Carrick on Suir RFC First XV will travel to Kilbarry to take on Waterford City in a pre-season friendly this Friday evening at 8pm.

The squad has put in a big effort over the past two months or so, doing a lot of gym work as well as working on set plays and one or two new moves at set-piece time and in open play.

With the assistance of Danny and Shaun at training over the summer, skipper David Kiersey has put in a tremendous effort since assuming the brief and deserves great credit for the work he’s put in up to now.

Kiersey has also organised a ‘Night At The Dogs’ at Waterford Greyhound Stadium at Kilcohan Park to raise funds to specifically aid the squad’s coaching and conditioning this season.

He’s put together a terrific programme for the night and sold, with the assistance of team mates and committee members, an astonishing number of tickets for next Saturday night (priced €10), with the first race due off at 7.55pm. Should you wish to travel by bus, please contact David, with the bus (or buses depending on demand) due to leave Main Street at 7pm. The return bus journey will cost €10.

If you’ve already bought a ticket (or two), thanks ever so much. And if you have, then please note the following: Each ticket contains a four digit ‘booster’ ticket, with the fourth night on the race being the ‘Booster Race’ and should the digits on your ticket match the finishing order of the greyhounds, then you’ll win two tickets for the Ireland/Wales Six Nations 2013 match at Lansdowne Road, including €100 and an overnight hotel stay in Dublin. A signed Munster jersey shall also be raffled on the night.
