Our Cooney Motors/Cooney Centra sponsored Junior A team put in a spirited display against Castlerea in their relegation playoff in Strokestown under lights on Saturday night. The game was called off in extra time due to a serious accidental head injury to Dermot Lyons from Castlerea. Thankfully Dermot was discharged from hospital and we wish him a speedy recovery. Thank you to our physio Conor McGowan who assisted the injured player and well done to the referee, officials and Strokestown GAA for managing their excellent management of the situation.
The game itself finished Boyle 2-11 to Castlerea 4-05 with Castlerea scoring the last free of the game to bring it to extra time. The game will be replayed in Strokestown next Saturday evening at 7.30pm. Best of luck to team and management.
U14 Division 2 Football Championship 2020
Boyle 1-11 St Michael's 2-15
Pride of place this week goes to our U12 girls who had a fantastic win against Northern Harps in the U12 County Final in the Abbey Park on Sunday evening. Commiserations to Northern Harps. The Boyle girls have been very committed all year and made steady and incremental improvement throughout the season, which culminated in an excellent team performance this week. With a panel of 28 players they all contributed significantly throughout the year, both at training and in games. The win on Sunday was a fitting finish for the group as a whole, with each and every player having great potential if they continue to improve, and enjoy the game as much as they have done so this year. Well done to all the girls for a great season. Many thanks to the management team of John Brennan, Adrian Brogan, Steve Tonry, Michael Tormey, Barbaranne Fitzpatrick & Joan Mullen.
