Annaduff – Bornacoola Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 07:00

Although there was no successes, this move boded well for the future and by 1976 the Junior Team was re-established and had won the League Title. As success continued to allude the Junior Team during the 70's (in fact sometimes the club could not field a team), it was decided by mutual consent to discontinue the Junior Team, and to concentrate on the underage teams of the parish. The team was: Tomas Larkin, Gerry Hackett, Shay Reynolds, Sean Fallon, Henry Faughnan, Liam Mahon, Christy Farrell, Noel Mahon, Frankie Bohan, Ciaran Fallon, Gerry O'Connor, Gerry Beirne, Seamus Mulligan, Noel Hayden and Mick Quinn. This resulted in a parish Under 16 team in 1973 and a Minor team in 1974.

The sides were level 1-3 each at the break. Both sides got fortunate fist half goals the Annaduff goal came after 3 minutes when the Manor keeper Shane Sweeney misjudged the ball leaving Joe Cox with a simple tap in. The match was played at championship pace throughout with very little separating the two sides. Manor goal came on 15 minutes when a high lob from Alan Sweeney ended up in the Annaduff net. Annaduff then had their best spell of the match scoring four points in succession from Kenny Bosquette, Joe Cox, Ray Cox and Brendan Guckian.James Glancy and Joe Cox exchanged points before Manor full back the very impressive Adrian OFlynn got his second point of the match after 55 minutes to put the sides level. James Glancy added another point to leave the visitors three point ahead. Brendan Guckian got Annaduff off to a good start to the second half with a point however two minutes later Fintan McGourty got Glencar/ Manors second goal. Subs used : Conor McLoughlin, Cathal Cox and Michael Rowley. On this performance both teams would need to show significant improvement if they are to figure in the later stages of the Championship.Annaduff :Kevin Ludlow, Matty Cox, John Faughnan, Nigel Cox, David Duignan, Dermot Reynolds, David McHugh, Brendan Guckian ( 0-2), Fergal Carroll, Ronan McCormack, Ray Cox ( 0-1),James Cox, Joe Cox (1-3), Kenny Bosquette ( 0-3,)( 0-1 45,0-1 free), Alan Cox. James Glancy finished the match with the last three points including two superb frees ( what a pity he had an off day against Longford). Annaduff were beaten 2-9 to 1-9 by the county champions Glencar/Manor in the Park on Thursday evening.

However, games became irregular due to the Leitrim Minor's historic success, and the County Commitee decreed in early 1999 that the unfinished leagues would be abandoned, ensuring Bornacoola another year in the top flight. However the most significant victory for the club was the Minor A Championship, which was captured along with the Minor League title, the first time for the club since the 50's. The Junior team were unlucky to be defeated by Cloone in the Division 3 Championship final. 1998 and for the first time since the 60's, Bornacoola were playing Senior football. This outstanding achievement created an all-time Leitrim record in winning 3 championship and league doubles in successive years and remaining unbeaten in the process!

Three minutes after the resumption Ray Cox pointed a free to give his side a two point lead. Then the very skillful Kenny Bosquette slotted the ball to the Mohill net to leave the sides level with nine minutes remaining however that was Annaduffs last score of the match with Mohill getting the last four points. Mohill took control of the game for the next fifteen minutes scoring five points in succession to leave them leading by 1-10 to 1-7 after 50 minutes.

The twenties was the only time Bornacoola did not have a team, and although the 'Black and Tans' and the subsequent Civil War militated against organised games, it would still appear that Bornacoola simply did not have enough players of sufficient calibre to make a viable team. Johnston's Bridge and Cloonturk fielded teams at different times but neither had any success. During the 1910 to 1919 era Bornacoola failed to field a team representing the whole parish. Players from the Rooskey and Cloonmorris areas played with Rooskey or Clonguish and those in the Dromod area tended to gravitate towards Annaduff, Mohill and Eslin.

And there is no team better at managing pressure in the closing minutes than the Willies, nobody who relishes it more and thrives on the pressure. In their favour is their form of Pearce Dolan and Gary Plunkett while the veteran leadership of Barry Prior has been key. They might have been well below full strength but they are still tallying huge scores in their games even without some of their key forwards.

The return of Keith Beirne and Alan McLoughlin in the last match against Drumreilly along with James Mitchell and even Irish sprint international Eanna Madden only increases the range of scoring options for a team that have averaged over 19 points a game while only conceding just over five points a game. Mohill, on the other hand, seem only to be building momentum.

The teams go into the quarter-final with very different moods - Aughawillan are worried about the fitness of key players like Noel Plunkett, Ciaran Gilheany, Fergal McTague and Morgan Quinn, a key quartet who each occupy a different line on the field. They are all likely to play next Sunday but there has to be some element of doubt about their fitness and that's not good for the reigning champions.

McGarry, Gene Cox, Vincie Faughnan, Bernie Mahon, Mel Cox and P.J. However, the Bornacoola Minors brought home our first ever Minor Championship title, (and our last, until 1996 when the Minor B Championship was won by Bornacoola!). In 1948, the Junior Team again finished without honours. Healy. The team of 1948 was: Jimmy Dennigan, Brendan Stenson, Gerry Diffley, Jim Nesbitt, Charlie Devine, Frank Flynn, John Tom McGushin, Jim Faughnan, Ciaran Shanley, Michael J.

To be honest, I'd have Eslin just behind Annaduff and Leitrim Gaels in the favourites stakes and I expect them to come through here. Any help in the scoring stakes would make Eslin far tougher to beat. The question for Eslin is can they do enough to lift some of the burden off Beirne as he simply can't do it all himself.

That was a tight and tough encounter and I expect no different here. They get a hesitant vote - but only just. The sides met two years ago in a brilliant quarter-final clash in Aughavas with Carrigallen recovering after a slow start to win 3-10 to 1-10. Ballinaglera have the numbers in their favour but for some reason, I'm leaning towards Carrigallen.

1989 saw the re-inroduction of an Intermediate Championship and Bornacoola found themselves playing championship at that grade in the '89, '90, and '91 seasons, as it included teams in the bottom half of Division 2 and all teams in Division 3. In it's first year, 1989, Bornacoola again reached a championship semi-final. Bornacoola sportingly agreed to a replay but unfortunately Ballinglera took full advantage to qualify for the final. In the Division 3 League, promotion seemed within our grasp, needing just one point from the last two fixtures, but injuries took their toll in the run-in and both games were lost. However opponents Ballinglera fell foul of the referee and on the infamous day of the thrice taken penalty (three times missed!), the game was abandoned with ten minutes remaining.
