With Covid restrictions easing later in the month, we will be holding the outstanding monthly draws for January, February and March and also holding our April draw for our confined members, date and time to be confirmed for our draws which will be live here on our Facebook page . Also, with the easing of restrictions, our underage teams are getting ready to return to training and all going well they will be training in our new ground in Suir Crescent in two weeks time.
So another 2 entries dropped tonight with Everton failing to win. That leaves 15 going through to Week 8 in the race for €500. There will be a couple of weeks break until the next full round of fixtures due to FA Cup Semi Finals and the League Cup final. Fixtures will be sent out in due course. Best of luck to all remaining entries.
After Saturday and Sundays games we lost 7 more entries due to Man City and Burnley failing to win. 12 entries breathed a sigh of relief this evening as Arsenal won and that makes it 15 through to Week 8 while 2 are waiting on Everton away to Brighton tomorrow evening.
24 entries head in to Week 7 and the panic has set in as 12 of them have plumped for Arsenal away to Sheffield Utd on Sunday evening. 6 have gone with Man City at home to Leeds in the early kick off tomorrow. 2 have backed Liverpool and 2 are hoping Everton can win away to Brighton on Monday night. We also have one each on Chelsea and Burnley. A wide range of picks as we expected with a lot of so called big guns used by all already. Expect a few fallers again in the race for the €500 prize. Best of luck to all 24 remaining entries.
Another 6 bite the dust thanks to the ever consistent Everton not holding on to a lead. West Ham did hold on to send another 2 through to round 7. 24 head into Week 7 with a difficult weekend of fixtures ahead. Best of luck to all remaining entries.
We added a second sign recently to Suir Crescent acknowledging Kilkenny County Council’s contribution towards the development. In 2019, we were awarded €30000 by the Council towards security fencing and hedging. With the fencing and planting of hedging completed it has added a real structure to the boundary of the ground. That brings the contribution in grants towards the development to €105,000 to date and without these grants some of the work completed so far would not have been possible. To all that contributed towards the successful applications, a big thank you.
Birthday boy Robbie Tebay who turned 7 today will have the last laugh in Kilmovee this week as a late Newcastle equaliser sent his father Derek Tebay out of the running for the €500 prize. Substitutions in the Aston Villa game saw Eoin Dunphy progress and 2 punters were happy Man Utd done their usual in scraping a late win. We have 6 on Everton and 2 on West Ham tomorrow evening. Also, we lost 10 on Chelsea yesterday and not 9 as previously stated, so 22 are through to Week 7 so far with fixtures starting next Friday evening.
West Brom and ultimately Thiago Silva’s red card cost 9 entries their place next week, at least Ger Nolan will be happy. 19 are through thanks to Leeds winning and young Robbie Tebay is also through thanks to his faith in Liverpool to make it 20 through so far. Tomorrow Aston Villa, Spurs and Man Utd carry the hopes of 4 more entries.
The lunchtime kick off of Chelsea v West Brom will carry the hopes of 8 entries while 18 are banking on Leeds to win. The rest are on Liverpool (1), West Ham (2), Man Utd (2), Aston Villa (1), Everton (4) and Spurs (1). 4 entries are still waiting until the last minute to hedge their bets.
