ONGOING CLUB PROJECTS DEVELOPING WELL

Recently Athenry AFC has begun to convert our clubhouse attic, formerly used for storing footballs and other equipment this area has really begun to take shape. We must thank Jamie O’Driscoll & Co of Suburban Ceilings for completing the slabbing (labour free) and to Brian Sweeney of Frank Sweeney Auctioneers for not only providing the paint, but doing the painting too with a helping hand from our club treasurer Gerry McGough and to Tony Shaughnessy and Tommy Fahy for the electrical work. All voluntary too. Thanks to these great club members going over and above for AFC. Where would a club be without it's volunteers. In addition our new disability access ramp, stairs and water font have been finished by 'Kennys Civils'.

In the Over 35's B Semi Final on Thursday 7th July Athenry had a tight win on penalties over Oughterard. Ending 1-1at Full time it went to penalties which Athenry won 6-5 on penalties.
They booked their place following a very competitive and very entertaining game. The first half was a tight affair with neither team having any clear cut chances. Ten minutes into the second half and Mike Fahy latched onto a long ball before cutting inside and finding the top corner to put Athenry one nil up. It stayed this way until the very last kick of the game when Oughterard scored a fine free kick. On to penalties and it was Athenry who came out on top and now go forward to play the final against Kinvara in Eamon Deacy Park on August 10th.

GOALS GALORE IN SEMI FINAL HOME WIN

The SFAI Girls U14 Regional Semi-final ended in a fine win and fine entertainment in Moanbaun as it finished Athenry FC 6, Dunmore FC 3. This team have shown time and time again that they can score goals and they did so again today with Kara O'Neill x1, Jenni McNamara x2 & Mollie Noone x3 all chipping in to send the girls through to the final. This match really was a fantastic advertisement for the game with Athenry going 4 nil up by half time and Dunmore rallying to come back to 5-3, but Athenry showed resilience like Dunmore to finish the game with the win. Match report here.


RECOGNITION WELL DESERVED

U11's DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE NEWS

Athenry United ended their season at the semi final stage with heads held up high with a 7-11 result against Knocknacarra FC. Goalscorers for Athenry were Evan Hoarty (3), Eoin Sinnott (2) and Odhran Keaveney (2). The league represents an opportunity for clubs to bring players on in terms of skills and prepare them for competitive football seasons ahead starting with Under 12's next season.

MICHAEL BYRNE CUP SEMI FINAL RESULTS

Athenry lost out 2-0 to Mervue Utd away from home this evening at Fahy's Field with a goal in each half. Mervue will take on Salthill Devon as they beat Maree/Oranmore 2-1 in the other semi final. Well done and good luck to both sides in the final.


THE FOOTBALL NEVER STOPS!
Athenry U14 Girls won the Connacht Regional Cup quarter final with a 3-2 victory over Stonepark FC. Playing away in Abbeycartron in Longford it was an almighty effort to come away with the win. Within 5 minutes Amira Bouhlel had Athenry in the lead with a well taken finish and it looked like Athenry who had started the match strongly would have the upper hand with Michaela Hand performing wonderfully on the pitch. But the Longford Champions had other idea's and equalised against the run of play on 20 minutes with a long range effort. To further confound Athenry Stonepark took the lead shortly afterwards. With Athenry having a penalty saved just on half time it really was a case of trying to bounce back after the break and get the girls belief in their ability back. They battled hard and had good chances but it looked like they were going to have no luck on the day until a super effort from Sinead O'Mahoney made it 2-2. This galvanised the team and who else but Mollie Noone got the winner to give Athenry a tight win over a very accomplished Stonepark side. The hosts will count themselves very unlucky not to have progressed leading with just 10 minutes left. Well Done to both sides on a highly entertaining game for all those watching.

SENIOR 'A' END SEASON WITH A DRAW

Athenry Senior premier side drew 1-1 this evening with third placed Mervue United courtesy of a Joey Burke goal to complete their 22nd game of the Galway FA Premier Division. They finished in the runners up spot despite a strong challenge for the league title this season. Well Done lads.


ACCOMPLISHED HOARTY PERFORMANCE
Athenry U12 B team saw out their season with an excellent win over Knocknacarra C in a 2-1 away win. This entertaining game saw an early Robert Eastwood strike after just 3 minutes as more chances could have seen them increase their slender lead before half time. In the second half Jason Adanu grabbed another Athenry goal as both sides continued to create chances. With Knocknacarra searching for a goal they got their reward towards the end of the contest to make it a nervy ending for the visitors as Knocknacarra also struck the bar in added time, but Athenry gave a 'gutsy'  performance to hold on for the win. Captain on the day was Evan Hoarty who worked tirelessly throughout which also gained him the well deserved MOTM award.

This proved to be an emphatic performance for Athenry over Kiltullagh Pioneers as Bruno De Sousa's man of the match performance also saw another Adam Lavelle hat trick that gave their hosts a tough match. Kiltullagh to their credit kept on going until the last minute despite Athenry's dominance. Overall very good Athenry team performance from keeper to up front and the bench. This puts them second in the league with two to play and two points behind Colemanstown who have only one game to play .Well done exceptional performances throughout the side. Man of the match was awarded to Bruno De Sousa. Scorers: Adam Lavelle, Bruno DeSousa, Sam Nyhan, Assists: Matthew Collins, Norbert Gaiderovas and Sam Nyhan.


​​WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS

U19 Girls are the Premier Cup Champions after a fine display at Eamonn Deacy Park where they beat Knocknacarra FC. An early goal straight from kick off was a fantastic start for Athenry and settled them early on as a double from Nina Bodamer was enough to bring the cup home to Moanbaun. Well Done all. Match Report here.


SENIORS HAVE IT ALL TO DO

No time to rest as Senior A fixtures keep on coming as Athenry will put aside any disappointment from the 2-1 set back to Devon over the weekend and take on third placed Mervue Utd on Wednesday night in the premier division at Fahy's Field with kick off at 7pm.


LAVELLE TRIPLE STRIKE 'AT THE WOODS'

In the Boys U16 Championship on Sunday in Doughiska, an Adam Lavelle hat trick proved the undoing of Merlin Woods/Medtronic FC in a 4-2 away win. With a Hugh McDonald goal 
also being added, these lads run of form has been nothing short of breath taking as the season comes to its conclusion. Great team effort from this side as they push league leaders Colemanstown FC all the way.


U14 GIRLS SHOW RESILIENCE AND 'FIGHT'
Athenry won 4-2 after they started the match with just 8 players against Salthill Devon and despite this took the lead from a Katie Noone goal. With more players arriving after 15 minutes Athenry had a number of chances to go further ahead. Salthill however levelled and the teams went in level at half time. Molly Noone scored after the restart and with further goals from Kate Kennedy and Jenni McNamara Athenry went on to win the match despite a Salthill Devon come back. Player of the match was Kate Kennedy and we must Thank Salthill Devon for facilitating a later kick off and commend them for their excellent pitch and facilities.
