No county league this weekend as we have a break until we welcome John Mitchels to Strand Road in round 5 next week. We lie one point ahead of Mitchels in the league table ( 5 vs 4) with Mitchels having drawn two of their four games to date ( vs St Marys and Templenoe) beating Dingle with their only loss being to Beaufort. For our part, losing to Legion last weekend saw us taste defeat for the first time in the current competition so the lads will be anxious to resume winning ways and maintain their place in the group. A close encounter is anticipated and given its a local derby, the game could go either way. Throw in on Sat evening will be at 17.00
Our B team return to action next weekend when Kilgarvan come to Strand Road on Sunday afternoon where throw in is @14.00 . Our form has been patchy to date but the recent displays against Churchill and Asdee were encouraging so another good display is hoped for.
We had our first outing in this competition on Friday night last when going under to Cordal on a final score line of 1-15 to 1-11. This was a game where we were competitive throughout and with a bit of luck could have come away with the spoils.
Team: Cillian Moran, Gavin Ryan, Kieran Mangan, Keith Brosnan, Aidan Mangan, Jason O’Leary, Anthony O’Connor, Thomas McGrath, Shane O’Sullivan, Gearóid Hartnett, Rory Molloy, Donagh O’Brien, Shane Flavin, James O’Connor, Ken Savage.
