FAI Junior Cup: Manorhamilton Rangers marched on to the next round of the FAI Junior Cup after a 1-0 away victory last Sunday over Roscommon side Sky Valley Rovers thanks to a rare but clinically taken goal from Paul Lonican pouncing on a goalkeeping error. It was a good all round display with Manor the better team on the day and deserving winners. Special thanks to Roger Connolly and Sean Gallagher who looked after the management from the sidelines and to those that travelled and brought the team to the venue. Well done all. Team: Paul Scanlon, Connor Hurd, Paul Clancy, Paul Lonican, Helder Oliveira, Niall McManus, Mark Kavanagh, Alan Gilligan Andrei Sabin, Daniel Skimmin, Luke Tansey. Subs Daithi Cummins, Adam Connolly, Marcio Rafael, Richard Hewitt and Paddy Clancy.
U14: Manor U14s had a convincing win over Yeats Utd in the Connacht Cup in Carney on Sunday. Scorers for Manor were Cathal Og O'Connell, Barry McNulty, Eanna Clancy, Diarmuid Giblin, Alan Kavanagh, Patrick Montgomery and Tom Hughes. Great overall performance from the lads.
Sligo/Leitrim: Manor Rangers are delighted to announce that club PRO Dave Cummins has been appointed onto the committee of the Sligo/Leitrim Schoolboys & Schoolgirls league as Social media officer. Dave will be responsible for all social media output relating to the league. He will also be the liaison with Sligo Rovers in a joint social media initiative and will also be involved in the leagues website development. Dave will work closely with the leagues PRO Tina Beirne.
Sympathy: It is with great sadness the club heard of the passing of Mark Rooney after a prolonged period of illness. Mark was a true gentleman and a giant of a man on the football field. Mark played in our Manor Astro seven a side league and always added to the games. Our prayers and thoughts are with Marks family at this sad time. We are dedicating Sunday's Senior win in the FAI Junior cup to Marks memory. RIP.
