Another unlucky result for the U-11 boys but the lads are moving in the right direction. Hopefully their first win is not far away. The Boys put in a very spirited performance in windy conditions but went down 6-4 against Wexford Celtic. This was the boys best performance of the season and the result could have gone either way with the wind playing a big factor. A man of the match performance by Blacks keeper Jack Doyle who was simply superb making numerous saves including stopping a penalty. Scorers for

The Blacks were: Sean Carley, Chris O Connor, James Cleary and Jason Devereaux with Cealan Ward captaining the side. Hard luck to our U10 girls this morning who lost 2-0 at home to Gorey. Great improvement from their last game was evident, so keep working hard girls! Well done to our U-14 girls who won 4-1 away against Cloughbawn.

Unfortunately not a good day for the U14 boys. With a couple of regulars out nursing injuries and one or two others missing, the boys went down 5 - 1 at home to St. Cormac's.

There are better things to come from these boys in what is a tough division. Well done to the Junior Ladies who drew 1 - 1 at home to New Ross Town, in awful weather conditions.
