Boys U10 St Lomans Tournament

Well done to our u10s boys who competed in the U10 St Loman’s Tournament last weekend. With three great wins in the group stages the lads topped their group and progressed to the cup semi-final where they met a strong St Lomans side. The boys were unlucky to come out on the losing end in what was a great game of football. Every player showed great sportsmanship and commitment and were a credit to their club and their parents. The future is bright for this group of players.

U14 Division 1 League – Athlone 2-11 Millmore Gaels 0-09

Our final league game in Ballymore proved to be our toughest challenge to date. A win for either side would see them progress to the league final. Athlone started the game well and were 3 points to the good midway through the first half, however Millmore hit back and finished the half very strong and went in at the interval 2 points up on a scoreline of 0-08 to 1-03. The second half proved to be Athlone’s best 30 minutes of the year to date. Some fantastic defending limited Millmore to just one point in the second half and this proved to be the backbone to a great victory. The all-important second goal came 15 minutes from time and proved to be the score that put the tie to bed. This was a superb display and sets the lads up for a league final appearance versus St Lomans on Saturday 15th June at 2pm in Cusack Park. Best of luck in the final and all support would be greatly appreciated.

​​​​​U12 Go Games v St Josephs

The Athlone U12 boys played St. Joseph’s on Wednesday the 29th May. It was a very sporting game and both teams played well. Our lads played with the support of a very strong wind in the 1st half, and went in at the break a few points up. The wind died down in the 2nd half and it made for more entertaining free flowing football. It was a great team performance throughout the game, where Gary Prendergast played well in goals with excellent kickouts, Philip Heavey was prominent in defence where he was always in front of his man and creating opportunities when in possession. Cillian Donlon showed well in attack and his distribution of the ball was excellent in creating scoring opportunities for team mates. The team was as follows: Gary Prendergast, Rory McMickan, Aaron Hardiman, Shane Killian, Jack Larkin, Philip Heavey, Darragh Lough, Adam Casey, Kyle Mahon, Conor Lough, Senan Snow, Cillian Donlon, Joshua Ukatu

Congratulations

A big congratulations to Southern Gaels U14s who made it all the way to the all-Ireland final in their Division in the U14 Hurling Feile last weekend in Cork. Unfortunately luck was not on their side in the final, however this is an amazing achievement and everyone at Athlone GAA club wish them all the best for the future.
