Intermediate Championship Playoff Swinford v Tourmakeady

Swinford_GAA_Crest

Intermediate Championship Relegation Playoff

Swinford maintained their Intermediate status for 2018 with a three point win against Tourmakeady in the relagation playoff played in Bekan on Saturday evening,

Tourmakeady opened the scoring but this was the only time they led in the game as Swinford equalised through Kevin McShea and once they extended their lead with a point from Michael Prendergast they kept for the lead for the rest of the game. Points from a free from Liam Moran, Mark Forkan and one from play by Liam Moran extended the Swinford lead as Tourmakeady kicked a number of wides. A quickly taken 45 led to another point from Liam Moran and James Sweeney extended the Swinford lead to 6 points. Just before the break Tourmakeady got their second point to leave the game at the interval Swinford 0-7 Tourmakeady 0-2.

Tourmakeady got the opening point of the second half before a free kick for overcarrying by the goalkeeper allowed Jack McDonnell to open his account. Tourmakeady cancelled this out before a great run by Mark Forkan allowed James Devaney to get a score. At this stage all six of the Swinford forwards had scored. Jack McDonnell added another free that was wiped out by a soft free to Tourmakeady. Points from Kevin McShea, Liam Moran and Jack McDonnell pushed the Swinford lead out to 8 points.

The game appeared to be getting away from Tourmakeady but three points and then a goal brought it back to a 2 point game and a very nervy finish. Kevin McShea got a crucial point and try as they could Tourmakeady could not breach the Swinford resolute defence.

The game ended Swinford 0-14 Tourmakeady 1-8. After surviving the last few years Tourmakeady go down to the Junior ranks while Swinford have a lot of work to do for 2018 though its a very young team and under the management of Tom Byrne can surely get back to the top levels of club football.

Intermediate Championship

Despite a very courageous display our Intermediate team were beaten by The Neale on a scoreline of Swinford 1-15 Neale 2-16. We now play Tourmakeady in a relegation playoff next weekend.

The Neale got off to the better start and scored the first three points of the game. Jack McDonnell led the Swinford comeback with three points of his own, including two frees. In the 7th minute The Neale got the oepning goal of the game and followed up with a point. Liam Moran then struck with three points, including two frees to put 1 between the teams after 12 minutes. The Neale struck back with four points before Jack McDonnell strick the back of the net in the 23rd minute to bringthe gap back to 2. The neale got the next two points which were soon cancelled out by two points from Liam Moran. Then just before the half time whistle The Neale got the key score of the game with their second goal. At half time it was Swinford 1-8 The Neale 2-10

Swinford started off the second half the better team but a number of chances were not taken and it was the 6th minute before second half substitute James Devaney got the first score. Jack McDonnell quickly followed up with another point to leave the goal between the teams. The Neale got one point back that was immediately wiped out by a point from Kevin McShea. The Neale stretched their lead with the next two points before a free from Jack McDonnell and a point from Mark Forkan brought it back to the goal. Again The Neale got the next two points and with ten minutes left led by 5. Another free from the boot of Jack McDonnell and a point from Michael Prendergast left 3 between the teams as we entered injury time. Up on 6 minutes were played but try as hard as we could we could not breach the Neale defence and they finished the scoring with a free in the 64th minute. Final score Swinford 1-15 The Neale 2-16

A very good match for any nuetrals that were in Bekan and there was a good support for both teams. The Neale survive in Intermediate for 2018 and we play Tourmakeady in the last chance saloon.

All Ireland Final Tickets

Due to some hard work by officers of the club we were able to obtain 147 tickets in total over the past week.

93 tickets were allocated to members of our special €150 Club development draw. These are people who have been supporting this draw and the club for the last few years.

33 were given to our Intermediate/Junior teams.

19 to our various coaches and 1 to our sponsor and 1 to the winner of our 50/50 draw.

Unfortunately we would have needed an extra 100+ to satisfy everyone and this was never going to be possible.Not all players, coaches and sponsors obtained tickets. A number of officers gave tickets back to the club.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
