Cross Rangers LGFA

Championship preparation are going strong in our Senior camp. Packing in lots of training sessions both on and off the field.
Plus we had our inaugural LGFA fun day in Lough Ross this week. It was a fantastic, fun packed evening. Thanks so much to everyone involved in making it happen.
Also a huge congratulations to all our A & AS level students who got their results this week.


Big BBQ at Loughross
On Wednesday night, we took some time off training, to have some fun. Over 200 players, siblings and parents gathered to enjoy our local beauty spot, Lough Ross. We enjoyed a BBQ, toasting mashmallows, making s’mores and many even braved it and took to the water. We had swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking.  On the night we took the opportunity to get a photo of all out underage team members, G4M&Os group and founding members Brenda Clarke and Patricia Hughes.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our amazing underage coaches.  Special thank you to Conor Martin and Colm Caherty for assisting with the water safety on the night.
U14.5 Championship Division 1 Final
Taking on a strong Clann Eireann side, they girls worked hard as a team and went in at half time down by 3 points. They decided that they would not hand it easy to Clann Eireann, and continued to put Clann Eireann under pressure. However, the Clann’s had brought their scoring boots and unfortunately came away with a win.
 While our players were initially disappointed, we are unbelievably proud of our U14.5 squad who have qualified for the county final.  This squad were promoted from Division 2 to Division 1 this season, and impressively made it to the final.  This is a further sign of development and progression for this cohort of players
U12.5 Championship
Our squad have had issues all season with injuries but we were glad to have everyone back and ready for action in the championship this weekend, against Armagh Harps.
The wind was against us in the first half, which put us under pressure. Our backs step up to the challenge push Armagh Harps out wide, and making sure there were no easy scores. Aoibhe, Myla and Katie held the full back line, while Makenzie, Alesha and Caomihe ensured that every ball broken down was brought out and down the field. This was of course supported by our amazing Goalie, Lauren, so pulled off a number of an impressive saves.
Our Midfielders, Carragh Donnelly and Carragh McShane had to push hard to contest every ball, and we wouldn’t have asked for more from them. They challenged hard and got the ball up to our forwards, who made use of it!  We have lovely scores created and supported by Katie, Caitlin, Kaitlin, Zara. Laurisa, Makenzie and then out subs Sophie and Rachel.
Unfortunately we didn’t come away with the win. We do have one more competition this year, the Owen Reel Blitz, and we will be preparing for this the next few weeks.
Training continues on Wednesday 6-7pm.
Gaelic for Mother’s & Others: The G4M&Os squad have been out representing the club again at the local blitz held by Dromintee this time. They participated in round robin games, the final game ended up in a penalty shoot out. Well done to all involved.

We are in full preparation for the Championship, and part of that will involved some team bonding activities. Keep an eye on the WhatsApp groups for more information.We would like to remind all members that it is essential to be registered with the LGFA through Foireann. For more information contact Shannon Clarke.
