It was a busy week of sport. Last Wednesday in glorious sunshine Grattans enjoyed a blitz in Ardagh, where they played two different Ardagh teams and one Slashers team. They enjoyed three victories and all players contributed strongly to the victories.
Some of the U10s also competed in the Longford South team of community games, and met a strong Mostrim team who got the final result. Best of luck to them.
A number of the U10s were also played on the Stonepark team who enjoyed great success in Pearce Park on Thursday night by winning against St Michaels in the Div 2A final. Well done to all involved in this amazing result.
Our next blitz takes place this Wednesday and we travel to Clonbony to face Shannon Gaels, St. Patrick's Og & Wolfe Tones Og
