Under 21 Challenge
Our Under 21 team warmed up for their championship semi-final with a useful and entertaining challenge against Clann na nGael in a damp Páirc Chiaráin on Saturday night. With several of the more experienced players unavailable, this was an opportunity for the younger members of the panel to impress the selectors and they showed great character and plenty of ability as they turned a nine point half-time deficit into a three point win (4-12 to 2-15).
We are scheduled to play The Downs at home in Páirc Chiaráin in the championship semi-final this weekend, but the exact time and date hasn't been confirmed before publication. All support will be welcome so please check our Facebook page or website www.athlone.gaa.ie for throw-in details.
