Minor Football

Our minors got off to a successful start in the championship, when they had a five point win away to Dungarvan in their first match last Wednesday night (switched from Tuesday), winning out on a score-line of 4-9 to 3-7. They now play on Monday 2nd April, at home to Gaultier with a throw-in at 6:45 PM,  & then on Wednesday 4th April, at home to St. Pats, with a 7 pm start.

Junior Football

Our juniors started their competitive season last Saturday at home to St. Saviours on in the eastern junior/intermediate league. After a competitive hours football the matched finished level, Rathgormack 1-12, St. Saviours 2-9. Both teams were under strength & showed signs of it being their first match of the year. A big improvement will be required for our next match in the league away to intermediate team Bonmahon in two weeks time.

Senior Football

Our seniors played their first league match at home to Kilrosanty last Sunday, at the earlier time of 12 noon, instead of 7 PM as advertised. There has been very little between these two teams in the last few years, & so it turned out last Sunday, when the game ended level on full time. Kilrosanty had the better of the first half & led 1-4 to 1-2 at the break. We improved on the turnover & drew level on 44 minutes, before falling behind again. Two late points from Jack Nugent earned us a draw. Final score, Rathgormack 1-8, Kilrosanty 1-8. Team: Brendan Crotty, Billy Power, Tony Power, Ciaran Fogarty, Nigel Skehan, Paudie Larkin, Cathal Crowch, Jack Nugent, Paul Power, Mikey Halpin, John Kirwan (Cool), Jamie Kirwan, Donal Larkin, Edmund Hogan, Gavin Nugent.
