The firsts faced Creggs on Sunday last but were in serious trouble before the start with many players out through injury. In the end we had to give second best to a team determined to impress ahead of their Cawley Cup final. The final score was 20-15 to Creggs. Castlebar’s scores coming from Darren Claasen with two tries and a conversion and Robbie Cusack with a penalty. This was a weakened team and with next weekend now gaining added importance all Castlebar fans are asked to come out for the final game of the season against Corrib in Cloondeash at 3pm. If we win we will officially be in the top sixteen in the country and qualify for the All Ireland Junior Cup.
Castlebar :Alan Gavin, Paddy Durkan, Kevin Cox, Alex Goor, Sheamus Devaney, Rayno DeCock, Mike Campbell, Tadgh Kirby, Christy Cusack, Robbie Cusack, Simon O’Malley, Darren Claasen, Mike Power, Nigel Byrne, Paddy Flannelly.
