Rathcline Club Notes 5th October 2014

posted 8 Oct 2014, 11:13 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer
To football first and although it's October, there is the matter of the league final to think about this Friday. Rathcline take on Carrickedmond, newly crowned Intermediate champions. Rathcline had a great win over Cashel in the semi final and although late in the season, it's nothing more than our lads deserve. The game takes place at 8.30 in Cashel, this promises to be another hard fought game, and our lads are looking forward to it. Please come out and... support the lads in what will be the last game of the season.

The club have launched a new draw, the 50/50 draw will take place every Monday night, it's a fundraiser that allows people of the parish to purchase an envelope for €2. Each week sellers and business's will have the envelopes for sale. They are put into a drum and a winner is picked. If there is €500 in the kitty for the week then the winner gets €250. We need people to support this venture as the club is used by many, but supported by few. These €2 envelopes have been very successful in other parishes and we hope that the people of Rathcline support ours. Tickets will be available from Monday onwards, you can buy as many or as few as you want, but we would urge everyone to give this fundraiser a go, check our facebook page for more details, thank you .

There was no overall winner in the weekly Rathcline Lotto, the €25 weekly winners were Cian & Coilin O Brien, Gareth Johnston, Eugene Hester, and Roseleen Egan. The numbers drawn were 12,14,32,35,39, and 41.

Minor Notes

Hard luck to the Minor Western Gaels team who were defeated in the A championship semi final. Clonguish proved too strong on the day, these lads have put in tremendous effort all season but on this occasion they were just second best to a strong Clonguish team. This by no means is the end for our Minor team. The lads are contesting an A league final, and a B championship final. All in all a fantastic achievement by players and management, please check fixture list and facebook page for details on up- coming finals.

The U 14's play Carrickedmond in the championship final this Saturday in Pearse Park. The game throws in at 1pm. I've noted before that all or under age teams have put in huge effort throughout the season. This team is no different and a lot of coaching and planning has gone into this side. We need parents whose sons are playing to get out and support the lads, it's vital they have the backing of the parish in these one off, special games.
