Underage Boys Football
Our minor’s travelled to Enfield on Friday knowing that if they won or drew against St Croan’s they would be in the final. Kilbride played well in patches but despite being level with five minutes remaining St Croan’s finished the stronger with three un-answered points to take the spoils.
Full time score St Croan’s 2-14 Kilbride 2-11.
Team – R Cunningham; D Garvey; J Feerick; A Looby, 0-01; R Biesty, 1-00; R Murray; D O’Neill, 0-01; C Shanagher, 0-01; K Neary; S Hanly, 1-01; A Shanagher; K Battles, 0-06, 2 frees; D O’Connor, 0-01; Subs J O’Connor for Feerick.
All is not lost however and the lads will at the very least contest a semi-final.
Well done to our U16 boys who have made the division 3 final after St Brigid’s conceded the semi-final.
Our U14 boys travelled to Ballyleague on Saturday to take part in the the Paddy Bolger Memorial Tournament. They recorded wins against the hosts and St Barry/Kilglass but lost out to Oran and Granard. Thanks to St Faithleach’s for the invitation and their hospitality.
They (Under 14s) are due to play St Faithleachs in the Division 3 semi-final on Saturday at a venue and time that has yet to be decided.
Our U12 boys will contest two finals on Saturday weeks. They will take on Elphin/Ballinameen in the Division 2 & Division 6 deciders.
Under 14 Ladies bow out of Championship
Our U 14 girls bowed out of the championship when they were defeated by St. Barrys in Kilbride on Friday evening. Two of our regular starters Aisling Hanly and Alexandra Gigon were unable to play due to injury. Then we were dealt further blows with the withdrawal of Aoife Leonard with an ankle injury and then Ellen O Beirne had to come off for a substantial amount of time with a bad nose bleed having been hit by the ball . Despite a trojan effort by the rest of the team they were beaten on a scoreline of 5-09 to 2-09 . We would like to wish Aisling , Alexandra , Aoife and Ellen speedy recoveries from their injuries and thank all the players for their commitment over the last few months and to their parents for supporting them and bringing the girls to training and matches. A huge thank you also to their management team Johnny , Cole, Alice , Rochelle and Joan for all the time and effort put in with this group of players .
Team : Rachel Hoare , Etain Kelly , Sarah McTiernan , Karina Leonard , Julia Garvey, Aoife Leonard , Saoirse Murray , Ellen O Beirne , Robyn Dowling , Ellen Tully(0-01) , Leah Fallon (1-04), Jolene O Reilly, Ashling Cronin,, Aine Biesty(1-01) Amy Shanagher(0-03).

Best wishes Aisling
The club would like to wish Aisling Hanly the very best of luck next Sunday in Croke Park when she will play in the INTO/GAA Cumann na mBunscol Respect Exhibition Go Games match at half time of the All Ireland final. This is a wonderful achievement for Aisling and is very much deserved as she is an extremely talented young player. Aisling was born deaf but was fitted with a cochlear implant at a young age which makes her achievement all the more special. This will be a very special occasion for her proud parents Cole and Liz and her brothers and sister. Have a fabulous time Aisling from all here in Kilbride ladies club !
The club would like to sincerely thank all those who supported our cake sale and coffee morning on Sunday. It was a great success and brought in such much needed funds for our ladies club.
