It was all about keeping the league form going in Ballinderry last Sunday morning against Nenagh Celtic (c), the result spoke for itself 7-0 to Shannon Rangers, with goals from “you know who” John Flannery with 2, Barry Cahalan a further 2 and I each Darren Carroll, Dave Hogan and Josh McKenna. This was a confident performance from the Rangers and in its current form promotion should be a realistic target. Thanks to the lads who turned up, it is great to have a big squad to pick from. The U/13’s game was called off on Saturday but training for both U/13’s and U/16’s went ahead. There was a minutes silence before the junior game due to a bereavement in the family of one of the players, our thoughts are with them. Training/fixtures will be sent via text. Players don’t forget any outstanding membership/insurance to be paid asap.
