GAA | Club Round-Up
Knockbridge, St Joseph’s, Clan na Gael, Dundalk Gaels, St Patrick’s, Dowdallshill
Training continues for U18-U12 players this Friday in the Bride’s field at 5.30pm. New members are very welcome to come along on the evening.
The club’s U14 side, together with Pearse Og, played their first game in the Feile competition against the amalgamated Mattock/St Kevins/Glen Emmets team in DkIT last Tuesday night. After a close first half, Knockbridge faded in the second, losing 5–10 to 2–3. With more games and training this team has the potential to vastly improve on that scoreline. Next up is Naomh Moninne in the second round of the competition. It takes place this Tuesday at 6.45pm in the Fairgreen.
Elsewhere, the club’s junior hurlers made it three wins from three games with a comfortable 3–14 to 0–6 victory over Naomh Moninne in the Junior League. The most pleasing aspect was the fact that Knockbridge’s starting 15 contained only four starters from last year’s county final as well as five hurlers from last year’s minor team. This competition for places can only be good as the team tries to atone for last season’s disappointing finish. The final league game takes place against Pearse Og in two weeks time.
The club’s U8 squad started their season in Cluskey Park at the weekend under their new coaching team of Anthony Keenan and Caitriona McKeown. The team played matches against Hunterstown Rovers and St Bride’s in a well organised and smoothly run blitz.
