Sympathy to Margaret Nisbet Moortown on the death of her father recently. ALL BLACKS AFC

Last Saturday saw a very busy morning at Casey Park. First up were the U6 Boys who played Rosslare Strand and came away 6 - 1 winners. Then we had the U9 boys who, again facing Rosslare Strand, gave us great entertainment in a 10 goal thriller. Despite the good performance, The Blacks were to lose out 6 - 4 to our near neighbours.

The U12 boys then played Shamrock Rovers in a fiercely contested match and were to lose on a 1-0 scoreline. The All Blacks were unlucky not to get something from the game as some fine goalkeeping from the Shamrocks keeper ensured the home team would not get the break they deserved.

Next up were the U12 girls who ran out 2 - 0 winners against Seaview. Last up on the day were the U16 girls against Ballindaggin. Despite an improved performance, the girls were unable to hold on with the visitors taking all 3 points GUILLEMOT GOLF SOCIETY

The inaugural County Wexford 1 Wall Championships took place over the weekend in St Josephs. It is a great game to play and to watch and one that is really taking off all over Ireland and beyond. Pride of place went to Laura-Anne Furlong who took the Women's Open title with a great win over Lorraine Maddock from Piercestown. Well done Laura-Anne. Stevie Lawlor also did well, reaching the Final of the U14 event, only to lose out to Oisin Foley from Castlebridge.

Laura-Anne also got off to a good start in the 40 by 20 Winter League by beating Lorraine last Friday. We also have a number of players taking part in both the Boys U14 and Mens Winter League competitions. There have been a couple of all Bridgetown clashes already with Kevin Shannon, Stevie Lawlor and Ryan Bates coming out on top against Ciaran Busher, Paddy Scallan and Richard Martin Senior respectively. We wish Aaron Wright Power a speedy recovery from torn ligaments he picked up playing rugby recently.

Micheal Busher did very well in the All Ireland Colleges singles 60 by 30 championships, just losing out at the semi-final stage to the current All Ireland Minor title holder Martin Mulkerrins from Galway in a tie break. Micheal had earlier taken a great scalp beating Peter Hughes from Ballyhoge, also in a tie break, in the quarter final. That brings down the curtain on the 60 by 30 season until next May. KILMORE UNITED

The men continued their great start in Division 1 last Sunday with a 5-2 win over Duncannon. A Paul Murphy hat-trick either side of goals from Devin Furlong & Shane Cassidy ensured their promising start continued. The ladies who had began life with 2 wins in Division 1 had a poor day at the office, tamely going down 4-0 against Enniscorthy Town.
