Match Report:

In a repeat fixture from last year Castlemartyr again faced Bride Rovers in the first round of the Junior C championship. With a string wind blowing it was never going to be a high scoring match and Castlemartyr played with the elements in the first half. With the score tied at 5 points each, we knew we would be up against it in the second half facing into a string wind. Bride Rovers didn’t coast to victory though as many thought they would with Castlemartyr showing great heart in the second half. As Bride Rovers started slotting over points a Ger Swayne goal kept us in the game and when Bride Rovers went 5 points clear ebtering the last 10 minutes, we again showed character to narrow the gap to a point with a goal and a point from Colin Bowens. However, time ran out and we were unable to find the equalising score. Best for Castlemartyr on the night were Alan Collins who had a stormer in the back line and James Lawton and Colin Bowens who both contributed well on the scoreboard.
