FL Div 5 Round 1 St Patricks 1-5 Fenagh 0-13

posted 31 Mar 2017, 01:04 by PRO St Pats,Tullow,Carlow

Played in Bro. Leo Park on Thurs 30/3/17 on a wet night this game was tough for the home side from the start when manager Mick Hade had to tog out to fill the team (he played well too!)

The visitors lead 6-3 at the break with the Tullow lads struggling to convert possession into scores, the three points we got were very good, with two fine points from Stephen Nolan and Robert Byrne (both of whom along with Conor Murphy and Davy Tobin played the Div 3 game against Fenagh on Tuesday night too!)

Sid Hogan and another Kenny free the second half kept us in touch until with 12 minutes to go Davy Tobin brought the sides level with a goal at the near post from a tight angle but the Tullow side did not score again as the visitors hit the last 5 points of the game. There are some great footballers here and hopefully with a few extra faces next week we can try get on our way to retaining the Div 5 league title that we won in 2016.

The club hopes to see all players, girlfriends, family and friends over to support our last main fundraiser for the year on Sat night in the Seven Oaks Hotel for our fight night “Battle of the Border” v Coolkenno GAA Club. Tickets €15 and there are only a few left!

Team; Jeremy Berry, Blain Cosgrove, Derry Nolan, Gary Maxwell, Stephen Hogan (0-1), Conor Murphy, Paul Sheppard, Stephen Nolan(0-1), Gareth Fitzgerald, David Tobin (1-0), Brian Kenny (0-2), Robert Byrne (0-1), Mick Hade, Nathan Doran, Noel Goss.
