Congratulations to The Abbey Vocational School and our own 8 lads on becoming u13.5 Ulster champions. It was brilliant to such a strong club representation in the team. Great to see a young Naomh Bríd man Aaron Mc Grory Captain an ulster winning team. Well done to all involved #NAOMHBRÍDABÚ💚🖤
The lads got a hard earned 1-5 to 0-8 draw away to Red Hughs yesterday in an intriguing and physical game of football. Red Hughs got of to a better start in the first half and went in at the break 3 up. Naomh Brid battle hard in the 2nd half and clawed backed the deficit thanks to a Gary Mc Cafferty goal soon after the lads went ahead with a Darragh Brogan free but with only 40 seconds left on the clock Red Hughs won a free and slotted over the bar. The lads will feel this was game they could of got more from after missing a few good opportunities they created but overall the lads can be proud of that 2nd half performance and taking a point from Killygordan.
Once again it was great to see a massive support down for the lads and really gives them a great boost, they will need ye all out again in full force next Sunday in Trummon as we welcome near neighbours Naomh Ultan. More detail to follow

The Reserves unfortunately came up short against a very strong and youthful Red Hughs side who are sitting pretty at the top of the table with 5 wins from 5 The game was played 13 aside which left alot space on the pitch. The first 20 minutes with a close affair with our lads putting up a good battle but with the fitness and the pace of this youthful Red Hughs side the eventually pulled away. The lads put in a hard shift and never gave up and they can now enjoy next weekend off as they have no game and regroup and go at it again in 2 weeks time.
Team: Lorcan Mc Grory, Jason Gallagher, Michael Travers, Paul Diver, Michael Gallagher, Callam Mc Grory, Steven Doherty, Dermot Langan, Billy Harron, Stephen Mc Daid, Christy Price, Jack Gallagher, Diarmaid Mc Gee

** SENIORS AND RESERVES**
Both our teams are away to Red Hughs this coming Sunday.
Our seniors got a good win away to fanad last week and will look to carry that momentum forward to this Sunday against a strong Red Hughs side who are unbeaten in 3 and are Current County and Ulster Junior Champions. The same fixture last year threw up one victory for Naomh Bríd and a draw. Sundays game should be another close battle, and both teams will fancy their chances of picking up a result.
Our reserves are still on the hunt for their first 2 points of the campaign but after a strong performance away to Glenties last Monday and unlucky to pick up a result Mickey and the lads will be looking to pick up a victory this Sunday. The lads are improving with every game and with a good performance this Sunday the wont be too far way from a win. Red Hughs Reserves are also unbeaten in the league this year winning all 3 games. With the lads pushing hard to get a win it makes for exciting game this Sunday.
