Naas overcome UL Bohemians in Forenaughts for second bonus point win Naas 28 - UL Bohemians 13 In previous meetings between these sides in the last 10 months the biggest winning margin was just three points, suggesting another close encounter was on the cards when Naas faced UL Bohmians at home last Saturday. However this scenario did not materialise as after a slow start Naas ran out comfortable and emphatic winners. Naas played with the advantage of a strong breeze at their backs in the first half, but it was UL Bohs who took the lead after two minutes through a JJ Hanrahan penalty. For the first 20 minutes the visitors were the better side, and there were some worrying moments for the home supporters. However those fears were eased somewhat by the half-time break as Naas had moved into a ten point lead. On 23 minutes Bohs had a line-out on their own five yard line, but knocked on and conceded a scrum. The Naas set piece was strong all day, it was no different here, and from the scrum Max Whittingham was able to dart over for a try which Johne Murphy converted. The power of the Naas scrum was again evident three minutes before half-time. A great break by Andrew Kearney took play right up to the Bohs line, but referee Stuart Gaffikin awarded the scrum to the visitors. However Naas drove them off the ball, winning a penalty which Murphy successfully slotted over, and another penalty by the same player on the stroke of half-time gave Naas a 13-3 lead. With the strength of the breeze there was still some concern that ten points would not be a big enough lead for the second half, but Naas were always in control and never looked like relinquishing their advantage. They increased their lead five minutes into the second period. A series of pick and drives by the pack led to James Connolly marking his Naas AIL debut by scoring a try. Although Bohs replied with an Ed Kelly try on 54 minutes when diving over from a five yard line-out, two superb efforts by the Naas backs in sixty seconds finished the game as a contest. On 63 minutes Peter Howard made a break and found Peter Osborne in support. He in turn passed to Ross Bailey Kearney and the ball was then quickly shipped out to Johne Murphy who scored in the corner. Straight from the kick-off Naas struck again. Great handling by the backs saw the ball moved out to Fionn Higgins 40 yards from the line. Higgins does not need much space to make a scoring opportunity and there was no stopping him here as he sprinted clear of the Bohs defenders to score his third try of the campaign. Naas now led 28-8 but to their credit Bohs never stopped trying and were rewarded with a consolation try scored by James Ryan, which brought to an end the scoring for the afternoon. All in all it was a very satisfying victory for Naas against a side who ended their promotion hopes last season. To have gained a maximum ten points from their opening two games is a tremendous start to their league campaign, and sees Naas sitting proudly on the top of the table. Next up for Naas is a difficult away assignment to Banbridge next Saturday afternoon. Kick-off is at 2.30pm and all support is welcomed. Naas: Michael Skelton, Fionn Higgins, Donal Droney, Ross Bailey Kearney, Peter Howard, Johne Murphy, Max Whittingham, Stephen Lackey, Graham Reynolds, Jason Harney, Stephen Kinneavy, David Benn, Andrew Kearney, James Connolly, Paulie Tolofua. Replacements: Charlie Kings, Jordan Duggan, Philip Jordan, Peter Osborne, Fionn Carr. UL Bohemians: Jack Murray, Finbar Aherne, Harry Fleming, Adrian Enright, Colin Ryan, JJ Hanrahan, Joe Murray, Pauric Nesbitt, David O'Connor, Mike Lynch, Ed Kelly, Darragh Frawley, Noel Kinane, Ian Condell, Brian Walsh.

Well done to all involved in Naas Tidy Towns. You should be very proud.
The U7 Street League was a great success yesterday with lots attending and brilliant hurling by all. Well done to all the players, mentors and parents who helped out so much.
U15 Division 1 Ladies Football League Naas 8-02 St Laurences 3-05 St Lauerence’s Club played host to the visiting Naas team on a wet, windy evening. These adverse conditions did not detract from the players’ determination to give a very good performance and represent their clubs with pride. The supporters in attendance were treated to an exciting and entertaining match. St Laurence’s settled into the game immediately and registered their first score as they rattled the back of the Naas net. They further added a point and enjoyed a five point lead after fifteen minutes. The Naas players were not daunted and clawed back the lead and after exerting constant pressure, they registered 3-1 on the scoreboard. After some exciting exchanges, the half-time score line was Naas 3-1 St Laurence’s 1-3. The second half opened in lively fashion and Naas scored several goals in quick succession during the first ten minutes. This extended the Naas lead but St Laurence’s continued to battle gallantly and both teams traded some fine scores in the torrential rain. Both teams should be commended for their great efforts and exciting football. At the final whistle, both teams had given of their all and on this occasion, the Naas players were worthy winners. Well Done to all the players !

Naas Ladies AFC
Well done eric donnavan or was it Laura Cusack or chopper..... Great achievement eric all the hard work has paid off.....
Great way to finish off the league yesterday down to the last game. Both kildare and naas needed a win to become champions. For me to say that shows how far this team has progressed. I know most of us remember the time when teams like kildare were comfortable winners against us and it was tough to motivate players to get to training. We almost folded many times but I believed once you girls were turning up no matter how few we were at the time that id always be there. It's a real honour to be the coach of this team. I have been involved in alot of teams and still am and I've coaches alot of players who are now playing elite football in this country but this team is the one group I'm most proud of. I love the way we stick together we encourage each other and give everything out on the pitch. Yesterday's 3rd goal is the reason I coach football it's wouldn't have been out of place in the camp nou Claudia Castellanos García. Monica Gdm you'd have been proud of them. No-one can tell me that you stop improving at a certain age it's all about a players mindset and attitude to believe anything is possible. Some of you had never even kicked a ball before and some have been let down as players and had almost stopped playing altogether. But all of you a winners to me. We have a shield quarter final on Sunday so let's get out there and keep this journey going. I don't want it to end now. Let's keep going all the way. Big shout out to gerry white who took the team yesterday to allow me to do my elite grassroots license he is a life saver. Thanks to ALL the players everyone of you should be proud.... Paul #BELIEVE
Training tonight at pitch 2 at the sports centre 7pm to 8:30pm...
