Weekly Update from Cork Ladies Football

Weekly Update from Cork Ladies Football – February 8th 2010.

Cork Senior V Dublin

The 2010 Bord Gais National league first round saw Cork Senior Ladies Footballers host Dublin in Fermoy yesterday February 7th. For Dublin they travelled to Cork on a mission – to avenge for their 2009 All Ireland loss , and their determination was evident throughout the match , and upon the final whistle they returned to the capital with the just rewards of those 2 precious first league points for 2010. For Cork , though the result was disappointing , it was only the first day out of what hopefully will be another very long season to All Ireland final day at the end of September. It is hoped that this teams break from this Saturday February 13th to Saturday 20th in Tunisia will revitalise the squad & they return to travel to Monaghan on February 21st – refocused and energised for another competitive year in Ladies Football. The thanks of the board goes to all in Fermoy GAA who helped in any way to host this match.

Final Score Dublin 1-12 Cork 3-03.

County Secretaries / PRO Information evening;

Last Thursday in Macroom , Gobnait & myself hosted a Club Secretary / Club PRO information evening & we were joined on the night by County Development Officer Ger Walsh. Approx 40 clubs out of the 65 within the county attended same & were treated to informative presentations from both Ger & Gobnait which should enable all clubs to perform their officerships more efficiently throughout the season. Gobnait gave a wonderful presentation on every aspect of a club secretary from how to apply for the Accident fund, to transfers & onto club meeting / AGMS & she also wants it noted that all communication via the mobile to her from now on should go through her county board number 085-1100828 & to leave a message on same during School hours. By now all clubs according to rule 100 of the 2009 Official Guide – all clubs should have held their AGM – so if you have yet to forward your club Agm reports in full to Gobnait & a summary of same for printing in the Echo to me , please complete this week . For Club secretaries it is important you forward your email address & mobile phone numbers to Gobniat & Club PROS forward your email & mobile phone numbers to me ( 085-1100826) .

On Sunday last in Fermoy, the Cork senior Ladies Football team played their first league match of 2010 against Dublin. It was a special occasion for the large Bride Rovers following that was present, to witness our own Grace Kearney lining out with the panel for the first time. Grace got the call up to the panel during the week and all of us in the club wish her the very best of luck. Grace has been playing for Cork since she was 13 years and has won numerous underage titles, she has been a great ambassador for her club and is making her own bit of history once again .She was the first club girl to wear an underage Jersey for Cork and many have followed in her footsteps since so lets hope she is setting a precent for Senior football as well.

The scor na bpaisti East Cork final is on this Sunday afternoon in Watergrasshill and we wish all our players taking part the best of luck. Best of luck also to all our club members taking part at the moment in various trials for Cork teams.
