SENIOR TEAM

Historically given the gap in tradition between the clubs our recent fixtures against Creggs have had to be endured rather than enjoyed.  Last Sunday in Leitrim Village when missing up to five regulars due to various  reasons this proved particularly painful as league leaders Creggs ran riot.

This was hard to take given our recent morale boosting win away to Connemara.  The few highlights were the eye catching but assured debut of Roscommon GAA star Derek Connellan at full back,  Paddy Leydens barnstorming display in the back row and the prolonged cameo of old stager John Casey, it was like you were never away.

However more manageable fixtures await and with a fuller squad to choose from many opportunities to rise up the table.

TEAM
Derek Connellan, Davitt O’Shannon, Gavin Kelly, Ian Fowden, Ollie Duignan, Ciaran Reilly, Kevin Coffey, Joe Mulvey, Emmet Argue, Shane McGuinness (c), Peter Beirne, Sean MacEoin, Joe Mulleady,  Paddy Leyden, Dermot Foley.

SUBS
John Casey, Danny Snead, Esmond Gill, Stephen Guckian.
