Saturday, March 10 was the date and Rockwell College, Co Tipperary was the venue for an extremely busy day for Fermoy Junior Hockey Club players. Our U10s were first out of the starting blocks and fielded 3 teams in a Munster U10 Blitz at 11am.
Though weather conditions were damp in the Fermoy area prior to departure, our spirits were not dampened, with our players playing 4 matches each and some even managing 5 matches!
Weather conditions in Rockwell proved slightly better and Fermoy players rose to the occasion and enjoyed over 2 hours of fun and competitive hockey, goals galore with lots of time for chat and refreshments in between.
This proved a very successful and rewarding day for all involved under the guiding lights of Maria O’Flaherty, Ann Marie O’Connor, Niamh Marsh, Anna McCarthy and Olivia Tanner.
Fermoy U10 players on the day: Ellie-Mai Whelan, Clodagh O’Flaherty, Katelyn O’Flaherty, Siofra Marsh, Evie McCarthy, Katie O’Connell, Lucy O’Connell, Joanne Cogan, Ella O’Sullivan, Aoibhe Holland, Ellie Leamy, Sarah O’Connor, Ciara Hanrahan, Louise McConville, Grace Forde, Alison Tanner, James Tanner, Keelin Harding, Emily Butt.
