The Reserve Footballers played CPN at Dunavil going down 5-14 to 1-9. An Riocht trailed nine nil after fifteen minutes and but for a fine Stephen Doran save and a Kory Colgan block it would have been worse. We fared better in the second quarter and trailed 0-4 to 1-8 at the break.
A goal and a point within minutes of the restart suggested a rally was on the cards but our poor handling and worse passing continued and CPN ran through to score at ease in the final quarter.
Team: S Doran 0-1, R Clarke, S Corr, C Cunningham, C McVeigh, A O’Hanlon, D Clarke, M Clarke, K Colgan, N McComiskey 0-1, S McArdle 0-1, R Spiers 0-1, J McCartan, M O’Rourke 0-5, A McVeigh 1-0. Subs B Allen, L Harper, B Sloan, S Sloan.

The U18 Footballers won in Bredagh 3-16 to 1-8 after a great team performance. The lads started fast and had Bredagh on the back foot. The movement of the forwards caused the Belfast boys problems and it was attack after attack with long range points and two well worked goals resulting. Bredagh found their chances limited with Deaglan Morgan and Andrew Harper covering back to help the An Riocht defence and Thomas Sloan alert between the Kingdom posts.
At half time An Riocht had it sown up 2-12 to 0-3. Bredagh enjoyed a better restart and hit an early goal and a couple of points but once An Riocht settled, the midfield, backed by a renewed half back line reinforced by the switch of Ronan White,retook control and An Riocht ran out convincing winners. When all the injuries clear up if they continue to work hard this An Riocht side will have more good days than bad ones.
Team: T Sloan, M Harper, S Cunningham, D Hardy, L Rodgers, A Eastwood, A Harper 0-2, D Morgan 1-2, C Clarke 1-5, D Campbell 1-2, R White, D Matthews, R Campbell 0-5. Sub: P McComiskey.

Down GAA are again seeking expressions of interest from coaches who may be interested in working as part of the Down GAA Cúl Camp Coaches team, this coming summer.
We are looking for enthusiastic, qualified coaches to help us build further upon the recent success of the camps within County Down.
There are vacancies for both the positions of Cúl Camp Coach (generally over 18, with suitable previous coaching experience) and Assistant Cúl Camp Coach (generally U18 with little prior experience).
All applicants MUST have completed a minimum of GAA Child Protection and Foundation Level Coaching Award.
Down GAA does not guarantee anyone who applies for a coaching position a full summer of work. Coaches will be chosen based on experience and the numbers of coaches required on any given week. Down GAA is only able to provide less than a week’s notice to coaches as we are reliant on clubs returning numbers of camp attendees before we can decide the numbers of staff needed.
