Kickham GAA Juvenile club Notes.

U/14 (B) Football.

Our U/ 14 Footballers had a great win over a strong Galtee Rovers side in the West final which was played in Sean Treacy Park on Monday night last. The lads gave a great display of football which saw them emerge victorious even though they were 5 points behind after the opening ten minutes. We now look forward to the Co.stages and we hope for the same great support that the lads got in the final. Well done to allconcerned.

West Senior Hurling.

Our senior hurlers played Cappawhite in Golden on Friday last and after a tight game emerged victorious on the score 4-7 to 1-7. Our last game in the league stages will be against Eire Og Annacarty, but as yet no fixture date has been decided. See match report.
