The junior footballers defeated Naas on a score line of 2-08 to 2-07 to increase their unbeaten run to seven games last Monday. This was a battling performance from the lads who had trailed by 3 points mid way through the second half. Two second half goals from Nathan Fitzharris and Ciaran Behan aided the team’s recovery. On a night when there was many excellent performances, Franklin Aghboola, Kevin Crowe and Donal O’Kelly all worked extremely hard.

The U12 footballers had a good away win at Carbury a great team display from all concerned, while the U14’s lost at home to Leixlip and away to Confey despite sterling efforts by a much under strength side they will play Round Towers and Eadestown in the upcoming week.
