Rathcline Club Notes 13th July 2014

posted 14 Jul 2014, 01:27 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer
Well done to our senior men on a hard fought victory against Grattans on Friday evening. Grattans were well organised defensively and Rathcline were finding it difficult to score in the 1st half. At half time the we were losing to Grattans. In the 2nd half however Rathclines persistence paid off with an excellent display of football and point taking. The defenc...e stayed strong while our midfield had more of the ball, the forwards took scores whenever presented with chances and slowly the game turned in Rathcline's favour. A very good game in terms of our championship game this weekend, and I'm sure Grattans will prove difficult opponents to whom ever they play in the championship.

The 2014 intermediate championship gets under way when Rathcline play Legan in the 1st round this Sunday in Ballymahon. Throw in is at 6pm, the team come into the championship with a healthy set of wins under their belts and confidence on the up. Any person who supports Rathcline always looks forward to the championship and this year is no different. The lads have trained hard and its a game everyone in the club is looking forward to. Your support would be greatly appreciated this Sunday in Ballymahon for the 6pm throw in. We wish the management and team the very best of luck!

Thanks to all the people who bought and sold tickets for the world cup draw. Everyone that bought a ticket will have a specific time for when the first goal is scored. A winner will be announced during the week. The €2 scratch cards have been a big hit with local people and the money will go towards paying the loan for the pitch. Thanks again to everyone who supported this fund raiser.

There was no winner of the Rathcline Lotto this week. The numbers drawn were 5, 19, 28, 29, 39 and 43. The €25 winners were Amy and Danny O Sullivan Gurteengar, John Killian Knock, Mike Greene The Green, and Tom Mulvihill Culentra.

Well done to the Lanesboro triathlon club on another excellent event this year. Thanks to all our club members for helping out on the day, it was a great success and well done to all the management and participants.

Rathcline Ladies
Hard luck to our senior ladies who suffered a defeat by Ballymore in the 2nd round of the senior championship. The ladies were beaten by 7 pts in the end, but with some players missing put in a brave performance. There are two games left, the ladies play Clonguish and Killoe in the next few weeks. Pleae support our Rathcline ladies who have put in huge effort and commitment throughout the year.

Our U 14's girls beat Carrickedmond in the semi final of the championship. The final is on Thursday, when the girls take on Clonguish. Please check fixture details in the paper for time and venue. These are the stars of the future and we wish Steve, Madeline and the team the very best of luck!

Rathcline Minor Club
The minors had a fantastic win over Killoe last Monday evening. The lads beat a strongly fancied Killoe team by 5 pts. They have been training hard and a result like that shows that it's all worth it.

The U 16 team take to the pitch against Cashel on Wednesday night in the special league. This is a local derby match and all players are asked to make themselves available. The U 14's had a good win over Faithleachs in a challenge match and the U 12 team beat Drumshambo in a challenge last week. All these games are leading up to the championship games in Longford soon.

The minor club would urge parents to make sure that players are at matches. We as a club are down in numbers from other years and it's vitally important that players turn up for training and matches. Missing players are taking away from themselves and their team mates, it just has a huge adverse effect on team morale. So again we want to ask parents to be pro active in getting their sons out to training and matches, thanks.

Congrats to Mark Lyons and Iarlaith Sullivan who made the county U 16 squad. We wish them the best of luck in the Shield final.
