Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes.


New Rules in this Weekend.

The Rule changes passed at the recent GAA Congress in Cavan come into force this weekend. From a hurling point of view the single most important change is with regards the Penalty shot. It is now a one on one with the free taker having to take the shot from outside the 20 metre line. If the free taker fails to properly lift or strike the sliotar and it marginally crosses the 20 m line it can still be struck on the ground without delay. For technical frees inside the 20 m line no more than 5 players may be on the goal line.

In both hurling and football yellow cards will not carry into extra time in a game. Where neutral linesmen are officiating the referee may consult them in regards to the validity of a score where doubt exists.


Senior Hurling.

With our first round of the County Senior Hurling championship against Bishopstown just a little over a month away action continues in the Senior Hurling League. On this Friday evening April the 10th we have a home game against Glen Rovers at 6.45 in Pairc na Bride. On Tuesday week April the 21st we have a home game against Na Piarsaigh, the time of this game has not yet been confirmed.
