Under 10 South Westmeath League Finals
Our Under 10 team had a great evening last Wednesday in Cusack Park when they played in the South Westmeath Finals. On a beautiful evening for football, we fielded two teams and played against Castledaly and Ballynacarrigy. Both of our teams gave it their all and played some great football. They have really improved especially over the last few weeks. Well done to everyone, keep it up! This team has a number of games left in the North Westmeath League so they will have plenty of football under their belts before the season ends. Training continues on Monday evenings at 6pm for Under 8, Under 10 and Under 12 panels. Team A: Ryan Corcoran, Shane Seery, Mark Kiernan, Ryan Boyne, Killian Bolger, Darragh Seery, Shane Corcoran, Mark Killian, Eleanor Murphy, Zack Wright. Team B: Sean Kincaid, Warwick Kirby, Cody Finnane, Conor Murphy, Cian Gavigan, Peter Reynolds, David Jackson, Philip Reynolds, Peter Murphy, Odhran Gavigan, Jack Fitzpatrick.
We collected our first brace of points in the league last Friday evening in Tyrrellspass at the expense of the home side . This was a fine game of football from start to finish, played at a brisk pace with some hard hits and fine passages of play throughout. Ballinagore put in a very strong performance in the second half to turn a 0-04 to 0-03 half time deficit, into a three point lead midway through the second half. Tyrrellspass came back at us and reduced this lead to the minimum but our lads fought hard and held out for the win. Final Score Ballinagore 0-11, Tyrrellspass 0-9. This was an important win but we will need at least one more from our two remaining games in this division to remain safe. All efforts now turn to our next championship game against Shandonagh in a couple of weeks, so lets keep the numbers and intensity up at training until then. We have a few lads injured at the moment including Martin Crowe, James Sheerin, Brian Sheerin (from Friday) and Martin Linnane, and we wish them a speedy recovery. Team: Mark Doyle, Robert Gannon, Pat Heduan, Mark King, Dan Gavin 0-2, Michael Ennis 0-2, Kieran Deegan, Eoin Miller 0-3f, Stewart Gavin, Cathal Ennis 0-2, Ciarán Carey (Capt.) 0-2, Paul Maloney, Michael Gannon, Brian Sheerin, James Keegan. Subs used: Ian Seery, Declan Claffey, JJ Hegarty, Pierce Corcoran, Kevin Gannon. Rest of panel: Nollaig Gannon, Enda Claffey, David Slevin.
The numbers drawn this week were 14, 15, 27 and 28. There was no jackpot winner and next weeks jackpot will be €13,020.
