Eskra Vs Newtownstewart

My third game of the day took place at Pomeroy at 5.30pm so as soon as the Ardboe Vs Greencastle game was over at 4.50pm in Dungannon, it was straight into the car and over the hills to be in time for the teams coming out. By this stage, my appetite was getting the better of me but this was quickly cured by one of those dodgy burgers from the burger van at Pomeroy….. it filled a hole but they always smell better than they taste!! :-)

It was a disappointing game from a spectator’s point of view with Eskra in full control from the start. Newtownstewart will be disappointed with the manner they got defeated with some very poor passing and general cohesion but Eskra should be congratulated on their achievement with notable ¬†performances coming from captain Joe Mc Carroll and sharp-shooter Peter Hughes. Final score; Eskra 0-16 Newtownstewart 0-07.
