Naomh Malachi CLG
– Naomh Malachi suffered defeat in their opening league fixture of the season. Glyde Rangers opened their league campaign in buoyant fashion thanks to a second half display in a sun-baked Courtbane. Playing into the wind in the first half, the Tallanstown outfit held a four-point advantage at the break and ran out comfortable winners by the final whistle. Full-Time: Naomh Malachi 0-4 Glyde Rangers 2-12.
– Congratulations to all who took part in the recent match in memory of former team mate Keith Rogers. The game between the 2002 and 2015 Naomh Malachi teams was a fitting tribute to Keith’s memory.
