The Elphin-Ballinameen U-14s had a comprehensive win over Castlerea in the League on Thursday.

The U-12s were defeated by Strokestown on a scoreline of 3-6 to 5-12 in the Spring League on Saturday. The game was level with 8 minutes to go and Strokestown eventually took control. Henry Dowd was outstanding, ably assisted by Darragh Callaghan, Darragh Gilligan, John Finnerty, Dylan Scott, Sam and Jude O’Rourke, Colin McGrath and Daniel Christie. Coaching continues tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30pm

Under 10 Coaching continues on Saturday at 10am.

Despite the weather conditions there was an excellent turnout by the Elphin-Ballinameen teams for the first U-8 Go Games Blitz in Strokestown. We had two teams on the day and they both played games against Castlerea, Éire Óg and Strokestown, with all the players putting in fantastic performances. Thank you to Strokestown for putting on refreshments afterwards and to all the parents who brought their children to the event. Coaching resumes on Saturday at 10am.

Well done

Congratulations to Lauren Shanagher and the Roscommon U-14 Ladies on their win in the Connacht B Final.
