Juvenile News.
 Under 13 Football League.
We travelled to Ballyanley on last Saturday to play Inniscarra in the Premier 2 Football League.  Despite having a few players injured the lads gave a good account of themselves. It was only in the last few minutes that the home team got on top to win by 2 5 to 0 4 and Ryan O Callaghan was unlucky to see a pile-driver hit the crossbar with 5 minutes left.
