Newmarket despite a competent opening half display, went down to a heavy defeat by 2-14 to 0-7 against Carbery Rangers in the first round of the County Senior Football Championship at Coachford on Saturday evening.
Best wishes to T.J. Brosnan and the Cork under 21 football team that will play Galway in the All Ireland Final at Limerick on Saturday evening at 7pm.
Newmarket’s junior hurling team recorded their first league victory in their third outing after a home win over Castlemagner by 2-10 to 1-10 at Newmarket on Sunday afternoon.
A stirring all round team effort enabled Robert Emmets to claim the Duhallow Under 21 B Football Championship Final, on defeating a well fancied Boherbue side by 2-8 to 0-10 in dreadful conditions at Newmarket on Sunday afternoon.
Congratulations to T.J. Brosnan on winning a Munster championship medal and to the Cork under 21 football team on their victory over Tipperary, in the Munster Final played at Thurles last Wednesday night. T.J. lined out at right half back and the team now progress to play Cavan in the All Ireland semi final at Tullamore next Saturday.
Congratulations also to Donal Hannon who was a member of the Cork minor hurling panel that defeated Clare on the following night in the Munster Championship played at Páirc Uí Rinn. Donal has the distinction of being the first Newmarket hurler to represent Cork at this level since 1974.
A depleted Newmarket were somewhat unlucky to be defeated by Lyre in the Ducon Cup, played in wet and miserable conditions at Banteer on Sunday afternoon. The home side ended victors on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-6 but a wasteful Newmarket will rue ten first half wides when with the aid of the wind they failed to capitalize on numerous scoring opportunities.
