ABP sponsored Ferrybank GAA Weekly Notes

Ferrybank/Erin’s Own combined team exited the Eddie O' Donnell sponsored competition last Sunday afternoon in Gracedieu defeated by Passage on a scoreline of 1-09 to 1-04. Aided with the breeze in the opening half, the combined side squandered scoring opportunities, hitting some bad wides. On the other hand, Passage used the ball was more effectively and wisely, and this was reflected in the half time score of 0-07 to 0-03, with Mark Shanahan scoring the combined sides points all from placed ball.
Hoping for an improvement in the second-half, the combined side were dealt a blow, when a long ball into their defence wasn’t cleared, resulting in a goal for Passage to extend their lead. Another point from Mark Shanahan reduced the gap, and with fifteen minutes remaining, the combined side got a lifeline, with John Ahern latching onto a loose ball, and put the sliothar to the net, to reduce the gap to four points.
The hope that this might spur on the lads didn’t materialise, as Passage defended well, not giving any chances to the Ferrybank/Erin’s Own forwards, and they closed out the game with a pointed free, running out comfortable winners on the day.

Our under 7/8s finished the year off in style last Monday night,with two matches against Glenmore in their fabulous indoor arena.
The lads played really well scoring and defending excellently in two very fast tough games. Well done to everybody!
The coaches would like to thank the kids and parents for their super efforts over the season and we look forward to seeing everybody in 2018, maybe we might even see a few new faces.
Thanks again!
