SFL Division 1A

Armagh Harps V Cross

On Sunday afternoon we travelled to a cold and blustery Abbey Park in Armagh to play County Champions, Armagh Harps in the senior football league.
We got off to a fantastic start , a free converted by Aaron Kernan followed quickly by our first goal of the match , thanks to Mickey McNamee who reacted quickly to a bad kick out by the Harps goalie and he placed the ball in the back of the net. Harps got off the mark with a point.
Points from the O’Neill brothers , Oisín (2) and Rían (2) increased our lead.
With the game only ten minutes old, Colin O’Connor got our second goal followed by Aaron’s second point of the match.We exchanged a trio of points with Harps, Paudie Stuttard, Rían and Oisín O’Neill the point scorers for us. With the game entering the last ten minutes a great pass from Paudie Stuttard to Kyle Carragher resulted in our third goal of the match.
Harps responded with a goal and point to reduce the deficit but we finished the half with points from Rían and Paudie to leave us in a commanding position at half time.
Harps 1-05 Cross 3-11
Rian O’Neill opened the scoring in the second half with a point. Kyle scored a point before Harps got a trio of points (2,F).
We pushed on with points from Rían (2) and Paudie (2) and midfielder Stephen Morris.
Harps registered two more points before Mickey Mc got his second goal of the day just as the game hit the 60th minute.

Armagh Harps 1-10 Cross 4-18

Crossmaglen Rangers LGFA

G4G 2018 Programme: Yippee! The time has come, our G4G programme kicks off this week! The weather forecast is not looking great for Monday night, so we are going to take no chances. The first week of the programme will run in St. Oliver Plunketts’ Youth Club, a big thank you in advance to them for the use of their facilities. We are looking forward to seeing all of our young Rangers get involved, as it aims to introduce young girls to gaelic football, but teaching newbies the basics, while also encouraging more experienced players to lead and take part in the Ladies game. The cost of the programme is £10 per child, which covers the cost of the gaelic4girls jersey, which all girls receive at the end of the programme.

Ladies Football Registration Morning Sunday April 22nd 10am to 12pm (Rangers Hall back room):

Its that time of the year again, and we need all old players to renew their membership. The cost of registration is £30 for adult members and £20 for the underage player. Registration forms have been given out by team managers, and must be returned with monies to Marion on Elaine. The deadline for registrations is April 30th, all players must be fully paid by this date in order to train or play any match with the club.

Team information:

The seniors met Forkhill in the next round of the league on Saturday evening, they were leading with about five minutes to go, when Forkhill got a penalty which brought them Level, and unfortunately followed this up with two easy points. This meant our girls were beaten, by two points at the final whistle. Hard luck girls and good luck with this weeks games. Senior & Minor squads continue to train on Tuesday evening, Peter and Maria will be in touch by message about venue. All old and new faces are welcome, just get in touch with Maria or Peter.

U16 & U14 Players:

The U16 girls were out again this week, and keen to meet Middletown after being narrowly beaten by them last year. Unfortunately this meeting was not to be theirs either, as the final score was 2-09 to 2-05, to Middletown. There’s no games scheduled for this week, but Frank and Paul will be in touch about training and other arrangements.
