Players and Coaches on Gaynor Cup duty

Big well done to all our players and coaches who were on Gaynor Cup duty against North Tipperary at U12 and U14 level last weekend. Hannah Dobbyn was on duty with the u12s up in Birdhill while Molly Murphy,

Áine Connery and Stephanie Phelan were on U14 duty in the Villa along with club coaches Dee Travers, Richard Long and Derek Tebay.

U10 Girls Sporting new Jerseys

The last team of 21 in the club to be kitted out was our second u10 girls team who thankfully had a kind man in the form of Liam Dunne of Klearcom step up and put his name forward to have our girls looking great on match days.

Incredible generosity from Liam, our coaches and girls are extremely grateful. Pictured in the new strip are some of our future stars along with coaches Caroline O’Mahony, PJ O’Leary and Mags Cronin.

Coaches earn their FAI badge

Big thanks to Will Kinsella, FAI Development Officer for Kilkenny, for overseeing the PDP 1 course held in the last week in Suir Crescent.

Well done to the 16 coaches who completed their first coaching course and they will look to put it to good use with our younger kids.

We plan to hold another PDP 1 and PDP 2 in the coming weeks and months.

Fun for all

At our new grounds yesterday, we had a little mix and match of our youngest girls group teaming up with our Senior Ladies group for a short ball work session and plenty fun was had by all involved with our young u10s showing off their skills and impressing our older girls.

These young 8 and 9 year olds girls are the future stars of our female section and will be a driving force in years to come.

Fixtures for the Weekend

Best of luck to two of our teams who get their 2022-23 Junior League season underway this evening.

Our 3rd division side face Piltown at 6.45 in Suir Crescent while our Youths travel for an away fixture to Ballyduff with a 6.45 kick off again.

Support for both teams would be very much appreciated.
