Enniscorthy Guardian - - SPORT -

THE FERNS St. Ai­dan’s club has won a dig­i­tal clock and score­board in a com­pe­ti­tion run by the G.A.A’s of­fi­cial tim­ing spon­sor, EirGrid. A win­ner from each prov­ince was drawn at Croke Park by EirGrid Ex­ter­nal Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager, Va­lerie Hedin, and the G.A.A. Pres­i­dent, John Ho­ran, who is in his first year at the helm of the As­so­ci­a­tion.

This fan­tas­tic prize com­prises the de­liv­ery and in­stal­la­tion of a top-of-the-range, LED, dig­i­tal clock and score­board with a ra­dio-con­trolled hand­set to man­age the score from any­where in the ground. This will be an in­valu­able as­set for the club.

There were a to­tal of 220 en­tries for the com­pe­ti­tion, in­clud­ing 80 from Le­in­ster.

‘We’re ab­so­lutely thrilled to win this fan­tas­tic prize,’ the Ferns St. Ai­dan’s Chair­man, Johnny Sin­nott, said.

‘It comes at a great time for the club, as we also near com­ple­tion of a ma­jor club­house ex­ten­sion and re­de­vel­op­ment, which will de­liver bet­ter fa­cil­i­ties than ever be­fore for all hurlers, foot­ballers, and camo­gie play­ers in Ferns.

‘A new score­board had also been on our wish list for a long time, so we’re over­joyed to re­ceive the news that we’ve been suc­cess­ful here, and we say a mas­sive thanks to EirGrid.

‘A word too about the winning photo. It shows the joy on the face of one of our young play­ers, Bill Moulds, af­ter he achieved the dream of scor­ing a goal in Croke Park.

‘We hope that many more play­ers from Ferns and Wex­ford go on to score many more goals there too!’
