Burgess GAA Notes 31st August 2015

Junior A Hurling:

Lee Howard and Johnny Ryan in Action against Knockshe

Our interest in the North Junior A championship ended on Saturday last in a thrilling extra time defeat to Knockshegowna in Cloughjordan. A goal in the eightieth minute secured a North final berth for Knockshe in a thrilling game where the very least Burgess deserved was a draw.

We would like to thank the hurlers and their management team for their efforts this year and a special mention to Garrett and Lee Howard who despite a family wedding at the weekend were outstanding for Burgess on Saturday.

We wish Knockshegowna the very best of luck, whoever their opposition, in the North final. I’m sure Saturday’s game will stand to them.
