Best of luck to all our players doing both college and school exams over the next number of weeks.  Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday’s at 7pm

Junior B Ladies Football

History was created in the club on Monday last when a second adult team was fielded in competition for the first time.  This team was introduced to allow players gain increased match time in a competitive environment.  Great credit is due to both young and not so young players who battled hard with neighbours Fermoy in the first round of the East Cork championship.  Rathcormac was the venue and on a wet dreary evening the girls fought diligently only to be beaten by two scores.  The result was 2.10 to 1.7 and Fermoy were deserving winners.  In the next number of weeks a second game will be scheduled for this team.

Panel and scorers V  Fermoy B: Eadaoin Cashman, Imelda Dorgan, Erin O’ Keeffe, Mary McHugh, Carol Noonan, Mary Hazelwood, Claire Murphy, Trish O’ Sullivan, Clodagh Butler, Katie Kelleher, Michelle Boyce, Sinead O’ Driscoll, Deirdre Moroney, Rebecca Howard, Aine Cashman, Katie O’ Connor, Dayna Connolly, Yris Bloemhoff, Shannon Sheehan.

Junior Camogie

Friday, April 29th

Result: Bride Rovers : 2.13

            Sars 2:            0.04

On a beautiful evening for camogie, we played Sars at home. From the off, we dominated the play and built up a large lead by half time. The forwards contributed some fine scores to make the half time score 2.12 to a point. Two changes were made at half time which saw Shannon Sheehan come on at corner back, while Yris Bloemhoff took up a corner forward position. The second half was a more level affair. We had numerous wides and only added a point to the scoreboard with Sars putting over three points from  frees. The team played very well and special praise needs to be given to Jenny, Mary, Chloe and Shannon who all played an U16 game the night before. 

Team: I. Hogan, A. Cashman, L. Finnegan, C. Noonan, I. Dorgan, S. Walsh, M. Hazelwood, E. Ahern, L. Murphy, C. O’ Flynn, G. Kearney, J. Cahill, C. Vaughan, S O’ Driscoll, A O’ Flynn. Subs: S. Sheehan, Y. Bloemhoff
