U7 Football: It was a ‘Super-Sunday’ morning on 1st August for the U7s in St. Mark's. The boys kicked things off with An Riocht. The huge number of kids from both clubs allowed three matches to be played. It was then over to the girls who welcomed Burren with two games on show. As the young blues get more competitive game-time, the improvement in the skill levels is amazing to see with some excellent tackling, blocks and scores. As always, a big thank you to all the coaches parents, grandparents and relatives who came out to support the kids!

U11 Boys' Football: It was a busy week for our U11 boys with two entertaining games to play. On Thursday 29th July, the U11 boys travelled to Glasdrumman to take on Eire Óg in their latest league match. The boys were up against it with a few key players absent with injury and holidays, however these young lads dug deep to put in one of their best team performances of the season. Leading by 5 points at halftime, playing some wonderful attacking football, they kicked on in the second half to win by 9 points. While the attacking play was of the highest standard, the platform for this performance was set in defence and midfield where the work rate was immense. Well done boys and thanks again to our vocal supporters who made the journey to cheer the boys on to victory!

Warrenpoint Under 11s were back in action for the second time this week when they welcomed Annaclone to Moygannon on Sunday morning (1st August). The corresponding fixture in Annaclone was a real barn-burner and while they came out the wrong side of the result that day, this young 'Point team were determined to balance the scales for their second encounter. In a game played at break-neck speed, the skills and tackling on both sides kept the crowd enthralled.

The Blues made the interval leading by 2 points, but the real damage was done in the third quarter when 3 quick goals gave the 'Point lads some breathing space. Annaclone refused to lie down however and came back with a few scores of their own. The' Point lads steadied the ship with a couple of late scores to seal the deal and now travel to Saval next Sunday (8th August).

U13 Boys' Football: The U13 team welcomed Annaclone to Milltown on Tuesday evening (27th July) in the second round of group matches in the A-Championship. The rain began to fall as the match was about to start but it didn't dampen the effort and enthusiasm of our boys in blue.

The Warrenpoint boys played great football throughout. Their handling in the wet conditions showed the hard work the boys are putting in at training to continue to develop their skills. At the final whistle the young blues came out on top to get their first win in the Championship - next up is Mayobridge on Tuesday 3rd August in Milltown.

Seniors reach first Final in twelve years

In a thrilling hard hitting game in Ballela, two first half goals from Tiernan Murphy & a John O'Kane free gave the blues a slender 1pt HT lead. A third goal before the 2nd water break from Cathal Fagan gave the blues a 3pt advantage. Fagan pushed this out to six upon resumption, leading to a nervous final 5 minutes, with Kilclief grabbing a late consultation goal, but it wasn't enough as Cumann Pheadaír Naofa held on to win by 5pts and reach the final on Sunday.

U13 Hurlers get championship off to great start

Clonduff 3-1 V Patrick Rankins 7-13

The U13’s Patrick Rankins team travelled to Clonduff for the first round of the championship shield. Clonduff were quick to open the scoring with a goal, but Rankins quickly replied with one of their own Jamie Lock to make it even.

Some great displays of skill and teamwork proved to be the difference between the sides as further scores from Danny Doyle, Conor Treanor, Charlie Phelan and Ciaran McMahon saw the visitors lead at the break 2-1 to 4-6.

In goals Lorcan Rowntree pulled off some great saves and with Niall McManus, Jason Duffy and Eoin Campbell repelling the Clonduff attacks, supplying the forwards of Senan Rogan, Malachi Sherwin, Gerard McConville and Danny McManus with plentiful supply of the sliotar, it was the linking play of Eoin Gorman, Tiernan Fitzpatrick and Oliver Murdock that helped keep Patrick Rankins in control of the game as the game finished with a 24 point win going into their next game against Kilclief on Friday.

Team: Lorcan Rowntree, Jason Duffy, Niall McManus, Eoin Campbell, Eoin Gorman, Tiernan Fitzpatrick, Oliver Murdock, Danny Doyle 4-8, Senan Rogan, Malachi Sherwin, Gerard McConville, Danny McManus, Ciaran McMahon 0-2, Jamie Lock 2-1, Charlie Phelan 1-0, Conor Treanor 0-1
