A real mixed bag this past weekend for our local community based soccer club Maree/Oranmore fc kindly sponsored by The Galway Clinic.
The Premier Adult side comfortably defeated St Bernards in League action on Wednesday in Oranmore finishing very well but despite dominating on Sunday and having a goal disallowed the lads were undeservedly pipped 1-0 away in Loughrea.
Next up on Sunday is a crucial home tie against Salthill Devon ko 2pm in Oranmore.Your support for Don O Riordans charges would be very much appreciated.
The Adult Division 3 side opened their League Campaign on Saturday last in Oranmore and came away with an exciting 3-2 victory against Corrib Rangers.
The goals came courstesy of a fine Colin Thornton free kick, a second from Claudio Da Silva and a winner from the excellent Oisin Lyons who worked tirelessly.
Next up on Saturday is an away League tie against East Utd. The u21 League begins shortly which is aimed at our younger adult players born in 1999,2000 and 2001 and new players for all our adult sides are most welcome. Enquiries to 087 9806489
