Juvenile Notes - 28th May

Under 14
Our Under 14’s played the Feile Hurling County Final on Wednesday evening in Fraher Field against Mt. Sion. It took a while for the boys to settle into their rhythm and had a 4 point lead at half time. In the second half we began to play better hurling and won the game 4-9 to 1-1. This was a great achievement for this panel of players having won the Feile Football a few weeks back. This is the second consecutive year the club has achieved this feat.
However the players had no time to rest and enjoy their great win as they had to play the Under 14 Football County Final on Saturday just gone in Walsh Park against De La Salle. This was a very tough game and with signs of fatigue visible in some of our players it was always going to be a tough challenge. With 10 minutess to go we trailed by 4 points. Even though our lads were out on their feet they really dug deep and rallied to win by 3 pts, 3-5 to 3-2.
For these players there is no rest either this week as the fixture list has two under 14 hurling games down for decision.
Panel: Jake O’Riordan, Eoin Ahearne, Daniel Raher , Sean Kent, Fergal Roche, Johnny Treen, Meldan O’Dwyer, Eoin Flynn, Shane Kiely, Dathi Brunnock, Jamie Walsh, Dean Beresford, Ben Flynn, Senan Travers, Cian O’Riordan, Michael Kiely, Sean Roche, Barry Morrissey, Rory Ahearne, Patrick Fitzgerald, David Hayes, Michael Troy, Oisin Hallahan, Danny Reynolds, James Riordan.

Anyone who has not paid their membership yet is asked to pay it on the morning for insurance reasons. Membership forms will also be given out on the morning. Helmets are compulsory and if required can be purchased at a reduced price of €50. There will be a €2 cost also to cover expenses.

Bag Pack
Our annual bag pack is now fast approaching and we seek volunteers to fill timeslots on the given days. It takes part this year at Garveys Supervalu Dungarvan from the 29 - 31st May. This is one of main sources of income for the juvenile committee so we urge anyone available to help out on those dates to contact juvenile secretary Niamh Enright on (087) 9705005. Any help would be appreciated no matter how big or small.

We must ensure that we have the best facilities for all our players. We want to ensure that the next generation have the facilities that they need and deserve. We are asking supporters and friends to support this project over the next five years.
