THE minor played their two semi finals in the past week hoping to continue the good underage performances that the club has enjoyed in the past few weeks.

First up, the lads played Pomeroy in the Championship semi final last Wednesday night in Galbally.

Played in very testing conditions it was Pomeroy who looked like they would progress to the final as with 5 minutes to go they led by 4.

However, this was when the Harps played their best football of the contest scoring 1-3 without reply to win by 2 points.

Final score was Harps 2-9, Pomeroy 0-13. The goal scorers were Cathal Devlin and Dan Lowe.

Then on Sunday the lads headed to Dungannon to play the league semi final versus Eglish in what was a preview of the Championship final pairing.

This again was a very tight affair but the Harps always held the lead and won in the end on a score line of 0-12 to 1-4.

This means the lads have now two finals to look forward to in the coming weeks.

Details have not been released at the time of going to press but information will be given from management at training.

Thanks to the large Harps following who supported the team during both of their semi finals and let’s hope to see an even bigger Harps contingent at the finals.

Senior/ Reserves

The senior and reserve fixtures have changed for some unknown reason as the uncertainty around scheduling games in Tyrone continues.

We now head to face Cookstown on Saturday with a 4.30 throw in.


The next game for the U13’s is this Saturday (6th October) when the lads face Moy at Mullaghmoyle. Throw in is at 11.00.

Gala night

There is now les than two months to go until our centenary gala and preparations are well underway for what will be a great occasion.

There are a limited number of tables remaining so any family or business who would like a table should contact any committee member ASAP.

New club website

The club website has been revamped and is now surely one of if not the best websites in the county if not the province.

This is due to the work of club stalwart Kevin Coyle so make sure to pay the site a visit to see the latest news and goings on from around the club.

Well done Kevin.

Get well soon

Get well soon wishes are extended to club stalwart Anthony ‘Beano’ Quinn following his recent spell in hospital. All at the club wish him a full and speedy recovery.
