UNDERAGE
It was a great start to a memorable weekend for the club when the U-13's beat Kilcar in Fintragh on Saturday morning last in the division 2 regional final on a score line of 2-8 to 2-5, in a very good team performance. St Nauls had to dig deep in the second half when Kilcar came back at them but held on and had too much in the end for a spirited Kilcar team, half time score was 1-7 to 0-1. Congratulations to the players and management team of Donnie, John and Shaun, (Peter away working this weekend), the very best of luck in the County semi-final.

The minor division 2 county final against Four Masters is in McCumhaill Park this Sunday (23rd) with a 3 o'clock throw in. Please continue your support for this important game. Let's get the colours out again for our minors.
