The Junior Ladies played Cappawhite in the first Round of the League last Friday April 20 in Cappawhite under very wet and windy conditions. Cappawhite came out the Winners. Training continues on Sundays depending on Fixtures. New Members always welcome.
The Under 12s have a break in the Championship. They travelled to Herbertown last Sunday to play them in a Challenge. Both sides showed a great game of Football. We came out Winners with final score Lattin- Cullen 6.4 to Herberstown 5.4. They hope to have another Challenge next Weekend.
The Under 14s had no fixture this weekend, they hope to play Cappawhite during the week to be confirmed
Co. Minor A.
Tipperary played Kerry on April 21 last in Kerry. Hard luck to Tipp on the day as Kerry were the winners. Tipp played Cork 2 weeks before that and were unsucessfull then as well. That’s the end for Tipp. Well done to Denise O’Donnell who was on the Panel.
The Lattin/Aherlow minor combo had a good win last week over Rockwell. They have two wins under their belt and are progressing nicely. The intermediate footballers had good one point win over Cappawhite in Sololhead. Well done to all!
Well done to Thomas O’Donoghue who was on the Tipp minor football team who defeated Kerry in Munster minor football chamionship in Tralee.
Cullen-Lattin’s bid to win the Division 2 title ended in play-off defeat to Killenaule Rovers at Cooke Park last Sunday. Apart from the opening twenty minutes when Killenaule got the opening goal, this was a game in which the locals had most of the possession and chances. They certainly dominated the second half and looked to be well on their way to victory when man of the match, Davy Ryan, headed the equaliser in the sixty-third minute, but wasteful shooting and their opponents conversion of their only real chance of that period, meant that victory eluded them once again. The one match suspensions imposed on three of the team and a pre-match warm up injury were also contributory factors in this disappointing final game of the season. However, the team can look forward to Division 1 football for the first time in the club’s history in 2012/’13.
