LGFA Junior A Football Championship – Final.

Skryne Ladies quest to play Intermediate Football in 2021 was thwarted by a more experienced Clann na nGael side last Sunday in Ashbourne.  Playing with the aid of the breeze in the first half Skryne raced into an early lead with a goal within the opening minute. Clan na Gael defended well during this period preventing Skryne from playing with their usual rhythm.  However, despite conceding two goals to their opponents Skryne took a took a five point lead into half time.

Skryne consolidated their position in the first quarter of the second half leading by six points at the second water break.  However, unfortunately for the girls it was the last quarter when Clann na nGael were at their most dominant scoring three goals and three points.

The girls never gave up and worked hard to create a goal that left just three points between the sides at the full-time whistle.  Bitter disappointment after a year of great progress but the future is bright for the years ahead.

Team: Rachel Whelan, Lisa Browne, Ailish Lenehan, Steffi Finnegan, Megan O’Brien, Alana Cooney, Samantha Clarke, Aisling Bownes, Fiona O’Rourke (0-3), Ciara Smyth (2-5), Amy O’Dowd, Niamh O’Brien, Sophie Finnegan (0-1), Catriona Keoghan, Roisin McManus (2-0).
