Minors account for Ferns

Shelmaliers minor football team continued on their victorious way last week with an impressive 4:17 to 2:6 victory over Ferns.

With only two group games left they now look likely to make it to the Semi final stage, a great achievement for a group of players who would have struggled in previous years to progress to the knock out stages. They started brightly in Ferns and had 1:2 on the board before the home team scored. They continued to score freely right up to half time and at the break had an unassailable 10 point lead. The second half was a more even affair with the Ferns boys giving as good as they got. However the impressive display of the first half was enough to see the Shels lads to victory. Best on the day were Adam Whitmore, Neal Rossiter, James Cash, Simon Murphy and Niall Tobin. Their next Championship outing is this Wednesday 27th July at home to Starlights at 7:30pm. Your support for these extremely talented men would be greatly appreciated:
