Shannon Rangers continued winning ways last Sunday in Ballymackey with a 3-2 victory, we went ahead through a Josh McKenna penalty, then Darragh Haugh bagged the second. Barry Cahalan knocked in the third after half time from a Ray Burke free kick, but the home team got back into it with two goals but Rangers held on to stay top at Christmas. The u/16’s had no game at the weekend and the u/13’s played a worthwhile friendly between themselves.

The ‘Tip of the Week’ is again on Fire Prevention- most fires start in the kitchen so ensure you keep an extinguisher or fire blanket handy. Keep cookers clean, grease is dangerous, always place pot handles inward.
