Enniscrone/Kilglass GAA notes 25th June 2017
We have been overwhelmed with the generosity of the local community and indeed beyond in our fundraising efforts for the new Indoor Astro Turf complex. After last week’s collection we are at €70200 and wish to thank all of those who have donated already for their fantastic generosity. We still require €5000 more to hit our target, and anyone who wishes to sponsor a block or a brick can visit our website or contact any committee member.
Our intermediate team secured a 2-16 to 0-7 win over Eastern Harps on Saturday evening in Gurteen. On a difficult evening with many players absent, those present gave a very assured display. There was also the welcome return of Nathan Hannon to the black and amber and he had a fine hour at midfield. The team play St Mary’s next Saturday evening at 7.30pm in Quigabar.
The Enniscrone-Kilglass/Easkey minor team had their league game against Curry rescheduled to July 11th. They will also have a game on Thursday evening – either a cup or shield semi-final. Keep an eye out for details.
Our U-14s endured an agonising defeat when they succumbed to Tubbercurry/Cloonacool in an exciting Division Two Shield final at Scarden last Friday, 6-8 to 3-14. The lads will be very disappointed at the outcome having dominated the game, but they missed too many goal chances and the winners came good at the end to secure the honours. Nonetheless, our lads acquitted themselves very well throughout the league and look forward to the championship. Thanks to the great travelling support on the evening.
Our U-12s play St Patrick’s on Tuesday evening at 7pm in Dromard.
Commiserations to Ciaran O’Dowd, Josh Ellis, Eoin Hallinan and the Sligo minors on losing out to Galway in the Connacht MFC final last Sunday at Pearse Stadium 3-11 to 0-10. Josh started at full-back, while Ciaran occupied the left-half forward position. The team still qualify for the All-Ireland quarter-finals, where they will play Derry or Cavan in the coming weeks.
There was no winner of last Saturday’s blotto jackpot. Next week’s jackpot will be €9300.
