U-14s win South Mayo title. Claremorris 2-10 Mayo Gaels 3-10
A storming second half performance saw our U-14s capture the South Mayo title in Claremorris on Thursday evening. The sides played out a dramatic draw last week in Abbey Park but the Gaels did it the hard wary, travelling to Claremorris and beating the locals. The home had the better of the first half leading by three at the break on a score line of Claremorris 2-7 Mayo Gaels 2-3.

This gave them a deserved win on a final score line of Claremorris 2-10 Mayo Gaels 3-10. This victory is all the more special considering that on their way to the title the Gaels beat two amalgamated sides Hollymount/Carramore and Carras (Garrymore and Kilmaine) as well as Claremorris who have such a large pick. It shows what can be achieved if the attitude is right and by hard work.

U-12s play entertaining game with Balla. Mayo Gaels 1-14 Balla 6-5
A cold Mayo Abbey played host to a very entertaining game of football on Saturday evening as Mayo Gaels clashed with Balla in an U12 challenge. A very high standard of football was shown from the start and at half time both teams could not be separated on a score line of Mayo Gaels 1-7 Balla 321. A feature of the first half was the long range shooting from the Mayo Gaels players who could have been in front were it not for the intervention of the crossbar and posts on four separate occasions. Balla's ability to strike for goals at crucial times was a key element and one which would have a huge impact on the final scoreline.
The second half was much the same as the first with both sides playing excellent football. A stand out factor was the defensive effort from both teams with the number of blocks put in underlining the hard work. In the end the ability to find the back of the net by the Balla players was the difference and try as they might the Gaels couldn't find an extra few goals. They will be happy with their performance however and look forward to playing more challenges in the coming weeks before the start of the league. Final score Mayo Gaels 1-14 Balla 6-5.
Mayo Gaels team: Ethan Henry, Brian Morrin, Eoin Duggan, Phelim Prendergast, Sean Keane, Ruari Keane, James Jennings, John Gallagher (0-7), Sean Joyce (0-5), Luke Gallagher (0-1), Aaron Commons (0-1), Patrick Morris (1-0), Nathan McGurrin, Cathal Prendergast, Aoife Duggan.

Bord na nOg Chairman Paul Murtagh addressed the large crowd where he reviewed a successful 2011 outlining that the club’s teams were involved in more than sixty league and championship games as well as several tournaments and blitzes. He particularly thanked all of our underage trainers for the tremendous dedication and effort they put into coaching and organising our teams throughout the year, the parents for their support throughout the year and most importantly a special thanks to our underage players for their enthusiasm and dedication, it was a pleasure working with them during the year.

To present the medals and awards to our players Mayo Gaels were very honoured to have special guests 2011 Young Footballer of the Year Cillian O’Connor and the most famous ladies footballer in the country and four time All Ireland winner Cora Staunton.

The underage parish league medals were given to our U-6's, U-8's, U-10's and U-12's for their great displays of football in the league. The U-13's were presented with their league winners medals which they won in September. The U-14's were presented with their championship medals that they won in July when defeating Belmullet in McHale Park. A special presentation was made to U-13 and U-14 managers Charlie Regan, Martin Henry and John Gallagher for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year. The U-15's and U-16's gave a great account of themselves in their respective competitions and fought hard in all their games throughout the year. The minors had a great run in the league and championship getting to the semis in both competitions.
 
Special presentations were made to Adam Gallagher (minor), Fintan Canavan (U-16), Kevin Jordan (U-16), Calumn Henry (U-14 School of Excellence), Gerry Canavan (U-14 School of Excellence) and Tommy Keane (U-14 School of Excellence) all of whom represented Mayo in 2011.
 
Mayo Gaels would like to say a big thanks to our special guests on the night Cillian O’Connor and Cora Staunton for attending our awards. They were on duty after the presentation for photographs and autographs and interacted well with the all our stars of the future.
