Rathcline Club Notes 3rd August 2014

posted 5 Aug 2014, 11:22 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Our Intermediate team suffered a defeat at the hands of Carrickedmond, in the league, on Saturday last. Carrickedmond played with purpose and strength for most of the game and in dreadful conditions the Rathcline team never got a foothold in the match. Rathcline only registered 2 points in the first half and Carrickedmond scored goals and points with ease. The second half Rathcline re grouped and started to have a real go at Carrickedmond. Our lads made the score line look a little better when we scored 1-2 without reply near the end of the match. The final score was Carrickedmond 1 – 10 Rathcline 1 – 6.

All focus is now on the 2nd round of the Intermediate championship. Rathcline take on Ballymore in Emmet Park, Killoe at 8 o clock on Friday evening. After an impressive win over Legan the boys must take on Ballymore who after beating Grattans will be themselves looking to make it two wins out of two games. The lads have been training hard and your support for the team would be appreciated. We wish the management and team the very best of luck!

A brilliant day out was had by all whom attended the Galway races. A decent fundraiser for the club, it has become a great social occasion. By all accounts it was a thrilling day of punting, socialising and dancing. Thanks to the executive members who prepared the event and to everyone who supported, sponsored and went along on the day.

There was no winner of the lotto jackpot, next week’s jackpot is €1400. The weekly winners were, Sean Hogan Ballyleague, Michael Shanley Kilashee, Kevin “Chappy” Chapman, and James and Cathal Mulvihill Cashel.

Big shout to Sinead Farrell, daughter of the legendary duo Mary and Fintan. Sinead captained the Longford ladies to Leinster success in football. The club are proud of Sinead and the other Rathcline players who represented their county. Well done to all.

Just another reminder that the club are looking for volunteers for the strictly come dancing fundraiser later on in the year. This promises to be an exciting night, Faithleachs and Rathcline are coming together for a strictly come dancing show and already there is great interest. If you would like to be involved please contact Pat Connerton or Lorraine Farrell for more details.

Rathcline Minor Club

Big thanks to Tracy Tobin who led the Rathcline choir at the G2 mass. Lots of singing talent in our Minor set up and well done to all involved.

There are a lot games at minor level coming up, here are a few dates for your diary, U 14 c’ship the 12th of August, the U 16 c’ship gets underway Tuesday the 5th of August.

The U 12’s are playing Edgeworthstown this Tuesday evening in Clonbonny. The Minor championship kicks off on Monday the 11th of August. For all these games it’s imperative that parents come out and support the future stars of our club. We would like to wish all the management and teams the very best of luck in their respective championships.

The Minor Club sports/fun day had to be cancelled after monsoon conditions engulfed Lanesboro on Saturday. The day will be rescheduled.

All of the club would like to congratulate the G2 committee on a great August bank holiday. It took a lot of work and well done to all the volunteers and stewards that took part.
