Annaduff Club Notes – 13/8/17

W/E 13th August 2017

Senior Championship

Annaduff: 1-11(14)  GlencarManor: 1-13(16)

We continued our senior championship campaign in Drumshanbo on Saturday against GlencarMannorhamilton. Annaduff opened the scoring with two points from Sean McNabola but GlencarManor scored the next four without reply to put them 4 to 2 up on the quarter of an hour mark. Sean Mc continued to impress over the next ten minutes with a goal and two points to bring the sides level with half time approaching, another single exchange, ours from Alan Glancy saw the sides level at 1:5 a piece at the interval. The second half continued at the frantic pace of the first and Annaduff increased the variety of scorers, Alan, Frank, Eoin, Kenny and Sean Mc all registering. With normal time expired both sides were deadlocked at 1:11 each however GlencarManor put over two points in the 4 minutes of extra time to take the spoils.

Annaduff: Jim McCormack, Garry Bohan, Dean Gill, Dermot Reynolds  (Capt), Hugh Moylan, Aaron Duignan, Mattie Cox, Keith Duignan, Kenny Cox (0:1), Gavin O Brien, Eoin Gill (0:1), Conor Reynolds, Sean McNabola (1:6), Frank McNabola (0:1), Alan Glancy (0:2). Subs Used: James Cox, Matthew Reynolds.

Family Fun Day 2017:

The Clubs 4th annual fun day takes place in its usual slot on Sunday next, the 13th of August from 2pm to 6pm.  By now most people will be aware that in association with Tesco Carrick on Shannon, our charity partner this year is the North West Hospice.  We are greatly indebted to everyone who lends support to this day in so many ways, and what began as a family day has grown into a wonderful Community event for this and surrounding areas. Hopefully the weather will be kind and we look forward to seeing you all there.

Tickets for the fun day draw are on sale at the moment, and are available from any Club Official, Club Coach , or can be purchased at Tesco in Carrick-on-Shannon.   As people will know the prizes are well worth winning, and the draw will take place in Coxs Steakhouse on the night of the 13th of August.

New attractions;

Along with all of the old favourites, we welcome Coaches from the Leitrim Hurling Board to this year’s Fun Day.  They will be giving expert coaching to the children taking part in the Blitz’s, and hopefully will have a few treats to share with the kids.  Hurling is definitely growing in popularity in this area, and it’s great to see more and more  youngsters from Annaduff linking in with our neighbours in  St. Marys Hurling Club.

We are also grateful to Sgt. Ronan Mooney, for organising a Garda Display and advice stand at the fun day.  This stand will cover Road Safety, Crime Prevention advice, as well as many other Garda related  issues

Book Sale

Great response to the used book appeal and we are now in a position to sell off thousands of quality used books at the fun day, for rock bottom prices.  Remember next Saturday is the last day for donations,  and the Centre will be open from 10 am to 11.30 am  to accommodate same.
