The Junior B football team were away to Convoy on Friday last and played out a good win. This victory leaves the lads top of their group and they now progress to the semifinal of the Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure Junior B Championship.

Due to fixture changes the senior footballers had no game at the weekend.

Last Wednesday evening the U-21 footballers recorded a four point win over Downings and their next match will be a quarter final appearance with the opposition to be confirmed later.

The U-16 lads continued their winning form with a victory over Naomh Mhuire Conmhaigh and are fixed to play Glenfin next.
