ABP sponsored Ferrybank GAA Weekly Notes

It’s City League action this coming Friday night May 16th, where the Under 11 hurlers travel to play near neighbours Kilmacow at 6:30pm.

Our Under 16 Footballers qualified for the Division 4 final with a thrilling 3-07 to 0-13 win over Clashmore/Kinsalebeg last Wednesday night in Clonea. Trailing by four points at the break, the lads were just seconds away in normal time from winning when they conceded a free that resulted in the game going to extra-time.
However, the team fought for one another and got there reward at the end of the game. They now go on to play Mount Sion in the final on Sunday May 20th in Walsh Park, where the time has yet to be confirmed. Best of luck to Tommy, MJ and the team.

Our Under 9 hurlers are in action on Saturday May 19th at 11:30am, where the ‘White team play away to Roanmore, while the ‘Green side also play away to Stradbally.

Ferrybank’s opening game in the Junior Hurling Championship, away to Dunhill last Friday night, was postponed due to an unplayable pitch.

Not too long to go folks for the Super Déise Draw which takes place on Wednesday May 30th, and like last year, there will be six draws over the six months.
