Buncrana GAA Notes for Week Ending Sunday 26th April 2015
Our U16 footballers had an outstanding win against Termon on Wednesday evening with a great display of teamwork and finishing. Oisin Grant excelled with a 5 goal haul but the whole panel played a key role in this powerful display.
Well done to our U10 Footballers who played their 1st Blitz of the Northern Board in N. Colmcille Newtown on Saturday morning. A great display of skills and determination were on display against strong Lifford, Letterkenny Gaels and N. Colmcille teams. Next match next Saturday away to Carndonagh
The U8 Footballers got their 1st Inishowen Game off to a great start on Saturday Afternoon. 44 children togged out for the club at the Scarvey and each player gave 100% in all games. Thanks to our players, coaches, referees and parents for their support on the sideline and to Carndonagh CLG for providing good competitive football.
