It was a hectic week with four teams playing in different grades and with great success we won all four games.  On Monday evening of last week 8th August our U16 B team played Der Gaels in the championship at Cloghan GAA grounds.  We were ahead at half time 1-4 to 1-1 but we missed some great chances in the first half.  Credit due to Der Gaels goal keeper who brought off some terrific saves.  We ran out winners by 2-7 to 2-3 and it was a terrific gaol by Graeme Lynch in the dying moments of the game that put some daylight between the teams.  Eoin Gannon had a fine game at right full back, Graeme Lynch when switched into the forwards. Declan Langtry at No 5, Colm Daly at centre back.  James Daly and Ciaran Fogarty worked hard in midfield and in the forward Dean Flynn and Michael Dolan with an impressive 1-3 were very prominent on the evening.  St Rynaghs U16 B Team:  Evan Conroy, Eoin Gannon, Graeme Lynch 1-0, Martin Daly, Declan Langtry, Colm Daly, Shane Healy, James Daly 0-1, Ciaran Fogarty, Alan Moylan, Evan Keane 0-1, Dean Flynn 0-1, Darren Healy 0-1, Michael Dolan 1-3, Ronan Hughes.  Subs:  Eoin Flynn for Evan Keane (Injured), Cormac Gleeson for Alan Moylan.  Referee:  Aidan Ryan, Lusmagh.


On Last Wednesday week our Minor A footballers had a huge win against Clara.  We were short 5 players on the night but the lads stuck to their game plan well, at a wet and drizzly Clara venue.  The score stood 1-8 to 0-3 in favour of the hoops at half time.  Clara failed to score in the second half as the saints ran out convincing winners 4-15 to 0-3.  No-one wants to rub salt into the wounds of the Clara team they deserve great credit for playing football to the final whistle unlike other teams when the game is out of their reach they resort to negative and spoiling tactics.  We have two wins in our group against St Vincents and Clara and one loss to Ferbane.  Our final game against Na Fianna is the all important one with a place in the semi final at stake.  St Rynaghs Minor A Team:  Conor Clancy, Derek Loonam, David Flynn, Graeme Lynch, Matthew Maloney, Conor Daly (Capt) 0-1, Ethan Mannion, Simon Og Lyons, Rory Wynne 0-2, Dean Flynn 0-2, Niall Wynne 1-4, David Fogarty 1-1, Paul Daly 0-1, Sean Dolan 1-2, Ryan Connolly 1-2.  Subs:  Michael Dolan for Paul Daly, Evan Conroy for Dean Flynn, James Daly for Simon Og Lyons, James Regan for Ethan Mannion.  Referee: Noel Cooney, Erin Rovers.


On the same evening at Cloghan GAA grounds our U12 footballers had a hugely impressive 4-10 to 1-1 win against Gracefield.  Team mentors John Daly, Mark Devery, Martin Hanamy and Cormac O’Connor are doing Trojan work with those young lads in their development as senior stars of the future.  St Rynaghs U12 Team:  Ciaran Flynn, Shane Hogan, Paul Donaghue, Paul Devery, Aaron Kenny 0-2, Shane Daly 0-1, Dara Tierney 0-2, Anthony Devery 0-1, Conor O’Sullivan, Sean Hanamy 1-1, Luke O’Connor 1-2, Jack Flynn 2-1, Kevin Rigney, Oran Clarke.  Referee:  Martin Walsh, Birr.


On Friday evening of last week at a wet and damp Tubber venue our U16 B footballers played Ballycumber/Tubber in our final group game.  The team management of Michael McIntyre, Alo Flynn and Paddy cooper made a couple of positional changes before the game which was to have a huge bearing on the outcome of the match.  Graeme Daly took up the goalkeeping position where he was outstanding.  Kealin Kelly in the unfamiliar position of left full back played a stormer.  Ben Coneeley at full back was a tower of strength.  Fergal Hanamy at No 6 and Aaron Daly when switched to full back came into his own.  Eoin Killian and Ronan Butler played themselves to a standstill in the middle of the park and five goal hero Owen Woods at right corner forward, Eamon Corcoran at No 10 his second half goal was a cracker.  Andy Flynn at full forward and the introduction of Eoin Flynn into the attack insured a great victory for the lads.  The half time score was 2-1 each.  In the second half Ballycumber/Tubber  scored 4 points and the green and white hoops scored an astonishing 7-1 to leave the final score St Rynaghs 9-2 Ballycumber/Tubber 2-5.  It is hard to believe when the same two sides met in the championship in Cloghan in April Ballycumber/Tubber won on a score line of 4-16 to 2-6.  At the same time well done to Ballycumber/Tubber  on playing the game in a fine sporting manner.  Our lads look forward to a semi final place with great eagerness and determination.  St Rynaghs U16B Team:  Graeme Daly, Kealin Kelly, Ben Coneeley, Aaron Daly, Jarlath Stevenson, Fergal Hanamy, Dara Tierney, Owen Killian, Ronan Butler1-0, Eamon Corcoran 1-0, Ryan Buckley, Enda Flynn, Owen Woods 5-0, Andy Flynn 1-1, Conor Kelly.  Subs: Eoin Flynn 1-1 for Ryan Buckley, Danny Devery for Enda Flynn, Seam Kilmartin for Jarlath Stevenson, Sean Hanamy for Conor Kelly, Aidan Cannon for Dara Tierney.  Referee:  Pauric Gallagher, Ballinagar.
