Castlwellan GAC Weekly Notes

November 8, 2018

*The Under14 Hurling Team headed to Warrenpoint last Saturday for the 2013Féile. In poor conditions the lads battled hard but just came up short againstClonduff 2-0 to 0-3 and against Shamrock’s by 2-4 to 1-2. The battlingperformance of the team augurs well for the season ahead.  The slippy conditions made it hard to hold ahurl yet everyone coped admirably and with a little more luck in front of goalthey could well have turned the large amount of possession into more scores.Hard luck lads. Training Tuesday at 6.15 pm. Hurling Training for P5/P6/P7 boysis at 6.15pm on Wednesday at the Bann Road.

*The Senior Reserve Footballers had a mixed weekend in the All County PremiereReserve League Division 1. On Friday night past they visited Saval and recordedan emphatic victory over their hosts in a game they played very well rompinghome with quite a bit to spare. On Sunday fortunes were reversed when theyplayed Burren at Derryleckagh. In what was a very tight game the lads lost outby a single point in an exciting game against the team favourites to win that League.

* This Sunday will see the Feisbeing held in St Malachy’s Park. We are fortunate to be represented by ourMinor and Senior Footballers in The Sevens Finals against Mayobridge andClonduff respectfully. The best of luck to all the lads. It was 1989 when welast had both teams in the final in the same year. We are also happy to recordthat we won both competitions that day in what was a very sunny Newcastle. Wehope this occasion will be blessed with good weather for everyone participatingat the Feis.
