Junior Team:
The Junior team were defeated in the final of the Div 3 League Tansey cup final on Saturday afternoon last in Athleague. Western Gaels started the brighter and had much of the play in the opening half with 2 well taken goals giving them a half time lead of 2-02 to 0-04. Creggs to their credit kept battling in the 2nd half and narrowed the gap with some well taken points but were still 2 pts down in the 59 minute but them they got the all important goal which left them in front. Western Gaels tried very hard in the remaining minutes of injury time to get a equalizing score but we came up short by the narrowest of margins. Final scoreline: Western Gaels B 2-06 Creggs 1-10.

Congratulations to Creggs on their win and it definitely showed that the 2 best teams throughout the league played each other in the final. Commiserations to our lads but they have showed great consistency of effort and performance throughout the league where they went undefeated throughout the campaign up to Saturday’s final. We will play in Div 2 O Gara cup football for 2017 so another big effort is required from the full group to maintain the standards set by this team during 2016. Thanks to all the team and management for their work and commitment throughout 2016.
