A big well done to the Shamrocks U13 girls who beat Macroom in the semi final of the Mid Cork league this evening in Shanbally.

Shamrocks 4-2
Macroom 2-6
It was a hard fought game and the Shamrocks girls had to dig deep to pull this game back in their favour.
Down at half time the girls had a lot to do, but do it they did.

The second half was a different game when the Shamrocks girls started to build up a bit of confidence and began to put the passes together.

Hard fought tackles started to come into play and then all it took was a score or two and game on again.
In the end it was the last kick of the game that was the decider. With the girls one point down Shamrocks had to score with the last free kick of the game and score they did, in the back of the net. Winners by two points.

Well done girls, well deserved.


Roll on the final!

Great day had by all of the Shamrocks girls and boys today in the glorious sunshine in Shanbally at the Shamrocks Multi-Sports camp.

*************************************************************************************************************

 

Well done and hard luck to the our U12 girls who played Grenagh away this evening.
Big improvements were visible all round and great effort was put in by all of the 16 girls who played on the night.
Our defence once again played well and some good scores from our forwards left the Shamrocks girls only a point down at half time.

Grenagh then scored two soft goals in the second half which they build upon and from there on they pulled away.
Positives most definitely can be taken from the game and worked upon to strengthen and improve this team.

The Shamrocks girls were unlucky at times during the game and didn’t get the rub of the green tonight when numerous shots at goal were stopped on the line or narrowly went wide.
One or two scores early in the second half could of chanced the whole outcome of the game but it wasn’t to be on the night.

All girls must be commended on their efforts and most definitely everything was left on the pitch and all tanks were emptied with their performance.

Some great talent within the club and game after game improvements can be seen from all the girls!

The Shamrocks girls had a very strong first half leading at halftime but began to tire later in the game which allowed

Ballyphehane to gain more possession which they were able to convert into a few easy scores.

Overall it was a good performance by the Shamrocks girls with some good defending and good positive forward play.

NO Mouthguard? NO Game!

Reminder for all players and parents of players.
Texts will be sent out again to remind all players/parents about the below.

Officially from the LGFA

Ladies Gaelic Football Association Introduce Mouthguard Rule

From January 1st, 2014 it will become mandatory for all players in all age grades up to and including minor to wear mouthguards in all practice sessions and games. It will become the responsibility of each player to ensure that they are wearing mouthguards as failure to comply will result in the player being sent from the field until they satisfy the rules.

The new rule has been introduced to protect players from damage to their mouths and teeth which can have serious effects in their development. It is hoped, that with the introduction of the new rules, that the incidents of injuries to the mouth and teeth will be significantly reduced. If players do suffer an injury to the mouth or teeth they will not be covered for that injury as part of the LGFA Injury Fund.

Every player, regardless of the age grade that they play in, that is a minor or younger must wear the mouthguard when taking part in Ladies Gaelic football matches or training, this will include schools, colleges and when a player of minor grade or lower is playing for adult teams.

KEY POINTS
Ladies gaelic footballers in all age grades up to and including minor level must wear a mouthguard from January 1st 2014

It is the responsibility of each individual player to use a mouthguard

Players will be ordered off in a game for not wearing a mouthguard and will remain off the pitch until the situation is ratified

Players will not be covered under the Injury Fund if they don’t comply with the mouthguard rule.

Ladies U12 Mid Cork League

The Shamrocks U12 girls competed well last night against a strong physical Ballgarvan side in a well contested game in Shanbally. The Shamrocks girls played well overall and had very good spells of possession especially the latter part of the first half. The Ballygarvan girls were strong and racked up some fine scores but the Shamrocks girls responded well with some fine scores of their own and some great defending, chasing and overall play.

Goals were the difference and the decider on the night. Ballygarvan hit the net six times compared to our two although the Shamrocks girls had a higher score ratio, 12 scores to 11.(Shamrocks 2-10 to Ballygarvan 6-5).
Improvements are visible game after game and with continued efforts from all players this team still has the potential to do well in the league.

The next League game will be next Tuesday evening the 2nd of June at home to Carrigaline.
Lets continue our strong performances.
Well done girls!

U12 Ladies Mid Cork League

The U12 girls were very unlucky tonight as they were narrowly beaten in a close encounter by Nemo Rangers. The rub of the green did not go with the Shamrocks girls tonight whereby many scores were squandered and most definitely decisions did not go their way. There were many chances for the girls to level the game and in some cases go ahead but it was not to be for them on the night. The girls will have to pick themselves up from the disappointment of losing only by a point on the night, (Shamrocks 1-3, Nemo Rangers 1-4 ) and focus on their next league game scheduled for next Tuesday away to Ballygarvan.

It was also positive to see such a great player turnout which gave us a full twenty players on the night. Each player played their part and contributed to the team overall.
Well done girls.

U14 Ladies Mid Cork League

Well done to the U14 girls who had a tough encounter against Ballyphehane today in the Ladies Mid Cork League. The Shamrocks girls played well but the girls from Ballyphehane were just too strong. Although this was their last league game of the season there will be plenty of games organised for this team throughout the summer months.
Shamrocks ladies club would like to thank all the U14 players for their commitment throughout the league and a thanks to all the parents of the players for their support.
Shamrocks ladies club would also like to thank all the U14 coaches, mentors and committee members for their commitment to the girls over the last few months and their time organising matches, pitches, referees, training and everything else that goes with their roles.
Well done girls.

Shamrocks Ladies – U12 Mid Cork League

Firstly a huge thanks to all the players and parents for making the journey to Grenagh yesterday evening and bearing the elements in an evening of fierce wind and rain.
The Shamrocks U12 girls had a great win against Grenagh yesterday evening in their first league game of the season. There was a great player turnout and this made for a strong Shamrocks team who battled hard on the day in horrendous weather conditions to overcome Grenagh and win by seven points in the end. (Shamrocks 8.8 V Grenagh 7.4)
Again there was some outstanding play by the Shamrocks girls throughout the game and their determination and grit in poor weather conditions reaped the rewards coming home with the points from the game. Going forward the aim for each of the girls now will be to improve on yesterdays performance and help to ensure that they do well in the league. Again the great turnout of players shows that with a full strong team and panel of players, this U12 team can do well in the league.
Well done girls.

Shamrocks Ladies U12

The U12 girls had a good run out against our neighbours Ballygarvan in a well contested challenge game this evening in Shanbally. The Shamrocks ladies played well overall and were able to stay the pace with Ballygarvan, with some great defending and scoring alike, even with the fact that eight of the team are still in the U10 grade.

Again there was some great individual performances on the night but you could see that the whole team combined well and are improving with every game.
After saying that there is always room for improvements and the mentors will be putting each player through their paces at training to unsure that the girls will play to their full potential throughout the up and coming league.

The next league game will be roughly in a weeks time away to Grenagh, so ensure all girls are at training and preparing for the league.

Well done to the girls U14 team who played Carrigaline today in a well contested game in Shanbally. The Shamrocks girls had very good spells of possession and teamed up well to gain many scores throughout the game especially in the second half. Although the Shamrocks team was made up of many young players, it was the older girls that lead by example and showed the opposition what they were capable of, with great defending and scoring alike. Carrigaline were victorious in the end but a well done must be given to the whole team for their continuous efforts throughout the game.
Improvements are visible, game after game.
Well done girls.

The U14 Shamrocks Ladies had a tough encounter with Douglas this morning in Shanbally in their third league game of the season. Shamrocks had reduced numbers so the game started in a sporting manner with 11 aside. Douglas were strong and dominated the first half with some fine team play and strong scoring. The Shamrocks Ladies nevertheless came out in the second half and dug deep to give an excellent performance and show the potential that is within the team. There was some great individual performances but what showed greatly was the determination each player gave considering this is such a young and developing team. Well done to some of the younger players who stepped up to the plate and gave it their all. Douglas were triumphant in the end but the girls can come away from the game with confidence that with hard work from all the players, especially at training, this developing team can become successful in the future.
Maith Sibh Gach Duine.

Well done to the U14 girls who had a great run out in the Mid Cork league today against Macroom in very tough conditions. Although Shamrocks had a full team of 15 players, Macroom were only able to field 9 players so the game was played in a sporting manner with 9 aside. Macroom had a strong nine player squad and put it up to the Shamrocks girls. It was a tough game and much experience was gained. Although in the end Shamrocks lost the game we still gained the league points as Macroom could not field the required number of players.
Well done again girls.
Maith sibh, gach duine.

 

 

Under 14 Ladies

 

Our u14’s started their league campaign this morning losing to a very strong St. Michael’s team.  Unfortunately, we had to play without a full strength team, having to play some of our u12 team.  Shamrocks are a very young side developmental side.  The girls showed great heart and spirit throughout the game never dropping the heads.  Each girl played her heart out.

We continue next Sunday at home in Shanbally against Macroom.  Please show your support for this young side.
