Report Week Ending 14th November 2010

A bright crisp November Sunday was the backdrop for this week’s on field activity.


At 11.00 am the under 14B’s had Naomh Olaf’s as visitors to Pairc de Burca in their final Division 3 tie.  The Sandyford boys had slightly the better of the first period and went in for tea 2-5 to 2-2 to the good.  A highly entertaining and competitive second half saw the lead changed hands on a number of occasions before Olafs took the points by a goal.  Overall Crokes finished in fifth position with a very creditable 11 points from 14 games. 

In their first group game of the inaugural Leinster GAA “3G” Tournament at Bray Emmets' all-weather pitch the under 16’s faced Celbridge.  The concession of an early goal was a setback.  Crokes then outscored their opponents by five points to one.  For a period it was nip and tuck before the Kildare lads forged ahead again to hold a 2-6 to 1-5 interval advantage.  A much improved second half display, during which some great points were taken, provided the platform for a 3-13 to 3-11 win against the impressive and skilful Kildare 2010 championship winners, who were left to rue some late missed opportunities.  In a game where unlimited substitution was allowed Crokes got stellar performances from Eamonn Allen, Louis O’Sullivan, Conor O’Dwyer, Matthew Geraghty, Odhran O’Siochru and the inside line of Ross McGowan, Barry Horan and Neil Gorey.




E Allen, L O’Sullivan, J Murphy, A Colclough, C Gormley, C Devins (0-2), C MacGabhann, R Murphy, C O’Dwyer (0-1), T Barry, M Geraghty (1-2), O O’Siochru (0-1), R McGowan (0-2), B Horan (1-1), N Gorey (0-2), C Conway (1-2, pen – goal, f-1), M O’Dwyer, E Campion and C McIntyre.

A meeting for parents of new boys who have recently started at the Kilmacud Crokes Hurling Nursery was held in Glenalbyn on Tuesday September 28th.  At the meeting Hurling Coach Niall Corcoran outlined the coaching aims that we are trying to achieve within the nursery as well as outlining how the hurling nursery is structured.  We got a good response from parents that were willing to help out in the nursery, which is crucial to the success of the nursery. 


We would encourage anybody who is interested in giving a hand out at the nursery to make him or herself known to Niall or the head coach organising a particular skills station on the morning. 


When parents and children arrive in the morning, Marion will be taking the registration for both the 2005 & 2004 groups.  If anybody is in a position to help with registration please make yourself known to Marion at the start of the session.
