Saturday afternoon we faced Athea in the county league. With previous coach Seamus O Donnell now in charge of the Athea side we were sure of a tern challenge. This year has been up and down for our senior side with confidence quite low however with alot of player returning to action we managed to secure a hard fought win. From the off we were under pressure with Athea playing a 2 man full forward line with alot od space in front, they took their scores well, we manged some excellent chances ourselves with Conor Mullane and Richard Hayes going close. Adam Kearns deep runs from half back was causing trouble while James Naughton was the pivot directing all our attacks. Trailling by 3 points at half time we pushed on an improved with our fitness begging to kick in, gain goal chances were wasted however we managed to dig out a hard fought win and return some positive feeling back in the side.
