Our u13 boys played a well matched game of football against Magheracloone in Cross on Saturday. Both teams had their first outing of the year and great teamwork was put on display by our boys. An entertaining and sporting game of football. Well done to both teams.
Our U21 players played in their final game of the inaugural U21 league in Kingscourt on Bank Holiday Monday. Unfortunately 48 hours after our victory against Killinkere our lads were unable to progress to the final of the competition, as an impressive Kingscourt team won comfortably on a scoreline of 3;19 to 2;9.
The value of this competition was demonstrated by the passion shown by the large number of players who enjoyed playing in a competitive league game. This can only help to further develop the playing base in all clubs who have entered a team in this competition. All our U21 players will now progress to playing more regular competitive football with our Junior B Division 1 team or for our senior team.
Mullagh Sports Partnership Development:
Work behind the scene has continued on all fronts with regards to our proposed new development.
– We are awaiting confirmation on the relocation of an ESB substation on the Mullagh town side of our site. This is essential to accommodate our proposed plans.
– The tendering process for the development of a new adult pitch has commenced.
We plan to commence work this Spring and have this pitch ready for action in the Summer of 2020.
– The planning for a biodiversity walkway around the perimeter of the site is under progressing. We are in the process of receiving tenders from consultants interested in producing a feasibility study for this exciting project.
You will be able to view aerial images of the site via our social media and website soon.
