Armagh SFC QF;

Cross V Mullaghbawn

Our seniors had an early start in the Athletic Grounds, a half one throw in with Tony O’Hare the man in the middle. An Oisin O’Neill point opened the scoring of the contest in the fourth minute which was quickly followed by a Mullaghbawn score to level matters. This was to be the only time the game would be level. A super score from Dara O’Callaghan signalled the start of a scoring spree, which saw us register 2-2 before Mullaghbawn scored their second point, (Oisin and Tony K, the goal scorers) to give us a commanding lead. As the minutes ticked down to the break, it was all one way traffic, a further 1-3 scored to a single point from Mullaghbawn, Mel the scorer of our third goal, to leave the score at the break;

Cross 3-07 Mullaghbawn 0-03

With the second half just seconds old, Rian had slotted over a point which was quickly followed by points from Cian and Mel. Mullaghbawn scored two points in as many minutes to reduce the deficit. Another trio of points (Oisin, Rían and Cian) and as the game entered the last quarter, we were firmly in the driving seat. Mullaghbawn added two points, both from frees. An Oisin O’ Neill point preceded a penalty awarded to us, Cian struck the penalty, the goalkeeper saved it, the ball rebounded and Cian finished it into the back of the net. The final minutes saw us score four points, two points coming from the boot of substitute, Odhran Kieran. Mullaghbawn scored three points, two the result of frees awarded.

Cross 4-18 Mullaghbawn 0-10

A draw will take place on Monday night to decide the semi final pairings.

Armagh SFC Rd1; Cross V Silverbridge

A sultry Athletic Grounds was the setting for our first round clash of the Armagh senior football championship against neighbours, Silverbridge Harps. Before referee Ollie Hearty threw the ball in, a minutes silence was observed for the late Goretti Campbell, Silverbridge. It was the opposition who settled  quickly, three points in as many minutes to give them an early lead. Cian converted a free in the seventh minute to get us off the mark. A number of missed opportunities for us followed in what was a very fast moving encounter. Two super strikes, one from Oisin and the other from his Brother, Rian sailed over the bar to level matters  for a brief period before Silverbridge edged in front once more with a point, the result of a free. Just before the first water break, we moved the ball well down the field, a super pass from Oisin to Mel to Oisin who struck the ball into the Bridge net to give us our first goal of the afternoon. Seconds after play resumed following the water break, Silverbridge had a point registered to leave just the bare minimum between the sides. Again both sides had a number of wides, as the game entered the last ten minutes of the half, both sides traded points, Dara O’Callaghan our scorer. As the half drew to a close, two unanswered points, Rian and Cian (F) meant the goal was the difference at the break.

Cross 1-06 Silverbridge 0-06

Cross V Ballymacnab


On Friday night we welcomed Ballymacnab to a wet and dull St Oliver Plunkett Park. With some of our regulars injured, a number of young players made their senior debut. The opening quarter saw points from Mel, Dara, Rian and Stephen, with Ballymacnab registering two points. This bright start was quickly extinguished when the Nab took full control of the game at after a Jack Grugan goal quickly followed by a point triggered the start of a blistering scoring spree and this set the pattern for how the game proceeded until Kevin Falloon blew the full time whistle. Next up is Armagh Harps on Friday night.

Cross 0-7  Ballymacnab 7-9

Maghery V Cross

Sunday afternoon Stephen Kernan’s men had their first outing of the 2020 Armagh league when they travelled to Maghery. A very different situation than what we are used to, with no spectators being allowed into the ground. Johnny McKeever registered the first score of the afternoon with a point in the second minute. Seconds later, at the oppositie end of the pitch, Maghery were awarded a penalty which they scored to give them an early lead. An Oisin O’Neill point brought it back to one. Both sides had a number of missed opportunities before one point for each team left at the score at the midway point of the first half;

Maghery 1-1 Cross 0-3

Not long after the game had resumed following the water break, Maghery had the ball in our net once again to extend their lead. The final minutes of the first half were an even affair with some super scores coming from both sides, points from Rian (2), Johnny and Oisin (2) were matched by the home side to leave the score at the break:

Maghery 2-6 Cross 0-8

With the second half  only seconds old, Stefan Forker slotted the ball over the bar to strengthen their lead. We responded, four points without reply. Dara O’Callaghan (2F), Tony & Oisin and   with less than ten minutes to go, the bare minimum once again separated the sides. In the dying minutes, Maghery scored a point from a ‘45, Paul Hughes scored a point in injury time but we just couldn’t get the equaliser and it was Maghery to secured the points. Hard luck to the entire squad.

Maghery 2-08 Cross 0-13
