Senior Team Report 2014

Senior Team Report 2014

2013 Winng SquadRoslea Shamrocks entered 2014 as junior and senior champions from 2013. The preliminary round of the senior championship pitched us against second division Lisnaskea in Brewster Park. This was always going to be a tricky assignment. After an evenly contested first half we took control after the break with Shane Lynch bagging the only goal of the game as we ran out 1-11 to 0-09 winners.

The quarter final was a repeat of last year’s final against Belcoo but this turned out to be a one sided affair as Seamie Quigley landed nine points in the 0-13 to 0-04 victory to send us comfortably through to the semi-finals.

For 40 minutes of the semi-final Ederney held their own against us but a Sean Quigley goal then gave us breathing space and we finished strongly to book our place in the final on a score line of 2-11 to 0-06.

The final was a repeat of the 2011 final v Teemore and it is fair to say that we didn’t play to the top of our game but we ended up victorious on a score line of 3-04 to 1-05 to claim our 4th Fermanagh Senior Football Championship title in 5 years.

We then entered the Ulster Club competition again for the fourth time in 5 years. We entered in quietly confident mood and it is fair to say that we had prepared in possibly the best fashion ever for an Ulster Club game. When we came up against the Donegal Champions, St Eunans Letterkenny we had an off day and were not able to translate our excellent preparation into a performance on the day. In fairness the game was probably over at half time on the scoreboard but we came out fighting in the second half and won it, but it wasn’t enough and the damage had already been done and we exited the competition on a score line of 0-06 to 1-09.

In the senior league we played 18 games, won 11, drew 2 and lost 5 and finished 2nd with 24 points. This guaranteed us a league semi-final against St Patricks, which we played and won a week after our senior championship final win. The league final pitched us against a Derrygonnelly side hungry for victory but thankfully we came out on the right end of the result to clinch the senior double.
