Harps Notes 9th July 2017

posted 9 Jul 2017, 05:48 by Derrygonnelly Harps

Lotto results from July 9th will be in next week’s notes. We are in The Cosy this Sunday, with Pat McGurn, Michael Glynn and Mary Cox on duty.

Well done to our Harpettes who defeated Irvinestown tonight in their Championship Quarter Final on a 2-19 to 2-7 score line. A great all round team performance and a semi-final to look forward to!!

Our Juniors are at home to Kinawley this Wednesday evening at 8pm and our seniors are away to Irvinestown on Friday evening at 8pm.

The Harps Under 10s have been invited to participate in the Aodh Rua Ballyshannon annual Mick Shannon Memorial Blitz. Each participating club will have three teams playing, so we will be bringing approximately thirty boys and girls. The bus will be leaving the Casson at 9.30am, and we expect to be returning at 2.30pm.

With holidays etc, it is important that we are able to mobilise our full quota of players for this event, so it is important that we know who is coming. Please text either Brendy on 07968 330542 or Francis McKenna on 07766141886 to confirm that your child will be attending. It is important that you do this. As ever, our players are reminded to wear Harps gear and bring their gumshields.

As well as the Sunday Footy session, our Under 12 training for players from p6 upwards takes place on Thursday evenings now from 6.30 to 7.45. Please bring gumshields. The first Under 12 sectional match is scheduled for Saturday July 22nd.

Our Under 16 team will also have its first league match on Thursday July 20th away to Lisnaskea.

Good luck to everybody who has registered and now started their Couch to 5k journey towards the Churchill Ladies run on September 15thIf anyone is looking a baseline, they might consider the Botha to Kenya 5k, which takes place on a new flatter route from Killyhommon Primary School on July 15th at 4pm.   

Finally Harps members will be keeping an eye on the weather conditions next week as club stalwart Eamonn Greene embarks on a week-long adventure to live independently on an unoccupied island on Lower Lough Erne. He reckons the fishing will be great!
