CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Junior A Football:
We were meant to play South Liberties in Rd 2 last Sunday but they were unable to field a team at the last minute so we played an internal training match instead. The final group game v Castlemahon this weekend will determine who progresses to the county quarter final.
We play Kilmallock in the county quarter final on Sunday September 6th at 6pm in Bruff.
Our Minor hurlers finished their campaign against a stronger Dromin/Athlacca/Banogue last Friday in Croom. Despite missing a few players, every player gave a big effort. This year was about entering the team and competing as best we could. We will be looking forward to next year with some new younger players coming through and we hope to start pre-season training early and prepare well to improve and develop our young players. Thanks to this year’s management of Richie O’Kelly, Aidan Morrissey, and Ryan O’Shea. Our Minor footballers begin their campaign this Friday Aug 28th away v Adare at 7pm.
Last week’s hurling match v Pallasgreen was postponed just before throw in due to bad weather. Our U16 footballers play away v Knockaderry on Mon Aug 24th at 7pm, and our U16 hurlers are out next Monday Aug 31st v Ballybricken/Bohermore/Fedamore at 7pm in Caherelly. Training on Thursday Aug 27th 6.30pm.
Our U14s played Na Piarsaigh at home last Sunday morning. This very young team put up a very brave fight and it was 0.05 each at half time.
