Last Saturday’s closely contested senior league game with Derrylaughan ended in a one-point win for Derrylaughan. It is to the credit of both teams that they put on a competitive game in spite of the heavy rain. Our experienced men played with such assurance that we were always in the hunt. The enthusiasm and talent of our younger players nearly brought us victory. Our next game will be next weekend with Trillick with our game against Donaghmore finishing our programme the following weekend.

Our U16 boys fell to a heavy defeat last Saturday at the hands of a very impressive Donaghmore team in the league quarter final. However, they bounced back and had a good win over An Charraig Mhór last night, Tuesday, in the juvenile championship quarter-final. They will now face Donaghmore in the championship semi-final this Saturday. Details to be confirmed.

Our U13 boys had a good game with Dromore and in spite of defeat were impressive.

Our U16 girls defeated Drumragh in the championship quarter final on Sunday and are now away to Moortown this Sunday in the semi-final at 11:00am.

Our Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others team participated in the national blitz in Dublin last Saturday along with over 2,500 other enthusiastic players. This impressive display was a highlight of our first year of taking part.

Our U18 boys bridged a very big gap when they won the Minor Championship with a well-earned victory over Eglish. Club members and supporters enjoyed the triumph at a time of gloom in the club. The players also enjoyed the support of an enthusiastic crowd. That was on Saturday evening and the senior men went into action in the Championship on Sunday.

For a period in the first half it looked as if we could have a double weekend celebration but it was not to be. Coalisland got back on terms and gradually forged ahead. Our efforts to rein them in were thwarted when just the post and then the cross-bar stopped what looked like certain goals. Coalisland moved ahead to win a place in the semi-final. Our players and management were disappointed not just at losing but in not doing themselves justice on the day. That’s what makes it so disappointing. The players and management acknowledge the support they got on match-day and in the lead up to it. Next weekend, will see a return to league action with three games to play.

Our U16 boys play Eglish in the Championship on Saturday at 11:30am in Ballinamullan and are scheduled to play Donaghmore in the league quarter-final next Wednesday, 2nd October.

The U16 girls defeated Dromore on Sunday and they are at home to Sperrin Óg this Sunday.

The vast and impressive display of heartfelt sympathy and support at the wake and funeral of Tommy Nugent shows just how strong our Association is and central it is to the life of the community. Our games and competitions and the cups and trophies are important but at the heart of the Association are people – our people – members and supporters, young and not so young, enjoying the good times and helping each other through times of sorrow and set-backs. All sections of our club came together in a strong show of solidarity to greatly assist with Tommy’s wake and funeral. Tommy would have been proud of them. A big thank you to the clubs of Tyrone and clubs from neighbouring counties for their support. Their support took so many forms and all of it was so generously given. As the workers were often heard to say, you couldn’t do enough for Tommy. Think of all the good he did for so many. Go ndéanaí Dia trócaire air.

The minor boys take on Eglish in the County Championship Final on Saturday at 3:00pm in Loughmacrory.

The U16 girls are away to Moortown tomorrow night, Thursday, and at home to Dromore on Sunday in the League.

The juvenile boys have a Championship match with Eglish to play. Details to be confirmed.

Better late than never. Our senior men left it late but finally ran out winners over Donaghmore. They will now face Coalisland in the championship quarter-final. This is a repeat of last year’s final. We will be hoping for a better result this time. We struggled at times last Saturday but always looked as if we could make it and sure enough, we did with a burst of scoring in the last ten minutes.

Tomorrow night, Thursday, it is the turn of the U18 boys to take centre stage, when they play Eglish in the Minor County Final at 7:30pm in Healy Park. Our boys have prepared well and are determined to fight hard for the title. They would appreciate a good turn-out of support like we had in Carrickmore last Saturday.

The senior league game against Omagh is scheduled for Sunday at 12:00 noon in Healy Park.

We hosted two ladies’ games last Sunday and a big thank you to all who helped with the smooth running of the games.

The first throw-in is at 3:30pm and stewards are asked to be in position from 2:30pm.

We hosted an underage girls’ blitz on Saturday morning and on Sunday our U12 girls performed extremely well at the Moy Tournament reaching the semi-final. So, all in all, it was a very busy weekend for the club but thanks to our willing workers it was very successful.

Well done to club representatives Kailey McCaul, Chloe McCaffrey and Maebh O’Connor who played for Tyrone U13s last weekend in an Ulster U13 Development blitz.

The U16 boys had a good win over Strabane last week in the juvenile league and they have been drawn against Eglish in the championship.

The U16 girls defeated Drumragh last night, Tuesday, and play Moortown next Tuesday.

Well done to our representatives who were involved in the county hurling finals at the weekend. The senior final was a great advertisement for the small-ball game and the numbers involved in the junior final were very encouraging.
