After the long winter break football competitions for 2016 finally kicked off at the weekend with our senior and junior reserve teams in action. Our senior reserve team travelled to Colmcille and after a titanic struggle came out on the right side of a 1-11 to 3-6 score line. Our reserve 3 team kicked off their campaign with a home fixture against St Columba’s and also emerged victorious on a score of 3-18 to 5 points. Well done to both teams.
This coming weekend our senior reserve team are at home to Mostrim on Friday evening at 8p.m.
