Good evening and welcome to everyone for the 2013
Ballyhegan Davitts Underage Presentation night. We have a number of awards to
get through and some guest speakers for the parents and players to listen to
and ask questions of, I hope you won’t be shy!
While there will be a number of players singled out
for individual awards tonight, it should be stressed that none of these players
could have achieved their recognition without the help of ALL of their playing
colleagues. I would like ALL of our club to adopt this theme of teamwork in
2014. It is vitally important in any team sport but perhaps even more so in a
small club like ours. Only by having a strong team ethic and commitment will be
2013 has been an interesting year on the field,
with some near misses on the trophy front, a massive success for the U8s, but
progress being made at all levels both on and off the field. A couple of the
major additions we had this year were the purchase of two new sets of
goalposts. This was a significant investment by the club and the new posts
certainly make our club look better in the eyes of visiting teams. As the girls
section continues to thrive there is further investment needed here. I am
delighted to say that with the generous assistance of Glenbank Nurseries as
sponsor we were able to purchase a new and much needed team kit for the under
12-14 age girls. Hope it brings good fortune next year girls.
I am pleased to
include this year for the first time, the U21 Report here. I am especially
delighted that we had two young but well established Davitts senior players in
charge of this team. It shows how much commitment both Jonny and Conor have for
the club. It also demonstrates the depth of talent we have and the opportunities
available for football beyond the Minor ranks. I am sure this team will go from
strength to strength and I would encourage all minors and those who have left
minors in the last three years to come along and participate in this dynamic
brand of football. Well done guys good luck for 2014.
The work of keeping the underage section moving
forward requires a great deal of input from many sources. On behalf of all of
the Committee of Ballyhegan Davitts I would like to say a big thank you to the
Mr J. McKee and
staff at SOPPS along with Plunkett McCormack for running the after school
football sessions. Best of luck with the Blitzes next year folks.
Thanks also to
the Ulster Council coaches who helped our coaching effort throughout the year,
Kathy Crankle, and Mags McAlinden. In addition we had input from Roisin O’Hagan
from Banbridge Council and I believe once again every underage team benefited
from the coaching of Armagh’s own Liam McCorry. This year we had invaluable
assistance from the Athletics master that is Brian O’Hagan and of course a big
thank you to Diarmaid Marsden who continues to provide excellent fitness
classes to our teams. Paul Donachy as our Designated Children’s Officer
processes all of the paperwork required for Access NI clearance for all
underage volunteers in the club, Orla McKeever provides a link from the club to
the school as Liaison Officer, Catherine McCormack provides professional expert
advice and information as our Nominated Children’s Officer. All of this
expertise sits alongside the outstanding coaching our players receive from our
own coaching team. We have seven coaches qualified at the higher level 2
coaching standard and I am please to say they were all involved in underage
coaching this year. All of our other coaches have either Fundamental or Level 1
Coaching badge or are working towards it. A massive thank you to all the
coaches in Ballyhegan for taking personal time to attend coaching courses and
child protection courses, and for the dedication and commitment they all show
to the youth section in Ballyhegan Davitts. Many thanks guys and gals none of
this would be possible without you.

Keeping together is progress.

Enjoy your evening, have fun, be a part of it.
Looking back on our under-21 campaign this year
will certainly help build confidence for the future of our club. Having been
drawn in a difficult group alongside Clan Na Gael, Tir na nOg and Mullaghbawn,
it was always going to be a difficult ask for our boys to progress to the
knockout stages but this did not stop them giving 100% at all times.
Our first game was away to Lurgan Kingpins Clan Na
Gael who boasted a wealth of county minor talent and some well established senior
With a smaller than expected squad on the day due
to work and exam commitments we lined out also boasting an array of minor
championship winners alongside a strong backbone of up and coming senior
The lads showed no fear in coming out and putting
it up to clans from the off, bagging a goal and a few points in the first 5
minutes with Captain Conor Loughran leading by example from Centre half back.
Jack Rafferty and Conor McCann had a monumental
battle in the middle 3rd against an extremely strong Clans midfield.
We managed to stay in touch for the majority of the
first half thanks to some great work in defence coupled with a fine display of
free taking from Eoin Shane Hughes. Unfortunately our tenacious defence was
breached towards the end of the first half with 2 sucker punch goals which left
us slightly adrift at half time.
However credit to every man on the day who stood up
and continued to carry the fight to Clans with a gutsy 2nd half display but in
the end goals proved the difference against a Clan Na Gael team who were one of
the competitions favourites from the off.
Difficult to single out one outstanding performance
from a great team effort but the in particular the work rate of Shane Morgan
definitely caught the eye along with Conor Loughran, Jack Rafferty and Roger
McCormick, all of whom progressed to play a big part in the senior team this
year showing that their maybe isn’t as much of a perceived gulf in standard
between U-21 and senior level.
Our second game of the campaign was a home game
against our bitter rivals, Tir na nOg. Despite the defeat in our opening game,
the boys came into the game in good spirits. There were a few changes
throughout the side, with “seasoned veteran” Conor Williamson returning to the
middle and Roger McCormick taking over the captaincy from Conor Loughran,
sidelined through injury.
The fledgling Davitts started the contest
encouragingly, forcing some excellent turnovers in possession, notably by
Gerard Malone and Shane McKeever, and forcing the opponents to shoot from
distance thanks to pressure exerted by the entire defence, bringing many wides
and allowing Bart McKeever to utilise his excellent kick outs to good effect.
While the work ethic of the side could not be
questioned, we perhaps lacked a cutting edge up front to convert enough of our
chances onto the scoreboard. Trailing by a few points after the break,
midfielder Jack Rafferty was deployed at full-forward in the hope of finding a
goal. Some excellent link-up play between Jack and Thomas Reynolds almost bore
fruit on a couple of occasions, but some last-ditch defending from the Tir na nOg
rear guard meant neither side were able to raise a green flag. At the final
whistle the visitors were the victors by five points; however the result did
not truly reflect the honesty of effort expended by every single player on the
The eagerness of the entire squad and their
collective spirit shone through over the two games. All the boys represented
the club with distinction, and the management were in total agreement that
every player on the squad was more than capable of making the next step up onto
the senior squad the following year.

Minor Boys Report:
Ballyhegan Minor Panel and Management Team
commenced training at the beginning of February. The aim of the management was
for everyone to put in an honest effort and to do our best on the training
field so as to progress in both league and championship. At times training was
well attended and overall the commitment and effort made were satisfactory.
Pre- season challenge matches were an attempt to bring shape to the team based
on those who were committed to training sessions.
The first league game was against Maghery on the
8th April. The team showed great character and spirit and were unfortunate not
to win – having to settle for a draw. There were subsequent victories against
Naomh Eoin, Eire Og and St Malachy’s which resulted in the Minors finishing
joint top of the U18 Division 3 League Northern section. This was a good
There was a break in the season due to exams and
the league then split into All County Division 3 Cup and our first game in this
competition resulted in defeat against O Doirnin Blues. The minor s then had
games against Derrynoose at home and away – both were competitive matches which
resulted in a one point defeat and draw respectively.
Challenge matches were organised in preparation for
the championship game against Derrynoose and whilst the players on the night
put in a great effort and were leading the game as it entered stoppage time
they were unfortunately defeated by a last minute goal from Derrynoose.
The following week the minors had to pick
themselves and play O Doirnin Blues in the league – despite defeat the minors
again put in a great effort and were unfortunate not to win the match against a
team who have not been defeated for the last two years at minor level in Armagh
– both at league and championship.
The last league game was against Maghery. Having
drawn with them previously the lads were very keen to put in a good
performance. On this occasion their sterling effort was rewarded with a last
minute goal which secured victory for the minors in a very exciting game and
enabled everyone to finish the season on a positive note.
We wish to acknowledge the support of the parents
throughout the season and in particular the “hospitality” committee which
set up a rota to make tea and sandwiches for both teams after all our home
games. This was greatly appreciated. We would also like to thank Kevin
McGlinchy for acting as our medical man throughout the year. Kevin came to both
training and matches. We appreciate all the time he gave to the team and wish
him well with his recuperation from recent shoulder surgery. We also wish to
thank those who turned up to matches to support the minors – this was greatly
appreciated by the squad.
Mid-season the minor squad had a team building day
which involved a training season in a swimming pool in Dublin followed by a
trip to a double header of the Leinster semi-finals in Croke Park. The
behaviour of the boys, their positive attitude and gratitude were impeccable on
the day. They were all a credit to the club and a great day was had by all.
We also wish to acknowledge and congratulate Jack
Rafferty on being part of the Armagh 2013 Minor Panel, Thomas Reynolds on being
part of the Simplyfruit Orchard Academy U17 squad and Niall Crummie on being
part of the Simplyfruit Orchard Academy U16 squad. We also wish Niall a speedy
recovery following knee surgery and trust he continues his good work with the
A special thank you also to those who enabled us to
play our minor championship game at home. The very successful Baile Ui hAgáin
Pairc Feile was run on the same weekend of our home minor championship match
against Derrynoose. The committee under the leadership of Seamus McCann had
given us an assurance that we would be able to play our championship game at
home on the Monday evening. In the early hours of that Monday morning a band of
men started the slow and heavy job of dismantling the marquee. To all those
people who were responsible in any way facilitating this – a big thank you – it
was greatly appreciated by players and management.
The 2013 Ballyhegan Minor squad put in a fairly
good effort from February to September. We would like to thank the squad for
their efforts and commitment and their parents for all of the support they have
given us throughout the year. Finally we would wish those players who are
leaving the minors this year to stay involved with the club and those who move
on to the club senior squad all the very best in their senior careers.

Under 16 Boys Report:
Our Goals this year were to develop the team from
last year enable the more experienced players to make a bigger mark and to
blend more of the U14’s into the squad to create a strong cohesive team. On the playing side we aimed for a good run
in the Championship, to gain promotion and play against the Southern Division 3
Teams in the second half of the season.
There was no doubt in our minds that this Team
possessed character, desire and a passion to win for the Ballyhegan Shirt.
Division 3 North:
The Team were in a highly competitive group, facing
the challenge of An Port Mór, Sarsfield, the Grange, Eire Óg, St Pauls,
The character, strength and effort meant the Team
got promoted to qualify to play against the top teams from Division 3 South.
Division 3 South:
Ballyhegan were pitched against some more
formidable opposition, six teams in total including, Sarsfields, Corringshego,
Keady, and Carrickcruppin. A lot of hard physical encounters, some wins and
some defeats, overall the experience has made the Team stronger and more
determined to cope with bigger challenges.
The Team comfortably beat Tullysaran to play
Belleek in the Quarter Final. The Team battled well got some good scores but
fell short against a more physical opponent who took their scores.
Disappointment but lessons learned.
Armagh Development Squad:
Ballyhegan had very strong representation with five
players on the Development Squad, Niall Crummie, Liam McGrane, Kyle Turbit,
Michael McCann and Conor McGlinchey.
Overall it was a good year for the U 16’s, yes we
lost out to silverware but the Team has developed and performed well especially
when they had to dig out results. There is a great depth of talent in the Team
and this augurs well for the future development of teams within our Club.
Both Paul and I would like to sincerely thank all
those who have supported and assisted the U16’s this year, from the
Committee to fellow mentors, U14’s and
Minor and the tremendous backing from parents , all your assistance is fully

U14 Boys Report:
The Ballyhegan Davitts Under 14 season began this
year in early March with a home fixture in the Feile Shield competition. This match was against St Endas, an
amalgamation of Tullysaran and An Port Mor.
Last season we had struggled to beat either of these teams when they had
fielded as individual teams, however on this occasion Ballyhegan were too
strong and won on a 3-10 to 1-08 score line.
Given this was our first match since the end of last season it was a
very impressive victory. Next up was
Carrickcruppin who were much too strong and although we were competitive for
long periods of the game they ran out eventual winners.
This was still early in the season and with a
number of coaching/training sessions still to come we looked forward to a
competitive season. We had an overall
squad of 20 players and with 10 of those in the last year of the U14 squad we
knew we had a strong panel. Overall
throughout the year we played 18 matches (2 Feile, 10 league, 2 championship
and 4 challenge games). Of those we won
8 and of those in which we were defeated there was quite a number where we were
only narrowly lost out.
Overall the players committed themselves well
throughout the season in terms of attendance at training session and
matches. This was obvious in the
improvement in both the players’ individual skill level and also in the team
performance. We also brought in a number
of younger players from the U12 team who were certainly not out of their
depth. It is always satisfying when the
team plays well and we as coaches certainly enjoyed the season past. The players also enjoyed the season and that
was evident in the way they played and the effort they put in all year. Our squad this year was Rory McLernon, Paul
McQuade, Conor Fearon, Sean Donaghy, James Lee, James McCann, Evin Crummie,
Conor Hughes, Ryan McCann, Jack Gallagher, Stefan Mackey, Jack Hughes, Naoise
O'Hagan, Ronan McAtarsney, Jamie McKenna, Oisin Hamill, James McCormack, Kevin
McCann, John Doherty, Michael McCann.

U12 Boys Report:
The U12 squad start training with U10’s in early
March energised by the 2012 season.
This squad was made up of ten U12s and rest were
Training always began with laps and the boys loved it,
not!!!, but they did it as the season progressed their level of fitness
increased and this stood to the boys in a lot of the games.
In our main training session we started with basic
skills of pick ups, fist passing left and right hand, soloing with both feet,
punting passing both feet, high catching and blocking.
We finished of with conditioned games, fist passing
only, no bounce or toe tapping. This helped the boys have a greater awareness
of team mates and moving ball first time.
The U 12’s played in Go Games and Friendly
It was encouraging to see the skills that we had
practised at training were being carried on the field of play.
From the start of the season to the end you could
see a significant improvement on fitness and skill level.
Alongside this you could see the children’s
confidence developing and their enthusiasm wanting to train and play more
shown competing in Ballyhegan Jersey was matched by a high level of discipline
shown on the pitch which is a credit to their families and club.
We would like to thank players for their consistent
effort throughout the season.
I would like to thank all U12 coaches for their
time and help through the year and parents for continued support.

Under 10s Report:
The under 10 training sessions started on the 6th
March which was an earlier start to the year than previous years. The trainings sessions were further cemented
by the under 12s and 10s training together which meant there was up to 23 kids
at the training session on a Wednesday night, this allowed the mixture of
ability and size of the kids to feed off one another.
The coaches met at the start of the year to discuss
the coaching session for the forthcoming year along with coaches from the
Ulster Council, the discussions not only took the form of Gaelic skills but
looked at kid’s core stability and running technique.
For the parents who where there and either watched
from the cub rooms or from running track around the pitch would have seen the
kids doing laps around the pitch, this was normally just a warm up lap before
we done three runs of one side of the pitch which was approximately 130m,
there warm up laps and these runs were focused on
running technique. The ¾ pace runs along
the side of the ended in May but the laps were continued throughout the year
and became part of our weekly warm up.
For the season of 2013 there was approximately 30
training sessions, 45 laps around the pitch and the running along the side of
the pitch came to about 15miles of running! before the main training session
The main training session focused on developing the
basic skills as previous years such as the solos, fist pass, punt pass, high
catch, however because the work rate and work ethic was there from the previous
year the skills could be covered relatively quickly which allowed the skills to
be taken to the next level, from tacking (one on one), passing the ball
diagonally by fisting and by kicking, rolling of the tacking bag and still
holding onto the ball which was great to watch.
Throughout the year there was 11 go games organised
by the Ulster Council which had set times and dates, the coaches also organised
a number of friendly matches and attended a number of blitzes throughout the
year. This allowed the kids to show
their skills that they had developed and practiced during coaching sessions
from passing ball first time, calling the ball, been able to shield the ball
and break tackles, this was all helped by their fitness and ability run and
support one another. For the parents who
attended the go games would have seen some fantastic matches from tackling in
groups, scores with both feet. Even when
things were going against them they had composure and discipline, fantastic to
watch. We would also like to thank the
support from the under 8s who played alongside the under 10s throughout the
The coaching team for Under 10s and 12s consisted
on Chris O’Carroll, Peter McGrane, Christy Furphy and Ciaran O’Hagan. We would also like to take this opportunity
to thank the kids and parents, and remind them to keep fit and healthy over the

Under 8s Report:
In the middle of March the U8 training commenced
with a large group of boys and girls, keen to learn and play football. We had
two basic objectives for the group- firstly that the children would have a
positive experience with Ballyhegan Davitts and secondly to introduce them to
basic skills of Gaelic football.
Saturday mornings we had a match in the North Armagh U8 league- there was great
excitement and the children really enjoyed the match day experience. The group
also participated in two U8 Tournaments-Maghery and Wolf Tones.
One of the highlight during the season was winning
the plaque at the Wolf Tone Blitz on a sunny Saturday in September. After beating Eire Og in the semi-final,
Ballyhegan met Tir Na Og in the final. This was a very competitive game which
the Davitts won and there was great jubilation amongst the whole group. All the
players showed great determination and worked tirelessly until the final
It was very encouraging to see the children
improving throughout the year, better kicking /tackling and ball handling
skills, a great effort was put in by them all.
Many thanks to Liam McCorry for his assistance
throughout the year.
On behalf of the coaches we would like to thank the
children who attended each week, their parents who brought them to
training/matches, and to all the parents who assisted in any way.

Under 6s Report:
The Under 6 group or Davitts foundation continues
to go from strength to strength. As witnessed by anyone who watched this group
train on a Wednesday night. This is now a well established part of the underage
training night on a Wednesday, and as we can see from the number of players who
are now playing in older age groups the benefit to the children and Ballyhegan
is enormous. As always the focus in this group was fun and they certainly had
much of that. It is fascinating to watch these young Davitts develop their
character, build team relationships and improve their basic skills. Whether it
be running, catching, kicking (the ball) or the obstacle race there is
boundless enthusiasm. We hope that the positive experience the kids have in
this group encourages them to be Ballyhegan members for many years and that the
next group of P1s are counting the days to the 2014 season.
Many thanks again must go to the parents who stay
and help with supervision of this lively group.
Finally a big thank you to Mickey Mouse for coming
to the end of year party, it was great to finally meet him!

U16 Girls Report:
Ballyhegan had not fielded an U16 girl’s team for a
number of years so the formation of this team afforded the opportunity for a
number of girls to play who had not played in a while. It is great to see many
young committed girls’ turnout for Ballyhegan; I trust this will continue in
order to strengthen our underage and senior teams in the future.
This season started with a players meeting on 15th
February which was well attended. Training started on the first Sunday in March
were we had a squad of 21 Players. Our first game was on April 8th
against Clan na Gael. A strong start from the Davitts kept this a competitive
game until the last ten minutes when Clans pulled away. The league games
continued but a mixture of exam commitments and other activities meant our
training sessions were not as well attended as the early season sessions. Our
Championship quarter final was scheduled for July so we had a push to get
attendances up in preparation for the Clash against Clan na Gael again and our
chance for revenge. Despite the best performance of the season by the Davitts
Clans prevailed again.
this defeat the last chance of silverware had slipped through our fingers, but
to the great credit of the girls a core of committed footballers continued to
train and put in spirited performances.
was a team made up from many younger girls playing up from U14 and also a
number of girls who had a temporary transfer from Tir na nOg, as well as our
own U16 girls. Despite this diverse group they all worked well and bonded
to Lauren O’Gorman and Sarah Louise Doherty, both of whom trained every
Saturday morning with the County U15 squad from September to November and going
on to represent the County in several matches
would like to thank those parents who helped in any way throughout the year
with lifts to away matches, umpiring and line duties. Finally our thanks go to
the girls for the commitment shown during the season, while it was ultimately
not successful on the pitch there has been great progress made by everyone. I
hope we see everyone back again next year and look forward to a bit more

Under 12 Girls Report:
2013 witnessed the formation of a girls U12 team
and training commenced in the dark evenings of mid March 2013 with a healthy
turnout of girls. We are pleased to report that as the year progressed our
squad grew in numbers and training sessions were constantly well attended
throughout our campaign. All the girls were very eager and committed to the
cause and their dedication has to be commended. Indeed the girls turned out in
all weathers including snow and rain. Our training sessions concentrated on the
basics of catching, kicking and passing the ball. Training concluded with a competitive match
which provided the girls with an opportunity to improve and indeed showcase
their individual skills and certificates were awarded to acknowledge such
Our team started the league campaign with a
comfortable victory away to Carrickcruppin and this was followed by further
victories in a friendly against the ‘aul enemy’ Tir na Og and in a league match
v Clann na Gael. There was great enthusiasm and vigour amongst the panel and to
add to the excitement the team was supplied with a smart new skip, kindly
sponsored by Glenbank Nurseries. (Seamus & Liam McGrane)
As the season progressed the girls found it
difficult to live up to the early season promise and holiday commitments during
the summer months saw our panel depleted and results were hard to come by with
the notable exception away to Granemore when the bare bones of a team produced
a fantastic effort to achieve a draw and we almost snatched a win with the last
The girls finished the league claiming a further
two points and with that came mid table respectability and considering the
number of girls moving up, all the signs are good for a strong U14 team next
year. We wish all those remaining at U12
level every success next season and hope all girls can remain committed to the
club and build on their existing skill base. Overall the experience has been a
rewarding one for all concerned. The girls’ self esteem has been enhanced and
their participation has shown that they are all valued team members.
Many thanks to all parents for your support
throughout the year. Thanks to those who
helped at training sessions or who helped with transport and finally sincere
thanks to all the girls for their endeavours throughout the year.

Ballyhegan Youth Club:
Ballyhegan Youth Club was organised and
successfully run by a group of local volunteers led by Christy Cullen and Shane
Fearon. Volunteers included Louise Lavery, Bronagh McParland, Shane Morgan,
Caolan Finnegan, Clare Marley, Francis Loughran, Seamus McGeough, Eadaoin
Hamill, Sarah McCann, Chloe Hughes, Conal McKeever and Jack Rafferty.
Over 80 children
attended the youth club on a weekly basis from the beginning back in September
right through November.
The children took part in a variety of sports based
activities, table top games and enjoyed the annual Halloween party. The
children also experienced a brand new activity to the youth club which was archery
which seemed to be a major success with those who took part.
Having liaised with St. Oliver Plunkett’s
fundraising committee we have decided next year to work closely with them in
the organising of our programme and intend to work in partnership in running
the Halloween party. This link between both the youth club and the school will
hopefully benefit both parties.
As a whole the youth club has gone extremely well,
which could not have been possible without the help from our youth leaders, the
parents and of course the young people who attended. We all look forward to
seeing you again next year.
This year's summer scheme was organised and run by volunteer youth leaders
from the club. They were led by Catherine McCormack and ably assisted by Micheal
Hamill (jnr), Helen Mc Keever, Chris Cullen, Shane Morgan, Finbar Hamill, Niamh
McCann, Shauna Wilson, Shane Fearon, Ciara McKeever, Conor McGlinchey, James mc
Keever and Niall Crummie.
The Summer Scheme has now got a set place in the
calendar, first week in July, and this year over 100 kids attended and had an
The activities during the week were enhanced by the superb summer weather and
enabled us to engage in a range of outdoor activities at the club on Monday and
Tuesday. This was followed by a visit to
Loughgall Country Park on Wednesday. On Thursday hurling coach Ronan
McWilliams took a number of skill sessions with the youth. The week
finished on Friday with a range of art and craft exhibitions and a visit
from the Maguire’s ice cream van.
Special thanks to Brian Tedford Loughgall County Park manager, Ronan
McWilliams Ulster Council hurling development coach, Micheal Lee and Shaun Marty
Lawless for taking photos for the club website and finally Brendan Oliver and
Patrick McCann for their donations.
Looking forward to seeing you all next year.
