Our Junior Footballers opened their West Championship campaign at Sean Treacy Park on Saturday evening last but had to settle for the runners up slot as Rosegreen ran out fairly comprehensive winners.

Just five points adrift and well in contention at the interval 1-9 to 1-4 with first half scores by Eoin Riordan (1-0) and points each by Phillip Doherty, Pat Russell, Alan Riordan and Declan Riordan, we failed to make any impact in the second half adding two further points through Alan Riordan and Christopher Hadnett.

Final score: Rosegreen 2-16 Sologhead 1-6

Next up is Arravale Rovers this Saturday evening, July 14, in Annacarty, throw in 7.30pm.
