April 28th 2015 Seneschalstown GFC Notes

The Senior team took to the field on Sunday with great expectations of picking up two points in the Hoganstand.com Senior Football Championship but by the time the final whistle sounded they walked off in disappointment following a 0-14 to 1-09 defeat to Skryne. This leaves them with no points from their opening two games but as has been proven before it’s possible to bounce back from a bad start and still have a good campaign.

They will look to pick up two League points on Thursday evening when taking on Donaghmore/Ashbourne in Fr. Tully Park at 19:00.

Junior B
The Junior B team continued their impressive start to the Seamus Connolly Catering JBFC on Sunday when comfortably accounting for the challenge of St. Colmcilles in Stamullen. Leading at half time they pulled away in the second half to eventually win by 5-18 to 0-09.

Junior D
The Junior D’s were another side to record a second win in the Championship over the weekend when they defeated Boardsmill in Round 2 of the JDFC in Walterstown by 2-11 to 3-04.
