CHAMPIONSHIP DRAW. The Draw for the Bernard O Callaghan Memorial 2013 Senior Football Championship will take place on Thursday August 28th at a venue to be decided at a later date. Our Senior footballers who have fared well each year in the past will be one of the thirteen clubs entering the competition. In fact in last years first round against the might of Castleisland Desmonds only a point seperated the sides at the final whistle; 1-9 to 1-8.
A quote from a local newspaper stated; “This was a tremendous performance from Asdee who were given little chance going into this game but they certainly proved their doubters wrong and only for poor shooting; could and should be at least be 4pts ahead at the last whistle. Maybe it would be unfair to single out anybody as this was a truly tremendous team performance but special mention must be given to Noel Long who gave a Man of the Match display, Conor Coughlan with some spectacular goalkeeping and Kieran Kelly who was making his debut in senior championship football, swinging over a point from wing back and was never to put a foot wrong”.
Team and scorers; Asdee, Conor Coughlan, Eoin O Carroll, Martin Collins, David O Connor, Kieran Kelly, 1pt, Noel Long, 1pt, Brian Coughlan, John Doran, Padraig Ruddle, Michael Tydings, 2pts, Eoin Kennedy, capt, 2pts, Micheal Walsh, Mike Breen, 2pts, Darren Russell, pen, Kenneth Tydings.
