Hi All. We will kick off the start of our Fundraising events for "2015" with our annual Clothes Collection. This money will go towards much needed training equipment. Bags can be dropped before or after training with your daughter. We would encourage every family to take part. The only items they won't take are Pillows, Duvets or Books. Everything else is suitable. The heavier the better.
Collections can be organised by contacting the club phone or speaking to a member of the coaching team. So let's get cracking. Thanks.
Thurles Sarsfields Camogie Notes - Week Ending March 7th:
Our Juniors had a very strong and promising start to the season with a good win over Toomevara in Toomevara. Our girls were 3 points up at the end of the first half with the wind against us. Toomevara didn’t pose too much of a threat and we stretched our lead in the second half with little response from the toome girls. We meet Cashel next Sunday at 3pm in the Sarsfields outside pitch at home. We ask for plenty of support for the team so come cheer them on. Holycross are next fixture and this game will be in the Sarsfield outside pitch also. Training is as normal, 6pm on Thursdays and 5.15pm on Saturdays. All players must attend as we have some big teams coming up and need all at training. New members are welcome.
A number of our club girls are members of the Tipperary minors and have had a fantastic start to the season also, winning the last two games they have played. We, as a club, wish Caitríona Skehan, Nicola Loughnane, Sara Stakelum and Karen Kennedy all the best in the future games with the county minors and also Leonard Philips with their training. Keep up the good work.
Training for all other age groups will be starting in the next week or two and members will be contacted by their trainers. Anyone else interested in joining the club at any age group or coming up for a look at training are more than welcome and can contact any club member or Liz Ely 087794323 after 4pm.
