Club Notes 21st April

Monday, April 21, 2014

There was no Match 4 winner of the Club Lotto on Friday, 18th April  when the numbers drawn were 8, 12, 14 and 23 so next week, the jackpot goes up to €7,500.  If you're not already signed up please do so as not only are you in with a chance to win a serious Jackpot but you are also helping support your local club. It is €2 per week but goes a long way towards running all the facilities that we have. Niall Mullen wins the Lucky Dip and will receive €25. Further details are available

Be Fit registration next Saturday 26th April in the club between 11am and 12pm for an 8 week programme.  Are you looking to get that Summer Holiday Body or maybe a little bit of toning up or just lose a few pounds and get some fitness, then this is the place for you.  The organisers will accommodate new members of all levels of fitness as well as those who have been training with Be Fit for the past year.  If you're unsure or would like some more information then drop up to the club and have a chat with us. As always everybody is welcome

Under 14 Hurling
The U14 Hurling team take part in the Wicklow Feile competition on Saturday in Ballinakill. Matches commence at 2pm and all support for the lads would be most welcome.

Under 14 Camogie
The U14 Camogie team will take part in the Dublin Feile competition on Saturday in Oliver Plunketts. This is the second year that the girls have taken part in the Dublin Feile and all support would be welcome.

Go Games
On a lovely Monday evening some of our under 10 hurlers travelled to the centre of excellence in Ballinakill, Rathdrum. We brought an impressive 30 kids to take part where on the night they sure did us  proud with some of the best hurling seen  to date. There were so many good players on the evening to mention but this will be a team to look out for in the years to come. A big thank you to all parents who took the time to travel. It was definitely worth the trip.

Well done to Darragh Rochford, Andrew O Brien and Joe Phelan who played with the Wicklow U14 development football team last Saturday in Ballinakill. The lads represented the club with great pride and each had a telling influence on the games against Wexford and Laois, respectively.

Also a mention to our former player Pierce Sweeney who captained Reading to the U21 Premier League Cup.  We look forward to seeing Pierce up at the club in the off season.

Easter Camp
The Easter camp was a great success with the beautiful fine weather we had last week.  62 happy campers enjoyed lots of fun activities from football, hurling/camogie, skill competitions, penalty shoot-out, rounder's, tag games, drawing colouring, dance, dodge ball, orienteering and Easter Egg hunt.  The boys and girls went home happy and tired and rumour has it that they all slept well every night.  A special word of thanks to our wonderful young coaches Cathy Waters, Sophie Connolly, Jessica Conway, Roisín Quigly, Caoimhe Lohan, Sophie Mooney, Sarah Hayde, Orla Griffin, Stephen Finn, Shane Lohan, Danika Goulding, Juliette Fortune who worked tirelessly to make the camp the success it was.  Well done girls and boys we in the club are very proud of you.  Maith sibh!!!

Under 14 Football

The U14 Footballers kicked off their league campaign with a very encouraging win over Blessington in Old Conna.  After a sluggish start they found themselves trailing by a couple of points. However a very strong finish to the half saw Bray Emmets leading at half time. The lads came flying out of the blocks after half time and never looked back running out 8-13 to 3-7 winners in the end. 

This was very much a team performance with all players contributing to the victory on the night.

Team: James Anders, Andrew O'Brien, Ronan McMahon, Sid Hunt, Davey Maloney, Donnchadh Griffin, Joe Phelan, Ciaran McKay, Tony Jackson, Conrad Ruddy, Andrew Conway, Ben Kearney, MacDara O Mhidheach, Mick O'Gara, Cian Lohan, Charley Delaney Byrne, Seanie McDonagh
