Under 16 Cup Round 2 NCW v Ballingarry w/o to Ballingarry
The under 14 sides title chances took a blow after the visit from Adare with the home side going down 2-1. The under 16s too were beaten on the same day when visitors Askeaton A carried home the spoils with the only goal of the game. On Saturday the 30th the club enjoyed much better Christmas cheer when first the 16s travelled to Newcastlewest only to find five players fron the homeside available with Ballingarry receiving a walkover and progress into the last eight of the cup. The 12s also had a most productive visit to Newcastlewest with the Rovers providing the opposition in this vital Division 2 game. Two goals from David Lynch and one from Denis Hayes sees Ballingarry right up there in the race. They have now won their last four on the trot and with just three games remaining, two of which are at home, Ballingarry can feel confident about their chances.
.: Seasons Greetings.
The management committee of Ballingarry AFC wish everybody associated with the club a very happy Christmas and a successful 2007.

.: 12s Back In Contention as 16s also win.
A late strike from David Lynch put the under 12 side right into the title race with just four games remaining. Second placed Newcastlewest Rovers arrived as game favourites but found an improving Ballingarry in determined mood. David Condron in goal was hardly troubled while there were penalty claims at both ends. The decisive strike in a highly exciting game came in the final minute when Ballingarry broke from a Rovers corner and Lynch finished expertly to the corner. Indeed the same player could have had even more glory as he struck the post from an almost an identical position deep in added time.
The under 16 side were also in action with NCW the visitors. Two goals from Darren Alymer saw the home side collect maximum points.

Under 10 Division 4 - Ballingarry B 9 NCW B 2
Under 14 Division 1 - Abbeyfeale United 2 Ballingarry 3 With no junior action this weekend all the attention centered on underage football on Saturday. The under 10 B team hosted NCW B and enjoyed a big win with Nathan Clancy (4), Daven O' Donnell (3), Cathal O' Keeffe and Tiernan Fitzgerald all getting on the scoresheet.
No such luck for the A side as they went down to Abbeyfeale United with Steven McMahon and PJ Noonan getting the Ballingarry goals.
The under 14s were involved in a five goal thriller at Abbeyfeale. Kevin Moynihan put them a goal up before the homeside equalised before the break and then went ahead early in the second half. Dean Clancy restored parity and just when it looked as if the sides would share the points along came Liam O' Sullivan with a winner for the visitors.

Junior Premier Division - Ballingarry 4 Glin Rovers 0
While the juniors got their first win of the season on Sunday, the 16s probably saw their title chances dissappear. Two goals from Denis Kelly and one each from Aidan Barrett and Darragh O' Grady gave Ballingarry their first win in seven starts and moved them away from the relegation zone.
The 16s were unlucky not to come away from Newcastlewest with something with the home side scoring two from the few chances they created throughout the game.
The 12s put themselves back in contention with an easy 5-1 success against bottom club Ferry Rangers. David Lynch (2), Liam O' Sullivan and Denis Hayes were on the mark for the winners.
In the 8s both teams were out with the As losing well in Askeaton while the Bs got their first win of the season against Askeaton B.

Under 14 Division 1 - Ballingarry 2 Askeaton 0
Ballingarry were always the better team during this 14s clash and following their disappointment against NCW in their last outing, they got back to winning ways. Scoreless at the break this changed when first John Walsh and then Kevin Moynihan gave them a comfortable lead, a lead they held to the end and sees them well in the title race.

Juniors Lose Again - Carrig Celtic 1 Ballingarry 0
Ballingarry are still waiting for their first win of the season following this 1 nil defeat in Carrigkerry on Sunday. With the scores level at the break it looked as if the visitors would get something from the trip as they were the better side, with stand-in keeper John O' Grady almost redundant. However all that changed twenty minutes from time when Tommy O' Donoghue was adjudged to have fouled in the box with the resultant penalty the difference at the end.

FAI Junior Cup 1st Rd - Lisselton Rovers (Kerry) 4 Ballingarry 1
Ballingarry lost their fourth successive game on Sunday last and at the same time went out of the FAI Cup at the hands of Kerry side Lisselton Rovers. Ballingarry were never at the races in this game and were down and out by the break trailing 3-0. Denis Kellys' lone strike during the second half proved nothing more than a mere consolation.
.: Schoolboy Results (Saturday Oct. 7th 2006)
Under 12 Division 2 - Ferry Rangers 0 Ballingarry 3
Ballingarrys first win of the season in a game they dominated throughout. Two up at the break thanks to two from Liam O' Sullivan, one from the spot. Another in the second half from David Lynch didn't do justice to a fine Ballingarry performance with the home keeper in fine form.

17s Go Through To National Cup 3rd Round.
Ballingarry 2 Abbeyfeale Utd 1
A tremendous strike from Marcus Moore sent Ballingarry through to the 3rd round of the FAI Under 17 cup at the expense of Abbeyfeale last Saturday. A little bit of history here as it was the first time that Ballingarry have got to this stage. The teams were level at the break at 1-1 after Darren Alymers opener was cancelled out. But Ballingarry came back strong in the second period to deservingly go through to the 3rd round.
