Weekly Round Up
The Under 7.5’s had their first outing of the season as they travelled to Pearse Og Park, Armagh on Sunday morning. The Under 7.5’s; divided into 3 teams; played seven small sided games against the home side with some very entertaining action. The players all showed improvements as the morning went on. Thanks to all the players, coaches and parents who attended and helped out on the day. Thanks also to the Og’s for their invitation. There is no coaching this Sunday due to Easter.
The Under 11.5’s continued their early season travels with a trip North to the home of the county champions to face Clann Eireann. The Under 11.5’s have been very active in pre season and their performances have continued to improve and develop. Next up for the Under 11.5’s is a home game against Clonoe on Thursday evening at O’Neill Park with a 6-30pm throw in time.
Under 17’s Secure Opening Day Win
The clubs under 17’s travelled to Ballymacnab in the opening round of league fixtures. A blustery Páirc na nGael was in great condition.
Playing against the win in the first half Port Mór played some excellent football with Jack Hughes, Dee Keegan and Conor Agnew causing the home side problems. Indeed it was a well taken Jack Hughes goal that put Port Mór in the driving seat. Ballymacnab responded well and with a c
ouple of late frees cut the deficit to four points. Half Time Score Ballymacnab 0-6 An Port Mór 1-7.
The home side started the second half brightly with a couple of points but Port Mór’s attacking duo of Conor Agnew David Bogusz hit five points in an eight-minute period. The home side did create some good goal chances but a combination of some good saves from Reece Traynor and defensive blocks kept Port Mór’s lead intact. A couple of late goals from Conor Agnew and Dee Keegan put some gloss on an all-round good display.
On a day where all in amber and black showed quality a special mention must go to the midfield duo of Ben McQuade and Jude Lavery who got through a mountain of work and covered every blade of grass.
The senior game was called off at the weekend. Their next fixture is against Dorsey on Friday the 22nd of April.
