Com­pet­i­tive fare for un­der-14s in Meath Blitz

Bray People - - SPORT -

IT’S been a busy week for camo­gie in the county fol­low­ing our glo­ri­ous win in the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship.

The next gen­er­a­tion, our U-14 De­vel­op­ment Squad, played in the Kil­dare U-14 De­vel­op­ment Blitz on Bank Hol­i­day Monday, June 6.

Un­for­tu­nately, they only got one match in be­fore thun­der and light­en­ing called a halt to pro­ceed­ings.

They had more luck in the Meath Blitz in Trim last Sun­day, play­ing very com­pet­i­tive games against Kil­dare, Cork and Antrim. They now have a two-week break and re­sume train­ing on Thurs­day, June 30, in Bal­li­nakill from 6.45pm to 8.15pm.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Katie Tyrell (Donard-Glen) who rep­re­sented Wick­low in the All Ire­land Skills Fi­nals in Ab­bot­stown on Saturday. And well done to Chloe Byrne (Kil­coole) and Emma Byrne (Avon­dale) who rep­re­sented Wick­low at the In­au­gu­ral Le­in­ster Skills Stars Fi­nal held in the Kilkenny GAA Train­ing Cen­tre on Sun­day.

At a club level, the Adult Sum­mer Sizzlers proved a great suc­cess last year. Th­ese are small sided games (no more than nine play­ers), with clubs match­ing num­bers. Last week, Donard-Glen hosted and this week (Tues, June 14), Éire Óg Grey­stones played host to Kil­coole, Donard-Glen, and Bal­li­na­cor. Down south, Carnew Em­mets hosted Ark­low, Knock­ananna, Kil­te­gan and An­nacurra.

At the other end of the scale, tonight (Wed­nes­day) the U-8s and U-10s par­tic­i­pate in an All County Go Games Blitz in the GAA Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence, Bal­li­nakill, so there will be great ex­cite­ment at that! The U-12 League con­tin­ues apace with matches sched­uled to run each Fri­day night un­til July 29.

The U-14 League had games on Monday night af­ter a break for the June Bank Hol­i­day, with Aughrim/Bal­li­na­cor lin­ing out against Bray Em­mets, Avon­dale v Eire Og Grey­stones, and Kil­te­gan v Knock­ananna. The U-16s are on an exam break and the small-sided Sum­mer Siz­zler cam­paign will kick off on Wed­nes­day, 6 July and run each week un­til July 27.
