Our reserve junior team got the season off to a fine start at the weekend with a good win over Longford Slashers on a score of 2-9 t 1-3. Hopefully this will set the trend for the year to come. This coming weekend our senior team kick off the league with a game against Granard. Please see fixtures section for time and date.
Hard luck to the Longford senior team following their agonizing last gasp defeat on Sunday. While it was a disappointing way to end the competition, there were certainly a lot of positives to take from the league campaign.
