Coming towards the end of the season a few Carniny Youth FC teams were playing the final games of their respective campaigns last week.

The U13s continued their fine form, unbeaten in their last four games, taking a mid week win against Newhill and playing out a scoreless draw with Aquinas on Saturday.

The U14s claimed a valuable point in another scoreless draw with Ridgeway Rovers in the National League as they attempt to secure their place in the top flight division in their final two games with Carnmoney FDC.

Up in the North West the U10s exited the Cup at the quarter final stages against a strong Ballymoney side.

Unfortunately there were to be no winning ends to their season for the 15s and 17s who both lost their closing league games to Bertie Peacock and Loughgall Youth respectively. Both teams will be taking a short break before beginning their preparations for the forthcoming Foyle cup.
