JAFC v Ballinhassig 20/7/2018

JAFC v Ballinhassig 20/7/2018.
 Shamrocks 0 – 12        Ballinhassig     1 – 7
This Junior A Football championship tie, played at Ballygarvan, was most competitive and some excellent points recorded in the opening half gave Shamrocks a sound base from which to move forward in the game.  Ballinhassig put in a big push before half time to see two points between the teams Shamrocks 0 – 8 Ballinhassig 0 – 6.
The second half was a tough and demanding period with Ballinhassig bringing out the best in our backline.  Some four excellent points were well deserved and a Ballinhassig penalty goal give them sustenance.  However the lads in green had the wherewithal and the bottle not to concede any more scores before the final whistle.
Team Manager Michael Kidney was quick to acknowledge the team spirit and the will to win.
Well done to al our gallant players and thanks for a thrilling championship win.

U10 HL V Brian Dillons – 28/6


The U10s had there final game before the summer break against Brian Dillons in Shanbally this evening. On a very hot evening and with some players already gone on holidays we had 12 players togged out. After a slow start Shamrocks settled into the game and once our first goal went in we pushed on and the game was never in doubt. A great performance by all and great to see all players getting the full 50 minutes. We had a very impressive first half to the season winning all football games and losing only 2 hurling games that could have went our way just as easy. We look forward to the 2nd half of the season.

U10 FL V Lee Gaels – 23/6


As the first half of our under 10 season draws to a close with only one match remaining, Shamrocks played Lee Gaes on what was a beautiful Saturday morning. Holidays and the good weather took its toll leaving us  with  he minimum panel of nine players. The Dripsy pitch beside the Lee was in great condition and Shamrocks once again put on a fantastic display of football  eading to another comprehensive victory. Great credit is due to all nine players who put in a great effort for the whole game playing some gifted football and scoring many goals despite the scorching temperatures. Again well done to all.



Our next match is hurling against Brian Dillons. Time and venue to be announced.

The U10 action this Wednesday evening saw Courcey Rovers making the long journey to Shanbally  on what was a beautiful summers evening. Shamrocks took to the pitch with a full panel and while they were slow to get into their stride it wasn’t long before the scores began to come. Two solid halves of hurling including the whole panel ensured a comprehensive victory for the home side. Again well done to all. Next game playing Lee Gaels away on Saturday morning.
