U13 Boys' Football:

On Tuesday evening (15th June) the U13 boys welcomed neighbours Rostrevor to Milltown.

The Rostrevor boys started the match the stronger of the two teams and raced into an early lead. After the first water break, the Warrenpoint boys started to play better, however, they went in at half time 2 points down 1:4 to 1:6.

The second half started with boys in blue on top. They played some great football throughout the second half and took some lovely scores. In the end the team put in a great second-half performance which saw them pull away and emerge victorious.

The mentors and players would like to thank all the supporters who attended the match tonight. Their encouragement meant a lot to the boys.

U13s battle hard against a strong Kilclief side

Patrick Rankins 0-1

Bredagh 5-4

Patrick Rankins welcomed Kilclief to a sun-kissed Milltown on Friday evening and although the score line looked like a white wash; the game told a very different story. The opening half was a low scoring and very close encounter with Ciaran McMahon quickest to respond from a short free to get Rankins off the mark. In fact, the first half was most notable for the performance of Oliver Murdock who, on numerous occasions he pulled off some point blank saves when Kilclief had broken through the Rankins rear-guard.

With the sides evenly balanced at 0-1 to 1-1 at the break, the power and strength of the visitors eventually started to tell their toll, as the visitors broke through for three quick goals to leave the hosts shell shocked inside the opening 5 minutes of the 2nd half.

Even though the result started to slip away from the hosts, Patrick Rankins battled hard for every ball and still managed to please and entertain the side-line & their supporters. 

At the end of the game the score line didn’t reflect the overall evert of the home side and they eagerly look forward to next week’s encounter with Clonduff, which promises to be a real thriller!

Team: Oliver Murdock, Eoin Campbell, Jason Duffy, Niall McManus, Eoin Gorman, Danny Doyle, Ciaran McMahon, Conal Gallagher, James Curran, Conor Treanor, Charlie Phelan, Jamie Lock, Lorcan Rowntree, Malachi Sherwin

U11s go under to Ballela

Cumann Pheadaír Naofa 0-1

Ballela 8-4

Our Under 11s had to give way to a physically stronger Ballela side on Saturday morning. But the score line doesn’t reflect the immense effort the team put in, with most of Ballela's goals coming in the final quarter when injuries and tiredness caught up with Warrenpoint's youngsters, many of whom have two more years to play in this grade.

Darragh Murney was the Point's scorer on the day, with a tremendous free, one of many taken from distance. The side was captained by Ruadhan Williams and included Thomas Rohrs, Conor Rice, Tristan Dooley, Theo Gambold, Eddie Ng, Darragh Murney, Lorcán Rowntree, Morgan Brown, Ben

U15s win at home

Cumann Pheadaír Naofa 4-11

Bredagh 3-5

The blues welcomed Kilclief to Milltown on Sunday morning. Having missed several key players over the last few weeks through injury and other commitments it was a fully recovered side that took to the park. The welcome return of Conaire McMahon in goals was complimented by a steady and reliable Oisín McGivern in defence. Oisín Gambold & Mickey Keohane controlled the middle third of the field along with the hard-working Shea O’Hare & Ethan McFerran up front it wasn’t long before Mikey Keohane soloed through and smashed the sliotar to the roof of the net for an early lead the Strangford side battled back & three quick goals saw them in front by two points just after the first water break. Although the blues maintained their work rate & effort through points from Jamie Lock, Oisín Gambold & a second Mikey Keohane goal to lead by two at the break.

A great effort in defending along with some great clearances out of goals kept Kilclief scoreless until the dying minutes of the game as Oisín Gambold & Jamie Lock added goals to leave the home side nine-point winners at the final whistle.
