We kicked ff competitive action for 2017 with a very narrow victory at home over Carrickedmond in the Bertie Allen Cup on Friday evening last. A late Jamie King goal saw us emerge victorious on a score line of 1-8 to 9 points. This weekend we are at home to Mostrim in the same competition on Friday evening at 8.30pm.
Hard luck to the Longford senior team on their narrow defeat to Laois in Portlaoise on Saturday evening. O Moore Park has certainly become bogey pitch for Longford over the years.
