AUGHRIM

Bray People - - Sport -

Aughrim foot­ballers had a good turnout at their first train­ing ses­sion on Satur­day last. Train­ing will con­tinue on Tues­day night at 7.45 p.m. The Dawn Lacey tour­na­ment semi-fi­nals will be held over this com­ing week­end, with Aughrim play­ing An­nacurra in An­nacurra un­der lights at 7.30 p.m. on Fri­day night. Ballymanus will play host to Avon­dale on Satur­day at 2 p.m. in Askana­gap in the sec­ond semi-fi­nal.

The Aughrim home pitch in the Com­mu­nity Field is un­der­go­ing a change at the mo­ment, with the play­ing field be­ing moved for­ward be­cause of the prox­im­ity of the new Com­mu­nity Sports Com­plex. This has pre­sented the op­por­tu­nity to paint the goal­posts, to re­mark the field and also to change the align­ment of the pitch. Plans are also un­der way to erect a new ball bar­rier at the Redna end. The play­ing con­di­tions are very wet at the mo­ment and the pitch should benifit from the short rest. Fol­low­ing a re­cent meet­ing of the ju­ve­nile sec­tion within the club, an aware­ness meet­ing will be held on Satur­day, 19th Fe­bru­ary with the in­ten­tion of meet­ing par­ents and or­gan­is­ing ju­ve­nile regis­tra­tion. It has been de­cided to hold a Pre­sen­ta­tion Func­tion in March to present their medals to the Ju­nior cham­pi­onship winning hurl­ing team.

At the re­cent Club Com­mit­tee meet­ing a vote of sym­pa­thy was passed with the fam­i­lies of Reg Hunt, Gda. Gerry Fi­nan, Bren­dan Cor­bett, Mrs.Traynor and Sonny Holt, all of whom died re­cently.
