Junior Footballers played their second game of the championship on Saturday last in Monroe where Newcastle were the opposition. After a defeat against Ardfinnan the previous week this was a game we needed to win. Things did not go our way and along with some wasteful use of the ball Newcastle were victorious by 1-14 to 1-7. Team: Richard Needham, Kieran Clancy, Colm Dunne, Eamon Needham, Aaron Robbie Meagher, Paddy Moroney (Captain), Shane Gorey, Conor Barry, Paul Horan, Nicky Kearney, Tony O’Brien, John Moroney, Brendan Gleeson, William O’Brien, Dermot Molloy. Subs: Darren Boland, Ciarán Mockler, Tommy Hayes, and Neil Gleeson. With games remaining against Ballingarry and Clonmel Commercials we still have a very good opportunity to make the knock out stages of the South Junior Football.

This Saturday our Junior Hurlers play Ballylooby/Castlegrace at 7.15pm in Ned Hall Park, Clonmel.
