Shannon Gaels

U14 League Div. 3 Round 4 Shannon Gaels 4-12 St. Dominic’s 9-11 - Another bad result for our U14 team. Going in at half time we were five points down. Following a frank team talk at half time the lads started the second half with the right attitude. Within 15 minutes they were leading by 3 points but alas lost concentration and let the opponents back into the game with a few soft goals. Our next game is at home on Monday evening 25th at 7.00pm against Dromard. With two games left in the league we need 100% commitment from all players. Our U16 squad had a useful challenge game on Tuesday evening last against Southern Gaels.

Even though we didn’t perform at all in first half our lads knuckled down in the second half to win the game with a two point margin. Our U8’s are out in Carrickedmond on Wed 27th April at 7.00pm in Go Games blitz. U6 to U12 training as usual on Thursday from 7.00 to 8.00pm in Clonbonny. Best of luck to Aaron Madden and Longford Minors who play Westmeath in Pearse Park on Wednesday at 7pm. If Longford minors lose on Wednesday our Minors are away to Colmcille on Sunday 1st May at 3.00pm in Minor League. Well done to Senior team who added another valuable point on to the league table.
