Unlucky for Under 14s

Posted on: July 4th, 2017 by admin
Great effort by our Under 14s in Thursday night’s final v St Colmcilles in Stamullen. Despite playing against the wind and rain in the first half Dunshaughlin played with great composure and created a number of chances. When trailing by two points a Darren Murphy effort was brilliantly save by the Cilles keeper Danny Ehicoya and his side then went up the other end to grab vital points that left them seven in front at the break. The black and amber cause look hopeless soon after the restart with two St Colmcille’s goals but the lads showed their true colours from then to the end.

Playing great football they dominated and hauled back the lead. Points from Calum Deehan, Conor Gray, Jack O’Riordan and a goal from Aaron Murphy and another brace from Conor Gray brought the margin down to 5 points. A goal bound effort that came off the inside of an upright but refused to drop into the net left the black and ambers cursing their bad luck and at the final whistle the Cilles were ahead by 2-8 to 1-7. Well done to all the panel and mentors, runners up in both the Feile final and the Under 14 decider. Keep it going lads.

Win for our Under 15s

Posted on: June 14th, 2017 by admin

Under 15 Sevens

Dunshaughlin took part in the Under 15 seven a side competition on Saturday June 10th in Dunganny and came away winners of the shield competition. The panel of 11 was made up of seven under 15’s and four under14’s. Despite losing the first two games to Moynalty/Carnaross and Rathkenny that eliminated them from the cup competition the Dunshaughlin boys dug deep and in the quarter final of the shield defeated St. Olivers 10 points to 8 earning a place in the semi final against Walterstown. At the end of a very tightly fought match the referee awarded the match to Dunshaughlin, Walterstown felt the referee did not count one of their scores and Dunshaughlin very sportingly offered a 21 metre shoot out which went to sudden death after both teams scored their first 5 each, Jared Rushe was the seventh man up for Dunshaughlin and he calmly slotted over the blackspot after a Walterstown miss.

The opposition in the final was Dunderry and in another nail biting encounter Dunshaughlin held onto win by 9 points to 8.

The panel with scores in brackets was Adam Territt, Cillian McCool (2), Conor Gray (5), Fursey Blake (1), Jake Martin (4), James Traynor (5), Jared Rushe (2), Ruairi Kinsella (11), Sean Walsh (2), Shane Kennedy (4) & Tommy Toal (5).

Dunshaughlin clubman Frank Gallogly vice-chairman of Coiste fe 18 presented the shield to team captain Tommy Toal.

The club thanks John Kavanagh for running the competition despite some late withdrawals by teams.

Back row: Ultan Blake, selector, Jake Martin, Cillian McCool, Shane Kennedy Conor Gray,  Fursey Blake & Derry McCool, selector.

100 not out for Maloney

Posted on: May 18th, 2017 by admin

Last night’s championship match marked 100 championship appearances for Ray Maloney. The midfielder has been on the go for quite some time but he has changed over the years. From his early Boyzone/Westlife loving days, Maloney was known on the pitch for his fiery temper and short fuse. He sported white boots, green boots, blue boots, he bleached his hair and grew a goatee. He even bleached the goatee. He then wore a blue knee bandage even though his knee was fine. He even bought a leather jacket at one stage. We can all rememeber his sending off against Skryne in Navan when he threw his gloves into the crowd and even blue kisses at them. Maloney however, has matured since then. His short fuse is gone but his taste in music still remains the same. Well done on reaching the milestone and great to hear you’ll be playing for another few years at least.
