'Baoil, Ben Winters, with Mark Margay and Joseph Patton hitting 3 pointers. Next up is a trip to neighbours Glenswilly.


Bingo continues every Monday in Arena 7. The Jackpot this week is €4100. Lines are €40 and Houses are €130. Doors from 8pm. Eyes down 9pm. All welcome.
