The junior A team fixture was switched from Cullen to Cashel last Sunday, where the team kept up their push for Division Two honours with a 2 – 0 victory over Cashel B. The goals were scored by Leonard Leahy and Barry O’Dwyer, who was also unlucky not to be credited with a second from a brilliant free kick. Next Sunday the team are away from home again, with Rosegreen as their opponents. All the team’s remaining fixtures are then at home.
