Losing start for U21s

The U21s’ belated start to this year’s North-West Cup ended in defeat this evening at the Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence. Under the lights at Scarden it was the home team that came out on top, winning by 2-5 to 0-10. Most of the damage seems to have been done in the first half when the young Magpies bagged two […]
