Cavan Gaels Hurling Club:
Providing Hurling for children from the Bailieborough, Kingscourt,
Killinkere, Knockbride and Shercock areas since 2009.
Busy week for all and summer arrives for hurling as the clocks
change at last...........
Under 8/10; The lads had another great days hurling in Carrick
at the blitz. We had 2 under 10 and one under 8 teams this week
and they all played really well winning most of their games. You
can really see a lot of improvement with these lads from the amount
of games they are getting. The last round of Carrick blitzes is
next Saturday in the Phoenix Centre, we then move on to the first
round of Cavan blitzes. 27 weeks of indoor hurling will then be
over! Training moves outdoors at last to St. Anne's Park, the
home of Bailieborough Shamrocks CLG from this coming Wednesday
from 7.30-8.30. New players are very welcome.
Our under 12s got the league under way on Tuesday with the visit
of Cootehill Celtic to Kingscourt to play under lights. In a game
ECG dominated for the most part, two late Cootehill goals let
the visitors escape with the points on a scoreline of ECG 3-00
Cootehill 3-02. The lads made up for this on Friday night when
they visited Ballinagh to play St Felims. A dominant display saw
ECG run out comfortable winners. The next rounds of the league
are the first week of April.
Kingscourt;Special thanks to Pat Faulkner and all at Kingscourt
Stars for making their pitch with floodlights available for hurling
this week. The Stars under 10 football squad will have hurling
introduced alongside their football sessions on Thursdays from
early April with a stand alone hurling session for under 8 and
10, if there is sufficient demand, coming in early May.
Bailieborough;We are delighted to announce that hurling makes
a very welcome return to Bailieborough CLG when East Cavan Gaels
transfer all their training groups to St. Anne's park over the
coming weeks starting with our under 8s/10s this coming Wednesday
28th March from 7.30-8.30pm. All our training for all of our teams
will be on Wednesdays for the summer season.
This, we hope, will be a very significant move as Bailieborough
is the central point in the whole ECG Hurling catchment area.
Players from all 5 local GAA clubs, Killinkere, Shercock, Knockbride,
Kingscourt and Bailieborough areas are very welcome to attend
and we look forward to significantly increasing our membership
this year. We would hope that all local CLG clubs would keep Wednesdays
free from football activity from under 14 down to under 8 in order
to help hurling prosper. Fixtures from the Youth Board ensures
there will be no clash of hurling and football fixtures this year
so there is ample opportunity for all children attached to football
clubs to try hurling on Wednesdays.
We would like to sincerely thank our friends at Killinkere CLG,
Bailieborough Celtic AFC and the Community School, Bailieborough
for the use of their pitches and facilities over the last 3 years.
