In the absence of our PRO Shane Spellman, I’m in charge of the Club Notes this week.
Boyle U12s had an exciting one point win over Strokestown in Strokestown on Friday evening in the U12 Spring League, Division 2. They will be in action again on Saturday next in the Abbey Park in the next round of this competition when they will take on Oran at 5pm. The U12 Division 5 team will play St Barrys also on Saturday evening in Boyle at 6pm.
The U14 teams lost to St Brigids in both the Division 1 and Division 4 games in Kiltoom on Thursday evening last.
The Lannon Motors/ Hankook Tyres U16s commenced their Division 4 Championship campaign wit a good win over St Ronans in Ballyfarnon on Friday evening last.
The Cooney Motors/ Cooney’s Centra Juniors also commenced their Junior B Championship campaign with a convincing win over St Faithleachs in the Abbey Park on Friday evening last. This game made history in the fact that two female umpires officiated. Thanks to Kathleen Hanmore and Mary Smith who answered the call and thus made their own bit of history.
The U10 Community Games team is scheduled to play Ardcarne (St Michaels) in the Abbey Park in the coming week. Date and time to be determined.
