Our Annual Club Lotto memberships are due for renewal at the end of March so each member by now should have received their renewal packs in the past week so we would hope for each and every member’s continued support for the coming year. It is the main income generator on an annual basis for our club and we believe its a good value membership that gets you 3 chances to win each and every week. Your local lotto club rep will be calling to each member over the next couple of weeks to discuss further.

Men’s Football
Junior Team
The Junior team recorded their 2nd win in the Div 3 league against Kilglass Gaels in Frenchpark on Saturday evening last. Kilglass Gaels made the brighter start to the game and were 3 pts up before Western Gaels registered their opening score. Western Gaels then got a foothold in the game and built a 7pts to 4 lead just before half time when Kilglass Gaels were awarded and dispatched a penalty to level the game. Kilglass Gaels then scored their 2nd goal early in the 2nd half to open up a 3pt lead. Western Gaels kept battling away and got a lucky goal with 5 mins remaining to retake the lead. We secured the win with a late point and had to weather some pressure around our goalmouth in injury time but we secured the win and the 2pts. Final scoreline of 1-12 to 2-07.
Team: A Hardiman, J Brady, A Freyne, J Devine, T Devine, S Conry, O Ward(0-3), N Murray(0-1), J Duffy(0-2, 1f), C Casserley, Niall Higgins(0-2, 1f), S Carroll, C Sampey(0-4), S Carroll, Noel Higgins(1-0).
Sub: D McGarry, D Ryan.
Thanks to all who came out and supported the team on the day. We wish Michael McCormack from Kilglass Gaels a speedy recovery from his injury sustained during the game.
