Kilkerrin United completed an historic treble on Saturday evening in Lecarrow when they defeated Hodson Bay Athletic 2-1 to add the RDFL First Division Cup to the RDFL Division One Championship & the TP Brennan Connacht Shield. Hodson Bay started the brighter and were unlucky not to have taken an early lead when a close-range effort came back off the post.

Declan Murphy broke the deadlock in the 24th minute when he rifled home a shot in what was Kilkerrin’s first attack. In the 44th minute Keith Mahon was upended in the penalty area and Declan Murphy doubled the lead from the penalty spot. Hodson Bay Athletic pulled a goal back early in the second half but they were unable to find an equaliser and Kilkerrin held on for victory.

Well done to all the players & management on a remarkable season.

The U9s had a difficult test against Roscommon on Sunday evening in Glenamaddy in the rain, both Europa and Champions teams played great football and kept trying. 
The U12 girls had their first match of the year in Castleplunkett.  The final scoreline of 5-1 did not reflect what was a very entertaining game. The side netting, goal posts and Castleplunkett goalie all stopped the girls from scoring.   Scorer Courtney Parsons.
