Cashel King Cormac’s News

Juvenile News: Last week saw the club run its annual “School of Excellence”. This year it was named after the late Mickie Browne in recognition of his total commitment, dedication and more important his love of the club. To get the week under way Liam Browne spoke to the kids on the importance of teamwork and urged everyone to enjoy the coaching and improve on all aspects of their game in both hurling and football. Thankfully the weather while not at its best was kind for the most part and every player got the most from three days in which they received a Gaelic football and Sliothar for their efforts during the week. A special thanks to Kevin Hally and his team of coaches and to our own Juvenile chairman Joe McGrath and his committee for making sure everything went off without a hitch. Also to the lads in leahy park for having the pitches in fine fettle for the week and finally to all the players who participated, a big well done and good luck for the championships ahead.

U12 Football: Cashel King Cormacs U12A Footballers suffered their first defeat in the championship last week with a narrow 4-point defeat to a very strong and unbeaten Galtee side. Cashel never really fired on the day and battled hard in the second half to try and bridge the gap. The Final Score ended up Cashel 2-3 Galtee 3-4. Best on the day were captain Eoghan Connolly, Ryan O Sullivan and Fearghail O Donoghue. Cashel now meet Kickhams this Thursday to determine whom they will meet in the West Semi Final. (Scorers for Cashel: E Connolly 1-3, F O Donoghue 1-0)

Community Games: In preparation for the upcoming community Games our U.11’s welcomed Cappawhite to leahy park on Sunday for a challenge. A decent crowd were certainly entertained with the opening half keenly contested. Both teams exchanged some excellent scores in the second half with Cappawhite emerging winners by a goal. There is plenty of room for improvement and it will be needed if we are to repeat our achievements of last year going all the way to the final in Semple Stadium losing out to a strong Roscrea side in the end. Lets hope this is the start of a similar journey. There is a possibility of a hurling blitz next weekend in Ballygiblin, as the week moves on we will confirm and notify each player of the exact arrangements.

Tipperary Minor Footballers: It was business as usual for Tipperary in the Minor championship as they kicked off the defence of their titles with a superb win over Kerry in Austin Stack Park on Saturday evening last. It was in particular a special night for clubman Dylan Fitzell as he led his team onto the pitch and played a captains part right through the game leading his charges to victory on a scoreline of 2-09 to 0-08. Well done also to Gearoid Slattery sub-goalie this year no doubt Gearoid will be ready for action if the opportunity arises we wish both players the very best throughout this years campaign. It doesn’t get any easier for Tipp with Cork next up in Munster Semi Final on May 16th.

County U.21 Football B Semi Final: Our U.21 footballers are due to play Clonmel Óg this weekend in the county semi final. At the moment a fixture is not to hand so check with club officers for definite details during the week. Whenever and wherever the game is held we hope a strong Cashel support make the effort to get behind the team and management. Once details are known all members will be notified by txt. Best of luck to all involved.
