U/13 Boys National Cup – Avenue Utd 1 Ballingarry 0
Just one goal decided this very tight game in the Banner sides favour

Youth Div. 1 – Mountcollins 0 Ballingarry 9 (M Molloy 4, Casey 2, Geary 2, Southgate)
As the score line suggests Ballingarry were far too strong for their opponents.

U12 Girls National Blitz (Sixmilebridge) – Gp G 1 Fern Celtic (CDSL) 0 Ballingarry 0
Ballingarry opening game in the National blitz saw them end scoreless against Fern Celtic of Clare. Ballingarry were much the netter side dominating lone periods of the game but were unable to find the breakthrough.

Gp G 2 Ballymackey (STSL) 1 Ballingarry 1 (Russel)
Ballingarrys second group game wnded in another draw with Aoife Russel getting the Ballingarry goal in a very even game.

Gp G 3 Tipperary Town (NTSL) 0 Ballingarry 0
Ballingarrys toughest game so far as they were under pressure for long stretches, were happy with the draw.

Gp G 4 Ashling Annacotty (LCSL) 1 Ballingarry 1 (Russel)
Ballingarry final game ended in another draw with Aoife Russell getting the goal from a rare break. Ballingarrys final finishing position of 3rd wasn’t enough to see the progress to the Nationals finals in Abbottstown.

U/16 Boys Div 1 – Granagh Utd 2 Ballingarry 4 (Molloy 2; Lynch; Geary)

Premier Div – Adare Utd 0 Ballinarry 1 (Clancy pen)
A 55th minute penalty from Dean Clancy was enough to claim all three points in The Manor Fields and kick off the season with a win. In truth the margin should have been greater with the winners guilty of missing at least two one v ones with the Adare keeper saving both. O’Grady in the Ballingarry goal was hardly troubled throughout the 90 minutes and while not a vintage Ballingarry performance they will be happy with the points knowing that a lot needs to be done to improve on last season.
Team: O Grady; Fitz; J O Connor, Moore, Clancy; Forde; A O Connor; Quinlivan; Quill; Hayes; Long.
