Youths Rugby:

Creggs U13’s made the short journey to Athlone to Play Buccaneers RFC on Saturday morning and lost out on a scoreline of 24-17. A good learning experience for the lads who scored a couple of early tries in the first half but found it hard to break Buccaneers down after the break and a score from the Athlone outfit with the last play of the game secured their victory. Training continues for the U13’s next Friday at 7pm. The U13’s have no game now for two weeks.

Creggs U15’s travelled to Ballina last Sunday for a league game and came away with a comprehensive 56-8 victory. Creggs scores came from Tries from Jack Tucker, Mark Purcell, Darren Gately, Aaron Lyons, Ethan Glennon and Rory Callaghan and conversions from Mark Purcell and Jack Tucker on the day capped off a very good win. It was a good performance by the lads who lost their opening two league games. Prominent for Creggs on the day were Luke Divilly, Ronan Lambe, Ben Finnerty, Conor McNulty, Cian Glennon and Brandon Kilcommons. The U15’s have no league now for two weeks. Training continues Thursday at 7pm.

Creggs U16’s train next Thursday at 7pm and are due to play Sligo in the league in Creggs next weekend.Time to be confirmed at time of going to press.

Creggs U18’s played their first league match of the campaign last Saturday night against Castlebar RFC away. Playing without a few regulars and playing a team who already had two league games under the belts, it took the lads a while to get going and they were especially impressive in the second half eventually going down 28-15. Scores for Creggs on the night came from Tries from Mairtin Quinn and Eoghan Coyle as well as a penalty and conversion from Shane Purcell. Next weekend the U18’s will play Buccaneeers RFC away in Athlone on Bank Holiday Monday at 1pm.. Hopefully a few more of the squad will be back for the game in what promises to be a tight affair. Training Friday Night in Creggs at 8.30pm.

Creggs U14’s will train next Friday at 7pm. Next weekend the U14’s have a home game against Ballina RFC, day to be confirmed.
