U12’s played a challenge match against Moyle Rovers last Thursday in Sean Treacy Park. It was a great game with both teams putting in an immense performance. Moyle Rovers proved to be the stronger team on the night but our ladies showed that they would be a force to be reckoned with when they start their championship league.
U16’s played Thurles Sarsfields’ in the latest round of the championship in Seam Treacy Park on Sunday. It was a tale of two halves with strong winds playing a major factor in the game. Arravale Rovers played this advantage in the first half racking up scores that proved to be vital going into the second half. Thurles had the wind in their backs for the second half and brought the score line close to anyone’s game. However, Rovers refused to give up and battled against the wind to score the goals and points that put them 2 points ahead as the final whistle blew. It was a riveting performance from both teams and one well worth watching from the sidelines. Well done, ladies.

On Thursday, April 4 the boys played Kickhams but unfortunately came out on the wrong side of a tough game. The final score was Kickhams 1-9 Arravale Rovers 1-0. The team did not perform and were beaten by the better team. Kickhams were faster to the ball and played clever football throughout. Players who played well were Eamon Ryan and Adam O Donnell. The team play Clonoulty/Rossmore on Thursday, April 11 in Sean Tracey Park. Our U12 A team also played Kickhams on Thursday and they too lost on a score line of Arravale Rovers 2.2 Kickhams 5.7.

Our U10 hurlers and footballers went to Thurles for a Blitz in Dr Morris Park. We had 17 players who went, and so, we made two teams each playing three highly competitive matches. The boys and coaches had a fantastic day out in the sun in Thurles.
