League Game v Glencar/Manorhamilton
The Gaels made the short trip to Manorhamilton on Saturday evening and took on the County Champions in the Senior League.
This turned out to be a very entertaining game and both sides will feel that they could have won. The Gaels came away with a deserved share of the points.
The home side started well but the Gaels soon matched them and were unlucky to go in at the break a point behind, 0-5 to 0-4.
In the second half the home side went in front by five points and looked set to win the game, but the Gaels showed great character to come back and draw level.
The final score was Glencar/Manorhamilton 0-11, Melvin Gaels 0-11.
This was another great team performance by the Gaels, well done to all.
Thanks to the Glencar/Manorhamilton Club for the food after the game.
The Club extends deepest sympathy to the Gillespie Family on the death of Michael’s mother Teresa in Manorhamilton and also to the Foley Family, Main Street on the death of John.
