Congratulations to the Wexford 60 by 30 Under 12/13 and 16/17 teams who both won their Leinster Finals, held at Na Fianna, Dublin last weekend.

The Under 12/13 team, who had a tough win over Kilkenny in the semi-final, had Meath as their opponents in the final. Two Bridgetown players were on the team, Kevin Shannon and Stevie Lawlor, along with Seamus Sinnott from St Martins and three from Castlebridge.

Kevin and his Castlebridge partner got Wexford off to a flier winning their games easily. The next pair in also won leaving Stevie and Seamus comfortably ahead in the final game.

Bridgetown had Brian Busher on the U16/17 team and he played his part in another comfortable win, this time against Dublin. Both teams now advance to the All Ireland semi-finals.

Our mens team reached the final of the County Special Junior B Competition recently, only to go down to Ballymitty's A team in the Final. Micheal Busher had a ding dong battle in the opening game only to lose out by a few aces.

Eamon Codd and PJ Martin shared the spoils in the doubles which left Padraig Rowe with an uphill task in the final singles game. He gave it everything going down by the narrowest of margins 21-20, leaving Ballymitty as winners. It is great to see the adult members progressing to finals and it augurs well for the years ahead.


The U-10s kicked off their season with a well earned 1-0 over Bridge Rovers. Diarmuid Cooney was the goal scoring hero in a game where every one tried hard.

The luck was not with the under 14s who deserved something from their game away to shelbourne. Jake Furlong scored in the 2-1 defeat. The youths scored 3 for the second week running but yet again lost out as Park Hotspur hit 7.

The men kept up their unbeaten start to the season beating stoney 3-1 goals from Aaron Goff Mark Doyle and paul Murphy on his first competitive start ensured victory in a game where goalie Jimmy Benson made some smart saves.

For second week running the reserves scored 3 in their 3-3 draw with Rosslare port. Finally best of luck to all our young members and their team mates in the girls u-12 co. football final this saturday.


Well done to the Kilmore U12 Girls who beat the Martins in the County Semi Finals last Wednesday. Scoring 1-11 to 2 points, the girls were well supported in Kilmore.
