Premier Division – Ballingarry 2 (Forde 2) Broadford United 3
Both under 10 teams kicked off their season and while the A team recorded a fine 7-0 win in Athea where Kieron Storin bagged four, the B team fell at home to Creeves. The 14s also got their season underway with a 2-2 draw against visitors Creeves. A cracking game saw Ballingarry come from behind twice through Mikey Hickey from a free and Aaron Smith to seal a well deserved draw.
On Sunday the A team lost at home to Broadford United where Shane Doherty missed a last minute penalty that would have secured a point. Kevin Forde was the Ballingarry scorer with both goals. Team: Kenrick; C. Doherty; Fitzgerald; O’Grady; Condron; S. Doherty; Corrigan; F. Kiely (Ryan); Forde; Alymer; O’Kelly.
Meanwhile Ballingarry under 15 player Nathan Clancy was one of 70 boys in Dublin over the weekend undergoing trials for the Republic of Ireland Under 15 squad. Thirty six players will be selected for a training camp in October from which a squad of 18 will be selected for a tournament in Qatar in December.
