U12 (A) Boys: Ballymacelligott 5-22 Milltown-Castlemaine 5-5.
Played on Sunday evening 11/05/14. The boys were competing in their final game of this league. They were chasing their fourth win in a row and tore into the game from the throw in. Darragh Leen was impressive in mid field and lay the foundations for many scores. The boys were very dominant in every position and led 5-10 to 1-4 at half time. Jon Lowe had an impressive game at half back and we had the luxury of making positional changes such was our dominance. The final score showed the hard work the lads are putting in. Well done to all.

U12 – Boys. Ballymac Gold Team 5-21 Milltown/C’maine1-00

Played in Ballymac last Sunday evening we were too strong on the night and came away with a comfortable victory.Phase 2 of U12’s begins next Sunday evening, no fixtures to date but keep an eye on web-site.

Our u 12s travelled to near neighbours Currow on Sunday 4 May in round 4 of the county league. Currow A 1-7 Ballymac A 5-19.
A comprehensive victory for the boys who ran our deserved winners. Conditions were windy and the lads played with the breeze in the first half. They soon got to grips with conditions and played intelligently throughout. The pass and run game employed paid dividends with some great scores. Half time Ballymac 3-9. Currow 0-4 We expected at sterner test from Currow in the second half but in fairness to the lads they didn’t leave Currow get any foothold in the game. Again some terrific passages of play from the boys who are improving with each game. Jack Tobin is becoming a very competent keeper and Bryan Godley showed some good finishes in front of goal. All in all 1 to 13 can be proud of themselves.

Currow B 5 -6. Ballymac B 5- 10. Another fine display by our younger team. The training is paying off and they are putting some great plays together. Our defence was well on top. And the forwards made Currow pay time and again. Great link play is a feature of all the hard work these boys are putting in every Tuesday and Friday A great squad display from the boys Well done to all !


Well done on a great performance by all our rising stars at Academy on Sunday morning.

The U8 boys were also in action with Jack Joy, Martin McKivergan, Gearoid Healy and Ciaran O’Connell displaying some great skill and enthusiasm. A fantastic effort was also made by all the girls in attendance. Keep up the great work.
