Grammar Juniors In Connacht League Final

On Thursday next, Sligo Grammar Schools’ Junior team, coached by the club’s Hon. Treasurer, Jimmy Staunton, play Marist College, Athlone in Creggs in the Connacht Schools’ Junior League final. Grammar have given a series of impressive performances in their unbeaten run all season, and the side is backboned by players from the club’s U-14 and U-15 sides. Last Thursday at the Mall they defeated Colaiste Iognaid, Galway [the Jes.] in the semi-final by 18-8, but would not have been flattered by a bigger winning margin. The Marist side is likely to be based on last season’s Buccaneers U-14 side which beat all-comers in the province by big scores, so they should be a formidable team, but the well organised Grammar boys might have a shock in store for them. The Grammar squad are wished well from everyone in the club.
