Our under 12 hurlers had their first challenge match of the year on Monday night last.  We made the short journey to play our neighbours Garryspillane in Knocklong in what turned out to be a very exciting game of hurling.  Our panel consisted of 14 players on the night and all are showing huge improvement in their skills and attitude. Ultimately the bouncers proved to be too strong for us on the night running out two goal winners. The management team of Tom Costello and Mike Gleeson expressed huge admiration for the way the players have honed their skills over the past two years and it was clear to all who were there on the night that all the training and practice at home and at training was paying off. This panel of players will soon have to negotiate a very busy schedule of 18 Thursday nights out between hurling and football over the coming months.
