U-14 Final: St Josephs Under 14 team played Ballymachugh in the final of the U-14 competition on Saturday last 28th May on the 3G Pitch in Kingspan Breffni Park. After an excellent performance from our young players they were unfortunately defeated on a score line of 4-10 to 4-8. A lot of credit must go the players and mentors for getting to the final and while the result did not go our way this time, it will hopefully stand to them in the future.
