On Saturday June 2nd the team had a very enjoyable day out paintballing at Combat Zone in Ballyhahill with 19 out of 21 on the squad attending. Though it was a large group, every one of the lads was well behaved both to and from the venue on the bus, followed all instructions given by the instructors at the venue and were good reps for Ballingarry FC. A great day for all was rounded off at the clubhouse where they took a team photo and presented some awards.

It would be unfair to single out anyone player for their performance, suffice to say that all girls were magnificent on the night and thoroughly deserving of the success.

U16 Cup Final – Abbeyfeale United 1 Ballingarry 0
Ballingarry were unlucky to lost the 16s cup final in Woodfields on Sunday as Abbeyfeale United won a tight game by the only goal. Ballingarry had chances to score both before and after the winning goal with Michael Southgate unlucky. It was always going to be a low scoring game and unfortunately from a Ballingarry point of view it was United who got the all important winner with fifteen minutes remaining.
U14 Girls Division 1 – Abbeyfeale United 2 Ballingarry 2 (Walsh 2)
This draw means that both teams will have to meet again to decide the title destination in a playoff as both have finished level on points. Siobhra Walsh gave Ballingarry the lead twice only for United to come back on both occasions. Her first was direct from a corner in the first half with Abbeyfeale equalising on the stroke of half time. Her second from a free just after the restart was cancelled form the spot midway through the second half. Although Abbeyfeale had the better of the second half Ballingarry rode their luck and can look forward to the winner takes all confrontation on Wednesday next in Woodfields.
