LATE FLOURISH DOES IT FOR REDS
Rostrevor's senior footballers finished strongly to overcome Ballyholland in Sunday afternoon's league encounter at Pettit Park. Brendan O'Hare's penalty save midway through the half and 1-04 unanswered in the closing ten minutes paved the way for Gerard Colgan's men, as they move towards safety. Click here for report.
ROSTREVOR 1-14 - 0-11 BALLYHOLLAND
What about our newest local celebrity - can be seen on billboards across Ireland! You never know what these lads get up to in their retirement!
Ultimate Rostrevor XV
So with exactly 100 players being nominated for the Rostrevor Ultimate XV we have totted them up to produce the team below. The most picked player was Jarlath Austin, with Jarlath Farrell following closely behind. Austy was also the overwhelming choice for Captain! Notable mentions to Chris McCartan, Mark Rowland, Dermot Mackin and Caolan Mooney who just missed out on the team. Thanks to all who contributed - obviously some of the players from older generations didn't get as many votes as needed to make the top 15 but the nominations did range from 1940s right up to the present day!
All at St Bronagh's GAC Rostrevor send best wishes and a speedy recovery to the Burren minor players who suffered nasty injuries in last night's game. We have heard this morning that one of the boys is out of hospital and recovering at home after scans found nothing broken, just very bad bruising. The other boy suffered a broken bone in his hand. Get well soon!

U14s beat Saval!
Last week, former All - Ireland winner with Derry and 4 time all-star footballer Tony Scullion paid a visit to Pettit park as part of his work with the Ulster Council to assess how club coach Aidan Murray is getting on. Aidan was picked along with 8 other coaches from Ulster to participate in the Ulster GAA Coach Academy which is supported by Sports NI. It is a scheme were they pick the best coaches from the Province and train them over a number of weekends to enhance their skills. After the session Tony gave the minor players a very passionate and worthwhile pep talk and told them how impressed he was with them and also with what Aidan was trying to achieve.
In the picture from L-R is Noel McAvoy, Aidan Murray, Tony Scullion and some of the minor players, Conall Gordon, Aidan Magee and Aaron Fearon.
