Club Notes - 13th February 2012

posted Feb 12, 2012, 3:04 PM by Unknown user



All associated with the club would like to wish our junior player & senior & U21 selector, Steven “Skinner” Flynn, a speedy recovery following major surgery last week in hospital in Liverpool. Steven is due to return home this week to complete his recuperation either at home with his family or in an Irish hospital. Let’s hope it won’t be too long before we see him back on the side-lines & on the pitch.


Minor Football


Our minors kick off the championship season next Friday night, 17th February, at 8:00 PM away to Dungarvan under lights at the Dungarvan Club grounds. Here’s hoping the boys will get off to a good start.


U21 Football


Our U21 team start the defence of their county title with an Eastern quarter-final against Mount Sion next Sunday 19th February at 2:30 PM in Rathgormack. This championship is run on a knockout basis so the lads will have to be near their best to see off the city boys who we struggled to get over last year. Please come along to shout the lads on, particularly as the match is at home.


Junior Football                


As predicted, the proposal for the senior attached junior teams to enter the Eastern intermediate football championship was found to be against GAA rules, so therefore the Eastern championship will consists of only 3 teams, Rathgormack, Gaultier & St. Saviours, with fixtures yet to be issued. The Eastern board are running an intermediate football league which we have been allowed enter, which will consist of 2 groups of 4, which hopefully will give our juniors some kind of competitive matches during the year. Fixtures will be published on the club’s website when they are available.
