Na Fianna GAA Football Club Notes 19th July

Na Fianna U16 Footballers championship game against St Broughans was not able to go ahead last Monday week as no ref turned up to take charge and will be re-fixed for another date.

Na Fianna Minor Footballers cruised to an easy win as they totally outclassed a very poor Clara side in their Championship encounter in Clara last Wednesday evening on a scoreline of 4-15 to 0-03. The first half was completely one way traffic and by half time Na Fianna had raced into a lead of 2-08 to no score with the goals coming first in the 6th minute when David Jordan won a kickout and sent it into Jack Keogh on the edge of the square who laid it off to Jason Darby to blast it to the net, the second goal coming in the 18th min from a penalty when Ben Ridgeway was brought down by the keeper and coolly dispatched to the net by Dean Cahill. Clara did manage to get off the mark with 2 points early in the second half but Na Fianna just increased their lead firstly with 6 points before dispatching their 3rd goal midway through the half when Ronan Crombie sent in the ball from the wing to Gary Martin who turned and shot low to net. Both sides then added another point before Jack Keogh was rewarded for his hard work when he fired in Na Fianna’s 4th goal in the final minute to wrap up the win.
NA FIANNA: Adam Kinahan, James Garry, Declan Byrne, Ben Ridgeway, Brian Crombie (0-01), Mikey Keogh, David Jordan (0-01), Liam Guinan, Gavin Ridgeway, Gary Martin (1-02), Niall Dempsey (0-01), Dean Cahill (1-03), Jason Darby (1-02), Jack Keogh (1-01), Richie Reynolds (0-03).
SUBS: Dean Pierce (for Brian Crombie), Aaron Dwane (for Liam Guinan), Eric Martin (for Gary Martin), Eric Dolan  (0-01) (for Niall Dempsey), Ronan Crombie (for Dean Cahill)

Na Fianna U14 Footballers were given a walkover by St Broughans in their Championship encounter last Friday evening in Geashill as St Broughans were unable to field a full team. The sides then played a challenge game instead which Na Fianna won comprehensively on a scoreline of 8-19 to 0-14.
NA FIANNA: James Boland, Colm Corcoran, David Buckley, Adam Kelly, Ray Daly, Colin MCDermott, Sean Rigney, Clint Horan, Robert Milner, John Tobin, Liam Langton, Stephen Pierce, Dylan Hyland, Kevin Kinahan, Jack O’Brien.
SUBS USED: Conor O’Meara, John Ridgeway, Gavin Murphy, Colin Keogh, Nathan Valentine.

Na Fianna U16 Footballers continue their Championship campaign next Monday (25th July) @ 7:30pm as they take on Edenderry in Geashill. All support would be appreciated.

Na Fianna GAA Football Club would like to extend deepest and sincere sympathy to the family and wide circle of friends of the late Barry Lee, Ballydownan, Geashill following his tragic bereavement last weekend. Rest in Peace.
