LOUGHMORE/CASTLEINEY G.A.A. CLUB Weekly Notes 3rd March 202003 Mar 2020
U/21 B Football: Despite the inclement weather that has prevailed in recent weeks our grounds in Castleiney was in reasonable condition for our Mid B U/21 semi final v Boherlahan on Sunday last. Played in cold windy conditions the standard of play from both sides was good overall.
At half time, against the tricky wind we held a 1-06 to 1-02 lead. Assisted by the wind in the second period the lads added 3-03 to their tally, running out 4-09 to 1-04 victors and a place in the Mid final v Upperchurch.
Our junior B football game v Nenagh was called off due to ground conditions.
Fixtures: On Sunday next at 11.30am in Caslteiney County senior hurling league Division 1 Round v Drom.
Also on Sunday at 4pm in Templemore Mid U/21 B football final v Upperchurch.
At our recent club meeting Secretary Tom McGrath stepped down as club secretary following six years in office. Tom had indicated at AGM that he would continue until a successor was appointed. Tom, as in many years as an officer in the club carried out his duties in an excellent and efficient way and the club wishes him well in the future, but feel asssured he will be on hand to assist in many other ways with the club. Thanks Tom.
The club’s new secretary is Maureen Connolly, a present senior selector and no stranger to the roll in general as she was secretary with the busy work of juvenile secretary over the years. We welcome Maureen into the roll and wish her every success.
A meeting of the Bloody Sunday Commemoration committee will take place on this Wednesday night at 8.30pm in the club rooms.
