Croydon Camogie Club Notes

Croydon lost the Junior semi-final in agonising fashion after losing to Tara in extra time on a score line of 1-5 to 5-4 on Saturday last in Greenford. Croydon led all through the game before Tara pegged back two goals in the second half to leave the full time score 1-5 to Tara's 2-2. The Croydon points came from Caoilinn Ni Neill and Kathy O'Regan with the point coming from Niamh Kehoe. Tara took control in extra time scoring 3-2 and holding Croydon scoreless. It was a great display by all the girls who put in a tremendous effort on the day.

The senior team bet Fr. Murphy's in the last group game of the championship winning on a scoreline of Croydon 3-10 Fr. Murphy's 1-7. They now go onto the semi-final where the play Fullen Gaels on Saturday next.

Parnells were able to field teams in all age groups. As usual this was a fantastic event that enabled the younger players to put their training in to practice. The Under 6 team under the watch of coaches Johnny Clarke and Colin McGuiness certainly gave it their all with many attempts at point scoring and lots of laughter. The Under 8s worked hard and showed that the seasons training is paying off, this age group are really finding their feet now and look to have a bright future ahead. Parnells put in 3 Under 10 teams and all 3 teams performed well. Team A reached the semi final of the Cup but were narrowly beaten by a strong St Kiernan's side who went on to beat TCG in the Final and took the winning title.

Teams B & C crossed each others path with a Parnells V Parnells final of the Shield, a sure win for Parnells youth and another trophy for the cabinet.
