Senior League

We travelled to Moate last Sunday evening to play the home side in the fourth round of the league. Moate settled well and converted three of four early frees to give themselves a good lead. Ballinagore converted chances from Eoin Miller, Declan Claffey, Ian Seery and Pat Heduan to leave the half time score at 0-8 to 0-4 in favour of Moate. The second half was similar to the first with Moate being more clinical in the forward line from frees and open play. There were further points from Stewart Gavin, Eoin Miller and Ciarán Carey but it finished Moate 0-15, Ballinagore 0-8. There were some good performances from the backline and some players were returning from long spells on the sideline, but a lot more work needs to be done before the championship which begins in three weeks time. Team: Mark Doyle, Mark King, Martin Linnane, Robert Gannon, James Sheerin, Pat Heduan 0-1, Paul Maloney, Stewart Gavin, Eoin Miller 0-3f, Cathal Ennis, Dan Gavin, Brian Sheerin, Ciarán Carey (Capt.) 0-1, Ian Seery 0-1, Declan Claffey 0-1f. Subs Used: Michael Gannon for Declan Claffey, James Keegan for Robert Gannon, Pierce Corcoran for Stewart Gavin, Christy Maloney for Cathal Ennis, Shane Heraty for James Sheerin. Rest of panel: Willie Gavin, Kevin Gannon, Nollaig Gannon, Martin Crowe, Enda Claffey, David Pidgeon, We welcome David Pidgeon to the senior panel. This was his first outing with the team and hopefully he will have a long and successful career with the club.  The seniors play Garrycastle next Sunday evening at 6.45pm in Ballinagore, while in the Junior league we play Milltown this Thursday evening at 6.30pm in Milltown.
