RGU Club Notes 03/04/17

This week sees a plethora of games as most teams in the Club swing into action.

The Seniors dip their toe in the top tier after a break of a year. They start away to Mayobridge in a mouth-watering fixture on Friday night. This is a much anticipated clash with both teams trying to re-establish themselves in the Senior ranks. Conor Deegan is happy with preparations so far and now comes up against a Mayobridge side headed up by former county star Benny Coulter.

The Reserves got their season up and running with a win away to St Pauls and now face Dundrum this Sunday evening
The U 16s started last week and had a titanic battle before getting over the line with 2 points to spare against Bredagh in a match played in the wind and rain. They face Burren away this Thursday.

The Minors will play their first game against Shamrocks .

The U 14s suffered a narrow defeat away to Bryansford and will play their second game tonight Monday.
