Arklow Geraldines Ballymoney club notes week June 19th

Arklow Geraldines Ballymoney

AGBs U10 girls travelled to Bray on Saturday morning in glorious sunshine to participate in a Blitz. The girls played brilliantly and really enjoyed the games. The U12 girls were in action against Baltinglass last Tuesday evening and although the Baltinglass side dominated the match, our AGB girls kept their focus and continued to battle on. Huge improvements can be seen with this promising young Arklow team. The U14 Girls also hosted a home game on Thursday evening and welcomed Kilcoole to Pearses Park. A tough game was played out, but the AGB girls did their best against a very strong team. The U14 girls are out in action at home in Pearses Park again this Thursday against St. Pats.  Best of luck to all the ladies teams in action this week.
The Junior Ladies will resume their league matches this Wednesday when they will face Kilcoole at home, in Pearses Park. Throw in is at 7pm. Best of luck to our ladies.
A Special Thank You to all who supported our Ladies collection on the doors of Super Valu last weekend. Thank you to Pettits’ Super Valu for the venue and to all from our ladies team who generously gave their time to collect.  
AGBs U11 Boys travel to Baltinglass on Wednesday evening to play them. The U7/U9 Boys will travel to Ballinakill on Saturday to play in a monster blitz.

Best of luck to our Juvenile teams in action this week.
