Club Notes – 20th March 2017

*The Baile an Locha minors will have one more challenge game this Sunday at 11 am before the commencement of the league. They will be away to Kilcoo, who will compete in the All County section, and they will no doubt provide a stern test of the Loch’s credentials. The opening league game will be on Tuesday 4th April away to Dromara.

*The U16’s enjoyed a second pre-season game with a much improved display at home to Annaclone. The game was played as 15 aside. The U16’s opening league fixture will be at home to St Paul’s who ran the Fin close in the U14 grade in both games two seasons ago.

*Training in the Fin Hall this Wednesday evening; U8.5’s and U10.5’s at 6.30 pm ; U12’s and U14’s at 7.30 pm.

*The U14’s will be at home to Bright next Monday at 6.45 pm in their opening league fixture.

*Active Start GAA Coaching & Games in the Fin Hall this Saturday at 10.30 am. Once the older groups are back out on the field the U6.5’s will move to the Wednesday night slot.

*Club Membership renewals are due this Friday.

*The Fin Fun Mud Run is back ! Date for your diary Saturday 17th June 2017. More details soon.

*The club will host its first ever Cúl Camp in July between 17th to 21st. Booking details soon.

*Well done to our U16 players involved in St Malachys High School superb win over Abbey CBS in the Brock Cup, an Ulster Schools U15.5 ‘A’ competition. Morgan Croskery was the goalkeeper and Shea Croskery lined out at half forward. Conor Matthews, Dermy Lavery and Peter O’Hare are also on the panel. Good luck to the lads and their school in the next game to be played this week.

*Also well done to our U12’s players Anthony Quinn and Niall Dornan who featured in the Kevin Smith Year 8 Tournament for the host school St Malachy’s. Anthony was part of the ‘A’ team who were unlucky to lose out in the cup final to St Patrick’s Grammar School. St Malachys were hoping to win the competition for the second year in succession.
