Burgess GAA Notes 8th August 2017

Senior Hurling:

We face Éire Óg Annacarty in our final group game of the county championship in Semple Stadium on Saturday August 12th at 17:30. All support is greatly appreciated for this vital game.

U14 Hurling:

Our U14s bowed out of the A hurling championship today over in Roscrea at the QF stage. The score line was comprehensive but the lads were really competitive despite this. We were level after 15 minutes and scoring regularly. However, we couldn’t keep the goals out and despite trying to the end, were well beaten. Roscrea had 15 players at the full age whereas we had 6 U12s. 

Huge gratitude to Donal and Dave for bringing the lads through and to Colm on the football. A grand bunch of lads with lots of ability. We need to make sure they stick at it.

U11 plate:

Our u11’s have been graded ‘B’ and will compete in a group with Kiladangan, Borrisokane, Newport and Lorrha. There are no fixtures made as of yet but the competition is due to commence on August 18th.

Junior A Hurling:

Our 17 man junior A team drew 1-16 all away to Kilruane last week. 

Minor Hurling:

Our minors came from nine points down away to Ballina last week to grab a one point victory. Well done to all.

Juvenile clothes collection:
