Club Notes - 17th September 2012

posted Sep 16, 2012, 3:54 PM by Unknown user

After a very quite time on the playing field over the last month, this coming weekend sees a busy few days for our supporters & players, with both our Senior & Junior teams in knockout championship matches next weekend, which could either end our season or propel us closer to county championship honours.

Senior Football

Our seniors take on Clashmore in the senior football quarter-final next Friday night, 21st September, at 8:00 PM under lights in Fraher Field, Dungarvan. We will go into this match as rank outsiders having finished fourth in our group, against a Clashmore team who toped their group, remaining unbeaten throughout until they lost out to Kilrosanty in their final group match, having already being guaranteed top spot prior to this defeat. We have had to manage without a number of first team players as a result of injuries, emigration, etc., throughout the year, & unfortunately we have been dealt a further blow as we will have to do without our county senior player, Gavin Nugent, for next weekends match, as he suffered a broken finger in his final match of his summer in the USA, before returning home last week. All in the club wish him a speedy recovery. Hopefully we will give a performance worthy of the proud tradition that exists within the club, & that those coming into the team & taking to the field will deliver the performance they are capable of & their efforts throughout the year deserve. Please come along & give your vocal support.

Junior Football

Our juniors take on Gaultier in the Eastern Final next Saturday at 5:30 PM in Dunhill, with the match having been switched from Walsh Park. There has been nothing between these teams for a number of years, with one win each in the games during the league section, &  a dramatic second half turn around seeing us win out in last years Eastern final, before we went on to secure county honours. Once again, we would call on all our supports to make the journey to Dunhill, & cheer on the lads, in what is sure to be a tight tussle.

Comeragh Rangers

Congratulations & commiserations to the Comeragh Rangers Intermediate ladies football team who comfortably secured the county intermediate title with a facile win over St. Pat’s in the county final on the 9th September. Unfortunately, they lost out narrowly, 0-5 to 0-7, to Eire Og of Cork, in the Munster club competition last Saturday.

Clonea Intermediate Hurlers

Congratulations to Clonea Intermediate hurlers on reaching the Eastern final with a 7-point win over Mount Sion’s second string team last weekend. They now play Portlaw on Saturday 29th September in the Eastern Final.
