Junior B Football Playoff

Athea B 0–8  Knockaderry 0–5

We caused a bit of a shock in the championship by defeating Knockaderry in Askeaton on Monday night last. We had 21 players togged out so we had a strong panel to choose from. The players were very determined to put in a good performance and took the game to the opposition from the start. We were on top in most positions with Paul Matthews on fire at full forward, Neilus Hunt dominant in midfield and Raymond Brouder excellent at centre back, we led at half time 0–5 to 0–1.

The second half was much closer and we had to defend a lot more but Donal Woulfe solid in goals and our two excellent 17 year olds Thomas Sexton and Jonathan Fitzgerald in the full back line we handled everything they threw at us. The team was delighted with the win which puts us into the West quarter final.

Team: Donal Woulfe, Thomas Sexton, Jonathan Fitzgerald, Shane Tierney, Brian Ahern, Raymond Brouder, Jason Quille, Neilus Hunt, Paddy Horgan, Jamie O’Brien, John Geoghegan, Mike Ahern, Patrick Kiely, Paul Matthews, Brian O’Connor. Subs: Thomas Hassett, Eoin McCarthy, Paul Griffin, Liam O’Brien, Emmet White and Dan McMahon.


County Intermediate Championship

Athea  0 06 St. Mary’s/Rathkeale 1 15.

The scoreline tells its own story as we were out-fought outclassed and out-ran by a very good Rathkeale side last Saturday evening. It was a hugely disappointing performance and makes qualification from the group very difficult Friday’s game against Claughan is now vital, a win would see us back in with a chance of qualification, a defeat would see us having to win our final game v Gerald Griffins to avoid getting involved in  a relegation play off.

Team v Rathkeale: Timmy Enright, Padraig Reidy, Tom Collins, Matthew Tierney, Denis Greaney, Mike Reidy, Mark O’Connor, Pat Ahern, Conor Mullane, Sean McGrath, Ger Collins, Jamie Collins, Kevin O’Mahony, Brian McKenna, Sean Ahern. Subs: Ger Ahern, Martin Chawke, Tom Greaney, John Cotter, Kevin O’Keefe, Joe Vaughan, Paul Collins, Jason Quille, Ryan Carroll, Mike Ahern.

 West Minor A Final:

The Athea/Mountcollins combination take on Daithi Broudairs in the  A final next Sunday evening in Foynes. The Noel Barry trained side are going for back to back titles. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
