It was a case of best till last for our club teams this week, with our amalgamated GSTM U.17 Lads produced a gritty determined display to defeat St John’s on a 4.09 to 3.09 final score line on Sunday evening last.

Played in Stenson Park, in nice sunshine, our lads who are usually slow to start, had a goal chance in the first minute but were denied by a fine save form our opponents keeper. The first of a hat trick of goals in the first half from Diarmuid and a point from the same man saw our lads lead at the first half water break by 1.01 to 0.02.

Playing into a slight breeze in the first half, our lads produced some fine passages of play, points from play from Dara, Kyle and Lee kept the scoreboard ticking, some good defending from Culann, Conor and Darragh in goals meant our lads kept a first half clean sheet for the first time in a while.

Two further goals from the inform Diarmuid, after good play from Shane and John, saw our lads lead at the half time whistle by nine points (3.04 to 0.04).

Our midfielder Cathal gained possession from the 2nd half throw in and a slick move involving Darragh and Shane, resulted in John Corcoran kicking a fine long range point, this was the start our hard working crew needed.

John’s hit a purple patch early in that 2nd half as they were bound to do and kicked 2.03 without reply to leave our lads needed a score to settle their nerves, these duly arrived form County U.17 Connacht Championship winning captain Kyle, he kicked two long range frees to bring the score to 3.07 to 2.07 in our lads favour.

Our fourth and decisive goal arrived shortly afterwards from the hard working mid fielder, Cathal Keaney who punched the ball to the net after an initial save from the John’s keeper, John’s produced another late flurry as were rewarded with a goal and two points, before the final score o the game arrived, a point from wing forward Dara to leave our lads on the right side of a 4.09 TO 3.09 SCORELINE.

Great credit to this dedicated bunch who despite defeats in the league during the season have always shown for training and challenge games. They can now look forward to a final date with naomh Molaise Gaels shortly.

Our U.16 Girls were beaten by Owenmore Gaels in the championship final on Friday last. Despite the fact that our girls led for long periods of this game, a late goal from our opponents proved vital, our girls losing out by four points in the end.

Thanks to Gusclad for providing some nourishment from our girls after the game.


Our senior lads face Tubbercurry in the Senior Relegation Final, after a two-point defeat to Calry /St Joseph’s on Sunday last. Despite leading for long periods of this game, a goal from Calry in the 2nd half proved the decisive score of the game.
