U13 Championship Shield Semi-Final
Caulry 5-9
Tyrrellspass 2-4
Our U13 boys had a good win in their shield semi-final on Saturday afternoon last when they hosted Tyrrellspass in the park.
The Caulry lads hit the ground running and were 1-1 up within two minutes of kick-off thanks to scores from Brian Doyle and Simon O’Grady. Tyrrellspass almost levelled the playing field moments later when their no. 8 won the ball and made a burst forward with only one thing on his mind, a goal which he neatly pocketed. Lee Corcoran then put Caulry in the driving seat as he notched up an unanswered 1-2. Further scores from Rory Hatton and Doyle preceded Tyrrellspass’ next score. Points for the visitors on the 21st and 29th minutes reduced the deficit but a late point from Aaron Buckley saw Caulry lead 3-7 to 1-2 at the break.
Fionn O’Donovan opened Caulry’s second half scoring account after some good play by Lee Fallon. The opposition were unfortunate as a shot in riffled back of the post on the 35th minute. O’Grady added 1-1 before Tyrrellspass pointed from play. The sides then exchanged goals at either end of the field with O’Donovan firing home for the Caulry boys. The Tyrrellspass goalie brought off a number of good saves throughout as a late surge from his side proved to be too little too late as this win sees the Caulry boys advance to the shield final.
Team & Scorers: Cian Malone, Kyle Byrne, Michael McSharry, Eoin Lynam, Luke Nolan, Eoin McCormack, Max Nolan, Dean Martin, Rory Hatton (0-2), Adrien Lefebvre, Simon O’Grady (2-1), Brain Doyle (0-2), Aaron Buckley (0-1), Lee Corcoran (2-2, 1f), Lee Fallon

U15 Championship Semi-Final
Caulry 1-6
Killucan 1-8
Our U15s bowed out of this year’s championship in the semi-final stages when they came up short against Killucan in the park on Sunday afternoon last.
A converted-free from Oisin Shortall got the homeside motoring early on. Darragh Shortall then set up Caulry’s second score of the game when he took a short free to Andrew Stuart Trainor who set Aaron Murphy up for a point. Moments later, Conor Hynes pulled on a loose ball and put Caulry three points the good. Despite this very bright start, our lads never pushed on as Killucan accounted for the remainder of the first half scores. Max O’Sullivan brought off a good save on the 4th minute, the rebound of which was put over the bar for Killucan’s opening score. Our lads were guilty of some wasteful possession as two scores for the opposition saw them draw level on the 11th minute. The opposition dominated the second quarter, but failed to notch up scores, converting just two chances to lead at the break 0-5 to 0-3. Caulry were lucky to have such narrow margins between the sides at this interval thanks to some great saves by their no.1 O’Sullivan.
Shortall opened the scoring account again in the second half with another pointed-free. A goal chance for Caulry went astray as the Killucan boys moved the ball well up the field and finished with a fine point from play. Despite initially bringing off a good save, O’Sullivan fell short of Killucan’s second strike as they rattled the back of the net on the 46th minute. However, the Caulry boys responded in style as a pass from Stuart Trainor found Aindriu Lynam who riffled the back of the net to bring the scoreline back to two. Two wides for Killucan sandwiched another Shortall free. Tadgh Baker made a good burst forward, with this move resulting in a foul on Lynam. The ensuing free was converted by Stuart Trainor and meant it was level pegging with five minutes to play. Killucan worked the ball from the kickout and again finished with a fine point from play. A free on the 60th minute gave them a dangerous lead of two points as the Caulry lads searched desperately for a goal. Unfortunately, it was not to be as the Killucan lads hung tight and escaped with the win on a scoreline of 1-8 to 1-6.
Team & Scorers: Max O’Sullivan, Alan McHugh, David Gaynor, Sean Donnelly, Cormac Murphy, Tadgh Baker, Darragh Shortall, Brendan McCormack, Oisin Shortall (0-3, 3f), Dean Byrnes, Andrew Stuart Trainor (0-1, 1f), Aaron Hanevy, Aindriu Lynam (1-0), Aaron Murphy (0-1), Conor Hynes (0-1)
Subs: Lee Corcoran for Dean Byrne, Cian Heavin for Darragh Shortall

U17 Championship Semi-Final
Caulry 1-9
Killucan 3-11
Our U17s bowed out of this year’s championship in the semi-final stages when they hosted Killucan in the park on Saturday evening last.
Ruairi Casey was put to the test within the opening minute of the game as Killucan shot for goal which he dutifully knocked out for a ‘45’ which dropped short. Despite missing these early chances, it was the visitors who opened the scoring account as they pointed on the 2nd minute. Caulry notched up a few wides prior to their opening score, coming on the 4th minute as Alan Malynn made the most of the advanced mark rule. Killucan were patient in attack, tapping over another point. Senan Baker was unlucky moments later as he tore forward and shot low for goal, which he narrowly missed. This preceded the next two scores of the game which came courtesy of Malynn on the 8th and 12th minutes. Casey dealt well with a high ball in as the ball was worked out through Sean Murphy and Malynn who found Paul Hogan. Hogan then put Caulry into a four-point lead as he riffled the back of the Killucan net. The boys in yellow and white responded well, however, with a point from play straight after the water break. Hogan sent over a point on the 23rd minute after Baker showed great vision, managing to stop the ball going out over the line and opting to play it back. Once again, the Killucan boys responded in style, drawing this score back with another point from play. A long-range effort from Malynn was cancelled out moments later by another Killucan point. Our lads will rue the closing minutes of the half when they dropped their guard momentarily and Killucan pulled on a loose ball which hit the back of the Caulry net. This all-important score meant the two well-matched sides were level at the break with 1-5 each.
Killucan now playing with a storm on their backs took to the field with determination in the second half as they edged in front with a point from play after three minutes. The Caulry lads tried hard with James Buckley impressing throughout but we struggled to convert chances as our tally of wides grew. Killucan then took control of the game, adding 1-1 in quick succession to lead by five as 40 minutes elapsed. Some more missed chances for Caulry added to Killucan’s momentum as they stretched their lead with two more points. Malynn then got Caulry motoring with a pointed-free on the 22nd minute. Points from Tadgh Baker and Malynn gave our lads some hope. But, this was soon dashed as the Killucan lads tore forward and got their hattrick with two minutes left. The opposition outscored our lads 0-2 to 0-1 to deservedly take the win on a scoreline of 3-11 to 1-8.
Hard luck to the Caulry lads and their management on this unlucky result, but a huge well done on their impressive championship campaign which saw them go unbeaten throughout the initial league stages.
Team & Scorers: Ruairi Casey, Tadgh Baker, Tom Cloonan, Adam Doyle, Harry Stuart Trainor, Sean Murphy, Alan Lynam, Senan Baker (0-1, 1f), Conor Paul, Aaron Murray, Shane Lawless, James Buckley, Paul Hogan (1-1), Andrew Stuart Trainor, Alan Malynn (0-6, 2f)
Subs: Brendan McCormack for Aaron Murray, Oisin Shortall for Conor Paul

JFC Semi-Final
Caulry 1-11
Coralstown/Kinnegad 2-13
Our Juniors’ efforts in reaching a county final were denied when they battled it out against Coralstown/Kinnegad in Kilbeggan on Sunday afternoon last.
Coralstown/Kinnegad were first to get motoring, pointing after one minute of play. Caulry then got lucky as Declan Donohoe rattled the back of the opposition’s net after making the most of Roan Sweeney’s initial attempt. Cialan Dollard converted a free to stretch the margins between the teams. However, this lead was short-lived as a fumble in the Caulry defence was punished with a well-taken goal for Coralstown/Kinnegad. Although having much of the possession, Coralstown/Kinnegad failed to convert some scoring chances with the next score of the game coming from the boot of Alan Daly on the 9th minute. The tables then turned as our lads dominated possession, but similar to the opposition, we struggled to convert scores. Coralstown/Kinnegad were now more cynical up front during this period and added three points to put them two points the good. Roan Sweeney made a good run forward and set Olan Healy up for a point on the 24th minute, but it was Coralstown/Kinnegad who finished the half stronger, adding on scores to lead 1-6 to 1-3 at the halftime whistle.
Early points from Malynn and Adam Donoghue left the narrowest of margins between the teams in the second half and it was still all to play for. The game followed in much the same vein, with both teams enjoying their period of dominance. Coralstown/Kinnegad added three points prior to Malynn and Donoghue accounting for three Caulry scores. Stephen Brookes done well when introduced, making a burst forward and pointing to reduce the deficit to one. Healy worked tirelessly throughout, winning the breaking ball and finding Rory Mullins with a pass who levelled the game on the 48th minute. Although very little separated the sides, Coralstown/Kinnegad’s dominance at midfield prove vital to this win as they won the next two kickouts and finished both moves with points. Peter Smyth drew on back on the 57th minute. However, the Coralstown/Kinnegad men dug deep, firing over 1-1 to book their place in the county final.
Team & Scorers: Ernie Buckley, Luke Hamilton, Eoin Shortall, Ciaran Allen, Rory Mullins (0-1), Robbie Hickey, Dylan Lowry, Conor Dolan, Cialan Dollard (0-1, 1f), Olan Healy (0-1), Alan Daly (0-1), Roan Sweeney, Adam Donoghue (0-2), Declan Donohoe (1-0), Liam Malynn (0-3, 1f)
Subs: Stephen Brookes (0-1) for Ciaran Allen, Peter Smyth (0-1) for Rory Mullins

U17 Championship Quarter-Final
Caulry 2-6
Coralstown/Kinnegad 0-9
Our U17 lads advance to the semi-final stages of this year’s championship after they overcame Coralstown/Kinnegad after extra time in the park on a wet and miserable Wednesday evening last.
It was Caulry who raced into an early lead on the 3rd minute when Andrew Stuart Trainor made the most of the advance mark, dropping the ball into the back of the net over the opposition’s goalie’s head. Despite owning much of the possession early on, Caulry failed to convert some chance with Senan Baker converting the next score after ten minutes thanks to a good pass from Alan Malynn. Coralstown/Kinnegad concluded the lacklustre first half, slotting over two points to leave Caulry lead by two at the halftime whistle.
It was the visitors who got off to a good start in the second half, tagging on two early points and drawing level on the 38th minute. A fine point moment later temporarily edged their noses in front. However, a converted-free from Malynn soon cancelled this out. The game continued on this tit-for-tat basis with a Coralstown/Kinnegad point being cancelled out by a fine score from Stuart Trainor. Both teams missed some scoring chances as they struggled with the poor conditions, sharing a point apiece in the closing five minutes to force the game to extra time as the sides finished level on a scoreline of 1-4 to 0-7.
As the conditions deteriorated and visibility lessened, so too did the standard of football as both sides failed to point in the first half of extra time. Coralstown/Kinnegad then took to the filed with determination after the break, converting a free inside the opening 60 seconds. Caulry were patient in attack despite being under severe pressure as Shane Lawless pointed and levelled the game once again. Another pointed-free nudged Coralstown/Kinnegad ahead. However, the Caulry lads never gave up as Lawless showed great vision when he sent a high-ball in and chipped the opposition’s keeper to put Caulry two points the good with three minutes to play. Baker then converted a late free, securing our lads the win on a scoreline of 2-6 to 0-9. This win means our lads progress to a semi-final clash against Killucan which is to be played next weekend in Caulry.
Team & Scorers: Ruairi Casey, Tadgh Baker, Tom Cloonan, Adam Doyle, Harry Stuart Trainor, Sean Murphy, Alan Lynam, Senan Baker (0-2, 1f), Conor Paul, James Buckley, Shane Lawless (1-1), Aaron Murray, Paul Hogan, Alan Malynn (0-2, 1f, 1 ‘45’), Andrew Stuart Trainor (1-1)

SFC Relegation Semi-Final
Caulry 2-8
Castledaly 0-13
Our lads secured their senior championship status under lights in Athlone on Friday night last when they fought to the bitter-end of what turned out to be a 80 minute affair (including extra time) against neighbours Castledaly in their relegation semi-final.
It was the opposition who impressed most in the opening 30 minutes of the game. Castledaly started strong and were unlucky as two goal chances went astray (one coming courtesy of Cillian Nagle’s saves) prior to opening the scoring account on the 6th minute with a pointed-free. Our lads were guilty of some wasteful possessions as Castledaly sent over their second score of the game after an initial shot came back off the post. The opposition impressed all over the field as a number of Caulry attacks were unsuccessful. Nagle brought off another fine save on the 13th minute but the opposition still managed to notch up five points before our lads got off the mark. Our opening score eventually coming on the 21st minute after a ball in from Conor McCormack found Luke Buckley who made no mistake in pocketing a goal. Castledaly responded in style, striking over another point three minutes later. Colin Murphy then converted our second score of the game, this a pointed-free but Castledaly finished strong with a well-taken score from play to lead 0-7 to 1-1 at the interval.
Castledaly were first to find their scoring boots in the second half with a point from play one minute after throw-in. A Caulry attacked trickled out wide before our lads really began to settle into proceedings. Buckley gave us hope as he finished off a nice move via Robbie Hickey and Alan Fitzpatrick by riffling the ball to the back of the net on the 35th minute. Hickey then kicked the next score of the game two minutes later, drawing level and reigniting Caulry’s desire for a win. Despite two scorable chances going wide, the Caulry lads’ hopes were not dashed as Stephen Connolly showed great vision, sending a quick free into Andy O’Sullivan who pointed to edge our lads in front for the first time in the game. This lead was short-lived, however, as the opposition broke Caulry’s momentum and reversed the scoreline by registering the next two scores of the game. Once again Nagle brought off a tremendous save, failing to buckle under the pressure of the Castledaly forwards and sent the ball out for a ‘45’, which the opposition failed to convert. Connolly kicked the next score of the game on the 51st minute, making it level-pegging once again. Despite the best efforts of our lads, it was Castledaly who owned much of the ensuing possession, but fortunately for us, as the tension rose, the opposition struggled to register their chances as they tagged on three wides. Nagle done well during this time, dashing Castledaly’s hopes for a goal with another vital intercept. The ball was then worked up the field and tapped over the bar by Buckley on the 55th minute. It was tit-for-tat for the closing minutes of the game, with both defences holding strong before Castledaly pointed on the 60th minute, forcing extra-time as the all-important senior championship status hung in-balance for both clubs.
The two sides were slow to settle in the opening minutes of extra time and missed some chances. Again, Caulry goalie Cillian Nagle must be accredited for bringing off another fine save on the 5th minute. Impressive displays from Damien Dolan and Eoin Fox inspired the Caulry defence as Castledaly were penalised for over-carrying. This free-kick landed into the awaiting arms of Paddy Sleator who set O’Sullivan up and once again, he put Caulry in front with this point after six minutes. Neil Clinton and Cialan Dollard combined out-field and set substitute Thomas Dunning for a score moments later as Caulry lead by two at the break on a scoreline of 2-7 to 0-11.
Both sides again missed scores in the opening moments after the resumption of play. Castledaly then broke their plight after four minutes with a superb long-range point. A pass from Kevin Maguire  found Dolan who tore forward and sent over what-was-to-be the winning point of the game. Nagle kept Caulry’s dreams alive as another fine save kept the two-point lead in-tact. Castledaly reduce this to one with one minute left to play as they converted a free. The Caulry lads’ hunger and desire for the win could be felt in the closing minutes of the game as Nagle kept his goal-line clear late in the game to ensure Caulry had done enough and secured their senior status for 2021.
Congratulations to the lads and their management team on this impressive display of football and deservedly securing their place in the 2021 SFC.

U15 Championship Round 3
Caulry 1-11
Tubberclair 2-6
Our U15 boys made it three wins from three when they made the journey to Tubberclair on a wet Monday evening last for their latest championship fixture.
The sides struggled to grasp conditions in the opening minutes of the game with some attempts going astray before Tubberclair opened the scoring tally with a point from play. Oisin Shortall got Caulry off the mark a few minutes later. Aaron Murphy then rattled the back of the Tubberclair net to launch Caulry into the lead. The homeside’s goalie brought off a good save as Murphy and Tiarnan O’Donovan settled for points to steady the ship. A pointed-free from Andrew Stuart Trainor preceded Tubberclair’s first goal of the game which left the scoreboard reading 1-7 to 1-4 at the break.
Tubberclair took the lead early in the second half after converting a penalty. However, the Caulry lads never panicked with a cross-ball from Cormac Murphy being helped over the bar by Aindriu Lynam. Aaron Murphy and Stuart Trainor added the next two points of the game to put Caulry two points clear. Another free from Stuart Trainor was sandwiched between two Tubberclair points. Lynam then put over an impressive score on the 47th minute despite being closely marked. The game went on a point-for-point basis with scores from Brendan McCormack and Dean Byrne helping to keep the opposition at arm’s length. In the closing minutes of the game, Tubberclair pressed hard, launching in a number of unsuccessful attacks and Max O’Sullivan must be accredited for his vital save late in the game which ensured Caulry kept their lead in-tact and ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-11 to 2-6.
Team & Scorers: Max O’Sullivan, Sean Donnelly, Eoin Murphy, Darragh Shortall, Cormac Murphy, Tadgh Baker, David Gaynor, Tiarnan O’Donovan (0-1), Oisin Shortall (0-1), Cody Parker, Andrew Stuart Trainor (0-3, 3f), Brendan McCormack (0-1), Aindriu Lynam (0-2), Aaron Murphy (1-2), Conor Hynes
Subs: Aaron Hanevy for Sean Donnelly, Dean Byrne (0-1) for Tiarnan O’Donovan

U17 Championship Round 3
Caulry 2-12
Tyrrellspass 1-4
Our U17 lads notched up their third consecutive win in their latest U17 championship game in the park on a stormy Wednesday evening last when they hosted Tyrrellspass.
Tyrrellspass were first to get motoring with two points early in the game. Alan Malynn then opened our scoring tally on the 9th minute as he converted a straight-forward free. A number of missed chances ensued for both sides, with both the Caulry and Tyrrellspass goalies bringing off fine saves before Shane Lawless levelled proceedings on the 14th minute. Our lads then put their stamp on the game with a well-taken goal from Senan Baker after a good intercept from James Buckley. Three quick-fire points from Malynn stretched our lead to six. However, Tyrrellspass soon regained initiative, riffling the ball to the back of the Caulry net on the 27th minute. A point apiece for the sides saw Caulry lead 1-6 to 1-3 at the halftime whistle.
The second half followed in much the same vein with a number of scores going astray as a point from Andrew Stuart Trainor on the 36th minute opened the second half tally of scores. Despite playing into the storm, it was the Caulry forward who impressed most in the second half with Malynn accounting for the next three points of the game after some good play out field from Tom Cloonan and Alan Lynam. Malynn then showed great vision on the 42nd minute as he chipped the keeper and registered Caulry’s second goal of the game. Baker pointed either side of Tyrrellspass’ only score of the second half, this a ‘45’ on the 52nd minute. Ultimately, the Caulry lads never looked in doubt in the second half as they ran out winners with eleven points to spare.
Team & Scorers: Ruairi Casey, Harry Stuart Trainor, Tom Cloonan, Adam Doyle, Tadgh Baker, Sean Murphy, Alan Lynam, Senan Baker (1-2), Conor Paul, Aaron Murray, Shane Lawless (0-2), James Buckley, Paul Hogan, Andrew Stuart Trainor (0-1), Alan Malynn (1-7, 3f)
Subs: Oisin Shortall for Harry Stuart Trainor, Joey Berry for Aaron Murray, Alex Grinko for Conor Paul, Brendan McCormack for James Buckley

U13 Championship Round 3
Caulry 1-11
Tubberclair 1-12
Our U13 boys were defeated by the narrowest of margins when they travelled to Tubberclair on Thursday evening last.
The homeside hit the ground running, launching a high ball into the corner of the Caulry net on the 2nd minute. The teams then shared a point apiece, with Hugo McGowan on target for Caulry. The Tubberclair goalie impressed with his shot-stopping ability as he denied Dean Martin moments later and his side raced up the field and tapped over two fine points from play. Our lads then got a burst of energy with two points from Lee Corcoran slicing the deficit. Eoin McCormack and Kyle Byrne worked hard in the Caulry backline as further points from Simon O’Grady and Corcoran left just one point between the sides. However, Caulry struggled to erase this deficit as three unanswered Tubberclair scores pushed them ahead once again. A great intercept from Michael McSharry was worked up the field and slotted into the back of the Tubberclair net by Aaron Buckley. But the opposition held strong, outscoring Caulry 0-2 to 0-1 to lead by two at the break.
Our lads got off to a promising start in the opening minutes of the second half with scores from Corcoran and Martin levelling the game. Fionn O’Donovan brought off a good save on the 40th minute. However, our boys struggled to notch up scores against a packed Tubberclair defence. The teams shared five points in the closing minutes of the game with O’Grady and Corcoran accounting for two Caulry points as Tubberclair ran out winners with one point to spare.
Team & Scorers: Cian Malone, Kyle Byrne, Michael McSharry, Eoin Lynam, Max Nolan, Eoin McCormack, Luke Nolan, Dean Martin (0-1), Brian Doyle, Adrien Lefebvre, Simon O’Grady (0-2), Jack Killane, Aaron Buckley (1-1), Lee Corcoran (0-6, 4f), Hugo McGowan (0-1)

JFC Round 2
Caulry 3-11
Shandonagh 0-7
Our juniors had a comprehensive win over Shandonagh in a fairly one-sided affair in Hogan Park on Friday evening last for their second game of the championship.
Despite a promising start with a point from play, Shandonagh failed to get going as a well-taken goal from Cialan Dollard propelled Caulry into an early lead. A good move via Dollard and Hugh Allen set Adam Donoghue up for a point moments later. Brain Mullarney dealt well with a ball in from Shandonagh which was worked up the field and finished with another point from Donoghue. Our lads then began dominating the mid-field area of the pitch, winning the next three kick-outs, two of which Liam Malynn rounded off with points. Dollard made another surge forward, this time combining with Dylan Lowry who helped the ball into the back of the opposition’s net. Dollard and Donoghue both added points to the scoring tally before Shandonagh got to grips with the game, firing over two late points from play to trail 2-6 to 0-4 at the interval.
The second half followed the same pattern as the first with Caulry dominating throughout. An early converted-free for Shandonagh was soon cancelled out by a point from Olan Healy. The Caulry lads worked well together as a team with some good outfield play setting Hugh Allen and Roan Sweeney up for the next two points of the game. Ernie Buckley dealt well with the high-ball in with Eoin Shortall and Mullarney providing a good comfort blanket in their defensive roles. Shandonagh kicked two scores on the 47th and 48th minutes to reduce the deficit, but it was Caulry who finished the stronger team with Malynn adding 1-2 to leave the scoreboard reading 3-11 to 0-7 at the fulltime whistle.
Team & Scorers: Ernie Buckley, Luke Hamilton, Eoin Shortall, Ciaran Allen, Alan Daly, Brain Mullarney, Dylan Lowry (1-0), Rory Mullins, Conor Dolan, Hugh Allen (0-1), Cialan Dollard (1-1), Olan Healy (0-1), Liam Malynn (1-4, 1f), Roan Sweeney (0-1), Adam Donoghue (0-3)

Our senior’s dreams of a quarter-final were squashed on Saturday evening last when they battled it out against Athlone in Tang for their latest championship fixture.
It was the opposition who opened the scoring account after one minute with a point from play before some good defending from Damien Dolan set Conor McCormack up for Caulry’s first point of the game. Athlone got their noses in front again as they pointed on the 6th and 9th minutes. Andy O’Sullivan was fouled inside and Colin Murphy tapped over the ensuing free to narrow the gap once again. A point from play for the opposition was cancelled out by McCormack’s pointed-free on the quarter-hour mark. Cillian Nagle brought off a good save on the 23rd minute as some good play from Neil Clinton enabled McCormack to level the game minutes later. Both sides then missed chances prior to Caulry edging in front after O’Sullivan made the most of the advanced-mark rule, leaving Caulry leading 0-5 to 0-4 at the break.
Our lads burst out of the tracks with a point from McCormack inside the opening 60 seconds after some good work out field from Alan Fitzpatrick. Points from Luke Buckley and Stephen Connolly then had our lads leading by four as the 40th minute elapsed. Athlone drew one back before McCormack’s long-range free restored the four-point gap. Athlone made the most of a costly mistake in the Caulry backline as they split the defence and rattled the back of the net on the 45th minute. The opposition won the ensuing kick-out and drew level with a score from play. The teams traded wides before a good burst forward saw Athlone sneak in front on the 51st minute. Two-converted placed ball from Buckley reversed the scoreline minutes later. However, Athlone were not going to give up that easily as three unanswered points from play put them two points the good once again. O’Sullivan and McCormack’s points kept Caulry’s hopes alive in the closing minutes of the game, but unfortunately for us, the opposition had done enough. A relieved Athlone side welcomed the full-time whistle as this disappointing draw means our lads find themselves  fighting for their senior status for 2021.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Damien Dolan, Eoin Fox, Sean Fox, Neil Clinton, Kevin Maguire, Eoghan Grennan, Stephen Connolly (0-1), John Maguire, Alan Fitzpatrick, Conor McCormack (0-6, 2f), Colin Murphy (0-1, 1f), Luke Buckley (0-3, 2f), Paddy Sleator, Andy O’Sullivan (0-2)

Senior Championship Fixture

Our lads will be looking to push on from their impressive performance last weekend and do one better when they take to the field in Athlone at 8:15pm. We wish the lads and their management the very best of look in this all-important game. As the game will take place behind closed doors, match updates will be posted on our social media throughout.

Senior and Junior Championship Fixtures
Our seniors make the journey to Tang on Saturday evening next for their second outing of this year’s championship. The opposition will be provided by near-neighbours Athlone. A win on the evening would secure our lads a quarter-final spot and see them avoiding ending up in the relegation danger-zone. The sides last met in the senior championship in 2016 where the Caulry lads came out on top on a scoreline of 0-15 to 1-9 and undoubtedly, our lads will be hungry for a similar result on Saturday. Kick-off for this all-important clash is 6:45pm.
Similarly, our juniors will be looking for a win on Friday when they take on Shandonagh in Moate. This game takes place at 7pm and a win is also needed to qualify for a quarter-final of this year’s competition.  
We wish both panels and their management teams the very best of luck.
Anyone interested in being entered into a draw for a ticket to either game must give their name and match preference (Junior, Senior or Both) to James Casey, Keith Dolan or Samantha Carroll by 5pm on Wednesday.

JFC 2 Round 1
Caulry 3-10
Moate 3-10
Tang hosted our JFC Round 1 clash against Moate on a fine bank holiday Monday afternoon last where both sides had to settle for a point apiece after the game finished level-pegging.
After their first attack trickled off to the side and wide, Moate pounced on the following Caulry kickout and walked the ball into the back of the net for the first three-pointer of the game. Caulry replied in style with Liam Malynn rocketing in two quick-fire goals after some good work out-field from Thomas Dunning and Roan Sweeney. Malynn then kicked the opening point of the game after seven minutes as some good pressure from the Caulry defence forced another Moate wide. Olan Healy was fouled up front and Cialan Dollard neatly converted the ensuing free to put Caulry five points the good. Moate kept their composure and drew one back on the quarter-hour mark. A few wasteful possessions from our lads saw our tally of wides rise as another Moate free cut the deficit some more. The Caulry defence done well to diffuse a goal-threat on the 24th minute with the opposition eventually settling for a point. John Maguire then kicked the next score of the game after a patient build-up. The Moate goalie brought off a fine save on the 28th minute as two late points from Malynn saw Caulry lead 2-5 to 1-3 at the break.
Luke Buckley opened the second half’s scoring tally inside the resuming 60 seconds of play. Despite some good movement, our lads struggled to convert scores as the teams shared a point each. The opposition had a purple patch with two well-taken goals on the 40th and 42nd minutes to draw level. The sides converted two pointed-frees before points from Buckley and Dunning edged Caulry in front. A number of Caulry chances fell short of the target as Moate pegged on two points to level the game for a third time. Some great vision from Alan Fitzpatrick set Dollard up for a goal on the 57th minute which looked to have put the game to bed. However, the Moate lads must be commended for their composure as they dominated the closing minutes of the game, tagging on three late points and bringing an end to an entertaining hour of football.
Team & Scorers: Michael McMahon, Ciaran Allen, Brain Mullarney, Luke Hamilton, Conor Dolan, Alan Fitzpatrick, Dylan Lowry, Rory Mullins, John Maguire (0-1), Olan Healy, Cialan Dollard (1-1, 1f), Roan Sweeney, Adam Donoghue, Thomas Dunning (0-1), Liam Malynn (2-5, 2f, 1 ‘45’)
Subs: Eoin Shortall, Ciaran Gaynor, Nicky Killane, Alan Daly, Luke Buckley (0-2), Alan Rigney

U15 Championship Round 2
Caulry 6-14
Cill Óige 1-5
Our U15s made it two from two on Monday evening last when they hosted Cill Óige in the park for their latest championship fixture.
Our boys were slow to settle with a number of shots falling wide of the target before a well-taken goal from Aaron Murphy got Caulry off the mark after six minutes. The Caulry boys rallied on from this early lead, firing over 3-3 without reply. Pressure from Sean Donnelly and Darragh Shortall in defence helped to keep the opposition scoreless as the Caulry forwards continued to add to their tally with Brendan McCormack and Andrew Stuart Trainor tapping over points on the 15th and 17th minutes. Max O’Sullivan done well under the dropping ball, clearing any threats as a late point from Cian Lawless meant Caulry had notched up an impressive 4-6 against a scoreless Cill Óige at the halftime break.
Cill Óige were first out of the tracks in the second half, converting an early free. However, a point from Shortall and goals from Stuart Trainor and Murphy soon had the homeside back in control of proceedings. The teams shared four points between the 38th and 43rd minutes before Stuart Trainor combined nicely with David Gaynor and slotted over two fine points from play. Aaron Hanevy and Dean Bryne both put their names on the scoresheet before Cill Óige registered their next score of the game. A late surge for the opposition which yielded 1-3 to Caulry’s 0-1 saw Caulry ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 6-14 to 1-5.
Team & Scorers: Max O’Sullivan, Sean Donnelly, Eoin Murphy, Darragh Shortall (0-1), David Gaynor, Tadgh Baker, Cormac Murphy, Tiarnan O’Donovan, Oisin Shortall (0-2), Cody Parker, Andrew Stuart Trainor (2-4), Brendan McCormack (0-2), Andriu Lynam, Aaron Murphy (3-1), Conor Hynes (1-0)
Subs: Cian Heavin, Cian Lawless (0-1), Dean Byrne (0-1), Lee Corcoran (0-1), Aaron Hanevy (0-1)

U17 Championship Round 2
Caulry 1-12
Moate 2-7
Our U17s picked up their second brace of points in this year’s championship when they overcame Moate in a hard-fought battle on Wednesday evening last.
Alan Malynn kicked off proceedings with his pointed-free after three minutes before Moate got motoring with a goal on the 9th minute to launch themselves into the lead. The homeside tallied up three wides prior to kicking their second score of the game, this a point on the quarter-hour mark. Senan Baker drew one back with his long-range effort on the 19th minute. However, the homeside responded in style with a well-worked goal around the Caulry defence. The teams then shared four points, Caulry’s two scores coming courtesy of Malynn’s placed-ball expertise and Moate’s two well-constructed points from play. A late converted-free from Malynn left Caulry trailing by four at the break.
A superb pass from Baker found Malynn who kicked for his fifth point of the game immediately after the resumption of play. A converted-free for both sides preceded the next score from play which came courtesy of James Buckley after combining nicely with Andrew Stuart Trainor. Tom Cloonan and Alan Lynam impressed in the Caulry defence throughout the game as another Malynn free left the narrowest of margins between the sides on the 43rd minute. The game went on a point-for-point basis, with three out of the next four scores coming from placed-balls and keeping Moate’s one-point lead in-tact right up until the 57th minute of the game. It was then when Caulry got lucky after some great vision from Baker who found Sean Murphy who rattled the back of the Moate net, edging our lads in front by two. Baker then stretched the lead to three moments later as the Caulry lads put up a tough fight against a late Moate surge. A late converted-free was too little too late for Moate as our lads escaped with the win on a scoreline of 1-12 to 2-7.
Team & Scorers: Ruairi Casey, Tiarnan O’Donovan, Tom Cloonan, Adam Doyle, Tadgh Baker, Sean Murphy (1-0), Alan Lynam, Conor Paul, Senan Baker (0-3, 1f), Aaron Murray, Shane Lawless, Oisin Shortall, James Buckley (0-1), Andrew Stuart Trainor, Alan Malynn (0-8, 7f)

U13 Championship Round 2
Caulry 8-15
Cill Óige 6-11
Our U13 boys picked up their first brace of points of this year’s championship campaign when they played Cill Óige in Rosemount for their Round 2 clash on Thursday evening last.
Caulry hit the ground running with a fine point from Lee Corcoran within seconds of throw-in. Cill Óige then booted for the first goal of the game on the 8th minute. However, the Caulry boys responded in style, with Aaron Buckley and Brian Doyle rattling the back of the Cill Óige net to put Caulry in the driving seat. Points from Corcoran and Rory Hatton preceded the opposition’s opening point on the 9th minute. Cill Óige then got a burst of life, scoring an unanswered 2-1 to momentarily take the lead. Simon O’Grady accounted for Caulry’s net two scores of the game as he tagged on 1-1. More points from Corcoran and Buckley sandwiched a point from play for Cill Óige. The homeside then registered their fourth goal of the game after a long-range effort dropped into the back of the Caulry net, but it was our boys who finished the half stronger with scores from Corcoran and Jack Killane leaving Caulry lead 5-8 to 4-4 at the break.
The teams shared six points in the opening minutes of the second half before three unanswered Cill Óige points cut the deficit to four. Hatton and Hugo McGowan made good strides forward, slotting over points to cushion our lead but it was still all to play for by the 52nd minute as the opposition rallied on with 1-1 without reply. The Caulry boys dug deep for the closing minutes of the game with scores from Doyle, O’Grady and Eoin Lynam widened the gap between the sides once again. The substitutes also done well when introduced with Kyle Nulty, Fionn Murphy and Sam Hatton defending well and Harry Hessen, Luke Berry and Seth Smyth making an impact up front. A late goal for the opposition meant Caulry were worthy victors at the fulltime whistle on a scoreline of 8-15 to 6-11.
Team & Scorers: Fionn O’Donovan, Ciaran Dunning, Michael McSharry, Hugo McGowan (0-1), Brain Doyle (1-2), Eoin Lynam (1-0), Eoin McCormack, Rory Hatton (0-2), Adrien Lefebvre, Simon O’Grady (3-3), Jack Kilane (0-1), Aaron Buckley (2-2), Lee Corcoran (1-4, 2f), John Paul, Tyler Mason

SFC Round 1
Caulry 0-5
Garrycastle 5-11
Following our promotion from intermediate ranks last October, our lads took to the field for their opening game in the senior championship in Athlone on Saturday evening last against reigning champions Garrycastle.
Despite getting off to a good start with Conor McCormack pointing inside the opening 20 seconds, Garrycastle set the tone for this clash with a well-taken goal moments later. A converted-free for the men in green and red stretched their lead to three before a ball forward from Caulry trickled out wide. Kevin Maguire made a good move forward on the 6th minute setting Neil Clinton up for a point. However, another converted-free for the opposition kept the three-point deficit in-tact. McCormack’s long-range point on the 8th minute preceded some missed chances for both sides. Garrycastle then kicked the next two points of the game. A foul on Andy O’Sullivan enabled Luke Buckley to draw on back as he converted the resulting free. However, it was Garrycastle who finished the half the better team, registering 1-3 to lead 2-7 to 0-4 at the break.
Caulry’s tally of missed chances grew in the opening minutes of the second half as Garrycastle rallied on, scoring another 1-3 without reply. The Garrycastle defence done well when put under pressure, easily defusing of a number of Caulry attacks. McCormack finally kicked our single score of the second half on the 52nd minute. However, that was as good as it got for our lads with the Garrycastle forwards continuing to impress, adding on 2-1 and prevailing on a scoreline of 5-11 to 0-5.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Glenn Carolan, Eoin Fox, Sean Fox, Kevin Maguire, Alan Fitzpatrick, Neil Clinton (0-1), Stephen Connolly, John Maguire, Luke Buckley (0-1, 1f), Paddy Sleator, Thomas Dunning, Colin Murphy, Conor McCormack (0-3), Andy O’Sullivan

Division 2A ACFL
Caulry 1-10
Moate 2-12
Our lads suffered a defeat to neighbours Moate in their opening game of the Division 2A ACFL on Monday evening last when they made the journey to Hogan Park.
Both sides were slow to settle, exchanging early wides before the homeside opened the scoring tally on the 4th minute with a point from play. Some miss-passes from Caulry trickled out wide as Moate drove on with a well-taken goal after working the ball up the field. Thomas Dunning then booted for Caulry’s first score of the game after combining nicely with Roan Sweeney. Our lads recycled the ball after two fine blocks from the Moate defence, with Sweeney eventually being fouled. The resulting free was slotted over the bar nicely by Colin Murphy. The teams traded frees, with Moate keeping their lead in-tact. However, a good move from Luke Buckley fell into the arms of Sweeney who was dragged down in the penalty area. Murphy again stood up to the plate, rattling the back of the Moate net to put our lads one point in front. This lead was short-lived as the homeside kicked the next two scores of the game, one from a free and one from play. Conor McCormack done well when introduced as he tore forward and sent over a superb point before a converted-free from Buckley saw it level pegging at the interval on a scoreline of 1-5 apiece.
Caulry suffered a blow early in the second half, with Sweeney being forced to retreat to the sin-bin after receiving a black card as Moate got off the a good start with a fine point from play. Stephen Connolly drew level moments later with this effort on the 35th minute but Moate made the most of their extra-man, replying with an unanswered 1-3. Pointed-frees from McCormack and Buckley sandwiched a point from play for Moate. The teams then shared four points in the closing ten minutes of the game to leave Moate victorious at the fulltime whistle on a scoreline of 2-12 to 1-10.
Team & Scorers: Michael McMahon, Eoin Shortall, Kevin Maguire, Sean Fox, Damien Dolan, Eoghan Grennan, Robbie Hickey, Stephen Connolly (0-1), Neil Clinton, Thomas Dunning (0-1), Colin Murphy (1-3, 3f), Adam Donoghue, Luke Buckley (0-2, 2f), Gary Flanagan, Roan Sweeney

Division 4B ACFL
Caulry 1-8
Moate 0-7
Our juniors had a successful start to their league campaign where they hosted Moate in the park on Tuesday evening last.
Moate accounted for the first two scores of the game, one from a free and one from play before Malynn slotted over Caulry’s opening point on the 7th minute. An attempt from Caulry went out wide. However, Conor Dolan broke down the ensuing kickout, setting Adam Donoghue up for a point. Some scoring chances for both sides went astray as Cialan Dollard sent over the next score of the game on the 14th minute. Moate levelled on the 24th minute with a converted-free. However, our lads got lucky when goal-keeper Ernie Buckley tore forward, laying the ball off the Dollard who rattled the back of the Moate net. A well-taken free from Malynn saw Caulry lead 1-4 to 0-3 at the break.
Our lads burst out of the tracks in the second half but were unlucky as two attempts of scores rattled back off the upright. Malynn then got Caulry motoring with another free after a foul on Alan Daly. Our lads hit the pos again twice before Moate drew one back on the 39th minute. Darren Hynds worked tirelessly in defence as the teams traded pointed-frees. A quickly taken free from Dollard set Daly up for a point on the 28th minute. Moate responded with another converted-free as the teams exchanged points late in the game securing Caulry the win on a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-7.

U17 Championship
Caulry 1-10
Lilliput Gaels 0-4
Our U17 lads got off to a winning start in their championship campaign when they hosted Lilliput Gaels in the park on a wet Wednesday evening last.
Lilliput Gaels were first off the mark with their point from play after eight minutes. A number of wasteful possessions and sloppy play preceded Caulry’s first score of the game, this coming courtesy of Alan Malynn after a fine pass from Sean Murphy. Our lads were patient in attack, with Malynn rounding off and accounting for our second score of the game. The game continued on a slow pace, with both sides struggling to find their shooting boots in the wet conditions as a superb long-range point from Senan Baker doubled the deficit before the halftime whistle.
A decent spell followed for our lads in the opening minutes of the second half, with Malynn converting three unanswered frees. Ruairi Casey dealt well under the high ball as some hard work out field from James Buckley paid dividends with Malynn adding another point. Lilliput Gaels then cut into the deficit with two points under pressure from the Caulry defence. Baker put the game to bed on the 48th minute as he rattled the back of the Lilliput Gaels’ net after being awarded a penalty. The teams shared three points before the final whistle, securing our lads the win on a scoreline of 1-10 to 0-4.
Team & Scorers: Ruairi Casey, Tiarnan O’Donovan, Tom Cloonan, Adam Doyle, Alan Lynam (0-1), Sean Murphy (0-1), Harry Stuart Trainor, Senan Baker (1-1), Conor Paul, Aaron Murray, Shane Lawless, Paul Hogan, Tadgh Baker, Alan Malynn (0-6, 3f), James Buckley (0-1)

U13 Championship
Caulry 2-11
Moate 3-13
Our U13 boys hosted Moate in the park on Thursday evening last for their first game of the championship.
Despite having a rocky start it was Moate who registered the first two scores of the game. Lee Corcocan responded in style with a score for Caulry, which was shortly followed by a point from Tyler Mason to level the match. Moate stretched their lead once again with two fine points on the 10th minute before Rory Hatton added Caulry’s third score of the game. The opposition got lucky on the 17th minute as they rattled the back of the Caulry net despite the best efforts from goalie Cian Malone. His Moate counter-part done well when put under pressure, stopping numerous shots from the Caulry forwards as Corcoran pointed for Caulry’s next score of the game. Moate then had a purple patch in the closing 10 minutes of the half, a period which yielded an unanswered 1-3.
Moate burst out of the tracks again in the second half, adding 1-1 early on. Despite what looked to be a mountain to climb, the Caulry boys never gave up as scores from Hatton and Simon O’Grady chipped away at the deficit. The teams then shared four points, with Hatton adding two for the homeside. The Moate goalie must be commended for his multiple saves throughout the game as it took 47 minutes before our boys could get the better of him. This goal coming courtesy of Corcoran. The game then went on a point-for-point basis as O’Grady and Hatton added for the homeside. Caulry then had a surge late in the game with Eoin McCormack and O’Grady contributing 1-1 to leave Moate leading 3-13 to 2-11 at the fulltime whistle.

U15 Championship
Caulry 9-19
Western Gaels 0-3
Our U15 lads had a great start to their championship campaign with a comprehensive victory over Western Gaels on Sunday evening last.
Our lads burst out of the tracks with a well-taken goal from Aaron Murphy inside the opening 60 seconds. Western Gaels soon found their scoring boots as they tapped over the opening point of the game. Andrew Stuart Trainor then forced a turnover, sending a pass into Oisin Shortall who finished with a fine point. Cormac Murphy put his name on the scoring sheet on the 4th minute with his well-taken point. A pointed-free for the opposition preceded Andrew Stuart Trainor’s first score of the game, this coming from a routine free. Western Gaels pointed again on the 9th minute before points from Shortall and Stuart Trainor stretched our lead. Tadgh Baker worked tirelessly in defence as a superb display of teamwork from the Caulry forwards set Shortall up for Caulry’s second goal of the evening on the 17th minute. A trio of points, two from Stuart Trainor and one from Cody Parker, saw Caulry lead 2-8 to 0-3 at the halftime whistle.
A scoreless second half was in store for the opposition as the Caulry boys rallied on with a number of impressive displays all over the field. Shortall got things underway with his point straight after the resumption of play after a fine catch from O’Donovan. Murphy added a point before Aindriu Lynam rattled the net to claim Caulry’s hattrick on the 33rd minute. Shortall and O’Donovan ruled the roost at centre field with Stuart Trainor stepping up when called upon in the forward line, adding a remarkable 4-2 in the second half. Sean Donnelly and Darragh Shortall dug deep in defence as the Western Gael boys struggled to notch up scores. Max O’Sullivan set up a number of fine attacks with his long-range, pin-point kickouts as a late goal from Aaron Hanevy sealed Caulry’s win on a scoreline of 9-19 to 0-3.
