The Davin U-16 hurlers have reached the county final after first winning the South Final and then county semi-final in the past week.
The team comprehensively defeated Clerihan 3-14 to 0-6 in the South Final, which was played in Kilsheelan. This victory made it a South hurling and football title double for the team.
It took some time for the Davins players to settle down in the game but once they found their composure they took control.
While they wasted a few chances the scores did eventually come and the Davin side went into half time with a 1-9 to 0-4 lead.
The team performed better team in the second half. They had the lions share of possession and added a further 2-5 to their tally.
After the final whistle, Davins team captain, Raymond Cooke, accepted the South championship trophy and gave a speech worthy of an All-Ireland winning captain.
Five days after the South Final, the team beat Rosegrean in the county semi-final that was played in Cahir.
Although Rosegreen put in a good performance, the Davin team were just too strong and beat them by a very impressive 29 points. The final score was 6-16 to 2-5.
The team now await a date for the county final against Holycross/Ballycahill.
The team and the selectors have to be commended on reaching their second county final this year. They have already won the football county so it would be historic if they could land the hurling and football double.
Meanwhile, the Davin minors travelled to Clonmel last Sunday to play their football county semi-final. The Davin players were on the field for their warm up when they were notified that Fr Sheeys had failed to field a team.
While the team were disappointed not to play the game, they can now look forward to another county final.
This team also has a hurling county semi-final to play.
It is important that both these teams keep busy on the training field for the upcoming weeks.
The Club thanks its wonderful supporters for supporting these youth teams in their recent games.
It means so much to these young players to have this kind of support so the Club urges fans to keep up the support to the end.
U-16 and minor players will be notified by text of training times.
Football training for U-6s and U-8s will take place every Monday from 6pm to 7pm and hurling training for these age groups will be every Tuesday from 7pm to 8pm.
The club lotto jackpot wasn’t won last week. Numbers drawn were 15, 17,18, 23. There were four match 3 winners, who each received E50.
The Davin Club extend sympathy to the Walsh family of Clonea and Mothel on the death of Maurice (Mon) Walsh and to the Morrissey family of Collins Park on the death of Tommy.
Tommy was well know all over the town of Carrick-on-Suir and was one of the true gentlemen of his generation. It was always a pleasure to stop and speak with Tommy and he will be sadly missed by his many friends and family. May they rest in peace.
