St. John's GAA Club notes

Family Fun Sports Day 2017

The St Johns club wishes to express a huge thank you to the many sponsors who contributed so generously to help make this Garland Sunday such a successful event in Stenson Park. Without your valuable assistance this wonderful community event would not have been possible. A big thank you is also due to chief organiser Fergal Kelly and his team of volunteers who organised this great event.

Under 14 Championship

Our K & D Developments-sponsored Under 14 team suffered a second defeat in the U14 B Championship when an understrength team were defeated by Calry-St Josephs in Stenson Park by 4-11 to1-10. The next game in this competition is away to Easkey on Friday Aug 18th.

Under 12 Boys

Our U.12 team travel to Kilcoyne Park, Tubbercurry to take on the Tubbercurry-Cloonacool in the semi final of the Shield Competition on Tuesday August 8th at 7pm. Our U12 boys played a very useful challenge game against Boyle in Cuilbeg last week and came out on top on a 0-16 to 0-9 scoreline after an impressive second half performance.

Intermediate Championship

On Sat next Aug 12 our senior team begin their campaign in the Intermediate championship when they travel out West to St Brendan’s Park, Castleconnor to take on Enniscrone-Kilglass in Round 1 of a 3 team group – St Patricks are the third team. Enniscrone-Kilglass go into the game fresh from their success in the Div 3 League final but if our lads show some of the good play they are capable of then they should be well in the game. Team manager Dara Mc Garty and his selectors will be hopeful that some of the players who have been injured will be able to return to strengthen the team. We wish them good luck on Saturday.
