SFL Division 1A

Cross V St Patrick’s Cullyhanna

A minutes silence for Eugene O’Callaghen and Tom McBride RIP preceded our Senior league fixture.
A highly competitive encounter with some fine scores.
We were first off the mark, the game only seconds old when a point each from kyle Carragher and Rían O’Neill give us an early lead. Cullyhanna converted two frees to level the match. Points from Oisín O’neill (2) and Stephen Morris put us in front once more before Cullyhanna scored two goals in quick succession to edge them in front. Scores from Kyle Carragher , Oisín O’Neill (2) and Colin O’Connor give us the lead once more by the narrowest of margins with ten on the clock until half time
Cullyhanna scored three points in as many minutes. With minutes remaining in the first half, points from Stephen Morris and Aaron Kernan kept the game close.
Seconds before the referee blew the whistle for half time , Cullyhanna scored a point to leave the score at half time ;
Cross 0-11 Cullyhanna 2-06
Three points each from both sides, Stephen Morris, Paudie Stuttard and Oisín O’Neill our scorers in the opening ten minutes of the second half  meant there was still little between the sides.
Rían converted a free midway through the second half to level the score.
Cullyhanna converted a free to edge in front before an Oisín O’Neill point from a free left it all square once again.
Cullyhanna pushed on in the final minutes, a point in normal time to give them the lead. As the game entered extra time we scored before Cullyhanna got the last score of the game , a point to seal the victory with the only bare minimum between the teams.
Cross 0-17  Cullyhanna 2-12.

Cycle Against Suicide

This Sunday, 29th April the Cycle Againgst Suicide Cycle race will stop briefly at the Rangers Hall on route to Newry.
The cyclists will arrive at 4.00pm approximately.
Some of our underage players will provide a guard of honour from Luke Murphys corner to the hall. Please come out and give the cyclists a warm welcome.
At least six cyclists from the area, some club members, are participating in the cycle.
Cycle against suicide is now in its fifth year. This fantastic event helps to bring awareness of all the support that is available for anyone who may be battling depression, self harm, at risk of suicide or has been bereaved by suicide.
Unfortunately our community like so many others across the island of Ireland have been touched by suicide
It is a great honour for the club that the cyclists are stopping with us. So keep the 29th April free so we can give the cyclists a good Crossmaglen Rangers welcome.

G4G 2018 Programme: the G4G programme has got off to a great start, with over 40 girls aged between 8 and 12 attending so far. A big shout out to the girls who took part in the hand pass challenge, and especially to Kelly Shields who managed 41 in 30 seconds, well done Kelly!

The programme 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. There is still time to register and get involved, just come along on Monday night 6-7pm. This week we will be outside on the council field, so we will meet all players, already registered and new faces, at the council changing rooms for 6pm. 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: 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:
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 Girls: This crew are continuing their winning strike, with another league victory. This week is was St. Paul’s in Lurgan, and it was a very high scoring game, with a final score of 6-13 to 5-01. Training continues on Wednesday evening at 6.30pm on the council field.

U12 & U14 Girls: U14s have their first match on Monday night against Silverbridge, all players must confirm their attendance, and good luck in your first game. All younger U12 players should attend G4G training as normal.
