Castlelyons Juvenile GAA Club Notes 30.03.17
Last Saturday we travelled to Fermoy to play our first hurling game of the year. The Fermoy team had some very strong players and we were under pressure from early on. The game was played over 3*15 minute periods. By the end of the 2nd period Fermoy were well in front. However our boys never gave up and as the game went on we were improving all the time. It was a tough match for our first league game of the year, but it was great to see so many players for our first game. We had a record number of players turn up on the day, 16 in total. It was a bit hectic at times on the side line getting all of them on and off the pitch, but despite the defeat they all got great enjoyment from playing the game. The players on the day were Torin O'Brien, Richard Barry, Kevin Barry, Luke Morrison, Jack Burke, Cathal Sheehan, Ewan Long, Rory Condon, Dylan Leech, Jack Reals, Shane Hussey, Adam Lardner, Sean Og Maguire, Oisin Cronin, Lee Ryan, Peter Verling.
Next Saturday we are back to football again and we are playing away to St Nicholas.
Last Friday we played Ballycastle at home. This was ½ Football and ½ Hurling. Ballycastle had a large panel and have some excellent players which made for two good games.
