The Club wishes to inform all team managers and members and users of the facilities that the defibrillator has been relocated to the new clubrooms.
All team managers are asked to take responsibility to ensure that windows are closed and doors are locked when leaving the old dressingrooms and to take in flags from the pitch after games. Also don't forget the proper use of bins.
Best wishes are extended to Fergal and Stephen and the Roscommon senior panel, especially Sean and David as they travel to Ruislip for the Connacht Senior Championship encounter with London and to all who are making the trip at the weekend. This includes the County U15 Development Squad which includes four Boyle Club members Eoin Lavin, Micheál Lavin, Colm Goldrick and Luke Brennan as well as mentors Seamus Gallagher and Bernard Shannon.
The U12s suffered defeat to both Clan na Gael and St Dominics during the week. The U12 B team also lost to Clan's B squad.The U14s lost narrowly to Clan na Gael on Thursday despite an excellent second half display. They will travel to Kiltoom to play St Brigids on Thursday evening. The U16s got a walkover from Clan na Gael and they secured an excellent two point win over Padraig Pearses in Woodmount on Sunday.They have now qualified for the league Division 1 semi final which will be played after the Junior Cert exams are finished.
The Feelystone junior team had a two point win over the home side in sun drenched Strokestown on Sunday. Boyle 1.12 Strokestown 1.10. See fixtures for details of their next game versus Kilbride. The Ros. co. Bd. website has a very good and quick detail of fixture results and league tables.
