Our Minor Hurlers recorded an excellent win over Sacred Heart last Tuesday night in Round 3 of the Minor Championship, on a scoreline of 4-09 to 1-14. Ferrybank made a good start to the game, with MJ Sutton scoring two goals in quick succession, but Sacred Heart came more into the game, and as the half wore on, Sacred Heart scored a goal just before half-time to lead by a point at the break. Sacred Heart began the second-half on top and extended the lead to six points, but credit to Ferrybank as they clawed their way back into the game with points from MJ Sutton and a Robbie Carew goal levelled the game up. Entering the closing minutes, and a point from MJ followed by an excellent solo goal sealed a good win for the team. Next up for the Minors is this coming Wednesday night August 20th home to Cappoquin at 7:15pm.

Congratulations to the Under 8 hurling coach Paul Sutton who married Susan Quilty during the week. We wish them well for the future.

Hard luck to Iona Heffernan and the Waterford Intermediate Camogie team who were narrowly defeated in the All Ireland semi-final by Limerick in Carlow last Saturday by a point. But best of luck to Roisin Oates and the Waterford Under 16 Camogie team who play Derry in the All Ireland Final in Leixlip next Sunday August 24th at 2pm.

Our Intermediate Hurlers will play St. Saviours in the Gerry Kennedy sponsored competition in Walsh Park this coming Saturday August 23rd at 3pm in Walsh Park. No doubt a stiff test awaits the test, so your support will be appreciated on the day.

Hard luck to the Under 13 Hurlers who were defeated by Sacred Heart in the Eastern Final in Walsh Park last Saturday on a scoreline of 0-07 to 0-04. Ferrybank had their chances and did everything but put the ball in the net and they paid the price as they conceded some soft frees and Sacred Heart duly converted all seven of them to run out winners in the end. Hard luck lads, but the future is bright for this talented bunch of players.

Ferrybank Junior Hurlers play Butlerstown in the quarter-finals of the Gerry Kennedy sponsored competition on Friday September 5th.

Ferrybank under 21 hurlers will play Portlaw in this year’s Championship in Ferrybank on October 20th. The winners are scheduled to take on Tramore in the semi-finals.

Ferrybank got their City League campaign underway against Na Gaeil last Friday night in Ferrybank. Both teams started well, with some well taken scores, and the game was level midway through the opening half. Ferrybank hit the front after that, with some good interplay resulting in some good scores. The second-half started evenly, though Na Gaeil began to get on top, but credit to the defence, as they quelled the Na Gaeil attack, which gave the midfielders and forwards the chance to add to the scoreline, and they ran out worthy winners in the end. Well done to all the players on the night.
