Tullamore Court Hotel Senior B Football Championship

Shamrocks 1-18,  Ballycumber 4-8

Ballycumber suffered their second defeat of this year’s championship when they lost to Shamrocks by one point in Clara on Sunday. Short a number of regulars through suspension and injury, including minor Luke Gavin Mangan who had played with the Offaly minor team in their excellent victory over Westmeath on Saturday, Ballycumber got off to a great start but soon fell behind. As the game progressed Shamrocks were scoring more frequently until they fell foul of the dreaded red cards. Ballycumber got through for goals which brought the score closer and nearly got the badly needed win. The long layoff will hopefully get all players fit and ready for action.

Team: Leo Guinan, Diarmuid Donoghue, Karl Daly, Nigel Grennan, Ethan Keena, Chris McDonald, Emmet Kelly, Tom Corcoran, John Egan, Cormac Quinn, Michael Egan, Peter Dunne, Ritchie Dunne, John Corcoran, Joe Lowry, Adrian Kelly.
