CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
With the exit of Limerick in the championship, the local club championships will kick back into full swing from this week. Next week we play Na Piarsigh in round 3 and we hope to build on our 2 wins from 2 back in April. See club Facebook page or Limerick Leader/Limerick GAA website for fixtures.
Junior A Football:
Last Friday we had a good win in round 1 of the championship against Oola in Martinstown. We started off both halves well but seemed to lose our way a bit for the rest of the halves. We had some good passages of play and led 0.7 to 1.02 at half time. We started the second half well again but didn’t take all our chances and should have been further ahead. Our bench got a run out and we kepot Oola at arms length running out on a final scoreline of 1.13 to 1.07. This weekend we are due to play Kilteely/Dromkeen in round 2 but fixture TBC.
Last Thursday our minors came up against a very strong Kilacolla Gaels in round 1 of the South Hurling championship. Our opponents have been joined together from U14 to U21 for the last number of years and are showing the benefits of their amalgamation so our lads were always going to be up against it. In the first half we did ok, going in 7 points behind. Unfortunately, they got on top and found loose players who took their scores well. Our lads kept going but the game finished 1.15 to 6.29.
Our U16 hurlers lost out to Croagh/Kilinny/Rathkeale on Monday last on a scoreline of 1.09 to 1.11. This was a great game with both sides giving everything in terrible wet conditions. Hard luck to our lads who gave a great effort. This Wednesday 31st we are away to Shannon Gaels in football in Glin at 7.15pm. Next Monday August 5th we are due to play Adare at home in football at 7pm.
This Wednesday 31st we are playing St.Kierans at home in hurling at 7pm.
Last Friday we took part in a football blitz in Hospital school. We played 3 matches against Kilteely/Dromkeen, Galbally, and Hospital, winning all 3. A big thank you to Theresa Reidy and all the coaches and parents who helped out on the night.
Football training this Thursday evening August 1st at 6.15pm. Everyone welcome including new players.
