Ballycumber GAA Club Notes (June 11)

Ballycumber GAA

St Manchan Gaels Table Quiz and BBQ

A Table Quiz and Bar B Q will be held in Ballycumber Community Centre on Saturday next 15th June at 6pm to raise funds to help with the cost involved with St Manchan Gaels under 14 footballers trip to Feile Peile na nOg in Sligo at the end of June. We encourage everyone to come along and support this family-friendly and fun fundraiser. Tables cost 40 euros.

Buggy Coaches Division 2 Football League

The half time score of 1—2 each tells a lot about the accuracy of both teams (Ballycumber & Tubber) and though the scoring rate improved in the second half this was a poor game of football. Ballycumber started with points from Nigel Grennan and Joe Lowry. Tubber opened their account with a point from play and took the lead with a goal. A Ballycumber passing movement saw Karl Daly give a perfect pass to put Gary Larkin through on goal and he drove the ball to the net. The home side got their second point from play to leave the sides level at the break.

Tubber scored a point soon after the restart, but Cormac Quinn from a free and a point from play by Gary Larkin restored Ballycumber lead. The lead was soon wiped out with a Tubber point from a free. An Adrian Kelly point gave the lead back to Ballycumber. The lead was soon wiped out by a deflected goal for the home side. Joe Lowry pointed a free to which Tubber responded with a similar score. Cormac Quinn who had seen a good shot flash outside the post earlier got the radar corrected with a shot to the corner of the net. Tubber replied with two points and finished stronger with three more points to one in reply from Cormac.

Ballycumber will play Bracknagh next weekend in Ballycumber.

Team: Leo Guinan, Alan Flanagan, Michael Egan, Kenneth Delaney, John Egan, Karl Daly, Ethan Keena, Tom Corcoran, Luke Gavin Mangan, Marcus Keena, Cormac Quinn, Shaun Creevy, Gary Larkin, Nigel Grennan, Joe Lowry, Adrian Kelly, John Corcoran, Fergal Daly, Kevin Kelly.
