U8 first hurling match Sat 19th May 2012

Under 8s

On Saturday morning last the next new generation of hurlers to represent our
club took to the field for their maiden under 8 match in the club colours
when Erin’s Own entertained near neighbours St Martins in two mini games in
Ballycomey. With enormous enthusiasm being shown by all players from both
teams the skill level displayed by the Erin’s Own players was magnificent as
the ball was moved up and down the field at a furious pace. With all players
having game time and not sideline time this is definitely the way to go and
the smiles on all the boys and girls at the finish shows that these new
recruits just want to play hurling. For the record but not that important
Our blue team won 7-1 to 1-1 and our white team won 5-1 to 6-0. At the end
there was ten minutes of football played with the St Martin’s just getting
the better of us. And so begins one of the longest apprenticeships in sport.
Well done to all and keep up the practice every Thursday at 6.30pm. Team

Alan Smyth, David Allen, Ewan Connery, James Kenny, John Kenny, Kiel Smyth,
Michael Rowe, Michael Brennan, Shane Holden, Katie Clarke.
