Our u-14 girls played the competitive county blitz last Saturday in Monroe. We entered 2 mixed teams, one with the girls who will be over age and some of the younger girls plus a team of the girls underage again next year and the girls who will be moving up to u-14 next year. Both teams acquitted themselves admirably with our younger team unlucky to lose their games having held the lead in all their games. Our older team played in the A competition and were gauranteed at leas…t a semi final in which the beat a dogged Templemore side. In the final we played Thurles Sars and were unlucky to find ourselves 1-1 down after a minute. We regrouped and kept our opponents on the back foot for the remainder of the half where we trailed 1-3 to 1-1. We immediately levelled the game with 2 quickfire points. Sars added a point before a long range goal put us 2 clear. The decisive moment came when Sars netted themselves and with time running out we committed ourselves in search of a goal only to be caught on the break.
All the girls from both our teams performed brilliantly on the day,
We would like to thank all the girls for their commitment over the year and we wish all the girls the very best for the future.
We will be hosting our first and hopefully annual dinner dance on the 13 of November
in the clonmel park hotel. After a 3 course meal we will be having a medal presentation for the teams who were successful and then we will dance the night away to a live band and then Dj and bar extension until the wee hours.
The night is intended to be a celebration of the year and how far we have come as a club .
Tickets are 35 euro and will be available soon , due to a restriction on ages only girls from our u-14 panel upwards will be allowed to attend.
Because the dance is only open to the girls from U-14 up we will still be holding our christmas party for the U6/U8/U10 and U12s.
Well done to our U-16 girls who competed in the All Ireland 7 aside competition last weekend held by Killmurry Ibrikane in Quilty Co Clare. The football on show was of a terrific standard with clubs travelling from all over to compete in this illustrious tournament.
The Fethard girls put in some incredible performances en route to the semi finals where they came up against an extremely good Corrafin side from Galway. After 4 battling performances the semi proved a step too far for the girls who had given their all right to the final whistle in every game. The girls can be extremely proud of their effort and as always represented their club brilliantly
No rest fot the U-16s this weekend as they will compete in the annual Mary and Mollie tournament on in Abbeyside, Dungarvan this Saturday. Could all girl be there for 12.20, please let management know of your availability
Best of luck to our Junior ladies who will line out against Moyne Templetuohy in the Junior B championship semi final thisFriday 11th sept at 7 in Templetuohy. The winner will have short time to recover as the final is set for Sunday with Thurles Sarsfields awaiting. We wish the ladies the very best of luck and lets hope they take another step towards more silverware for the club
