Club Notes - 2nd September 2014

posted Sep 3, 2014, 7:32 PM by Mark Baldwin
Senior Hurling
We play De La Salle in the quarter final of the senior hurling championship on Friday night at 8pm in Fraher Field. As I mentioned before we have done very well to qualify out of a very severe group and the task doesn't get easier with the arrival of one of the best teams in Munster into Dungarvan. We'll be up against it but no doubt Terence will have a plan and the lads will implement it. It was interesting to see Donegal at the weekend and the substitution of the individual for the collective along with the constant focus on performance. Some of that would go a long way on Friday night.
      It's bizarre to see three separate fixtures for Fraher Field on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. Surely one double header on Saturday night along with the other quarter final would make sense for players, supporters and the casual observer. Maybe this is the county board's observation of the unemployment crisis as expecting a man to work all week and then immediately play an important match is ludicrous. 

Junior Hurling
Our junior hurlers play Ballyduff on Saturday at 5pm in Lismore in the playoff for the Western final in the junior hurling (senior attached) championship.

Junior Football
Tallow 3-8
Affane 2-6
  We qualified for the Western Junior Football semifinal with  a good win over Affane in the quarter final last Friday night. Affane led by two to one early in the game before points by William Curley, Sean Gleeson and a goal and a point from Stephen Pratt (the goal being a contender for TG4's cul an bhliain) put us into a 1-3 to 0-3 lead. William Curley got our second goal coming up to halftime but Affane responded with two of their own to trail by just one at halftime with the score Tallow 2-5 Affane 2-4.
    Another Sean Gleeson point after halftime stretched our lead to two and the very same Kerryman bagged a goal later on in the half to add to a Mikey Curley point to bring our lead to five points and that was the margin at the final whistle.

The draw for All Ireland tickets for paid up members will take place this Thursday night at 8pm in the clubhouse.

Congratulations to Stephen Pratt and Adrianna on the birth of a baby boy
