The seniors and reserves are back in league action this weekend (Saturday 5th) with a trip away to Termon. The reserves throw in at 4pm and the seniors are on at 5:30pm.
The updated league run-in is shown below....
First aid for coaches working with teams and de-fibulator courses are in the process of being set up over the winter months and its vitally important that anyone who is intending to work in any capacity with club teams next year get these course's done.
In 2014 Garda vetting is going to be compulsory for all coaching members and club members who are involved with under age teams. This is not a club rule but is the law and it is being implemented by 'Coaching Ireland' and GAA Clubs are going to have to step into line and implement these rules. We ask anyone who is thinking about helping out next year and existing Coaches to contact the Children's officer Dónal Ó'Séarcáigh to get Garda vetting done and to avail of the courses that will benefit not only coaches but the club and club teams.
Remember GARDA VETTING is law from 2014 and its for everyone's protection that we implement this rule!
Big Table Quiz in support of Naomh Muire GAA Club to be held this Saturday 21st September in Caisleáin Óir Annagry.
Please support and pass the word around
A four point defeat in Bundoran this afternoon by the Seniors means a really tough league run-in with three matches left. Having played really well in the first half in blustery conditions, the second half performance just didn't happen and Bundoran took control after getting the crucial goal. It was a disappointing result leaving much to do in the remaining league matches to avoid getting caught up in a relegation battle.
The reserves won by a big margin and played well with some great football being played especially in the second half against the elements. Bundoran reserves were unable to shackle the strong running and support play of the Naomh Muire reserves on the day...well done.
The division 2 league is now coming to a interesting conclusion with all teams having 3 or less games to play. Bundoran and Glenfin have the advantage of all home games for the run in whereas Buncrana and Cloich Cheann Fhaola will be on the road for their final games. League leaders, Glenswilly have three tough games, one at home and two away; one of which includes a trip to the Banks. Second placed Termon will entertain Naomh Muire at the Burn road as well as facing a trip to Glenswilly in what may be a league decider. Third place Dungloe face the bottom two sides at home as well as a trip south to Bundoran.
Following our own league game tomorrow in Bundoran we have the top and bottom side in the league, both at home, as well as a trip to second placed Termon. Mac Cumhaills play bottom of the table Buncrana at home as well as completing the return leg of the derby in Glenfin.
As we have seen throughout the league there is nothing easy and as we close in on the end of the league all teams will be out to take maximum points from there remaining games which should make for an interesting run in to this year's league.
Below is the current table (14/09/13) following tonight's two league games. This will be updated following tomorrow's game in Bundoran.
Following the success in getting into the Intermediate Final last week,the lads travel to Bundoran tomorrow for a very important league match against Bundoran. Two important league points will be the reward for victory and would place the lads another notch up the table.
There are a few injuries but this can also create opportunities for really good fringe players to come in and perform their way into the side. With the panel stronger than earlier in the year and playing well of late Naomh Muire should be confident of going and taking the points against what will be tough but not impossible to beat opposition. On their day the Lads have shown they are a match and beyond for any side in the league and a big performance tomorrow will have us coming back from South Donegal with points.
The reserves are on at 1.30pm hoping to continue good league form and to continue the development of up and coming players in the reserve set up which has been impressive.
Naomh Muire are in the Intermediate Championship Final following today's semi-final win over Aodh Ruadh. Aodh Ruadh started the livelier and the lads were finding it hard to get any rhythm allowing Aodh Ruadh to get into a 0-04 to 0-01 lead and was it not for poor finishing by the Erne-siders they could have created damage early on. Naomh Muire scored their way back into level and just before half time. Paul the Yank Boyle converted a penalty putting the lads into a lead their possession may not have deserved. Aodh Ruadh overall would have been disappointed to be down by a goal at half time.
The second half was a different performance by Naomh Muire and apart from the opening 5 mins, the lads went on to dominate the second half adding a further 6 points with Aodh Ruadh managing only a single score late on.
It's great to get to another Intermediate Championship final and that will be against the impressive St Nauls who beat Naomh Columba well last night. The prize is not only a county title at this level but Senior Championship football in 2014. St Naul's are a physically strong team led by Stephen Griffen. Naomh Muire will have to play the full hour in the final and a slow start like today will be punished without doubt. If the lads however can repeat the purple patch of today's match which was the last 20 mins of the second half and ensure that it is carried over the full game, they can topple St Naul's. In a way its good to come out of a Semi with plenty of work to do and things to improve and with time now to do that. No doubt Danny and the backroom team will get the lads down to serious preparation over the coming weeks and to be an hour away from Senior Championship football in 2014 requires little motivation.
Well done to Team and Management and again to a good support. The victory in a Semi-final is what matters and the team especially this years Minors involved dedicated the win to young Conor Boyle, their mate, who is critical in Hospital in the UK.
