Club Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 18.04.11
The Seniors got their first win of the League campaign away to Gaoth Dobhair last Saturday but in a reversal of fortune, the Reserves lost their first game of the year. Both teams will have a Championship warm-up this Monday with home games against Dungloe in the Park, times to be confirmed.
The Junior Men Footballers still await the beginning of their League and the word seems to be that it will be aone round of games and not home and away, which is very disappointing as it will not offer many games of football over the season.
Thanks you to everyone that turned up to help at last week’s Bag Pack in Tesco. In particular Ciaran Maguire and his U-14 Boys, Brian McGeehin and his U-12 Boys, Jim Clarke, Celine McMenamin, Anne Forde and Tracey McVeigh who all put in big shifts to help out.
There was a Minor Board meeting on Monday night in the Clubhouse. At a fairly uneventful meeting, the main topic now that the underage season is up and running was the buses. All managers have been sent a template to help them collect their bus money, so please use it or make your own.
The Minor Boys Footballers had a good win over MacCumhaills last week, they have a home game against Malin this Friday in the Park at 7:30pm.
The U-16 Boys footballers will play their rescheduled game with Termon this Friday in the Park with a 12 noon throw-in. The U-16 Div. 2 team put up a great display in Fanad before going down by 2 points in a game where the appointed Ref failed to appear.
The James Gallagher Memorial Cup is underway. In the South, Ardara defeated Aodh Rua before drawing with Naomh Conaill. In the North, our lads began their challenge by winning a close game with Gaoth Dobhair by 3-05 to 1-04. They take on Fanad in their next game.
Congratulations to Kinieshia McKinney on being appointed Captain of the Co. U-16 Girls team for 2011.
The St. Eunan’s Minor Hurlers drew with MacCumhaills last Thursday in an excellent game of hurling. The U-14 Hurlers also beat MacCumhaills. The U-14 Hurling County Feile was held in O’Donnell Park last Thursday with 7 teams taking part. St. Eunan’s beat Carndonagh and followed this up with a draw against a very strong Aodh Rua. They then had a convincing win over Burt. In the play-off in against Aodh Rua for a place in the final a tired St. Eunan’s went down in the last few seconds to Aodh Rua. Magnificent achievement for this very young team who had to play 3 straight games in a row without any substitutes. The U-12 Hurlers had a sucessful Blitz on Sunday winning 2 out of 3 games. The U-14 Camogie team had their County Feile on Sunday. This very young team produced strong performances against the eventual winners Burt. Special thanks to everyone who supported the Camogie table quiz. We raised approx €500 for the Club. The Easter County Camogie Camp will be held in Burt next week. Details from your managers.
U-12 & U-14 Hurling Training 5:30pm each Tuesday. U16 & Minor training at 5:30pm Monday.
