Junior Hurling:
The hurlers continue in their quest to win further honours for the village in their first ever foray into the Munster Junior B Hurling Championship shortly. We have been drawn to play St. Brendan's from Ardfert at the quarter final stage of the competition and the game is provisionally fixed for Sunday 6th December at 2pm. The game is to be hosted by the Killeedy GAA Club in Raheenagh, Ballagh in Co. Limerick.
The lads have been training throughout the last few months ever since that unforgettable night at Pairc Ui Rinn on August 15th. That is in the past now however. We did have a couple of competitive league games in the intervening period against Watergrasshill and other challenge games in an attempt to remain focused for what lies ahead. However the real battle will shortly be upon us and everyone is looking forward with great anticipation to what we're sure will be a major challenge from the team from Ardfert.
This has been a long season for everyone at the club and it shouldn't be forgotten, the amount of work that has gone on in the background by the team management and everyone else at the club. This challenge is not just about the players, but everyone who puts in their time and effort to promote the club in the community. Despite the recent abject weather there is a great buzz in the village as we look ahead to what will be an important milestone in the history of the club. Travel coaches are being organised by Joyce Sigerson so make sure that you contact Joyce to secure your seat.
For the players there is a new objective. The preparations are going well and as per usual nothing is being left to chance. The game will shortly be upon us and we hope that everyone will get behind us in our quest to bring home further silverware not just to Ballinacurra but also to East Cork.
