St. Michaels Minor Board

Under 16’s

The Under 16’s played Buncranna in the Northern Semi Final on Monday night last at home and won comfortably. The team then played St. Eunans under lights in Convoy in the Northern Final last Thursday evening and were beaten on a score of 11pts to 6.

This was a great team performance from our boys though the weather conditions were very poor for football!!

Next up was a game against Ardara in Gweedore on Sunday morning in the county semi final. The St. Michael’s boys won again comfortably in a great performance and it was a fantastic achievement for the management and the players to get to the county final with the venue and date to be decided.

Very best wishes to all concerned.
