Ferrybank GAA - Weekly Notes

The Junior camogie Premium Butcher Championship Final will take place Saturday 24th October at 4pm in Walsh Park. Ferrybank will play De La Salle in the final. Please come along and support the girls.
Many thanks to Brian Flynn of Flynn’s Bar and Off Licence Ferrybank who presented our Junior camogie team with a set of jerseys for the championship.

Ferrybank played their final game in the Under 11 City League football when John Mitchell’s visited the grounds on Sunday morning. Ferrybank hit the ground running from the start with goals from Daniel Griffin and Jamie, with the two Shane's quickly developed the lead with further goals, and at this point, there was no way back for the Mitchell’s. Odhran and Izaak controlled the centre of midfield, and supplied the ball to Jake and Ruaidhri who scored another four points. John Mitchell’s did mount some creditable attacks, which forced defenders Sean Heff, Sean Fagan, Conor Daly and Adam Aspel to make some frantic blocks. The full forward line of Mattie and Fionn continued to rattle the opposition goal. This was a well-deserved victory and fitting, as we won our first and last games of the campaign.
Well done lads, and thanks to John Mitchell’s for the manner in which they played.
TEAM: Shane Egan, Izaak Richards, Shane Purcell, Mati Tomczuk, Daniel Griffin, Sean Heffernan, Ruaidhri McGarrity, Odhran Power, Jake Butler, Jamie Sutton, Adam Aspel, Conor Daly, Fionn McGarrity.
