Minor A action resumes!

posted 20 Jun 2014, 01:39 by Garret Byrne
Kinvara Minor A hurlers are back into the action after the break for the exams, with two matches in four days. These few days will be crucial, as we will have only one match to play after that (against the fancied Gort side) so we really need results from these matches against Kilnadeema-Leitrim (this eve) and Craughwell (Monday).

The squad had their first training session in 6 weeks during the week, due to the fact that most of the lads were previously exam-tied with Leaving Cert and Junior certs. It will really be a case of going into the unknown this evening, but one hopes the side can carry the form that saw them undefeated after their opening three matches. Some of the non-exam tied players have been busy in recent weeks with the Junior Bs and Cs, but we hope we not too rusty overall.

This evening's opponents Kilnadeema-Leitrim will also be viewing this as a must win game. They had a good win over Tommie Larkins, while were unlucky not to get something out of their Cashel game. They are always a tough opposition, especially when it comes to Minor A hurling.

Fixtures Friday 20th June:
Kinvara v Kilnadeema-Leitrim, in Gort 7pm
Gort v Craughwell
Liam Mellows v Castlegar

Fixtures Monday 23rd June:
Kinvara v Craughwell, in Kilbeacanty 7pm
