The senior footballers returned to championship action last Sunday evening in Ballygarvan against St. Finbarrs.  In a game that was played in very blustery conditions, there was little to separate the sides in the opening thirty minutes and at half time the sides were level at 0-6  each.  The ‘bars took control early in the second half and with 13minutes remaining held a 4 pt lead.  However Newcestown thundered into the game and scored three excellent points without reply.  The ‘bars held on and scored a late point to finish two point winners on a score of 0-13 to 0-11.  Newcestown now meet St. Nicks in the second round.
