Aghada U10 Hurling Leagues:

A visit to Rostellan Pitch on Friday 13thof November was a great experience, to watch (4) U10 teams from Aghada compete in The 2015 Community Hurling Leagues. These matches will be played over three nights with the 20th being the grand final. This is the first opportunity for most of these players to play under lights witnessed by so many supporters on the line. The first rule (of many) for the leagues was that the enjoyment for the young players is paramount, it’s not all about winning (but it does help)!!!!!!! Well done to all mentors for affording these players the chance to display the brilliant skills they have developed during the 2015 season.
