Gortletteragh club notes

Under 15 Championship Final 

We brought the curtain down on our underage football year last Saturday in Ballinamore playing in the Under 15 A Championship Final. Hard luck to the players and coaches. They gave it their all on the day and just fell short. It would be easy to feel disappointed not to come away with a win but these lads can hold their heads up high with the standard of football they have played all year and gave us some great days out. What a year of football these lads have given us. To win the Divisions 1 League and then to go on to get back into the A Championship Final. They have played some excellent football throughout the year. We would like to thank their coaches Frank, Gerard, Eamonn and Seamus for all your hard work all year. Well done to all the players for their effort, hard work and time they have give to the club this year. We like to thank Gavin Mitchell for the sponsoring the food after the game. Also thanks to Loughlin Burns for his help on the day.
