Club Notes JournalistOmagh

Winning games – It is shaping up to be yet another busy weekend of club activities with a number of important games scheduled. However pride of place goes to another last-minute-winning-goal performance last Saturday when Orlagh Mullin hit the net late in the game to secure a dramatic Ulster Ladies Intermediate Championship victory over Mullahoran in Healy Park. The girls now play Monaghan in the semi-final on the 19th October.

Big weekend for Reserves – There was only one league game played last weekend when the senior men travelled to Strabane. While the home side claimed victory, the club extend their appreciation to the Sigersons club for their hospitality and reception for our players. This Sunday, the Reserves are on the cusp of winning the Division One league title but they must secure a win against Eglish in their final game to guarantee league honours. The Reserves have played admirably all year, winning twelve of their fourteen league games so far, and it would be good to have a strong support in Eglish for the boys at 2.15pm. The game will be followed by the senior’s final league game of the season at 3.45pm.
