St Molleran’s Intermediate hurling team’s hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the championship were dashed last week after defeats to Portlaw and Ballygunner respectively.
The team have only one game left against Clonea. No matter what the result is of this match, the team hasn’t any hope of progressing to the quarter finals.
Instead, they will be invloved in a relegation battle later in the year.
Everything possible must now be done to ensure the Club maintiins its Intermediate status, and it’s dissapointing to have exited the championship at such an early stage.
The team need to continue training to avoid ending up in the Junior hurling championship next year.
Anyone interested in purchasing St Molleran’s Club gear can do so by contacting Sinead Dunne.
Sinead will be at the clubhouse before adult and juvenile training sessions to take orders and payments.
Due to supplier restrictions this year, the Club will not be able to order seperate items. All orders will be taken on a monthly basis.
Any St Molleran’s club member looking for tickets for the Munster Final should contact Emily Comerford as soon as possible.
Juveniles: St Molleran’s U-12 hurlers remain unbeaten in the City League with a victory over Ballyduff last Friday. This was a highly entertaining game with both teams showing great skill and battling qualities. The final game in the competition is against Killrossanty on Friday night. The U-11 hurlers continued their impressive run of form with a well deserved victory over Ballyduff recently.
The team has greatly improved this year and their performances to date have won them many admirers throughout the county.
The U-10 hurlers participated in a well organised blitz in Newtown. They played three games against St Mary’s, Roanmore and Butlerstown and performed very well in all games.
Meanwhile, the U-9 hurlers particapated in a four-team blitz in Kill. Once again the team showed great potential and performed well against St Mary’s, De La Salle and Butlerstown.
Training for U-13 hurlers begins this week. All players are requested to make themselves available for selection by turning up for training . The championship is due to start on Saturday, July 2. No player will be considered for selection on match days unless they attend training regularly.
Application forms for St Molleran’s Cul Camp, which takes place from August 22 to 26, can be obtained from Willie Foley.
