The U/10 Hurlers travelled to Thurles on Saturday to take part in a specially arranged hurling blitz which was held to celebrate Tipperary’s involvement in the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final. We took part in three thrilling matches which went right down to the wire against Loughmore/ Castliney, Shannon Rovers and Rosegreen. The three youngest players on the squad Sean Fitzpatrick, Jamie Doyle and Jack Houlihan were outstanding showing great courage. Great displays in defence from Cian O’ Sullivan, Shane O’ Connor, Cathal McGuigan, Adam Murphy, Darren Slattery and goalkeeper Derry Phelan. Midfielders T.J Quigley and Shane Curran who took the frees played very well while our forwards Conor Tobin, Sean O’ Leary, Rhys O’ Regan and Jack Downey showed really well on the day. In the sevens games Aaron Bradley, Ralph Farrell and Thomas Hickey were the heroes.
A big thanks to John and Elaine Downey, Dave Charles, Paul Tobin, Dave Byrne, Sean Quirke and all the parents who made the trip.
Training continues on Wednesday at 6-30pm and next Saturday 11/09/2010 we take part in The South Tipp Bórd na nOg U/10 Hurling Blitz which takes place in Duneske Cahir starting at 10-30am.
