Lotto: There was no winner of last week's (4th April) lotto jackpot of EUR2.900. The numbers drawn were 1, 2, 11, 20. Full details of lucky dip winners are available on the club website.

U-12 Football: Our U-12's made the long trip to Lorrha last Friday evening for our second match in the new U-12 games (Premier 12's). Lorrha got off to a great start & soon found themselves leading by three goals to no score. Ballinahinch then began to play some very good football & began to put a few scores on the scoreboard. We began to play more as a team & started to pass the ball around very well. By half time there was only four points between the teams (4 -0 to 2 - 02). Ballinahinch dug deep in the second half & fought for every ball. They consistently attacked the Lorrha goal area, but the Lorrha defence were resilient & defended well throughout. Eventually, after continuous pressure we got a couple of well deserved goals & with about five minutes remaining, Ballinahinch were leading by a single point (4-02 to 4-03). After another goal & a saved penalty from Lorrha, the game ended in favour of the home side, Lorrha (5 -02 to 4-03). Cathail Ryan, James Lynch & Brian Keane gave great work rate throughout & got some fine scores, while Nial Harrington, Michael Ryan & Elliott Moloney showed great heart & determination in defence. Every player played well on the night & displayed some great team work throughout. Our next match is away to Burgess in Kilcolman this coming Friday evening.

U21: Well done to the hurlers who had a good win over Fr.Sheehys on Friday night in Cappawhite in the first round of the county championship. The second round is due to be played shortly.

Minor: Newport Gaels chalked up their second win of the North 'A' football campaign with a win over Borrisokane last Thursday night. Another win in this will see them with a great chances to qualify for the knockout stages.

Junior: The North Junior 'C' hurling league started last Saturday against Burgess. We lost 0-09 to 1-11 in a closely contested game. Our next game is against Portroe.
