Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 09/03/20

 

 

 

Aislinn McMahon receives NMD Young Sportsperson of the year.

We are immensely proud to report that Aislinn McMahon was awarded the young sportsperson of the year in the recent Newry, Mourne and Down sports awards. Aislinn is a dual player in our club, and has been extremely successful at all levels. She not only plays for the club but also represents her school and county.  Her talent and true dedication to her sport has been recognised over the last few years, having been awarded two school’s All-Stars for her Camogie.  She is a modest player, who let’s her talent on the field do the talking. I also know Aislinn appreciates her individual awards such as these however she is always keen to point out that her sport is a team effort, and every score, game, tournament won comes for the collective efforts of those around her. We would like to congratulate Aislinn again, on representing our club and being a fantastic role model for our young players coming through. Well done and good luck with your recovery from your recent injury.
