Next Sunday afternoon at 4.45pm our senior men take on Mullaghbawn in the championship in Cullyhanna.
Our senior ladies are continuing to prepare for the final of the championship against Sarsfields on Sunday 28th August in the Athletic Grounds. The club is running a bus on the day for all supporters, especially for all our underage girls and boys teams, accompanied by adult mentors. The bus costs £5 per person and will leave from Shanes at 12.30pm. Seats can be booked through any underage team manager or by calling 07876453546.
Our minor boys took on a very good Clann Eireann side in the preliminary round of the championship last Monday night. Despite putting in a hard-working performance the Shanes were defeated by the better team on the night. Next up is a league game away to Killeavy on Monday night, 15th August and all players are asked to meet at the club no later than 6.30pm.
The U16 girls had a good league win last week over Crossmaglen. They return to action on Monday night, 15th August at home to Carrickcruppen at 7.00pm. All players are asked to meet at the club at 6.30pm.
Our U14 girls are looking forward to their championship final next Sunday afternoon, 21st August when they take on Granemore in Derrynoose at 5.00pm. Good luck girls from everyone at the club.
Our U12s travelled to Derrynoose last Wednesday night and put a great display of football to claim a fully deserved win. The U12s still have a number of games to play and tournaments to take part in and, with the holiday period almost over, all players are asked to ensure that they attend training every Tuesday and Friday evening at 6.00pm at the field.
Meabh O’Neill’s Camogie
The U12 camogs have been improving with every game they play and on Saturday they put in a number of brilliant performances to reach the semi-final of the An Ríocht tournament. This was the first inter-county tournament the young camogs took part in and they played some great camogie throughout – well done everyone.
Training for all camogs - U14, U12, U10 & U8 – continues at the pitch every Wednesday evening at 6.00pm and all new members age four and upwards welcome to attend. Any past or present camogie or hurling players who could spare one hour per week on a Wednesday evening to help coach some of our underage is asked to contact Sandra 075996440444 - your help would be greatly appreciated.
