Minors: The Minor team recorded its second league victory in as many games following a comprehensive victory away to St. Croans in Enfield on Sunday last. Final scoreline: St Brigid’s 3-14, St. Croan’s 0-9. Team and scorers: Shane Mannion, Conor McNiece, Brian Stack, Alan Daly (1-0), Martin Nolan, Conor Murray, Ciaran Walsh, Conal O’Brien, Eamon Cunnane (1-1), Robbie Fallon (0-3), Luke Carty (0-2), John Cunningham (0-1), Jack McDonnell (0-4), Conor Gleeson (1-3), Conor Quinn. Subs used: Cormac McDonnell, Ross Flanagan, Paul Daly, Eoin Gleeson, Mark Carson.

U-16s: The U-16s had their second league outing on Wednesday evening of last week in Kiltoom against St. Dominic’s and narrowly prevailed on a scoreline of 1-12 to 1-10. There were a number of changes to the starting team and all the players who came in made a good impression. Dominic’s came to Kiltoom looking for a win and battled hard all evening. They got some brilliant scores and worked well as a team. However, St. Brigid’s are coming together as a good team and the squad is starting to look very good. In the second half, the introduction of Donnchadh Gately and Tommie Glynn really freshened things up when it was needed. At times, Brigid’s passing into the forwards meant the work rate was outstanding.  Jimmy Curley and Cian McBrearty were outstanding in midfield and again the backs all performed very well in particular Darren Carroll while Seamus Smith and Colin Daly were the best of the forwards. Team: Danny Sugrue, Keelan Connor, Damon Daly, Eoin Minagh John Leonard, Darren Carroll, Gavin Byrne, Jimmy Curley, Kealon Byrne, Cian McBrearty, Eddie Nolan, Shane Furey, Kealon Byrne, Colin Daly, Brian Derwin, Seamus Smith  Subs: Chris Killian, Cathal Sweeney, Ronan Campbell, Donnchadh Gately, Eoin Egan, Tommie Glynn.
