Munster Junior Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 4 (OG, Healy, Ahern, Forde) Shannonside 0
Ballingarry bossed the game from the off but still had to rely on an own goal to set the ball rolling after seeing several early chances go a begging. Aherns half volley proved too hot for then visiting keeper to handle as the ball went over the line before Pa Healy ran on to a defence splitting pass to drive the ball to the net. All this before the break.
The second half showed little change in pattern with Kevin Fordes fourth in two games giving Ballingarry their fourth in this game. Pa Gallagher almost crowned his debut with a goal but shot over while another substitute Marcus Moore struck the post.

U17 Cup Quarter Final – Ballingarry 1 (Hayes) Broadford Utd 2
Two early Broadford goals decided this U17 cup game in Ballingarry. Mark Hayes direct free kick from inside the box gave Ballingarry a purpose in the second half. However second half domination yielded no reward with two one on ones producing nothing while the crossbar also denied Ballingarry a second. A good penalty shout also went unheeded.

Sunday October 1st

FAI Junior Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 3 (Forde 3) Bridge Utd (CDSL) 0
Kevin Forde’s introduction as a first half substitute for the injured Mark Hayes proved a master stroke. Barely on the pitch two minutes had he put Ballingarry ahead when he pounced after the keeper dropped the ball. Forde’s second followed soon afterwards when a sublime pass from Francis Kiely left the visiting defence stranded and Forde rounded the centre half and keeper to roll the ball to the net. His third club hat-trick was completed in glorious fashion when he chipped the keeper from the edge of the box on the stroke of half time to give Ballingarry an unassailable lead.
Bridge did show impressive effort early in the second half but it was to no avail as Ballingarry ran out comfortable winners in the end.
Team: Kenrick, N Cahill, Fitzgerald, Ahern, Healy, Kiely, Hartnett, Clancy, Hayes, Smith, S O’Connor
Used Subs: Forde, A O’Connor, Moore, P Ryan.

Ladies Premier Division – Ballingarry 0 Charleville 2

Mid West U12 Girls Competition.
Ballingarry 4 (Clancy 2, K O’Connor, Twomey) Coole 0 (CDSL)
Ballingarry 2 (Twomey, R O’Connor) Holycross (NTSL) 0
Ballingarry 0 Cashel (STSL) 1
Ballingarry 3 (Clancy 2, Kenny) Ashling/Annacotty (LDSL) 0
The U12 shield winners from last season just missed out on a fourth successive visit to Dublin for the All Ireland U12 blitz finals when they finished second in the group behind Cashel of Tipperary. The girls were tremendous throughout their four games losing just once and conceding just the one goal. Surely their reward on the day didn’t justify their efforts. As it was the goal that ended their chances arrived five minutes from time in their game against the table toppers.

U10 Girls – Ballingarry 4 Kildimo Utd 2
A fine performance from the girls saw them win an exciting game.

U12 Boys Division 6 – Kilcolman Rovers B 2 Ballingarry B 1 (Daly)
The clubs B team travelled to Ardagh to face Kilcolman Rovers in their second league game. They started brightly with plenty possession but conceded an early goal against the run of play. Ben Dalys long range effort drew Ballingarry level. A second Kilcolman goal saw them go in at the break ahead. Ballingarry were superb through the second half but were unable to get a deserved equaliser.

U13 Boys National Cup Round 1 – Bridge Celtic 5 Ballingarry 0
Unfortunately an under par performance form Ballingarry in Clare saw the home side run out comfortable winners. Ballingarry did have some good passage of play but not enough to trouble the oppositions defence. On a positive note the lads never gave up and created a few chances at the end to grab a consolation.

U14 Girls Division 1 – Ballingarry AFC 7 (McNamara 3, Walsh, Hayes 2, O’Keeffe) Newcastle West Town 1
A strong breeze probably contained Ballingarry and prevented more goals for the girls as they easily overcame the visitors in a one sided affair.

U15 Boys National Cup Round 2 – Killarney Athletic 1 Ballingarry 2 (Geary 2)
Two goals from David Geary saw Ballingarry secure a fine success in Killarney with a journey to either Kilmallock or Annacotty the reward in round three of the National cup.

U14 Boys National Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 2 (Moran, E O’Connor) Carew Park 1
Ballingarry were simply superb throughout and nothing less than a win would have been justice. While going a down before the break against the run of play they showed tremendous character to bounce back in the second half with two beautifully worked goals from first Enda Moran and then the winner from Eoin O’Connor. They will now travel to Charleville for their second round tie.

Premier Division – Ballingarry 4 (Fitzgerald, Hayes, Quaid, A O’Connor) Carrig Celtic 1

A fine display from Ballingarry saw them maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Brian Fitzgeralds volleyed goal after 10 minutes from Herlihys corner set the tone with the visiting keeper making a fine save to keep the deficit at the minimum for the break. Once Mark Hayes got their second early in the second half it was points secured. Carrig pulled one back before Tony Quaids first goal for the club restored the two goal cushion before Aaron O’Connor sealed the win in the closing stages.
Team: Kenrick, Healy, Herlihy, Fitzgerald, O Grady, Kiely, Clancy, Hayes, Quaid, Hartnett, S O’Connor.
Subs: A O’Connor, Walsh, Ahern, Ryan.
