Top hurling teams compete in field tournament

St Molleran’s teams found out their opponents for the season ahead following the draw for the East Waterford Intermediate hurling and football championships.

In the Intermediate Hurling championship, St Molleran’s are in a group with Ferrybank, Ballyduff, De La Salle, Ballygunner and Butlerstown.

And in the Intermediate Football championship, St Molleran’s are grouped with Portlaw, John Mitchels, Newtown and Gaultier.

St Molleran’s have some mouth watering clashes coming up in both hurling and football.

The Club wishes all St Molleran’s adult and juvenile teams the very best for the year ahead. Last year, the Intermediate hurlers gave the club a great lift with their outstanding performances throughout the year.

While the team didn’t win the championship, they were rewarded for their hard work and commitment when they were crowned league champions on November 2.

The Intermediate footballers find themselves in a very tough group but this team can put it up to the best in the county when they play well. If their performances can become more consistent, there is no reason why they cannot reach the knockout stages of the competition.

The Club is organising its annual field tournament at the moment. The tournament was a great success last year with some outstanding games played.

Top class teams will be involved once again and it be a chance for the public to see some of the stars of the modern game in action.

Meanwhile, the Club has received the grading for all its juvenile teams and hopes to resume training soon.

All players and intending players will be notified of their training schedules in the coming weeks.

St.Molleran’s have a number of underage players involved with county development squads at the moment.

The Club wishes them the best of luck and hope they will make the panel for their respective teams.

There are also adults from the Club involved as mentors for various underage county teams.

The Club wishes them plenty of success. The experience they are gaining will be a great help to St Molleran’s in the future.

St.Molleran’s GAA Club wishes a happy birthday to Johnny Doyle, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday. Johnny is the last surviving member from St Molleran’s first hurling team.

The Club’s Intermediate/Junior teams are running a Premier League last man standing competition starting on Saturday, February 23.

Anyone interested in taking part should contact Noel O’Donnell or Darren Reade before February 20.
