Bad Weekend For The Club
It was a bad weekend overall for both Junior sides as the A team went down 2-0 to St Michaels in Cooke Park on Sunday afternoon. Town conceded two goals early on and failed to recover from that setback. St Michaels also had the cushion of a missed penalty and Town had appeals of their own when a defender was adjudged to have handled on the line but it was waved away by the referee to the amazement of the Town players which resulted in two sendings off, one on and off the field for Town. The B team were also defeated 3-1 by Moyglass in the League, no report from that game at the time of writing.

It was a great weekend for the club which began on Saturday when the Youths defeated Cahir Park by two goals to nil with first half strikes from Sean Browne and Jack Kennedy. The B team beat Killenaule Rovers convincingly 7-0 with a hatrick from Shane Fagan, a double from Paudie Whelan and one each from Mark O'Reilly and Conor Davin Murphy. Finally The A team put together back to back wins in the Premier League with a 1-0 Derby win over Wilderness Rovers thanks to a winner from Tony Scully. Well done to all
