St. Patrick’s club notes week August 7th

The lads eventually found their range and went in at half time ahead in a scoreline of  0-08 St Patrick’s Coolkenno 1-01.

St. Pats from the start had a massive team performance with excellent work rate and movement off the ball to record an excellent victory with the final score of  St. Pats 7-09 St Nicks 4-07

Hard luck to our Junior Hurlers who travelled to Ballinakill to take on Avondale in the Junior hurling league game on Wednesday and were on the wrong side of the full score of : Avondale 3-14 St Pat’s 3-07.

A massive well done to St. Pats U11 blue football team for a superb performance and result against a very strong An Tochar team on Wednesday Evening in Roundwood.

Our u7 Boys have earned the weekend off with hurling training on Tuesday and football on Thursday. In the winners enclosure for the coveted player of the week awards were Michael Delaney, Jack Dempsey, Rian Kavanagh and James Carroll – well done to all!

On Saturday our supporters gathered outside the gates of Joule Park, Aughrim as there were rumours that Avondale were unable to field a team in the Senior Hurling Championship. Unfortunately for Hurling in Wicklow we received a walkover in the Dacia Cars Senior Hurling Championship clash between St Patrick’s and Avondale. Referee Matty Dowling threw in the ball as required and Andy O’Brien scored the goal to make the walkover official. We await the decision of the CCC for confirmation.

On Sunday in Ashford at the early hour of 10.30am our Intermediate hurlers had a deserved victory over Bray Emmets with the full time score of 1-16 to 1-14.
