Sep 212016


Our 2016/2017 Ulster Bank League campaign got under way at home on Saturday, September 17th when we faced Kanturk RFC. The Duhallow men were anxious to make amends for last season’s home and away losses to Midleton so a keenly fought contest was expected and certainly delivered. Kick-off was at 2.30pm under the whistle of Mr. Cillian Hogan. A rousing home support greatly buoyed The Red Devils and got them off to a great start to the season. The visitors 9 points all came from penalties within the Midleton half. Four tries from Sean White, Aidan McCarthy, Luke Morrissey and Paul Daly with a conversion by Paul Daly gave a try bonus win to the home side putting them top of the table in the first week. Next weekend the boys travel to Bruff for a 2.30pm kick off. As always, home support will be much appreciated.
