Rathcline Club Notes 22nd May 2016

posted 26 May 2016, 11:26 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

On Sunday afternoon the senior team travelled to Ballymahon to take on the home side in the Leader Cup. This was a much improved performance by the lads ad they were very unlucky not to come away with the two points. We had to settle with appoint each after a draw Rathcline 2-8 to Ballymahon 0-14pts.

Having held a convincing lead, we allowed Ballymahon back into the game. Our performance was very good. There is no doubting the ability of our team and with the continuing rising of the fitness levels they are getting to a position that they will be picking up more and more points as the league continues.

Next Friday we will welcome Killoe to Clonbonny for the next round of the Leader Cup. The throw in time is 8.15 and we hope there will be a big attendance for this game. The following Sunday week we will travel to Fr. Mc Gee Park for another round of the league against Colmcille, throw in 2.30pm.

50/50: Last Monday night the weekly 50/50 club draw took place in Clarke’s bar. The lucky winner last week was Pat Smyth, Rathcline Road who received €352.

Your support for the 50/50 is vital and we encourage your support each week. All you do is contribute €2 and put it in the designated blue envelope and perhaps it will be you next week.

The U16 team had a wonderful victory on Tuesday last when they beat St. Francis/St. Vincent’s 3-12 to 4-5.  As with the other meetings between these teams was little to nothing between both sides. This was a hard won and hard grafted victory by the Western Gaels U16 team. There were many outstanding individual displays but it was the unity of purpose by everyone that seen the lads through in the end.

The U13 panel will travel to Maguire Park, Ballinalee, for their blitz where they take on East Longford at 7.45pm and Granard/Ballymore at 8.30pm.

The future is bright! Last week we had an U8 blitz in Clonbonny and it was marvellous to see such a wonderful turnout and great performances by each and every young player. The greatest pleasure is to see so many out in Clonbonny enjoying themselves and improving their skills. The sounds of laughter and our players having fun is what we are all about.

The club would like to extend their sincere sympathy to Ann, Alan and Conn Maxwell on the death of Ann’s mother Mrs Nan Creed, Foynescourt, Longford and formerly Newtowncashel.
