Senior: Churchill will look to get back to winning ways this weekend when we welcome Castlegregory to Churchill on Sunday afternoon at 2pm.

Both teams will be desperate for a win in this one following defeats for both in the last round, and the result could have a big bearing on which end of the table the teams find themselves in later in the season.

Senior B: Churchill B team got their Co League campaign off to a flying start last Friday evening by beating Moyvane by 2-20 to 0-08 in Churchill.  Churchill had a fine young team out, with a sprinkling of experience thrown in for good measure.  Best on the night were Paul Buckley and Sean Donnellan, but there were great displays all over the field.  Next up is a home tie against St Senans on Friday week, 31st May at 7:30pm.

U12: Our green team had a very narrow win against Kilcummin A last Sunday evening at home in Churchill on a score line 3-11 to 4-7. While both teams were fairly even, Kilcummin were strong in midfield and, with the wind to their backs in the first half, they setup most scores through the middle.

Churchill struggled to get into the game for much of the first half and trailed 3-5 to 1-4 at half time. With the wind on our backs we improved in the 2nd half and got a great start with a goal and a point. We were now breaking even in the middle of the field and Churchill plugged away with scores.

In the last minute of the game we got a point from a free to snatch the win by a point. Kilcummin were unlucky not to get something from this game and while it was not our best performance, it was a much needed win.  Well done boys.

Our U12 black team had a great win in their first game of the 2nd phase of the league against Kilcummin on a beautiful evening in Churchill. The boys were quick out of the blocks and despite playing against a bit of a breeze got some lovely scores from great teamwork to lead by 7 points at half time. We continued playing some fine football in the 2nd half and used the breeze well to set up our front players with some great long passes. Kilcummin fought hard to get back into the game, but we finished strongly to pull away at the end, winning 5-13 to 3-6. Well done everyone.
