Junior B Hurling semi-final

The Hurlers travel to Carrigtwohill this Wednesday evening 6th October at 7.30pm to take on Midleton in the semi-final of the Junior B Championship. It’s over six weeks since that great victory over St Catherines in the quarter-final so the lads are sure to be raring to go. The management team of Martin Walsh, Colin Richards and John Power have put in a huge amount of effort to get the team primed for this one. No doubt this is a mammoth task for The Village but they have the hurling and team spirit to come out on the right side of this one. The Club would be more than delighted to see a large contingent come along and support the team for this game. With the effort everyone involved with the team has put in this year it would be fitting if they received the support they deserve.

We recently held a raffle to raise much needed funds for the club. Thanks to everyone who supported the draw. Special mention goes to those who sold tickets for this fund raiser.

Juvenile Club

Our U-12s played Cloyne recently in Pairc Na Gael. Despite the fact that we fielded several 8/9 year olds, it’s fair to say that the team acquitted themselves very well indeed. Certainly the older players showed that they have the ability to compete and should hold their heads up high and some great performances.We hope to get in a few more games before the end of the season. Parents should keep an eye out for texts for upcoming games.

The Club shop is open every Saturday morning between 10.30am and 12 noon between now and Christmas. There are plenty of gift ideas from the very young to the not so young including poloshirts, hoodies, hurleys, hats, t-shirts and many many more items.
