U16 and Minor Ladies
The U16 and Minor girls ended their season off fearlessly with a trip on the Ghost Train in Glenart on Wednesday 29th October 2014! To get their strength up for the big event the girls went to the Asian Harvest Restaurant. After dinner the U16 player of the Year was announced by team manager James Furlong and the trophy was awarded to Kayleigh Earls. The group then assembled at Glenart for the Ghost Train Ride. This was a superbly organised event which everyone enjoyed and after a considerable amount of screaming, abductions and supernatural attacks, all were laughing again by the time they exited the gates of Glenart Castle. Well done to Orla and Jennifer for organising the event and managing to get everyone home alive at the end of it!
Many of these girls will be attending the Adult Ladies Presentation Night on November 8th in the Harbour Bar as they supported both the Junior and Senior Panels this season. The Minor Player of the Year will be announced at the adult presentation along with the Junior and Senior Recipients.
