Parnells Club Notes14-07-2017


It’s ALL about the ABC!  On behalf of Parnells Youth, we would like to congratulate Provincial Council, the ABC organising committee, the CDA’s, the referees, all the volunteers and TCG for a fantastic event which has taken place over the last few days.  It is marvellous to see all the young teams from schools and clubs form different areas and counties come together to compete in a competitive but respectful environment.  Definitely, the true winner’s here are both the games of football and hurling.

 

Parnells had 12 boy’s teams and u12 girls playing from U8 to U18.  We know it takes a massive effort from the parents to get them there and the club is truly thankful to them as we are to all our coaches who advised, encouraged and looked after them throughout the day.  The highlights for the club started when many of our players with Salvatorian College won the Yr. 9 and 10 age groups.  Captain Eoghan Reilly accepted the trophy.  On the Saturday, one of our U12 teams won the Shield competition and then on Sunday, the U18’s won the Cup in a thrilling and nail biting final which went to extra time and saw a victory beating St Brendans 2-19 to 2-11.  Both teams had fantastic players and took their scores accurately under pressure.  Parnells dug deep in the second half of extra time and added vital points to secure the win, a great game.

 

A successful week for the Senior men as well.  Two wins, one in the League beating St Clarets and a brilliant semi-final game against TCG in the Conway Cup. Leading by two points at half time and securing a win by 2 points 1-16 to 2-11.  They will meet KKG in the final this Thursday in Ruislip.  Good luck lads.
