Club Notes 12th August 2018

Seniors & Reserves

The seniors faced Ballinderry at home on Saturday afternoon and started brightly, controlling the opening quarter and opened up a 3 point lead after a Kevin Sweeney goal in the 13th minute however the team were left to rue lapses in concentration and a bit of luck as Ballinderry scored 3 of their own before the half time whistle to open a 7 point lead.  The team were unable to take advantage of the strong breeze in the second half and their misery was compounded with a missed penalty midway through the half.  Full time score Newbridge 1-11 Ballinderry 4-11.

Newbridge scorers were K Sweeney (1-00), Pete McGrogan (0-05), C Brooks, C Doherty, D McColgan, T Burke, O McGlone and E Burke (0-01 each).

The club wishes Kevin Sweeney a speedy recovery following a knee injury picked up in the first half.
