Mon. 1 am.....The following were €20 winners at the most recent Club Lotto draw which was held in Mattimoes recently;- Bernard Hickey, Michael Costello, Pat Carty, Kevin Young, Michael Smith (Jnr), Padraic Callaghan, David Connolly, Maura Callaghan and Aoife Mullen. The house prize was won by Evelyn O'Donnell. The jackpot wasn't won and it will be at €2,100 for the next draw which will be held in Creighton's on Saturday night next. Team A will be in charge.
The highlight of the wekend was the thrilling draw which was achieved by the National Automation Limited Minors in the Division 1 County Final in Kiltoom on Sunday. It was a game that could have gone either way and supporters will have another opportunity to see Boyle and Strokestown do battle on Saturday next at 6.30pm in Kiltoom. The Club extends its best wishes for a speedy return to action of Brian Furey who suffered an accidental injury in the game. Thanks is extended to the St Brigids Club for the manner in which they facilitated all aspects of Sunday's Finals.
The National Automation Limited U21s will have no fixture this coming weekend because of the Minor Replay. They will, however, play Castlrea St Kevins in Boyle on October 27th and Clan na Gael at a neutral venue on 3rd November. The re-fixture with Roscommon Gaels will be announced shortly.
The Cooney Motors/ Cooney's Centra junior are awaiting the fixing of their North Junior B Semi Final.
The Keenan Cup Final between Strokestown and Eire Og was postponed last week as a mark of respect to the late Liam Elwood, Gorthaganny. The Club extends its sympathy to his family.
The Club is still awaiting details of Garda Cup fixtures.

Ladies Club;
The Boyle Ladies bowed out of the Connacht Junior Championship on Sunday when they went down to St Farnan's of Sligo in the Connacht Semi Final on Sunday. In recent games the Boyle girls have been making strong starts, but on this occasion the opposite was the case, and were eleven points in arrears after fifteen minutes. They recovered well for the remainder of the game and finished up losing by three points. Thanks to the panel of girls and their management for having given us a memorable year in which they won the County Junior 'A' Title and achieved promotion to Intermediate ranks for next year and winning a Connacht Championship game.
