Graignamanagh junior footballers qualified for their first junior co football final since 1972 when they beat Ballyragget on a scoreline of 3-8 to 1-4.

Well done to our Junior Footballers who have reached the league final with an impressive win over St Patrick’s (Ballyraggett). A great team effort and some super passing saw Graig take control from early in the match scoring 2-2 within the first 15 minutes with the goals being scored by Ray Coady & Jim O Donnell.

St Patrick’s never looked to threaten scoring 3 points from play & 1 pointed free the half time the score stood at Graig 2-3 to St Patrick’s 0-4.

Graig got off to the better start in the 2nd half and were relentless in their quest. Both sides hit some wides and while Graig scored 1-2 it was 15 mins into the 2nd half before St Patrick’s registered their first score of the half. Other points flowed for Graig and not even a penalty in the dying minutes was enough to revive a tired St Patrick’s side.

The final score Graig 3-8 St Patricks 1-5.

Scores from Graignamanagh: Padraig Whelan 0-3, Ger Walsh 0-2, Ray Coady 1-1, Jim O Donnell 1-1, Neil Coady 1-1.

Team: Kevin Cushen, Ken Walsh, John Flood, Martin Bolger, Sean Ryan, Ger Walsh, Eddie Dowling, Hughie Flood, Ger Dowling, Padraig Whelan,  Jim O Donnell, Kevin Dowling, Alan Morrisey, Ray Coady and Neil Coady. Subs Diarmuid O Neill & Richard Barron.
