After what was a very sat­is­fac­tory end to the sea­son where we won some and lost some the var­i­ous play­ers and teams now get ready to re­ceive their rewards. Well done to our un­der-10s team who re­ceived their award from the WDSL on Sun­day in the Grand Ho­tel. Well done to all the play­ers and es­pe­cially their coach Rory Hack­ett for all his hard work.

The un­der-11s and 12’s were meant to re­ceive their medals etc on Sun­day as well but ow­ing to the fan­tas­tic ex­ploits from the Boys in Green in France this event has been de­ferred till Tues­day, June 28, with the fol­low­ing slots for both teams: un­der-11s – 6.50 p.m. (Shield) and 7.05 p.m. (League); un­der-12s – 6.30 p.m. (Shield) and 7.05 p.m. (League)

Both teams and coaches must be at the Grand Ho­tel a min­i­mum of 10 min­utes be­fore their slot. Well done ev­ery­one. While the school­boy/girls teams may be fin­ished for a while the Se­nior Ladies are back in train­ing after the exam pe­riod and ready for a crack at the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion where the com­pe­ti­tion will be fierce. It is a tough task ahead of us but the min­i­mum we would hope for is to con­sol­i­date our po­si­tion in the league and to be as com­pet­i­tive as pos­si­ble.
