The u9s played  a couple of great games against Bandon last Saturday, they showed great skills in a really competitive outing. Two eight a side games were played where Macroom lost one and won the other.

The u11s had a super trip away to play in a tournament in Kilmacud Crokes last weekend in Dublin, our young Macrompians won three out of four games and a super day was had by all, the only thing to match the football on show was the singing on the bus on the way home, great credit is due to the mentors for organising to taking the lads to this tournament for the third year in a row and also huge credit to Kilmacud Crokes for organising a super day out that was extremely well organised. The u11s also played two good games last Wednesday night v Bantry in the Castle Grounds


The u12s played out a thrilling draw awy to a good Clonakilty side on Monday night on a scoreline of 5-11 to 4-14. The game was of a high quality and these young lads continue to impress every week.


The u14s played Clondrohid last night in a game and used their full squad of 25 players, Macroom were competitive up to half time but ended up suffering defeat.

The squad was:

James Slattery. Oisín Ó Sullivan, Evan Casey O'Sullivan, Ryan Sabas, Mark Condon, Cormac Bourke, Colin Kelleher, David Burke, Joshua O'Connor, Aidan Lynch, Bobby Murphy, Jamie Murphy,  Ruairi Kiernan,  Danny McKirgan, Sam McCarthy, Martin Fitzgerald, Rory Cregan, Alex Geasley, Ruben Waugh, Rowan Mullane, Conor Coleman, Minuk Kahapola, Jonah Dervin, Liam McSweeney


The u16s played out an excellent game against Bantry last week in the league, they suffered defeat by three points in the end but showed hugh fight and spirit right to the final whistle and also could have got a draw match with the final kick of the game. There was some super scores kicked and these lads are playing great football every week and well done to all involved having stepped up a grade this year.

Junior B

The Junior B's returned to winning ways last night against Ballincollig in the Mid Cork league on a scoreline of 6-19 to 1-4. Some good scores were kicked on the night and the only controversy that came out of the game was whether Olan or Ciaran Murphy was given credit for a goal at the end of the first half, VAR was not available so the lads will have to settle that one between them!

Tom Creedon, Jack Kelleher, John Angland, James O'Connor, Alan O'Farrell, Olan O'Mahony, Mark O'Callaghan, David Cotter (C), Jack Cronin, Conor Hurley, Don Creedon, Darren Creed, Eolan O'Leary, Ciaran Murphy, Olan Murphy.

De La Salle are victorious

De La Salle Macroom were victorious  in the u16 grade last week and were backboned by a strong contingent of Macroom players totalling eleven players on the panel and notably captained by our own Mark Hunt who stuck a last minute penalty to give De La Salle victory by a point.
