Juvenile Notes - 3rd June

Under 13
Our under 13’s played in the western semi final Tuesday of last week against Kilrossanty in Abbeyside. We played some good football on the night to record a 5-8 to 0-11 victory and qualification for the western final. The final was played in Fraher Field last Saturday against the Nire. This was the third occasion this year that both of these teams met in this grade, with the Nire coming out on top on both previous occasions. This didn’t faze our boys and they started well and we were leading at half time by a goal. If the second half with the aid of a slight breeze the team applied more pressure on their opponents to record a 3-6 to 2-3 win. This was a great display by all the panel of players. Next up here is a county final on Saturday 13th June against Gaultier.
Panel: David Byrne, Niall Buckley, Sean Sullivan, Jamie Moylan , Daniel Treen, James Cowler, Darie Slevin, Alec Norris, Ben O Donovan, Colin Foley, Eoin Flynn, Tony Dwyer, Stephen Lake, Tadbh Collins, Callum Beresford, Ronan Foley, D J Kiely, Rian Walsh, Joe Flynn, John Joe Quealy, William Beresford, Oisin Riordan, Conor Kent, Sean Óg Flynn, Louis Cambell, Jack Riordan.
We would like to wish DJ Kiely a speedy recovery from his recent injury and hope to see him back on the playing fields soon.
The Under 14 County Final takes place on Saturday 6th June at 11:45 against Gaultier in Fraher Field. Please come out and support this team and we wish everyone involved well.

Under 10
Last Wednesday night (May 27th) we went to Ballinameela to play in the U 10 Football tournament. First up for us was St. Oliver's and the boys won fairly easily, but the tables were reversed when we played Clashmore, where we came out the wrong side of a one sided game. That meant we qualified for the B final on the night. Our opponents were the Brickeys. A tight game saw us level at half time but in the 2nd half we got the goals that swung the game in our favour. We sit on 4 pts in the group with two more nights to go. We travel to Kilrossanty on June 10th with the other half of our squad. Panel on the night was Jack O Donovan, Sean Walsh, Billy O Connell, Sean Queally, Jamie Mulcahy, Kieran & Darragh Cosgrave, Daniel Morrissey, Fionn Murchu, Aodhan Barrett.

Bag Pack
We held our annual bag pack over the weekend at Garveys. This was a very successful event and everyone involved in the club would like to thank everyone who gave up of their time to help on the day in any small way. Also a big thank you to Garveys SuperValu for allowing us to have this event on their premises year in year out.

Best of Luck
Best wishes are sent to all in the club who are sitting their Junior and Leaving Cert exams this week.

Development Fund
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club has been growing at a dramatic pace over the past 10 years with the population of our parish increasing rapidly. 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.
