On the playing pitch the u18 Premier side were pipped in Fahys Field on a 3-2 scoreline against Mervue midweek in a top of the table clash in a very close keenly contested game. The Maree/Oranmore goals came courtesy of Gavin Smyth and Conal Doyle strikes. Both clubs are at present joint top of the table.
The u11 boys had a fine outing against Colga fc in a series of mini games on Saturday morning last in Oranmore.
The u14 div 1 boys side squandered a 3-0 lead against Cregmore/Claregalway A side and went down 6-3 in Oranmore despite a hattrick from David Wosniewski in a game where it certainly rained goals.

Hoping to see you all in 2020, fit and well, raring to go.
