Fethard ladies footballers bow out

The Junior Ladies championship campaign came to an end in Monroe after a quarter-final loss to Clonmel Commercials. The concession of a quick goal and a point in the opening minutes didn’t do anything to settle our team. Despite several attacks on the Commercials defence, particularly in the second half, we just couldn’t take our scores. On more than one occasion, possession lost well inside the Commercials half was punished with a score at the other end of the field.

Fethard scores on the day came from Lucy Butler (0-1), Sandra Spillane (0-1), Marian Harrington (0-2), Sarah Smyth (0-1) and Sandra Maher (0-1). A huge thank you to Willie O’Meara, Kieran Treacy and Tomás Keane for their marvellous work during the year, and to all the Junior Ladies team for their tireless effort and 100% commitment in 2012. Best of luck to Commercials in the semi-final.

On Saturday, September 22, the club will hold a ‘Cash for Clobber’ fundraiser. If you have any old clothes, shoes, bags, soft toys etc, just pop them in a plastic bag and drop them off at our collection point in the car park of the GAA Field in Fethard between 11am and 1pm. The clothes can be in any condition. We will send everything for recycling; the more we recycle, the more we can earn for the club. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
