On Saturday last a number of our club players were involved with the Waterford Junior and Senior Football teams who took on Cork in Fraher Field. Firstly Gary Hurney was a selector on the Junior Football team where James O’Mahoney and Conor McCarthy were on the team. Laurance Hurney was a selector on the Senior team where Stephen Enright, Brian Looby and Michael O’Halloran were on the team that gave a wonderful performance , but unfortunately just came up short of recording a historic victory.
We ask that all team managers book their times for training/matches with Michael Donovan in advance of returning to training. Managers must notify Michael in advance if they wish to change from their allocated time.
Our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night with a jackpot of €1250
On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Margaret (Peggy)Burns, Tramore who passed away recently. Peggy’s son Johnny was a key member of our successful Senior Football teams in the 1970’s and 80’s, after which he gave many years coaching numerous underage teams to County Titles. Peggy’s grandsons featured on some of those teams and her great grandchildren continue to wear the club jersey today. Once again we send our sympathy to Johnny and all the Burns family on the death of Peggy.
