Can anyone tell me what the jerseys are that are pictured on the website? They look great but I can't tell if they are anything to do with Naomh Éanna or not. Is there an explanation somewhere and I'm too stupid to see it on the site? ( Fairly likely!) Could someone throw some light on this, le do thoil? Peadar/Peter.

Minor Football League Final
Naomh Éanna 2-11 v O'Donovan Rossa 0-05
Sunday 30th November 2014 - report by Michael Scott
Naomh Éanna minors played their last game of the season in the minor league final. The match was played at Rossa, with the sun shining and a dry pitch it was ideal conditions for a game.
Naomh Éanna started brightly, they included 11 players who had played in the U21 championship semi final defeat to Naomh Eoin the previous week. Anto Curran with his first touch of the ball scored a nice point which was quickly followed with another from Eoin McNulty. Rossa were struggling with the pace of the game. They appeared unable to keep up with the Naomh Éanna running game . Their problems were compounded when Conan Little broke from defence, he played a one two with Ruairi Scott and then played a delightful pass to James MacAuley who blasted the ball to the net.
It took Rossa 15 minutes to register their first score, by that stage Naomh Éanna were already 5 ahead. Naomh Éanna who were playing some lovely football were not letting up. Two more points from Scott and Thompson quickly followed by another goal by MacAuley had Naomh Éanna out of sight. Rossa tried to get back into the game with high balls into their forward line but the Naomh Éanna as defence held strong. The full back line of Eastwood, McNamee and McNulty were not giving the Rossa forwards an inch. Odhran Eastwood scored the last point before half time to put Naomh Éanna 2-05 to 0-03 ahead.

The second half started just like the first with a quick point from Anto Curran. Rossa were beginning to get frustrated. Further points from Scott and Eastwood stretched the Endas lead still further. Rossa then lost a man for an off the ball offence. With Naomh Éanna ahead on a score-line of 2-08 to 0-03, there was no way back for Rossa.
Rory Morgan and Ciaran Thompson completed the Naomh Éanna Scoring.
Final score Naomh Éanna 2-11 Rossa 0-05.

Two trophies for the season – the Laverty cup (SW championship) and the all County league is some reward for the season, however there must still be some disappointment for the all county championship defeat back in early August.

The team:
K Jennings, D McNulty, F Eastwood, M McNamee, C Eastwood, P Healy, K Hillen, R Scott (0.03), J Maskey,
C Little, J MacAuley (2.0), A Curran (0.02), C Thompson (0.02), O Eastwood (0.02), E McNulty (0.01), subs R Morgan (0.01).

U21 football championship Semi final
Naomh Eoin 1-13 v Naomh Eanna 0-03
Saturday 22nd November 2014 - report by Michael Scott
Naomh Éanna made one change to their starting 15, bringing in minor full back Kevin Hillen for the injured Tiernan Curran. Positional changes also included moving Cormac Eastwood from half back to half forward and moving Peter Healy from full back to wing half back.

The game started on time and both teams lined out with both defences packed with extra bodies marking space. In a game more akin to chess, scoring opportunities were few and far between. Over the first 20 minutes of play both teams were level on 2 points each. The teams were struggling to penetrate each others defence. Just before half time Naomh Eoin made the break through and went into the break leading by 2 on a scoreline of 4 to 2.

After the break Naomh Éanna made a tactical decision and pushed an extra man forward to play with a 3 man full-forward line. This change had an immediate impact with an early score coming from Aodhran Eastwood. The same player then had an opportunity to level the game with a 20metre free but unfortunately it went to the wrong side of the post.

This seemed to wake Naomh Eoin up. With 10 minutes gone and not having scored in the 2nd half, Naomh Eoin ripped into Naomh Éanna. They scored 4 points in as many minutes and things were looking bleak for the Hightown boys. The manger decided to freshen things up and Donal Walsh entered the fray with 15 minutes to go. A minute later Donal walked off the pitch with a red card after sharing pleasantries with the match official.

Naomh Éanna were already struggling to contain the rampant Naomh Eoin forward line, but with a man down the situation went from bad to worse. Another 5 unanswered points put Naomh Eoin 10 ahead and the game was effectively over. A goal in the last 5 minutes completed the scoring and St Johns ran out convincing winners on a score line of 1.13 to 0.03.

No doubt Naomh Éanna will learn from this. Of the starting 15 only one player is unavailable next year. Eleven minors started the game and hopefully after playing in this game they can fully appreciate what they need to do if they wish to get to the next level.

Naomh Éanna team was – C Losty, F Eastwood, K Hillen, D McNulty, N Heatley, R kennedy, P Healy, C Scott (0.1f), J Maskey, C Eastwood, J McAuley, K Healy, A Eastwood (0.2f), R Gillan, C Little. Subs D Walsh, M Morgan, T Curran.

U21 football championship Quarter final
Naomh Séamas 2-04 v Naomh Eanna 2-11

Saturday 15th November 2014 - report by Michael Scott
Naomh Séamus – Aldergrove entertained Naomh Éanna on Saturday afternoon in the quarter final of the under 21 football championship. The pundits had tipped Naomh Séamus – Aldergrove as favourites given their senior division one status and given the fact that most of their starting 15 had experienced division 1 and senior championship this season. Naomh Éanna on the other hand included 10 minors in their starting 15.

Naomh Séamus had obviously read the script and started strongly. They scored 2 early points and Naomh Éanna were struggling to keep up with McGarry, Browning, Brazier and Hanna in the Naomh Séamus forward line. It took 12 minutes before Naomh Éanna registered their first score with a close in free from Aodhran Eastwood. Naomh Séamus added another point shortly after to lead 3 point to 1. At this stage Naomh Séamus should really have been much further ahead. Their cause wasn’t helped with an injury to their lively corner forward Browning who was causing the Naomh Éanna defence all sorts of problems. Naomh Éanna took their opportunity at this point and at half time both teams were all square at 4 points a piece.

Naomh Séamus came out after the half time break with a new determination. Within minutes of the restart they scored a super goal by Seamus McGarry . Not to be out done Naomh Éanna raced up the field and scored an equally as good a goal by Kristan Healy. Things then settled down and both teams teased each other with some nice support play but with no end product. Entering the last quarter, Naomh Éanna appeared to make a break through, points from Rian Gillan and Kristan Healy put the Hightown boys 2 in front. Then disaster struck when Naomh Séamus were awarded a penalty which McGarry planted into the top corner of the net. To their credit Naomh Éanna did not panic, they continued to play football and were awarded a free with 5 minutes to go which Aodhran Eastwood dispatched over the bar to level the game. Another 5 minutes of play before the final whistle but both teams were unable to register a winning score.

Extra time started and Naomh Séamus were struggling with the pace of the game. Naomh Éanna were moving the ball at pace from side to side looking for the killer pass. 3 unanswered points from Scott and Eastwood put Naomh Éanna 3 ahead at the end of the first period of extra time. In the second period of extra time Donal Walsh killed the game off with a superb goal, chipping the keeper from 25 metres. This killed the game off as a contest and in the last minute Ruairi Scott put the cherry on the cake with a free to complete the scoring. Final score 2.11 to 2.04.
This Saturday Naomh Éanna play Naomh Eoin (St Johns) in the semi final, throw in 2pm in Lamh Dhearg Hannastown.

The team was – C Losty, D McNulty, P Healy, F Eastwood, N Heatley (0.1), R Kennedy, C Eastwood, R Scott (0.2, 1f), J Maskey, C Little, J McAuley, K Healy (1.02), T Curran, R Gillan (0.1), A Eastwood (4f) subs D Walsh (1.1), D MacElhatton, C Thompson, M Morgan.
