The Seniors had a recent outing at a Armagh last Wednesday and put up a creditable performance.

On the day the team finished sixth from the ten clubs and had the distinction of having the overall best scoring pair. This was Francie Kelly and Brian Brady, who playing off three-quarter handicap managed a very impressive 41 points. The other counting scores came from the pairing of John Clarke, Joe Kelly with 38 points and Seamus Patton, Neil Walker with 35 points. The total of 114 keeps Silverwood in the middle of the table and with their own venue to play there is a real optimism of them finishing in their best ever position.
