Our u12 boys began their u12 league program in the go-games competition with a great performance against Athy on Thursday night.

The lads have only returned to training in recent weeks and already a very good skillful bunch of players are starting to form.

Our Senior kept their promising league form going on Saturday evening when they travelled to Rathcoffey and came away with the points on a scoreline of Ballykelly 1-8 Rathcoffey 1-8.

Training has been going well for the lads since they started back in early jan and this is being reflected in their performances to date. Well done lads.Our Senior ladies began their Division 2 league program on Tuesday evening with a defeat at home to a strong Carbury side.

The girls are working hard on the training fields and will be hoping to get back on track in the coming weeks.

Underage training has returned to the club.
