ABP sponsored Ferrybank GAA Weekly Notes

Ferrybank's Minor hurlers have teamed up with Erin's Own for this year's championship. The combined side will play in Division 2 Group A, along with Roanmore, Passage, St. Molleran's and Tramore. The first game is scheduled to take place on Wednesday July 19th at 7:30pm against Tramore.

Our Under 8 hurlers made the trip to play Ballygunner last Monday night. The lads were up against a strong Ballygunner side but the team gave it their all on the field, and despite losing three out of the four games, the boys fought with credit, and well done to all.
PANEL: Luke O' Connor, Max, Ciara, Aoife, Luke Geraghty, Emily, Gavin, Finn, Aidan, Zach, Michael, Conor, Mikolaj, Harry.

Our Under 14 hurlers are in action this coming Monday night July 10th away to St. Mary's at 7pm.

Ferrybank's Under 16 hurlers made the trip to play Clonea in their second game, and the lads dug deep to claim a share of the spoils on a score-line of 1-7 to 0-10. This was a hard fought game, and despite missing a couple of players, this was a good point to pick up. Next up is a home game on Friday 21st July against An Gaeltacht.

Our Junior Footballers made the trip to Poleberry last Friday night to play Erin's Own in their latest John J Murphy sponsored competition. Following a feast of scores, Erin's Own came out winners on a score-line of 6-05 to 3-11. Some soft goals cost the team dearly. In the second-half Ferrybank battled and just as they got back into the game, they gifted the homeside easy goals which they took. Next up is a home match v Mount Sion on Friday 28th July.

Well done to Mark O' Brien and the Waterford Senior hurlers on their fantastic win over Kilkenny last Saturday evening; while it was hard luck to Valerie O' Brien, Niamh Ahearne and Iona Heffernan who were part of the Waterford Senior Camogie side that were defeated by Dublin last Saturday afternoon.

Our Junior hurlers will play their third game in the John J Murphy sponsored competition this coming Saturday July 15th at 1pm in Ferrybank against table toppers St. Paul's. Having recorded a good win in their last game, let’s hope the lads can keep up the good work.
