The special U-17 competition commenced last Weds night with 24 teams participating throughout the county. The emphasis is on giving games to this age group while also focusing on the skills of the game. Games are 9 a side, 12 minutes per half, played on a round robin basis with 2 teams from each group going forward to Round 2.
We had our first game vs Gneeveguilla who were much stronger physically and put us under pressure from the first whistle – though we tried manfully, we were not strong enough and Gneeeguilla ran out comfortable winners. Our next game was against Finuge where we played much better as a team winning easily in the end. The results placed us second in our group and into round 2.
The focus now switches to JP O’Sullivan Park this Monday night for the second round of fixtures in this competition; we are in a group with the hosts ( Laune Rangers) and Firies – the action gets underway @ 18.30
There was no winner of last week’s lotto jackpot where the winning numbers drawn were: 13, 20, 25 & 31. There were no match 3 winners either, so next week’s jackpot will now be for a grand prize of €4,200.Tickets ( €2 / 3 for €5) can be purchased from the kiosk in Charlies Bar, from Jimmys on Strand Road, Counihans on Princes St or Foley’s Spar on the Castlemaine Road.
The five entrants for the special December draw ( 4 X €250) are as follows: Betty O’Sullivan, Trevor Thomas, Mary Foley, Seán Kerins & Pat Flavin.
We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support for this important fund raiser for the club.
