Creggs 7 Galwegians 5

Creggs U15’s secured their qualification for the League Semi final after a hard fought 7-5 win over Galwegians on Sunday morning in Creggs

Really Creggs should have had this game well and truly sewn up in the first half when they let a few scores get away from them however they did have a 7-0 half time lead after a try from James Brandon and conversion from Shane Purcell after 20 minutes. Played in very heavy conditions after the early morning rain both teams were finding it hard to move the ball wide and mistakes were plentiful.

Towards the end of the second half Creggs were attacking the Galwegians line however after a turnover and a loose kick by Creggs, Galwegians ran the pitch and scored a try with the last play of the game however they missed the kick leaving the final score 7-5 to Creggs.

Although they have qualified for the semi final Creggs still have one more group game against Buccaneers next weekend in Athlone.

Creggs: Ian Conlon, Melvin Conteh, Brian Maloney, Brandon Hanmore, David O Gorman, Michael Brandon, James Brandon, Adam Finnerty, Eoghan Coyle, Shane Purcell, Niall Cunniffe, Cian Gately, Reece Gilligan, Adam Canny, Padraic Gaffey, Dylan Crehan, Michael Conroy

Creggs RFC were honoured today with a visit from Ireland and Lions star Gordon Darcy. Beautiful weather and a large socially distanced crowd welcomed Gordon and his brother Ian to Creggs. He is on day two of a four day 850km charity cycle raising funds for Barretstown.
Gordon now a successful children's book author had many young fans waiting for him with copies of his books for signing. Gordon Darcy complimented Creggs RFC on the fabulous new development (dressing rooms and gym) which is under construction and the 4g pitch which is the only one of its kind in Connacht.
He also commended the policy which sees the facility used by other local sports clubs.
We wish Gordon well as he endeavors to complete his journey back to Dublin at the weekend.
A legend in every sense of the word.
