U19 Ladies..It wasn't to be for the Cornafean U19 Ladies in the Division 3 final on Saturday last as a very strong second half from Belturbet gave them victory in a very entertaining 9 - a - side game.  The Reds were up by a goal at the break but were not able to sustain the effort against very formidable opponents and a couple of late goals gave Belturbet the title.  It has been a long year for many of this U19 squad and all your efforts in the Red jersey are very much appreciated.  Hard luck on the day and well done to the team management and panel of players. 
Team.  Hazel Sheridan, Aine Brady, Anna Tully, Roisin Barry, Jemma Wilson, Amy Wharton, Deirbhile McCaffrey, Kellie Johnson, Emma McGahern, Edel Brady, Emer Cullen. 

Ranafest Cup Winners....St. Patrick's College ended a five year wait when they landed the Ranafest Cup U16 Colleges Ulster Championship in Clones recently.  Congratulations to Cornafean lads Shane Halton and Jack Trainor who played in the corner back and corner forward positions respectively and both lads very much played their part in the College's notable victory over St. Michael's College from Enniskillen.
