A very quiet time of year on the playing front sees team managers , Mike Woods and Tim Mulcahy continue their preparations for the impending League and Championship campaigns ahead. Meanwhile , the progressive Juvenile Club held their AGM this week , which exciting development and coaching plans for the year ahead discussed and , in many cases , implemented .

JUNIOR FOOTBALL CHALLENGE
Lios gCul 2.07 Youghal 0.12
A hard fought win for Timmy's charges on the visit to Youghal , where our second half comeback proved successful against our hosts from the seaside . Early pressure from Youghal proved rich pickings , as they raced into a 0.07 to 0.01 lead , whilst aided by the elements . On the resumption , however , the fortunes were reversed , and , assisted by a cold wind blowing towards the clubhouse end , we dominated possession , if not on the scoreboard . If our shooting boots were affixed more accurately , and if any of the twelve second half wides were converted , we may have been more comfortably in front . However , it took a heroic midfield performance from Eoin Riordan , and the goal scoring exploits of Kieran Shea and John Cronin to wrap up the spoils. Afterwards , it was encouraging to see so many players drop in to the indoor hurling arena where the Under 8's were playing in their Blitz. Further proof , if needed , of the real "One Team" ethos alive and flourishing in the Club.
