Juvenile Notes - 2nd September

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurling team play their 6th game of the group stages of their championship this Thursday night the 3rd September against Clonea in Clonea.

Under 13
Our Under 13 hurling team were beaten by a strong Lismore team on Wednesday night of last week. However they have still qualified for the western semi final which will take place this Friday night in Ballymacarbry against Fourmilewater. We wish everyone involved well.

Under 16
Our Under 16 hurlers played their last group game of the championship last night (Tuesday). At the time of going to print the result of this match was unavailable but will be included in next week’s notes.

Development Squads
Well done to all our club players who played on Waterford Development Squads at the weekend. In the Under 14 Tony Forristal and Sonny Walsh competitions we were represented by Eoin Ahearne, Oisin Hallinan and Michael Kiely. Our very own Michael Kelleher was also a selector on these teams.
In the Under 15 grade we had 7 representatives namely Ben Flynn, Jamie Walsh, James Walsh, Meldan Dwyer, Shane Kiely, Daithi Brunnock and Sean Kent. Also Johnathan Moore was the manager of this team.
And to top off a very busy weekend for these young players we were represented on the Under 16 hurling team by Tom Looby. All the above players acquitted themselves very well, done their club, county and families proud, and all have a big future in the game hopefully.

Hurling on the Green
On Wednesday night last we finished up with hurling on the green at Sallybrook estate. This turned out to be a great initiative by the club with massive number of boys and girls turning out in each estate each night. A big thank you must go to all the kids first and foremost who took part, their parents for ensuring they were there and to the coaches and mentors and officials from the club who were there to make this event a reality. A big pat on the back must go to one and all. Saturday morning training continues at the club this Saturday morning at 10.30 for children between the ages of 5 and 8 who have started in school. It would be fantastic to see some new faces from Hurling on the Green attending these training sessions also.

It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane.

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.
Strategic Plan
Past generations have had their visions for the future of our club. These are our current aims and with these achieved we hope to hand on the club to future generations in the same healthy state it was passed onto us.
