More pix from today’s ladies football game v The Neale

UPDATE, Monday, June 1, from Aidrienne Gleeson, PRO + more videos HERE Our U12/U10 ladies played the Neale in a challenge match last Saturday, May 30th, in Flanagan Park, Ballinrobe. Ballinrobe, with a panel of 21 on the day, gave an impressive first-day team display with plenty of scores throughout the match from both sides. The match was played over four 12-minute quarters and all panel members played a minimum of one quarter. Captained by Holly Duddy the panel also included Sophie O’Brien, Ailbhe O’ Loughlin, Ella Murphy, Grace Bradley, Maria Macken, Aoibhinn Barrett, Sarah Finnegan, Lara Philbin, Sophie Sheridan, Erin Collier, Claire Langan, Alayna Murphy, Rebecca Mellett-Connolly, Lily Smyth, Laura Finley, Aleesha Cahill, Rosie Smyth, Amy Gleeson, Grace Cannon and Grace Jennings. The ladies are on the field again June 13th together with the rest of the Robe Rockets for the club’s big Debut Day.   UPDATE, 8pm: Ballinrobe GAA Club chairperson Alan Flannery wishes the girls team every success – follow link below to find this video. UPDATE, 1pm: Pictures and videos from the game are available HERE – more to follow over the next few days. The Neale won the match but our girls played very well for their first game, and what was very encouraging was the way in which our players’ skills held up – when they get accustomed to playing as a team on such a large pitch, they will be a very fine side indeed. Go to our Facebook page for updates and photos from our historic ladies football match v The Neale, now underway in Flanagan Park. We are playing really well against a fine The Neale team. First game for our reformed ladies football club.
