GROUP B Aodh Ruadh V St NaulsSaturday, 3.30pmBy a country mile this is the match of the day in south Donegal between two clubs with real ambitions of taking a county title.Aodh Ruadh lost out to Glenfin in last years final.They were reduced to 12 men in an otherwise rancour free encounter with Naomh Muire last weekend.Niall Murray and Sean Taylor saw red, but it appears they will appeal the Cian Dolan matter as he appears to have been sent off on two yellows.Dolan in particular would be a big loss against a St Nauls side that are strong in central slots.The Griffins, Daniel Brennan, Lee McBrearty and Brendan McCole give them a strong spine and they also have the talented Peadar Mogan and John Rose to spur their efforts.Aodh Ruadh have been hit with injuries and will look to Eamon McGrath, Colm Kelly and Shane McGrath for inspiration, but it might be an away win.
Subs Jay Gallagher, Declan Maguire, Mark Fisher. Team & scorers Adam Burr; Tadgh Mc Garrigle, Cale Breslin, Kyle Johnston, Patrick Gormley, Conor Colton, Donal Gallagher 1-0, Liam Gallagher, Liam Given 0-1, Mickey Harron 2-0, Adam Lyons, Calum Mc Cafferty 1-1, Aaron Mc Grory 2-6, Jamie Anderson 0-1, John Anderson 0-1. Well done to our U14 team who defeated St Eunans in O Donnell Park on Sunday evening.
Aodh Ruadh against St. Naul's the game of the weekend
Red Hughs V CloughaneelySunday 3pmCloughaneely are fancied to go all the way in this competition after doing well to survive in Division One of the league.This weekend they meet last years Junior A champions from Crossroads.Home advantage is always crucical and the Stephen McMenamin, Gerard Melaugh, Peadar McGlinchey and Calvin Bradley-inspired Red Hughs will certainly not lack in confidence.But they face seasoned opponents who still have the powerful Maguire clan, the elegant John Fitzgerald and Darren Ferry in a club with a number of dual players.Naomh Brid almost shocked Cloughaneely last week, so that could have been the jolt they needed to boost their chances.Red Hughs will bring plenty of skill and steel to the table, but it looks like Cloughaneelys greater power and experience of playing at a higher level, will prevail.
Sundays game should be another close battle, and both teams will fancy their chances of picking up a result. *RESERVES*Our reserves are still on the hunt for their first 2 points of the campaign but after a strong performance away to Glenties last Monday and unlucky to pick up a result Mickey and the lads will be looking to pick up a victory this Sunday. Red Hughs Reserves are also unbeaten in the league this year winning all 3 games. With the lads pushing hard to get a win it makes for exciting game this Sunday. *SENIORS*Our seniors got a good win away to fanad last week and will look to carry that momentum forward to this Sunday against a strong Red Hughs side who are unbeaten in 3 and are Current County and Ulster Junior Champions. ** SENIORS AND RESERVES**Both our teams are away to Red Hughs this coming Sunday. The lads are improving with every game and with a good performance this Sunday the wont be too far way from a win. The same fixture last year threw up one victory for Naomh Brd and a draw.
A great nights craic is guaranteed with games to suit all and there will be Music on the night by the very talented Mr Barry Breslin, loads of great raffle prizes and a door prize. Refreshments will also be served . ** TONIGHT ** Tonight Naomh Brid u14 Bord Na Nog parents are hosting a casino night to fund a football trip for this very deserving team.
Result NBrid/Pettigo 6-9 St Eunans 3-3
Naomh Columba V Gaeil FhnadaSunday, 3pmThose bounding young men from Glen came through a searching test against Burt last week and will be keen to continue in that vein this weekend.Aaron Doherty, Ryan Gillespie, Paddy Byrne, Pauric Ward and Christopher Byrne are all big players for the team from the south west.Opponents Fanad rely on the towering Michael Sweeney to win clean possession in the middle of the park while Mark McAteer is a key figure up front in the absence of Seamie 'Nannie and Seamie Cosia Friel.But, home advantage should be a big help for the men from Glen.
