Rathcline Club Notes Sunday 17th August 2014

posted 18 Aug 2014, 12:51 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Our Intermediate team had a very disappointing defeat to Carrickedmond last Sunday in Ballymahon. The first half was controlled by Rathcline, they played the better football, and although the half time score line of 4 points to 3 in favour of Rathcline, it didn’t reflect a half where there was decent play, high energy from both teams and fantastic commitment. Maybe Rathcline were guilty of not taking a few scores and with a cruel cross field wind, it was ...always going to be a difficult second half. Carrickedmond came out and attacked Rathcline from the off, some sloppy play from our team led to Carrickedmond picking off some valuable points, when Carrick went 3 points up, they played defensively and to be fair played it well, they broke at speed at picked off a few points. There was also a penalty save by Daithi Mulvihill which kept Rathcline in with a shout. But try as they could, the Carrick defence kept all attackers at bay. It was one of those days where lots of things went wrong, but the team will bounce back, and that comes about quickly. Rathcline play Sean Connolys in Ardagh at 1.30. This is a play off match with the winner straight into a semi final. It’s going to be a real test, and one which will be met with relish by our men. Please come and support the lads again!

There was no winner of the weekly lotto. The jackpot next week is €1600. The €25 winners were, John Gill Kenagh, Tom Mulvihill Cullentra, Donal Brady Carrickboy, and Frank Regan Lanesboro.

Rathcline Minor Club
The whole set up at under age level is in rude health at the moment and first off well done to all the squads and management. On Tuesday evening our Minor team take on Carrickedmond in the semi final of the championship. The game is in Clonbonny at 7.30. We would urge everyone to come out and support the team as there will be plenty of away support, it’s a home match and lets make it count, your support helps!
