Last Tuesday 28 we played Rathgerogue/Cushinstown in the U12 Championship in Ballinaboola, but we didn’t get the points. It was a kind of a gentlemanly game, sportsmanship from both teams. Our team were, Kian was a rock at full back, the two Darraghs, Leon and Killian who hurled like giants of the game, Ryan covered every blade of grass on their pitch, who was exhausted after the game, little bother Barry, in goal, stopped pile drivers from the opposition, Rory and Jody were brilliant. The selectors will have to convene a meeting to decide the Captain of the next match, as they were all candidates. Our next match is on Tuesday 5 July at 7.30pm, Football with Our Ladys Island/St. Fintans, Venue Ballymore. Our best wishes to Nicky and Danial who have been ill last week.
Clonard u10s had 15 players for their home game vs Kilmore. The blues played two games a 10 a side and a 5 a side – with both games going very well. Players were rotated between the games and in their positions with the aim of ensuring each player had to opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills. The Clonard players provided their usual commitment with a block by Darragh and a catch by Luke examples of their efforts. Special mention to Logan making his U10 hurling debut. A sincere thanks to all the U10 players and parents for their efforts and support at the game. The team has really started to develop. Hurling and/or Football training on Tuesday 6.30-7.40. We need all players at training to keep progressing in developing the skills of the games. Our next game is hurling away to Glynn Barntown on Sunday morning the 10th of July. The blues will play a Football game vs Rosslare on Friday 15th of July.
