Any players or supporters who have still to pay their membership for 2013 can still do so at the clubhouse for the next two Monday evening between 8.30pm and 9.30pm, or if that is not convenient by calling to Bernie Green’s (club registrar) house in Aughamore Lower. We had two senior league games over the past week.  On Tuesday last we were away to Clonguish.  A good summer’s evening set the stage for this encounter.  The home side landed the opening 2 points, both from play.  Dromard responded with 3 points coming from Declan Mimnagh (2) and Emmet Masterson (1), all from play.  Clonguish regained the lead with 2 points.  Dromard then scored the next 4 points without reply before our opponents landed 2 more points which was followed by a Ross McNerney free to leave the half time score Dromard 0.8 Clonguish 0.6.   In the second half both sides exchanged a brace of points before Clonguish reduced our lead to one with a further point.  It was the Newtown men who got through for a decisive late goal to claim both points on the scoreline Dromard 0.10 Clonguish 1.9.  Team and scorers;  Damien Sheridan, Paul McGee, Peter Masterson, James Mimnagh, John Sheridan, Peter Reynolds, Mícheál Reilly, Noel Reynolds, Emmet Masterson (0.2), Bernard Sheridan, Ronan McEntire, Kevin Donohoe, Ross McNerney (0.3) 1 free, Declan Mimnagh (0.5) 1 free, Gary Maguire.  Subs used.  Donie Conefrey, Cathal Conefrey, Gavin McNerney, Kieran McStay.  Other sub on the evening was Enda Kiernan. On Saturday last Mostrim were visitors to Pairc na Gael in our second outing last week in the senior league.  A Francis McGee point from play opened the scoring.  Mostrim responded in emphatic style scoring an unanswered 1.3.  Both sides registered further scores to leave the half time score Dromard 0.4 Mostrim 1.6.  The visitors further extended their lead on the resumption.  A Francis McGee goal from a free and a point from play narrowed the margin.  While both teams found their range again with other points but at the final whistle it was Mostrim who came out on top on the score 1.14 to 1.7.  Team and scorers.  Damien Sheridan, Paul McGee, John Sheridan, James Mimnagh, Kevin Donohoe, Peter Reynolds, Mícheál Reilly, Noel Reynolds, Emmet Masterson, Bernard Sheridan, Ronan Mc Entire, Gary Maguire, Ross McNerney (0.1) 1 free, Francis McGee (1.4) 1.0 free, Declan Mimnagh (0.1.)  Subs used;  James Martin (0.1) and Donie Conefrey.  Other subs on the evening were Enda Kiernan, Gavin McNerney, Kieran McStay.  On Sunday next senior championship commences.  We will be pitted against St. Brigid’s Killashee with Keenan Park Ardagh being the venue.  Best wishes and good luck to our players and mentors in this encounter and for the duration of the competition.  We would urge our faithful supporters to come to get behind our players.
