Minors end with convincing win

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

CONGRATULATIONS to Down Senior footballers on a fantastic win over Monaghan in the Athletic Grounds on Saturday night, in particular our own four panellists Michael, Coly, Sean and Rory.

This week we wish Cara, Aoife and Catriona good luck in the ladies football Ulster final on Friday night in Clonmore at 7.30pm.

Also our U10 girls Alanna, Aine and Alisha who will play at half time.

Good luck girls! Thanks to all those who supported our Big Breakfast on Sunday morning past. We had a great turnout and raised 520 for our juvenile teams.

Thanks to chef Jimmy Kennedy and to Noreen and all the girls who helped out. Food was fantastic and a great atmosphere about the place especially after a great performance from Down on Saturday night.

It was great to have many of our county footballers and camogs in attendance.

The second club draw is this Saturday night in the clubrooms, with live entertainment. Please have your ticket returns in early. Thank you for your continued support and good luck! Castlewellan minors ended the first round of minor fixtures with a convincing 5-23 to 1-11 victory over Saul. That made it six wins from eight matches.

The lads played their best football of the season playing as a team and moving the ball first time at every opportunity.

Best for the Town were Oisin O'Toole, Matt Muldoon, Johnny McVeigh, Eoin Maginn and Eoin Travers who had a personal tally of 1-13 all from play.

The focus for the panel is now on the championship campaign where they hope to give it a good run and bring some silverware back to the club.

The senior footballers were beaten by Kilcoo on Friday night in Newcastle with the final score Castlewellan 0-7 Kilcoo 0-16. Next game away to Mayobridge this Friday night 7.30pm.

Castlewellan U12s came away with a great two-point victory against a well-drilled Loughinisland team on Sunday.

Scorers were: Conor McVeigh 1-2, Ryan McKibben 1-2, Casey Llewellyn 1-0, Ronan Houston 1-0, Eoin-Pol Hillen 1-0, Emmet Hillen 1- 0, Sean O'Neill 0-2, Darragh Cluskey 0-2, Conor Milligan 0-1.

This Saturday (1 July) will be the last Saturday morning coaching session before the summer break.

Thanks to all the children, coaches and parents for your support over the last few months. We will resume again on Saturday, 29 July.

Our U8 and U10 camogs went to Portaferry on Saturday and enjoyed a fantastic day.

There were some great skills on show and the children are really coming on after some good coaching.

Some fine striking and blocking from all the teams and some Fantastic points and goals. Maith Sibh go leir.

Our year 6 (P5 & P6) footballers travelled to Ardglass on Saturday morning to take part in an East Down Super Blitz.

We were able to field two teams and the boys performed brilliantly in all of their games.

The Castlewellan Gaels team was narrowly beaten by St Paul's in the shield semi-final.

Our U8 footballers had a blitz at home in St Malachy's Park on Saturday morning, we were also able to field two teams with all of the boys getting plenty of football. Well done b oy s ! This week's lotto numbers were 7, 12, 14 and 26. Next week's jackpot is 4,850.
