FR CASEYS GAA CLUB NOTES
County Junior A Football Final
Fr. Caseys Vs Newcastle West, Saturday October 30th in Tournafulla at 3.00pm
County Junior A Football Final
Fr. Caseys Junior A Footballers bid to make history this coming Saturday when they take on neighbours Newcastle West in a battle to capture the County Junior A Title. Fr. Caseys last won the County Junior crown back in 2007 and next Saturday they will have three players from that team bidding for a second County Junior medal in Billy Quirke, Sean Scannell and Sean Harnett. One of the selectors on that day was Seamus McNamara who now manages the team. In 2007 it took two games to gain a narrow victory over Bruree and while next Saturdays match must finish on the day we expect another titanic struggle and would be grateful of victory in whatever form it is presented.
Despite a comfortable group stage victory over Newcastle West last August, both teams have changed significantly since. Both teams have got progressively stronger as the competition has progressed which was evident in quarter-final and semi-final victories over strong opposition. The current Fr. Caseys side represents a wonderful mix of young and old. From the veterans like Seamus Lenihan, Kevin O’Connor and Thomas Cahill who will be looking to add the Junior title to the Senior crown they won way back in 2006 to the babies of the team like Cathal Harnett, Sam Quigley, Diarmuid Buckley and Eoghan O’Connell who were still in nappies at that time. Team captain Pa O’Connor and free taker Jamie O’Connor then represent a mid-twenties group who are now anxious to add some adult silverware to their numerous underage titles.
A great game is expected next Saturday in Tournafulla with a 3pm throw in time. As with previous rounds all entry tickets must be purchased online. Please check our club Facebook page closer to the game for this purchase link. We wish all players and management the very best of luck and hopefully by Saturday evening there will be joyous celebrations once more in Abbeyfeale.
