On this coming Friday night March the23rd we play the first round of the 2012 East Cork Junior FootballChampionship. The game is fixed fir Carrigtwohill, under lights at 7.30pm. Ourfootball form to date has been very patchy. We've been playing in the East CorkJFL Division 2 while our opponents Aghada are competing in Division 1 of the Avondhu Imokilly

Inter Divisional League. Our four game played to date have seenvictories over Castlelyons and Castlemartyr and defeats by Glenville andDungourney. Aghada are Senior in Football so many of the players available tothem for the Junior Side will have played at Senior level last year. They arethe strongest football club in East Cork fielding three teams each weekend withno problem. Our last outing was against Dungourney on Wednesday night weekunder lights in the East Cork League. Dungourney came out on top on a scoreline of 2-06 to 0-08 points. The team and scorers was  as follows : Frank Hogan, Jacob Macak, Brinnie O’ Driscoll, JimO’ Keefe, Jason Pratt, Shane Kearney, Mike Kearney, Sean Ryan, Sean O’Brien(0-02), Steven Boyce, Terry Broderick (0-03), Colm O’ Keefe(0-03), StephenO’ Leary, Alan O’ Keefe, Damien Buckley. Subs Used. Kieran Wolfe and RitchieFoley.
