Ulster SFC Semi Final

Cross V Gaoth Dobhair

A very cold and blustery Healey Park was the setting for our Ulster Senior football Semi Final against Donegal’s, Goath Dobhair.
The opening minutes were an even affair, two points a piece from each side. Johnny Hanratty scored a point to give us a narrow lead before Gaoth Dobhair got their first goal. Rían O’Neill converted a free to bring it back to a one point game.
The Donegal men went on a scoring spree, scoring 1-03.  Kyle scored a point seconds before Goath Dobhair were awarded a penalty which they scored to put them in a commanding position with just minutes left until the break. Those final minutes we scored four unanswered points to leave the score at the break;
Cross 0-09 Gaoth Dobhair 3-05
The start of the second half saw us reduced to fourteen men when Johnny Hanratty was sent off. The opening minutes of the second half saw both sides register two points on the board before Gaoth Dobhair scored their fourth goal to increase and strengthen their lead and to put the game firmly out of our reach, the final quarter saw some fine scores from both sides. It was to be Gaoth Dobhair’s day and they won on a score line of;
Cross 0-16 Gaoth Dobhair 4-11
Hard luck to the entire squad and management. We are so proud of you all.
Congratulations to Gaoth Dobhair.

Ulster AIB Championship QF

Cross V Coalisland
Having rained for most of the day,  conditions were slippy in the Athletic Grounds on Saturday evening for our Ulster AIB quarter final clash with Tyrone champions, Coalisland.
Johnny McKeever got the opening score of the game in the second minute to get the scoring underway.
Coalisland got two points in quick succession, one from a free to give them a narrow lead with ten gone on the clock.
Three unanswered points from us, Mickey McNamee , Rían O’Neill (‘45) and Stephen Morris put us in front once again in this tense encounter.
Coalisland converted  a free to narrow the gap to the bare minimum before high drama ensued. A second yellow for Coalisland’s  Brian Toner left the Tyrone side down to fourteen players, seconds later they were reduced to thirteen when Eoghan Hampsey recieved a straight red.
Both sides exchanged points, Rían O’Neill our scorer after converting a free and with just minutes remaining in the half one still separated the sides.
As the game entered injury time, Coalisland got the equaliser, the result of a free before Rían O’Neill slotted a free over the bar to leave the score at the break;
Cross 0-6 Coalisland 0-5

Armagh Ladies Division 2 Minor Championship Final

Cross V Granemore

The minor ladies took the field in Carrickcruppen to contest the Division 2 Championship Final. The game got off to a good start with Caomhinn O’Neill opening the scores for Cross with a well worked pointed. Cross fought the kick out at Shauna O’Callaghan, unfortunately the ball dropped short and into the keepers hands.Granemore carried the ball, and delivered it to their number 14, who was being marked by Faye Fitzpatrick. Faye worked hard to divert her first scoring attempt but it wasn’t long until she opened their score board.

Aoife McDermott’s strong kick out, consistently found a amber and black jersey, and this allowed us to produce from quality scores. Alexandra Clarke worked a point, then with the support of Shauna, followed it up with a goal. This was the start of a scoring spree from Cross, and when the half time whistle blew across led 3.07 to 0.03.

The second half commenced, Cross again dominating play, two quick points from Alex and Caoimhe. This set the pace for the second half, and across managed to find the net five more times, before Granemore managed to produce a score. Cross made good use of their subs, and just onto the pitch Kellie Shields scored a point.  The final whistle blew with a score of 7.15 to 1.04.

Crossmaglen Rangers Club Notes 22/10/18.



Mr Paddy Kindlon Senior

When news broke on Saturday night that Paddy has passed away, we were immensely sad. Paddy, a true gentleman was devoted to the Crossmaglen Rangers Club.
Last year, when we celebrated twenty years from our first All Ireland win, I went to visit our President. Despite his frail health, Paddy was his usual friendly self and what a warm and hearty welcome I received.
Paddy had his club tie on and he reminisced about those glory days along with friends Noel & the Bishop. The craic was ninty! The visit couldn’t be complete without a photo shoot.
