March 10th 2016 Seneschalstown GFC Notes

Round 3 of the League saw us have to forfeit home advantage for the second time in the League this season last Saturday when they ended up travelling to take on Skryne. The concession of three goals in the first nine minutes proved too high a hurdle to jump despite racking up a fine tally of sixteen points over the hour.

One notable feature of the game was the return to action of Adam Gleeson who played his first game for the club since the 2014 Junior B Championship Final following a sabbatical from the game in 2015.
