Congratulations to our P7 and P6 team who won the Shield Final in the Dunloy GAA Academy Final. In an exciting final that was real end to end stuff Ballerin beat Kilrea by 5-10 to 3-10.
At times the going was tough but they kept going until the final whistle for a superb victory. After that win they were in action again beating Dunloy in their final league game to make it five wins from eight league games. The boys were a credit to their club and management and it looks good for the future.
The players were Matthew Brown, Odhran Walton, Ryan Doherty, Tiernan Hamill, Costas Papachristopolous, Odhran Canning, Peter Clarke, Peter Mullan, Ronan McCormick, Tiernan Mullan, Darren Robinson, Adam Reid, Patrick Black and Conor Bradley.
Not a good day for our P6 and P7 team who lost both games at the annual Dunloy GAA Academy on Sunday. They faced two of the strongest teams in the competition Cargin and Dunloy who are both in contention to win the league.
So far a record of four victories and three defeats is heartening for this dedicated group of players. This Sunday they play Kilrea in the Shield final and Dunloy Cuchullians in the league. Good luck to the boys who are doing the club proud.
Well done to our P6&P7 team again this week, they won both their league games on Sunday morning in the Dunloy football academy (Ballerin 4-11 Glenravel 2-9 and Ballerin 8-9 Kilrea 4-9).
The team is back in Dunloy again next week with 2 more league games against Antrim teams Dunloy and Cargin.
All their hard work and dedication is now being rewarded.
Congratulations to our p6/p7 team who are taking part in Dunloy GAA Academy tournament. They played in the championship on Sunday and were narrowly beaten by a single point by All Saints Ballymena. This didn’t dampen their spirits at all for they went into the shield semi final and had a good win over Dun Lathi (Dunloy).
They will meet the other Derry competitors Kilrea in the final in a few weeks time. Next week the two teams meet in the league which will give us a chance to get to know each other. They also play Con Magees Glenravel both matches on Sunday at 12 and 12.30.
