St Molleran’s intermediate hurling team’s league play off against Erins Own was called off on Sunday last because a neutral venue was unavailable for the game.

No date has been set for the rescheduled fixture.

The Club’s U-14 hurlers were beaten by Abbeyside in a championship game last Thursday.

The team were too slow out of the blocks and were 1-05 to no score down inside the first quarter. However, they rallied and we were only four points adrift at half time.

A team clawed back their opponents lead to the minimum in the second half but Abbeyside pulled away again and won by six points. Next game for the U-14s is in Stradbally on Monday, September 3.

After a fantastic win over Portlaw in the first round, the U-12 footballers were to play a match last Friday but the game was cancelled due to bad weather conditions.

St Molleran’s U-11 footballerss play their next blitz in Rathgormack this Friday.

The Club ran its GAA Cul Camp last week and it was an outstanding success.

Although the final day was cancelled due to bad weather, the children enjoyed four fun filled days, the highlight being the arrival of Waterford senior hurler Kevin Moran.

Thanks to everyone involved especially the coaches, kids, parents, Willy Foley and Supervalu which sponsored light refreshments.

The Club wishes Sean Og Reade, Robbie Keane and Paul Keane all the best as they take charge of Waterford U-14 hurlers with the Tony Forristal and Sonny Walsh teams this weekend.

The Club also wishes player Jack Reade the best of luck as he lines out for the county with the Sonny Walsh team. Jack has put in some fine performances with both club and county over the past year and follows in the footsteps of his late grandfather, the great Sean Reade, his late grand uncle Larry, his grand uncle Tony and his cousin Tony in donning the white and blue jersey.

Sadly the economic climate has forced St Molleran’s to say goodbye to yet another player who has been held in the highest esteem by both friend and opponent for the last few years.

We join in the whole community in wishing Benny Raggett the very best with his new life in New Zealand. He is a fine sportsman and a very likeable young man, who will be missed by all of in the Club.
