Higgins Reign Begins With Defeat

Results Weekending August 23rd 2009
Premier Divison – Abbeyfeale United 2 Ballingarry 0

No joy for new manager James Higgins in his first game in charge as they fell to Abbeyfeale United 2-0 away last Sunday morning. A goal in each half done the damage to a Ballingarry team which featured five new faces from last season. Shane and Colin Doherty made their club debuts while Patrick Kenrick was back in goal after a lapse of some years. Brian Kelly and Brian Fitzgerald were also in the team, Kelly returning after a long absence while Fitzgerald has swapped the B team that he captained last season for the Premier division.

Both the other games involving the club at the weekend were called off. The B game against Rockhill Rovers on Sunday and the under 16 division 1 game against NCW on Saturday.
