Quiet Weekend for Most Valley Athletes.
Last weekend was a quiet weekend of competition with Valley's Margaret Synott been the only athlete in action. Full advantage was taken by all for a busy training weekend in preparation for upcoming competitions.
Northern Ireland Senior Ladies Cross-country Championships
Margaret Synott made her come back from injury at the Northern Ireland C-C Senior championships and finished 5th overall. The club are delighted to see Margaret back in action and hopes the season continues to go well for her.

The Ulster schools championship was held last Thursday. Finn Valley wish to congratulate Stephan Connolly, Alan Kavanagh and Nikki Alcorn all who have qualified to compete in the All Ireland Schools championships to be held in Dublin on the 8th March. Best of luck to all. Scottish Juvenile Indoors Championships
This weekend is a very busy weekend for all athletes as our juveniles make the journey to Glasgow to compete in the Scottish Indoor championships and our senior athletes head to Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow to compete in the AAI Inter Club cross-country championships.
Our juveniles leave on Friday at noon from Finn Valley and team coaches are Bernie Alcorn, Anne Gallagher, Christine Feely, Patsy Doherty, Sean Carlin and Brid McMenamin. The club wish all the best of luck.
