Ardagh/Moydow/Glen Community Games
Our U-14 and our U-11 Tag Rugby teams competed in the County Finals recently. The standard of the teams in the competition was very strong and our teams played brilliantly on the day.
Our U-14 team comprising of Aoife Sheridan, Colm Hoysted, Diarmuid Sheahan, Gareth Mulleady, Kevin Lynch, Kyle McConnan, Rebecca Oâ€™ Kane and Sophie Hogan met Killoe in the semi final. The teams were well matched and provided the spectators with great entertainment for 30mins. However Killoe proved the stronger team on the day and progressed to the final.
Our U-11 team comprising of Cathal Farrell, Conor Hogan, Emily Garcia, Jack Gallagher, Jack Mulleady, Katie Lynch, Leah Sheridan, Melissa Oâ€™ Kane, Ronan Keenan, Sarah McPhillips and Sean Hogan met Newtowncashel in the semi-final. The AMG team proved to be the stronger team on the day and progressed to the final where they were up against Killoe. Both teams were very strong and it was a very tight match. The spectators were once again provided with a fantastic game and the AMG team proved the better on the day and emerged victorious. Thank you to our coaches David Farrell, Brendan Hogan, Paddy McPhillips and Andrew Lynch, and thank you to all the parents for their commitment in having them at the weekly training sessions.
