Ardglass GAC Notes

Games Update Ardglass 1-6 St John’s 0-5 The Seniors completed their first back to back wins of the season in a rain soaked game at Ardtole on Friday night, Edward Magee’s squad was stretched to the limits, with up to ten players missing for various reasons. However, the rest of the squad stepped up to the mark to produce a quality performance. The platform of which was the rock solid defence marshalled by Richie Fitzpatrick and Johnny O’Connor. Ardglass started swiftly as Neil Taggert palmed the ball to the net from the first attack of the evening and Ardglass scored further points from play and dead balls from John Polley and Taggert who extended Ardglass’ lead.
