Our U/8s, 10s and 12s have been very active recently playing plenty of matches and enjoying themselves as they should at that age. Our U/8 hurlers were in action on Saturday last in the Blitz playing Cahir, Ballybacon/ Grange and Clerihan. It is brilliant to see these kids giving their all in a game of hurling totally oblivious to any score line and credit to the coaches for preparing the lads so well. For the record we lost to Cahir but had narrow wins over Ballybacon/ Grange and Clerihan.
Our U/10 footballers took part in the annual Bórd na nÓg tournament which took place in Munroe recently. All our games were keenly contested and congratulations to Grangemockler who finished on top. We started with a win against Fethard, we then lost narrowly to Grangemockler, drew with Ballyporeen, just got the better of Ballingarry and we lost our last game against Kilsheelan by a point in a thriller Our B team found themselves in a very hot group but gave of their all recording one win against Moyle Rovers but finding eventual winners St Pat's, Newcastle and Fr Sheehy's a bit too strong for them.The kids had a ball despite the terrible weather and credit to all the coaches, parents and family who helped the players have such a great day. Squad- Craig Ng, Tony O'Reilly, Conor Anderson, Gordon Rossiter,Cathal McGuigan, Daniels Krastins, Dean Pyke, Ralph Farrell, Rhys O'Regan, Jack Houlihan, Aaron Bradley, Ben Kearns, Jamie Doyle, Thomas Hiickey, Sean Fitzpatrick, Nathan Harvey, Adam Lonergan, Conal Ryan, Fabian Kerton, Jack Moore, Simon Smith, Ben Smith, Graham Molloy, Jamie Fitzgerald, Christopher Downes, Jack Dillon, Joseph Roche, Dylan O' Donnell
The U/12 hurlers got their Premier Games campaign off to a winning start with an away win in Clogheen against Fr Sheehy's. We were due to play Carrick Davins on Friday but sensibly the game was called off due to the awful weather.
We played Fr Sheehy's in The County U/16 C semi- final on Thursday last and despite a huge effort we were defeated by five points. This was a huge turnaround from the league game and showed considerable improvement from our lads and there are some potentially good footballers there .
Our U/14 Hurlers will have played their first game in this year's championship, away to the Ballylooby/ Fr Sheehy's combination, by the time we go to press so best of luck lads.
