Preview Castlelyons v Youghal J “B” H C in Lisgoold Friday at 7.45pm

Castlelyons play Youghal in the East Cork Junior B Championship in Lisgoold at 7.45pm (note the change back from 8pm originally) this Friday evening the 29.6.17 with Paudie Kearney the referee. It is interesting to note that for the Minor Cork v Tipp game in Thurles at 7.30pm tonight (Thursday) the lights were turned on at half time so hopefully we will not be poking for the sliotar towards the end in Lisgoold.

Our lads have played three league games losing one and winning two. Youghal have also played three games losing two and drawing one game. But this is the championship and even though we have a few challenge games played as well Youghal are a formidable outfit with a load of senior experience. Players like Ryan Cody, Johnathan Ormond and that great ould stalwart Vince Murray can dine in any parlour and we must get our match ups right or we could be eating the left overs.

However, we have some great young hurlers coming on and we had thirty togged out for the recent Intermediate championship and when you add John Paul Murphy for the goals, Mark Murphy and Padraig Murphy a recent transfer from Aghabullogue both will have a steadying influence in the backs. It is important that our second team keeping the flag flying this year due to the exit of the Intermediates. We will be hoping that the strong numbers and blend of youth and experience will carry the evening for us. All support appreciated. Best of luck to all. Castlelyons Abú.
