Pride of place this week goes to our senior footballers who overcame the challenge of a gritty Old Leighlin team to qualify for the quarter final of the Michael Lyng motors S.F.C. at Spellman park Kildavin on Saturday last. Tinryland led by 5 points at the interval with an early Glenn Doyle goal edging the men in blue and white ahead. Old Leighlin were back on level terms mid- way through the second half but Tinryland re grouped and a sterling second half performance left the final score Tinryland 1-11 Old Leighlin 1-5. Tinryland had outstanding performers in John Murphy, John Paul Moore, Rory Doyle, Conor Byrne, Niall Lowry, Diarmaid Walshe and Paul Broderick. The quarter final with Mount Leinster Rangers has been fixed for week ending 16th September.

Both junior teams exited the championship at the hands of Naomh Eoin in the past week. In the J.F.C. (B) played at the Training centre on Wednesday last Tinryland’s 3rd squad lost out to the Myshall team on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-4. Tinryland’s best players in this game were Joey Ryan, Gregg Murphy, Richard Whyte, Barry Power and Seamus Curran.

In the J.F.C. (A) Naomh Eoin proved too strong for Tinryland’s second squad winning out by 1-10 to 0-6. Tinryland’s most prominent players in this game were Chris Townsend, Padraig Whelan, Padraig Townsend, Conor Ryan, Colm Kearney until injured, and Niall Barrett. The Junior (A) squad will now face Asca to determine who retains their J.F.C. (a) status next year.

The juvenile section of Tinryland G.F.C. are running a competition fundraiser in conjunction with the All Ireland football final between Dublin and Tyrone. We want your guess for the time that the first goal will be scored in minutes and seconds. Each guess costs €2. All juvenile players have cards and all support will be gratefully appreciated.

The club extends sympathy to the Byrne family from Rathcrogue on the passing of Mrs Mary Byrne on Friday last. Mrs Byrne was laid to rest after requiem Mass in Tinryland on  Monday.
