Soccer notes:

Reserve cup result: Ballyhar 3-0 Castlegregory Celtic. After a month with no game, Sunday saw castke travel to Ballyhar for a tough encounter which saw Castle left ruing missed chances while the home side capitalised on their chances to advance in the reserve cup. The positives were that several younger lads got good game time under the belt and despite the final score Castle created plenty of chances but just couldn't hit the net. Best of luck to Ballyhar in the next round.

Fixture: no fixture at time of print, see Facebook page for updates.

Congratulations: to our neighbours CSCB on their victory in the Division 2B final last Sunday.
