Tuesday 9th May
Askeaton AFC 2-2 Rathkeale
Shane Ryan scored a headed goal from a Christopher Sheehy free kick midway through the first half. The visitors responded with two goals from Jack Geoghegan in the first 15 minutes of the second half. Both sides continued to create chances but 10 minutes from time Shane Ryan scored his and our second goal to level the match.
Great commitment from the boys tonight in their final game of the season particularly as they had nothing to play for.

Weekly Observer Division 1
Newcastle West Reserves 1-3 Askeaton AFC
Cian Smith (2)
An all important win for the lads today will see them compete in Division One again next season. With the restructure of the league this year, three teams are to be relegated. A couple of losses by the odd goal unfortunately saw the lads slip but with their determination and commitment they battled hard, pushing them clear of relegation worries and finishing out the season in the top four. Well done to all the lads and the management team of Mark Murphy and Chris Kelly.
Team: Killian Fitzgerald, Cormac O’ Keeffe, Caolan Rushe, Colum Sweeney, Stephen Smith, Sam Duggan, Ray Kelly, Shane Long, Matt Moane, Jeff Duggan, Cian Smith, Sean Whelan, Niall Barry.
