Elphin GAA CLUB NOTES 30th JUNE 2014

November 8, 2018


A very young Junior team lost out to St. Brigids in the opening round of the Championship on Saturday. The game was very even in the first quarter but half-time St. Brigids had built up a 14 point lead. Elphin came storming back at the resumption and had the deficit back to 7 points with 12 minutes left however the home side fought back and the game finished St. Brigids 2-22 Elphin 2-9. Cillian Fox had an outstanding game, while others to shine were Darren Lee, Michael Glancy and Brendan Neary. Credit must go to both teams for a very sporting and enjoyable game. 


Minor training continues on Tuesday and Thursday at 8pm and all panellists are asked to attend. It is hoped to play a number of challenge games over the coming weeks in preparation for the Championship. 


Under 16 training takes place on Wednesday at 7pm and the team host St. Aidans in the Championship on Friday at 7pm. 


The Under 14s play Kilglass Gaels/St. Barrys in the Championship on Thursday at 7:30pm in Tarmonbarry. 


The Under 12s last League game with St. Dominics was rescheduled and is due to take place this Sunday. 


The next phase of the Under 8 Blitz Series begins in Kilbride on Saturday morning at 11am. We are in Group 4 with Kilbride, Éire Óg, Castlerea St Kevins, and St Ronans.
