Ballymore 1-12   Garrycastle 0-9

The Garrycastle Div 5 team travelled to Ballymore on Sat evening last and despite hours of torrential rain the home pitch was in excellent condition.  Part time work , exams and injuries left us with a total of 15 players and full credit to them for ensuring that we fulfilled the fixture.  Garrycastle started brightly and had the first two points on the board in a matter of minutes but a combination of wides from kickable positions ,  poor passing and some lovely long range points by Ballymore left Garrycastle trailing by 5 points at half time.

Full credit to the Garrycastle players, some of whom were playing in positions not best suited to them , they battled to the end and three of the 45s awarded to Garrycastle were as a result of last ditch defending by Ballymore to prevent certain goals.   Sean Gunning and Eric Mc Cormack made a welcome return to the team and acquitted themselves well.   

GARRYCASTLE: Mike Fagan, Richie Byrne, Mark Denby, Gary Mullery, Sean Carey, Sean Gunning, Adam Keena, Emmet Ward, Cathal Mannion, Paul Mulvihill, Bryan McCormack, Darragh McCormack, Eric McCormack, Enda Keena, Frank Doolan.
