Under 12 team & management

It was smiles all round for our under 12's and their entourage as team captain Niall Mc Glynn raised the Division 4 Summer league shield at Kilronan Park in Ballyfarnon on Saturday last. This was a final which almost fell victim to Friday night's heavy rain as the original venue of the Abbey Park in Boyle was withdrawn but John O'Connor and Grainne Wallace at St. Ronan's pulled out all the stops to have their pitch available and prepared in a very short time. Thank you to John and Grainne and all at St. Ronan's. It was a very competitive and entertaining encounter with Éire Óg fighting through to the final whistle but thankfully it was the St. Michael's team who finished on top. Well done to the team, management and parents and thanks to all who helped out at the celebrations in the Complex.

The St. Michael's/St. Ronan's under 20's turned around a 4 point half time deficit to win by 8 points in their face off with Kilglass/St. Barry's at Kilglass on Sunday.

Update 29/10/17

Apart from the odd patch of fog playing conditions were ideal at the floodlit pitch in Ballyforan on Friday night last for the division 4 minor boys final between St. Michael's/St. Ronan's and St. Croan's. Unfortunately it was the large crowd who travelled from the extreme north of the county who left this fixture disappointed and frustrated. In the end two points separated the sides following a high scoring entertaining match. St. Croan's 5-09 St. Michael's/St. Ronan's 4-10.

SuperValu are running a new initiative with  local GAA clubs, including St Michael's. It's called Behind the Ball. It's geared at getting all under 8s active. What the club receive are First Touch footballs for all under 8s. How does it work? Every time you spend 20e in SuperValu Boyle or Carrick, you will receive  a printed voucher to drop in the St Michael's Club entry box in the stores. When 2000 vouchers have been collected the club is awarded the footballs. It's as simple as that!

Best wishes to Diarmuid Regan and the Roscommon county under 17 football panel and management in the Connacht Final next Saturday. Best wishes also to the senior county team in Salthill on Sunday.
