Burgess GAA Notes 18th May 2015

Senior Hurling:

Our disappointing run of results continued at the weekend when our senior hurlers tasted defeat for the third time this year against Kilruane. On this occasion it was in the north championship. We were without some of our regulars but still managed to give Kilruane a good game for the most part with Kilruane only pulling away late on. We have now been drawn against Portroe in the next round of this competition on Saturday 23rd of May in Nenagh at 7pm. The last time we met our near neighbours in this competition we managed to defeat them, against all odds with thirteen men and they went on to win the championship that year. I trust I can count on all of your support for our lads in this vital game.


U12 Football:

Our under twelves had a busy weekend firstly defeating a strong Moneygall side in the North final on Friday night last with a score line of 1-4 to 1-1. The boys showed enormous character to hold out against wave after wave of Moneygall attacks in the second half and then a quick turnaround to face Kilsheelan in the county semi-final on Sunday evening. Though our lads played their hearts out it wasn’t to be and Kilsheelan ran out 1-3 to 0-2 winners on the night. We wish them the very best of luck in the final as we turn our attention to the important business of the hurling championship. We would like to thank our players and mentors for their efforts and the honour that they have brought to the club.


Junior Hurling:

Our Junior hurlers face Kilruane in the league on Sunday the 24th of May at 12pm in Cloughjordan.


Minor Hurling:

The draw was made for the minor hurling championships during the week and despite the fact that we neither won North nor County honours with this team two years ago at u16B level we have been graded at A level this year. We have been drawn in a group 2 with Kilruane, Toome and Kildangan. The other group containing the other five teams: Roscrea, Newport Gaels, Nenagh Éire Óg, Borris-Ileigh and Portroe. We wish our lads the very best of luck in this competition
