Bright GAC Notes

AN injury-ravaged Bright team went to Dromara and got a well-earned point drawing with the home team 1-07 to 1-07. BJ McMenamin had a great game scoring an impressive 5 points. Conor Doyle scored a grand 1-01 with Matthew Burns scoring the final point for Bright. Philly McGarry, Dee Sharvin and Tommy Fitzsimons defended strongly while Seamas Tumelty, Nicky O’Connor and Conor McAllister worked hard around the middle of the pairc. Training will be held on Thursday night at 7pm at Bright and the next game away to Bredagh is on Friday night. Well done also to the Reserves who had a good win over Teconnaught in Round Two of this year’s East Down League Shield.
