Update 15th July

It was a week of action action for Cooney Motors motors sponsored Junior team this week. It started with a league match against very strong St Kevin's in Castlerea which was full of underage county players, on Tuesday evening. While Boyle played some good football it was a case of missed opportunities in our forward play and in 10 minutes of play Castlrea managed to score three goals. This loss left Boyle second from bottom on the division 4 league.

As a direct result this meant that a loss against neighbours St. Michaels on the Friday evening would mean religation back to division 5 next year. Boyle played with a strong breeze in the first half but were behind by 5 points to 1 at half time. Boyle got out of the blocks quicker and got more accurate with a couple of points straight after the break. With their tails in the air Boyle finally got the break through of a goal by Jack Moran to put them ahead. Adam Simon netted a second goal to give more breathing space. St Michaels got a goal of their own in the closing minutes of the match but Boyle held on to victory which now puts them in to a religation play off to be confirmed.
Boyle team; K Sweeney, C Boylan, J Cox, C Horan, C Mc Gee, Marc O Connor, C Tivnan, B Kieran, J Suffin, J Moran, T Regan, R Hannon, k Sweeney, T Henry, A Simon. 

There was no underage or a ladies football this week.

Update 8th July

Next Saturday night Boyle GAA will hold an additional draw for all €5 lotto entries sold this week.

Prize: 2 match tickets for the Roscommon v  Dublin Super 8 game in Croke Park with overnight hotel stay in Dublin.  Draw will be in conjunction with our lotto and will be held next Saturday night (July 13) with the €10,600 lotto draw in Dodds. Envelopes available in the usual local outlets.

Pitch activity was quiet this week with only the Senior Ladies. They were out twice this week as part of their Intermediate Championship campaign. First they met St Dominic’s on Monday evening and beat them 0:13 to 1:09 with some brilliant play throughout the field. On Sunday evening they travelled to Athleague to face St Ciaran’s - a hot day which made for a difficult game. With an incomplete outfit they fought hard, won some incredible ball and popped some great points. Unfortunately it wasn’t their day, at full time it ended up Boyle 1:16 to St Ciaran’s 7:06. That leaves the Ladies with one win and two losses so far in the Championship but all is still to play 

Following the Cul Camp in Abbey Park last week the ‘lost and found ‘ department has become quite packed.  If your child is missing an item of clothing etc  please  arrange to collect it this week. 

Our junior team will take on Castlerea this Tuesday at 8 pm in Castlerea in a must win leave match, support as always appreciated.
