Masonite Senior Football Championship
The Championship gets underway for the Bors this Saturday evening when we play Carrigallen in Cloone at 7.30pm. Carrigallen enjoyed a comprehensive victory at the weekend over Aughnasheeln, who are the third team in the group, and will prove a very difficult proposition for the Bors. As always, your support is appreciated and the game is preceded by the meeting of Kiltubrid and Sean O Heslins at 6pm.
U-14’s in Final
The U-14 team produced a terrific display in a nail biting encounter with Aughnasheelin on Friday evening last. Despite a late goal by the Aughnasheelin boys, the Bors held their nerve in the closing minutes to secure a single point victory. The win ensures a place for the Bors in the u-14 9-a-side final which will take place this Friday evening and will be against Glenfarne. At the time of writing, venue and throw-in time have yet to be confirmed.
However, the players on duty for Bornacoola in the final will include Shane Sullivan, Brian Duffy, Liam Mulligan, Robert O'Berne, Ciaran Cambell, Sean Muldowney, Ronan Mulligan, Kevin Shanley, Dillon Hackett, Fergal Hackett, Gearoid Mulligan, Kevin Mulligan, Liam Jones and Karl Mallon. Best of luck to all involved.
The Minor team suffered a heavy defeat to Gortletteragh on Wednesday night last. This Wednesday (July 29th) they face Kiltubrid in Drumcong in a game that will have a 7pm throw-in.
In last week’s notes, I omitted the names of James Mc Keon and Brendan Duignan from the management team for the Division 4 campaign. My apologies to the lads; no doubt they’ll let me hear about it over the next few weeks!
Ladies 9-a-side Final
It’s a big weekend for our Ladies team also as they travel to Leitrim village on Saturday afternoon to play in the Ladies 9-a-side final. The girls have been training diligently for the past number of weeks and their appearance in the final is worthy reward for their hard work under the guidance of Vinny Canning and Sean Mc Cauley. The throw-in on Saturday is 5pm leaving Bornacoola supporters ample time to take in both this game and the men’s championship opener in Cloone at 7.30pm. Our thanks to Derek Hunt for sponsoring tops for the panel.
The Junior A team begin their championship campaign this Bank Holiday Monday as they take on Melvin Gaels in Leitrim village at 2pm. The game is part of a double header and will be followed by the meeting of Drumkeerin and Gortletteragh at 3.30pm.
