Westmeath County Underage
Once again Caulry are well represented on the various Westmeath county teams. Thomas Dunning and James Clavin are members of the Westmeath under 16s who are playing a number of games in preparation for the Gerry Reilly and Fr Manning Cup tournaments. At Under 15 level, Olan Healy, Rory Mullins and Roan Sweeney are playing. The Under 14 are involved in a number of blitzs, and we are represented by Alan Malynn, Senan Baker, Tom Cloonan, Sean Murphy and Conor Paul. While the Westmeath made a tame exit from the final minor All-Ireland series, our representivities , Colin Murphy and Neil Clinton will hope to have a better impact in the inaugural Under 17 series starting shortly. We wish all our players and their colleagues well in their endeavours to bring success to our county and no doubt will return better players as a result.

Under 16 League Division 1
Caulry 1-5
Coralstown Kinnegad 6-14
Caulry had the highly rated Coralstown Kinnegad as visitors on Sunday evening week last. In sweltering summer conditions, the only sunshine football was played by the boys from the north end club. Proceeding to put on an exhibition of football they led 3-9 to 0-3 at the break against a very disappointing home side who were lethargic and lack lustre throughout.
On an evening of very few positives for the home side, James Clavin was once again outstanding between the posts, producing a series of saves including a magnificent penalty save from his county colleague, Shane Fleming. Captain for the evening, Glenn Carolan was defiant throughout. The little human dynamo that is Olan Healy tried everything to get his team going and could no way be faulted. In attack only Roan Sweeney carried the necessary threat, but lacked the support to make a more profound impact. Hopes of retaining this title so brilliantly won last year have now faded and we must up our performance for the remaining league fixtures and the commencement of the championship.
Team: James Clavin, Leroy Coughlan, Rory Mullins, Luke Hamilton, Ciaran Gaynor, Glenn Carolan, Colm Shortall, Zach Nolan, Olan Healy, Shane Hynes, Thomas Dunning (0-1), Roan Sweeney (1-1), Luke Buckley, James Carey, Adam Donoghue (0-3), Sean Malone, Jamie Conlon, Conor McKnight, Pablo Matteo, Josh Jocher.
