Junior A hurling:

Our juniors got themselves into the knockout phase of the north league after an absorbing dogfight in Newport at the weekend. We were up against it at half time after Newport made the most of home advantage and a stiff breeze to go in with a 1-11 to 0-8 lead. John O’Briens accuracy from placed balls was all that was keeping us in touch.

A string of bad wides early in the second half didn’t bode well but our troops but our lads upped the ante and a Ronan Tucker goal set the game up for an exciting finish. After a break in play for a nasty injury inflicted on David Seymour our boys rallied to the cause and lead for the first time in the game when it mattered most. Peter Gill was the hero with the winning score three minutes into injury time , Burgess 1-16 Newport 1-15.

Burgess gaa notes August 21st 2017

Senior Hurling:
Our senior hurlers await news on their relegation fixtures. With Kiladangan eliminated from the North at the weekend and after Carrick Swans win in the south the structure of the play off is still unknown and unknowable at this point. Keep an eye on the clubs social media for more information as it arises.
Dermot Hogan Memorial Tournament:


Despite heavy persistent rain a fine crowd of Burgess and Coolderry Gaels assembled in Kilcolman on Saturday last as the minor & senior hurlers of Burgess and Coolderry played out two enthralling exhibition games. In the first game the Coolderry minors proved too strong for a depleted Burgess side and ran out 3-15 to 2-12 winners. This game was remarkable for the quality of score taken by both sides despite the torrential rain. There are some team and action photos from the game on the club facebook page.

The senior game was a more low scoring affair as the underfoot conditions deteriated further . Coolderry took a 2 point lead in at half time leading 0-5 to 0-7 but Burgess cancelled that lead within about two minutes of the restart and lead for the majority of the half but a late rally and a goal by Coolderry saw them snatch the win with the final score reading Burgess 0-13 Coolderry 1-13.

Afterwards refreshments were served for players and supporters in the hall and the Hogan family presented commemorative trophies to the captains of all four teams.

We would like to wish our friends in Coolderry the best of luck in the KNOCKOUT PHASE OF THE Offaly county championship and thank them for making the trip down to visit us.

Match Report – Burgess v Newport north minor B championship

Final ScoreBurgess 1-17 Newport 0-07


Report – Pat Gibson 

The first half was close with Burgess always leading. Score at HT Burgess 0-08 Newport 0-05. A much improved second half performance from Burgess restricted Newport to two points both frees. Burgess were on top in all positions and their work rate and teamwork was top class with some well taken scores.
