Juveniles Notes 
Juniors & U8s 
Training Saturday from 11:00
U10's have a challenge this Thursday against Kilkerley in Kilkerley at 19.00. Players asked to be there at 18.45. Training on Saturday at 11.00.
U12s Our u-12s A team lost out to the old enemy in a rain soaked Donaghmoyne on Saturday. It certainly lived up to past games throughout the years in what could only be described as a fiery contest throughout.
We left our shooting boots at home and lost out on the day by a few points.
Training resumes on Thursday as usual at 7pm.
U12 Team B played Truagh on Saturday away. Weather conditions left football difficult but the lads started strong and took the lead. Truagh eventually took control of game with our lads running out of steam as panel was small with no subs available. All players put in a great effort with Paul Hoey doing well in goals with some great kick outs, Eoghan McArdle in the backs kept his man quiet and Owen Hand was a thorn in side of the Truagh defence up front. The lads are back to training on Thursday and Saturday in preparation for next game in two weeks. Hopefully we will have a full squad.
U14s Training Tuesday evening 7:15-8-30
We have feilla trials on this Saturday 3rd June in Cloghan time to be confirmed, 
U16 Played against Aughnamullen last Thursday evening, lads were in control of the game for the start with some super scores. They continued in the second half we're they left off in the first. With subs coming on and playing their part. Final score inniskeen 5-24 Aughnamullen 1-6. Keep the hard work up lads. There is no games next week due to exams. Best of luck to everyone who is doing exams.
