Juvenile Notes - 24th September

Under 14
Well done to our under 14 hurling team who last Friday night qualified for the County Final of the under 14 hurling championship after a hard fought victory over De Le Salle in Abbeyside in the semi final. The final now takes place this Saturday at 1 pm in the Fraher Field against Roanmore. Best of luck to all involved.

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurlers played Ballyduff last week and after underperforming on the night we were beaten. However we have still qualified for the county semi final where we will play Clann na Gael tonight (Wednesday) in Fraher Field at 7:30 pm. A big improvement all round will be required if we are to reach the final.

Under 12
We were in action on Monday evening against Killrossanty in the Under 12 Town and Country Football League, whilst on Wednesday we played Tramore in the autumn hurling league, and we play Dungarvan in Abbeyside on Friday in the football league. We would also like to send out a best of luck message to Niall Buckley who picked up an injury during the game.

Outdoor Hurling
Our underage outdoor hurling continues this Saturday morning the 27th September at the Burgery at 10:30am. All are welcome. This covers all age ranges from under 5 to under 10. 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.

Under 16
Our under 16 hurling team played their last game of the year on Sunday morning last against Mount Sion. In a thrilling game of hurling and a high scoring game we lost out buy a point on a score line of 6-16 to 6-15. This brings an end to championship this year for this group of players and everyone in the club would like to thank them all for their effort throughout the year.

Under 11 and 8
Our under 11 team beat Kilrossanty in the Town and Country League while our Under 8 team were in action at the weekend when they took on the Brickies in a challenge game.

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.
