Junior B Championship 
Caulry opened their campaign in the Junior B Championship when they entertained St Marys, Rochfortbridge at home last Tuesday evening in the round-robin section of the competition. Chasing the game from the off, Caulry were unable to match a fitter and more determined St Marys side who took the spoils on a scoreline of 2-20 to 2-10.
Team & Scorers : Stephen Woods, Jack O'Kelly-Lynch, Declan Donohoe, Ciaran Allen, Jack O'Meara, Ernie Buckley, Keith Mc Menamen, John Maguire (0-1), Mark Fitzpatrick, Jason Conlon (0-3), Nicky Killane (0-3), Eddie Daly, Eric Fallon, James Daly (0-1), Liam Muldoon (1-1). Subs Used : Evan Roarke (1-0), Philip Dully, Shane Nugent, Gavin Shortall, 
Larry Nugent Memorial U10 Tournament Finals
The Finals of the above were played on Saturday last in Caulry. As usual a feast of good football was in store for all the enthusiastic support. In order to accommodate all teams and provide meaningful game time for all clubs and players, clubs were given the opportunity to play one, two or three teams. In the one team plate final, Castledaly and Millmore Gaels were not deterred by the early start and produced a fine game of football. The greater strength in depth of the Ballymore/Milltown combination saw them through in the end.

This was followed by the two team shield final. This was hotly contested.  In the first match Maryland/Tang and Moate each won a match. Maryland/Tang then took on Rosemount and narrowly prevailed in both matches. It was then the turn of the Lilywhites to take on the Black and Amber and in the best traditions of these two clubs, the young players gave their all, with Moate securing the two hard earned victories to force a play-off with Maryland/Tang. This produced a nail biting contest with the greater resolve of Moate securing a victory by the narrowest of margins. Amidst great jubilation joint captains, Thomas Berry and Rys Rawlings accepted the winning Shield.

The three team event for the cup followed in the evening. Garrycastle’s three teams took on Tubberclaire first. After an impressive showing Garrycastle put themselves in a strong position by winning two and drawing one of their three matches. Tubberclaire then took on the hosts, and after three close encounters, honours were even with one win each and a draw. After a short break, Caulry were back in action against Garrycastle with the difficult task of needing three victories to secure the cup. Three ding-dong close encounters followed  with the Caulry boys getting the three wins necessary to bring home the Larry Nugent Memorial Cup for the first time in four years. Afterwards, Alan Nugent grandson of Larry, presented the cup to the joint winning captains, Luke Hamilton, Daniel Buckley and Emma Farrell much to the delight of their delirious team mates and  supporters.   
Caulry’s under 10 winning panel was made up of the following:
James Clavin, Leah Quigley, Glen Carolan, Olan Healy, Thomas Dunning, Luke Hamilton (capt), Alan Malynn, James Carey, Adam Donoghue, Rory Mullins, Charlie Malone, Lee Roy Coughlan, Colm Shortall, Zach Nolan, Daniel Buckley, Shane Hynes, Conor McKnight, Luke Buckley, Oisin Murphy, Annaless Paredo, Ruari Casey, Padraig Murphy, Ciaran Gaynor, Tom Cloonan, Jamie Conlon, Senan Baker, Emma Farrell, Shane Lawless, Fiona Broderick, Mark Kerr, Dylan Joyce, Josh Jocker, Adam Watson, Jack O Donovan, Adam Watson, Sean O Flaherty, Sean Malone.

Under 12s
Caulry took on Kinnegad last Tuesday in their final game of the Championship. Caulry were unbeaten in the Championship prior to this game and needed a win to top the table and earn the title of Champions.  Kinnegad fielded two strong teams and two excellent games were on show for the great support on the night. Despite a very strong challenge from both Kinnegad teams the Caulry lads showed their class and determination to run out winners in both games .Winning the Championship was due to a lot of hard work on the training ground where the players showed a willingness to learn and a determination to win. Well done to all the players and keep up the skills and training for next year.

Many thanks to Jack O’Meara and Kevin Maguire, who refereed both games, and allowed a free flowing and entertaining game.

Teams: Christian Stephens, Adam Mullins, Colin Murphy, Darcy Lawless, Dylan Lowry, Eoin Shortall, Sean Fox, Jack Sheehan, Ciaran Geoghegan, Liam Malynn, Aaron Ganley, Shane Cleary.
