U15 South Tipperary Hurling Roger Ryan success for Fethards Stephen Crotty.
Congratulations to our own Stephen Crotty for his part in last weekends success in the Roger Ryan inter divisional tournament played in testing conditions in Toomevara. South Tipp were crowned champions after victories over Mid and West Tipp and a draw versus North Tipp, well done to Stephen and continued success into the future. Mick O Mahony Chairman Fethard Juvenile Club
Best of luck to Ryan Walsh from the Fethard Juvenile Gaa Club who will line out with the South Tipperary U14 Hurling team in the inter divisional Roger Ryan tournament in Borrisileigh this weekend.
“After over a month of training sessions and challenge games, the u14 footballers finally got their season underway on Thursday 9th April with a home championship fixture versus Kilsheelan-Kilcash. Captained by Darragh Hurley, and despite playing some good football, they went down to defeat. This being only the first round of the group games, the team can still look forward to their remaining three games with lots of optimism.
The following Saturday (the 11th), the team traveled to Ardfinnan to take on the home side in the quarter-final of the South Peil na nOg. The boys had an excellent win against a strong Ardfinnan team on a scoreline of 1-6 to 1-3 and now move into the semi-final to be played on Sunday 19th.
The Feile na nOg u14 club hurling tournament takes place in Tipperary and Waterford over the weekend of 17-19 June. This is a huge undertaking by the two host counties, with in excess of 5,000 players taking part and 450 games being played over the course of the weekend. Fethard’s u14 hurling squad will be hosting in their homes a team from Ireland’s north-west, Aodh Ruadh CLG of Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal. The club is really looking forward to this and preparations for what will be a great weekend are now in full swing.”
U10’s trip to Dr. Morris Park Friday 15th
“We had a strong turnout for this U10 football blitz with 19 out of a squad of 23 turning out to play. Unfortunately the others were either sick or could not travel for other reasons. We entered 2 teams on the night and all players put in solid performances. We had 100% success rate with both team playing four games & each winning all 4 games. It was a cold night with a strong wind at times but the boys coped well under the conditions.
Thanks to all the players for turning out in such strong numbers and indeed to the parents for travelling and braving the elements.”
