Kilcoo club notes – 9th April 2012
Saturday saw the annual Gary Cunningham tournament took place. There was some great football played by all the young teams involved in the competition. Clonduff and Attical contested the A final with Attical winning in an entertaining final.
The Seconds had a very convincing victory over Clonduff on Saturday evening to remain top of the league.
The U-8 and U-10 Camogs had their first outdoor blitz of the season in Castlewellan on Saturday.
It was a great day out for all the girls on both U-8 and U-10 teams played with great enthusiasm and passion together with a good demonstration of their camogie skills. Well done to the wee Camogs in both teams.
The Under 8 Girls were: Ellen Kelly, Ciara McEvoy, Kayley Grant, Olivia Rooney, Ceallach McEvoy, Ellie-Jo McCabe and Shanna Fettes.
The Under 10 girls were: Clionagh McConville, Eva McEvoy, Grainne McAneaney, Megan Rogan, Ciarrai Doherty, Kelly McEvoy and Sian Doherty.
Also Congratulations to the both our new referees from the Kilcoo Club, Maria Fulcher and Leon McCusker, who carried out their refereeing duties competently and with distinction. Well done girls, you have done your club proud.
A big thank you to all the Mums and Dads who came along to support and encourage their children on the day, keep it up!
All players should have membership paid and if not then must pay it or they won’t be allowed to play
