Civil Service Hurling Club Newsletter 22 October 2013

There was some consolation when our final AHL6 fixture for 2013 produced a victory against our near neighbours Liffey Gaels on a bright mild Sunday morning in Islandbridge. The signs weren’t good with a team of 13, no subs and our man with the jerseys arrived with just a minute to throw in. Before we knew it we were four points behind after 10 minutes. However, we settled down, marked tighter and were just a point behind at half time. We clearly got the benefit of some words of wisdom from Liam Myles and Frank Martin on the sideline and dominated play from the 2nd half throw in. After a fine long range point for Conor McCarthy, the scores came quickly from some effective passing between Mark Feeney, Ger Hawkins and Conor Bracken. The visitors came looking for goals but the defence kept a clean sheet with a final score of 2-14 to 0-9. A good way to end the year and a good platform to build on for 2014. Still a cup final to be played but the date is not yet set.

Training as usual this week on Wednesday. Mella’s rip and spin classes are available in the gym to club members for those planning their winter training.
