Clonmel Commercials under 12 Girls played Newcastle in their third league game last Wednesday night in the Poppy Field and were comprehensive winners on a score line of 9-07 to 2-02.
They have now qualified for the semi-final of the championship and are due to play Fethard on Monday 17th June in the Sportsfield at 7.15. Best of luck in their endeavours to reach the south final.
There was double disappointment for the under 12’s last week in the South semi finals in Ballylooby. Our “A” team went down to a very good performance from Ardfinnan. Playing against a stiff breeze in the opening half Ardfinnan led by 6 points at the break. Try as they did in the second half, Commercials could never get close enough to threaten Ardfinnan.
In the “C” semi-final, our team which was made up of some very young players was gallant in defeat. They gave a great account of themselves and were unlucky in defeat. Well done to both teams on a year of progress in the development of these players. Our thanks go to Fergal Condon and Philly Ryan, who have worked very hard with these teams.
The U 8 boys have been invited to take part in the Danagher Cup competition in Fethard on Saturday 22nd June as part of the Coolmore Gathering 2013.
