Sinead Cafferky Club Cpt 2012

St Farnan's Club Notes   04/09/2017

These are certainly proving to be busy weeks on the playing field for all club teams.

The Minors were no match for CT Gaels in the “C” C’ship final which was played last week.

Our U-8’s recently participated in a Blitz which was hosted by the Owenmore Gaels club. A total of fifteen girls between the ages of four and eight wore the club colours on the day which is a very encouraging sign for the future. The team played a total of four games and it proved a most enjoyable occasion.

The U-10’s have played two out of their three scheduled matches with the most recent fixture falling victim to the weather. This team had the distinction of been filmed while training by RTE Junior recently as part of the station’s “Kidspeak”programme. The club are indebted to Aishling and April Finnegan for their roles in bringing about this unique occasion which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The U-12’s great year continues and the side will contest the C’ship final which will be held in Tubbercurry on Saturday next, September 9th. Good Luck to all involved.

With victories over Curry and Ballisodare in their two games to date a similar result in their next game against St. Michaels would virtually cement a place in the final for the U-14’s.

With defeat being their lot in their first two outings, against Drumcliffe / Rosses Point and Tourlestrane respectively, nothing less than a win will suffice for the U-16’s when they host St. Mary’s in the “A” C’ship on Tuesday next. And win, lose or draw the side will have little time for resting on their laurels as they will face Owenmore Gaels in the final game of the group stages two days later.  

Final word this week must go to the Sligo Ladies Intermediate side which exited the All Ireland C’ship at the semi final stage for the second year running. And as also was the case with last year’s defeat at the hands of eventual winners Kildare, Kingspan Breffni Park was also the scene of last Saturdays loss to Tyrone. And whilst the result on this occasion was more conclusive than last year’s narrow defeat after extra time it was no less painful for those involved. We salute all the players and management for the massive effort yet again in their quest to get to Croke Park on All Ireland Finals day, none more so than our own Jacqui, who turned in another solid performance at corner back and to Leah who was also a member of the squad again this year.
