U19 Championship Final



Cross V Mullaghbawn

All roads led to the Athletic Grounds on Sunday afternoon for the Division 1, U19 Championship Final. Our opponents were Mullaghbawn. From the outset, we were in control of this game. Seconds after the ball was thrown in by Oisin McKee, Shane Gallagher had registered our opening score, a point. A point each from Ryan Martin and Ronan Fitzpatrick quickly followed. Mullaghbawn got their opening score, a point from the boot of Fergal O’Brien. The remainder of the half, it was all one way traffic  3-6 in total scored, some of the scores were textbook,  Ronan (0-2), Shane (0-1), Aaron (0-1), Bernard (1-1), Caolan (1-0), Jack (1-1), and the cross bar hit a couple of times to leave the score at the mid way point;

Cross 3-9 Mullaghbawn 0-1

The second half began as the first half had played out, Ronan had a goal registered in the opening minutes. The following minutes were evenly matched score by score, both sides added four points to their tally, Ronan (2), Jack and Ryan. Again we went on a scoring spree, a hat-rick of points for Aaron O’ Neill and a goal for Caolan Finnegan to stretch our lead.  Mullaghbawn’s scored the last score of the game just as normal time approached.

Cross 5-16 Mullaghbawn 0-6

Well done lads  on a super team performance, we are so proud of you all.

Cross: Conor Derry, Pearse Larkin, Thomas Og Duffy, Jamie Wallace, Aaron Haughey, Harry Cumiskey, Ronan McAlister, Ronan Fitzpatrick 1-5 (2f), Pearse Blessing, Shane Gallagher 0-2, Bernard Cassidy 1-1, Ryan Martin 0-2, Jack Crummie 1-2, Caolan Finnegan 2-0, Aaron O’Neill 0-4. Subs: Eugene McEntee for R. McAlister, Fiannan Moley for R. Martin, Martin Og Harland for J. Wallace, Jason Hanratty for J. Crummie.

Ulster SFC Club Prelim Rd



Cross V Ballybay

A packed Athletic Grounds was the setting for our clash with Monaghan champions, Ballybay. Noel Mooney from Cavan was the man in the middle. The game was only minutes old when high drama ensued, a penalty awarded to Ballybay, the decision to award a penalty not clear but Ballybay struck it well and this give them an early lead. Our opening score from play came in  the seventh minute, Cian the scorer. Seconds later, a super pass from Jamie to Rian who hit a rasper  of a shot into the Ballybay net. We now led by the bare minimum. Both sides traded points, Caolan from play. As the game entered the second quarter, two points without reply, Jamie and Ronan, extended our lead. Drew Wylie slotted over a point followed by a point from Cian. The final scores of the half were Ballybays, scored by Paul Finlay and at the midway point, the difference was just one.

Cross 1-5 Ballybay 1-4

Not long after the second period of play had commenced, Ballybay had equalised the game. They pushed on, three points one after another in the space of three minutes, to give them the lead once more. Caolan reduced it back to two with a super score but this was to be short lived, Ballybay scored their second goal, points from Dessie Ward, Paul Finlay and Christopher McGuinness from a mark, give them a strong lead with fifteen minutes to go. We had a number of missed opportunities in the last quarter, points from Cian and Rian (2) were registered but it was too be Ballybay’s day.

Hard luck lads!

Cross 1-9  Ballybay 2-11

Armagh SFC Final

Cross V Granemore



The opening score of the final came in the second minute, a point for Granemore from a free converted. Cian replicated this a minute later followed by a point from play for Paul and Cian’s second point, the result of a free. Granemore got their second point and with ten minutes gone, we led by one. We had a number of missed opportunities but just as the clock struck the midway point of the first half, we went on a scoring spree, a super strike from Rian sailed over the bar, a further 1-2 followed in the space of five minutes, Rian (0-1) and Caolan (1-1), the goal coming as a result of a quick free kick from Rian to Caolan who struck it superbly into the back of the opposition’s net. The closing minutes of the half, we scored 0-3 to 0-2, Cian (0-2,1F) and Callum (M) to leave the score at half time;

Cross 1-9 Granemore 0-4

Seconds after Shane Murphy had thrown the ball in, Cian had a point added to the board to stretch our lead. Granemore then had their brightest spell of the match, four points without reply (1F) to narrow the gap to five and over twenty minutes to go. But this lead of five was to be short lived, the boys took control of the game, five points one after the other, Dara, Rian, Cian (0-2,1F) and  Ronan, some of these scores were the finest scores of the game and with the finishing line and Gerry Fegan in sight, we were in the driving seat. Granemore’s last scores were two points in quick succession but we finished the game in style, points from Fitzy, Cian, Chris and Rian were registered and as the final whistle blew, a sea of black and amber amassed onto the pitch.

Cross 1-19 Granemore 0-10

Well done lads on a super performance. Congratulations to the entire team and management, Stephen, Jim, Tony & Paul & back room team.
