Elphin Ballinameen Underage Round-up

The U16 team qualified for the Division 3 Final with a good 6-16 to 2-8 win over Tulsk, on Thursday evening in Tarmonbarry. While the win was based on a good team performance the scoring exploits of captain John Finnerty cannot be overlooked who amassed a total of 4-10 on the night, with 4-5 from play. The Final, against Western Gaels, is on Saturday at 1pm in Tulsk.

The U12 Division 1 team have also reached a Final after winning all of their games in the Summer League. Details are TBC.

The U14’s will play St Brigids in the Division 2 Final in Lisnamult on Tuesday 22nd Oct at 7.30 pm.

Well done to all the teams for getting through to County Finals. Best of luck to you all and we hope to have lots more silverware before the year is out. Please come and support the lads.
