ACFL Division 1 

We were beaten on an official score-line of 0-11 to 0-10 against Mostrim in the senior league on Saturday evening last. This was particularly disappointing given that there was a couple of clear, vital decisions that went against us in the second half where the umpiring left a lot to be desired. Firstly, there was a Mostrim wide which was given as a point and in the closing stages Martin Cassidy kicked a wonderful point which was well inside the post and to the bemusement of all on both sides, the umpire incredibly waved it wide. As a club all you look for is fair play and we did not get that. Given the amount of time our players and officials dedicate to our games it is simply not good enough. The team and scorers were as follows: 

Aiden Gray, Paul McGee, Cian Brady, Stephen Cosgrave, Mark Hughes (0-1), Gary Connell, JP Farley, Emmet Noonan, Sean Whelan, Mark Breslin, Conor Keenan (0-2), Jamie Nertney, Dean Cosgrave, Pauric Gill, Martin Cassidy (0-7, 4f) 

Subs used: Kaelum Gill, Liam Lynch, Podge Gill 

This concludes the first batch of senior league games until the conclusion of the Tailteann Cup. Our Division 4 team play Dromard in Dromard this Friday, May 27th at 8pm, best of luck to the team and management.
