Carnew fu­ture looks bright

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - ACADEMY LAUNCH at Carnew Emmets GAA

CARNEW EMMETS in­vited Wex­ford hurl­ing star Lee Chin to do the hon­ours in of­fi­cially open­ing their new un­der­age academy at the club last week­end.

A crowd of al­most 100 chil­dren all wield­ing hurls and ready and will­ing to lis­ten to the Le­in­ster cham­pion turned up for the big day that or­gan­is­ers say was a roar­ing suc­cess and will hope­fully bear fruit in years to come on the GAA fields of Wick­low and be­yond.

‘Carnew Emmets Ju­ve­nile Club would like to thank Damien Os­borne and Cen­tra, spon­sors of hurl­ing hel­mets and slio­tars for our newly formed Academy. On Satur­day we had the launch of the Academy and we were joined in the sports­field by Wex­ford hurl­ing star Lee Chin.

‘Our guest of hon­our met with our fu­ture stars and he held a train­ing ses­sion with the Academy play­ers and then skills ses­sions with our var­i­ous teams and we fin­ished up with a num­ber of matches,’ said Carnew Emmets ju­ve­nile sec­re­tary Owen Ni­chol­son.

‘Sin­cere thanks to Cen­tra for fa­cil­i­tat­ing this event, to Lee for mak­ing the event such a suc­cess and to Damien Os­borne and his staff for their gen­eros­ity in pro­vid­ing re­fresh­ments for the play­ers on the day and to all who sup­ported the event and helped to make it such a suc­cess,’ he added en­thu­si­as­ti­cally.

Lee Chin was the spe­cial guest for the open­ing of the new un­der­age academy at Carnew Emmets GAA Club grounds last week­end.
