Minor League
Caulry 1-11
Rosemount 1-8
Caulry made the short journey to Rosemount on Thursday evening last for their latest Division 1 Minor fixture.
Caulry hit the ground running with two early points from Stephen Connolly and Stephen Byrne. Rosemount got off the mark in the 7th minute with four points in quick succession. Stephen Byrne kicked the next point for Caulry. A goal for Rosemount on the 24th minute left five points between the sides at the interval on a scoreline of 1-6 to 0-4.
On the resumption, the Caulry lads worked hard and some nice combined team worked resulted in Paddy Sleator hitting the back of the Rosemount net. Rosemount kicked the next two scores of the game. A pointed free from Stephen Byrne left just three points between the sides on the quarter hour mark. Great fielding from Conor McCormack enabled Stephen Connolly to add to the scoring tally. Conor McCormack pointed for Caulry to leave just one point between the sides late in the game. Late points for Rosemount meant Caulry trailed 1-8 to 1-11 at the final whistle.

Matt Slevin Under 10 Tournament

On Saturday last, Caulry U10 travelled to Ballynacarrigy for the annual Matt Slevin Tournament. As we are in the middle of the holiday season, we were short a few players, however we still fielded two strong teams. Weather conditions were perfect for football and the players did not let us down. There were two groups of three team, so we had a white team in group A and a red team in group B. 
The white team started their first game a bit slowly and found themselves 2 point down early on but with some great defending from Tiarnan O'Donovan we settled into the game. We then started to find our range in front of goal and Tadgh Baker got a brace of points with the help of Cian Lawless. When we came out in the second half we really got going and scores from Andrew Stuart Trainor put us into the lead. Unfortunately we conceded a point with the last kick of the game to end with a draw. We took on CFCW in the second game which was highly competitive and entertaining. With Ian Malone leading the attack we took an early lead. Brave defending from Dara Shorthall made sure there were few opportunities for the CFCW attack and when they did break through Kyle Cunningham pulled off some amazing saves in goal. With determined support play from Tiarnan and Tadhg, a few late scores sealed the win. The whites finished second in the group on scoring difference and progressed to the shield final against St Josephs. As this was our third game in a row players were starting to get tired and despite the best efforts of James O'Brien in defence and Conor Devaney up front we lost out by 3 points in the end. 
The red team took on St Joseph's in their first game. There was not a lot between the teams but strong performances from Max O'Sullivan and Eoin Murphy put us in a strong position early on in the game. We took every chance which came our way as Brendan Kelly McCormack showed great composure in front of goal. In the second half we continued to perform well and with Oisin Shortall giving a master class of tackling, there was no way back for St Joseph's as we ran out winners by 3 points. Then we took on St Malachys who were strong favourites for the competition and despite the best efforts of Rafe Bradbury Hughes and Cormack Murphy we could not match the opposition who ran out comfortable winners. We qualified for the Plate final against CFCW and the players were fired up for the last match. Aaron Hanevy showed how much he has improved this year with a massive effort, and with Ronan Flaherty scoring at will up front, there was only going to be one winner in this final. All players performed to their best and fully deserved their win by 10 points to 1.
Well done to every one of the players, who should be very proud of their effort on the day. Many thanks to everyone who travelled, and a special thanks to Shane Farrell and Ballynacarrigy for hosting us. The panel of players on the day were, Tadhg Baker, Andrew Stuart Trainor, Tiarnan O'Donavan, Ian Malone, Conor Devany, Cian Lawless, Dara Shorthall, Kyle Cunningham, James O'Brian, Ronan Flaherty, Rafe Bradbury Hughes, Brendan Kelly McCormack, Dylan Kelly Mc Cormack, Oisin Shorthall, Aaron Hanevy, Eoin Murphy, Cormack Murphy, Max O'Sullivan.

Under 14 Championship Division 2

Caulry 1-8

Tyrrellspass 2-6

Caulry travelled to Kilbeggan on Sunday morning last for this second round championship match against Kilbeggan/St Joseph’s. On a damp and drizzly morning, the football on display did little to lift the atmosphere as the game was a stop start, free ridden affair. Caulry were second fiddle in most positions early on, as the home side went into a three point lead. Our lads registered three scores before the concession of a soft continuous goal left the combination side in front at the interval. Early pressure from our boys resulted in a disallowed goal possibly due to a square ball infringement. Buoyed by this lucky escape, the hosts enhanced their lead to six points. However, inspired by Olan Healy, Caulry clawed their way back to level terms. In a frantic last few minutes, Kilbeggan/ St Joseph’s grabbed the winning score, as we spurned a number of opportunities to draw or take the spoils. In a disappointing result and display, Tom Cloonan and Olan Healy stood out.

Team: James Clavin, Tom Cloonan, Glenn Carolan, Rory Mullins, Colm Shortall, Zach Nolan, Daniel Buckley, Olan Healy (1-3), James Carey, Luke Hamilton, Thomas Dunning, Sean Malone, Jamie Conlon, Adam Donoghue (0-5), Roan Sweeney, Alan Malynn, Senan Baker, Shane Lawless, James Buckley.

Junior Championship
Caulry 5-19
The Downs 2-9
Caulry played host to The Downs for their latest JFC fixture and ran out comfortable winners on a wet Sunday morning last.
The Downs opened with a fine point from play, which was shortly followed by points from Peter Smyth and Stephen Woods. Both teams traded scores and by the quarter hour mark, The Downs led Caulry 0-6 to 0-4. It was level pegging after a goal on the 18th minute from Sean Clinton. The home side made a crucial burst just before half time with a quick scoring burst, which yielded 1-4. At the interval, there was seven points between the sides, on a scoreline of 2-8 to 0-7.
On the resumption, Caulry built up a commanding lead with three quick points from Stephen Woods, Sean Clinton and Eoin Donohoe. The Downs narrowed the gap as they hit the back of the Caulry net on the 33rd minute.  The Caulry lads pushed on as Robbie Ryan, Stephen Woods and Ernie Buckley added to the scoring tally. Caulry hit the back of the Down’s net for a fourth time with a goal from Mark Fitzpatrick half-way through the second half. Caulry kicked the next five scores of the game. The Downs were unlucky as they missed several goal chances throughout the second half. A late point and a goal for The Downs meant the match finished on a scoreline of 5-19 to 2-9.
Team & Scorers: Cillian Nagle, Sean O’Neill, Pat Buckley, Ciaran Allen, Sean Clinton (1-1), Ernie Buckley (0-2), Jack O’Kelly Lynch, Micky Fitzpatrick (0-1), Eoin Donohoe (0-2), Killian Healy (0-1), Peter Smyth (1-6, 1f, 1 ‘45’), Stephen Connolly (1-0), Hugh Allen, Stephen Woods (0-5, 2f), Robbie Ryan (1-1)
