Club A.G.M.The club held it’s Annual General Meeting on Sunday last in the centre and as usual it was very well attended from the youngest to the oldest members showing great interest in the various reports and motions, best wishes to Owen Sauvage, Kevin Ryan and Paul Fanning who are stepping down from their executive positions after many years of invaluable work for the club, there’s no change in the management of the Adult teams with John Meaney taking over the helm with the Minors, Stephen O Neill is new Senior captain and he will be ably assisted by Pat Kelly in the Vice Captain position. Player of the Year awards were also presented on the day and they were as follows,
Senior – Martin F O Neill
Intermediate – Cian O Regan
Junior – Brian “Ned” Power
Young Player – Mikey Daykin
Footballer – Craig SauvageWell done to all involved and best of luck to our new Secretary Benny Brannigan and Vice Chairman Seamie Cleere and also to Paul Galgey who as well as taking on the Football managers role was also voted onto the Executive .
Juvenile PresentationIt was a most enjoyable occasion on Saturday last as our Juvenile club up to Under 12 held their Award ceremony, it was great to see such a turnout from both players and their parents as the boys and girls received their medals from all the various tournaments over the year, well done to Jamie Meaney and Cian Purcell who were the Under 11 and 12 Players of the Year respectively, there were also plaques on the day for our Under 12 players who took part in the Waterford Development panels during the year, thanks to our Senior players who took the time out to come up and give out medals on the day also.
Christmas Raffle and Club DrawBy now everyone will have received their tickets for the Christmas Raffle which takes place on 20th December in the club and we would hope they’ll all come back sold ! On the night also the club will be running a draw for Deise Draw members with guaranteed Mount Sion winners. Entry is ten euro with half of the amount collected going back in prize money. If you’ve paid in full for nine Deise Draws you’ll be automatically put into this draw. Those who are members of the Deise Draw for four draws or more can purchase a ticket for this draw. Thanks to all those who supported the fundraiser during the year and to Josie for all her hard work organising it for us.
New Year’s Eve Gala NightThe New Year’s Gala night is fast approaching and if you have booked tickets please could you make sure they’re paid for by the 16th December, any enquiries about the night can be made behind the bar.
Last Man StandingThere’s no separating the last four players in this year’s Last Man Standing and at this rate we could run out of teams soon.Check out the updated table on the website and don’t forget to have your team into Tina before Thursday.
Get Well SoonGet Well Soon to Paul Meaney who is laid low at the moment, Paul is well known in the club and coaches some of our younger players who send all their best wishes.
