JK Bracken’s & Loughmore notes

U21 Football: We won our first piece of silverware of the 2014 season when our U21 footballers overcame our neighbours Loughmore/Castleiney in the Mid final at the Ragg on Saturday last. A hearty well done to the players and management who will savour this win for a long time to come. Next up for this bunch is a County semi-final. See report.

Membership: Please note membership is now due so if you haven’t done so please get your subscription in to our Registrar, Ronan Loughnane, as soon as possible.

Senior Football: Our Senior Footballers took on Moyne-Templetuohy in the Martin Costigan Tournament last Friday night in Templetuohy under lights. Minus their U21 contingent this proved to be a worthwhile workout for our footballers with Brackens overcoming Moyne/Templetuohy by 1-11 to 0-11.

Sympathies: The club would like to extend its sympathies to the family and friends of our Juvenile Club Chairman, Mick Byrne, on the death of his father, Michael, in Dublin last weekend, also to the Moran family on their bereavement.

Minor B Football: On St. Patrick’s Day our minor B footballers commenced the 2014 campaign when they faced Thurles Gaels in Kickham Park. At the end of a high scoring encounter we were defeated 3-10 to 6-04. We now must pick up the pieces for our remaining games to make the semi finals.

Senior Hurling Challenge Cup: Having lost our first game we must gain victory in our Tuesday night game v Knockavilla Kickhams in Clonoulty. (report next week).

U/21 County Football: We say well done to our players on Wednesday night last in defeating Waterford in the Munster quarter final. We wish them well on this Wednesday night in the Munster semi final v Clare in Miltown Malbay.
