LEINSTER MEDALS - Congratulations to Brian Kelly, James Hogan and Adam O’Neill on winning Leinster medals recently whilst playing hurling for Borris Vocational. School’s Team.

They defeated Ardscoil Ris, Dublin in the Leinster Schools’ Juvenile Hurling B Final with a scoreline of 1:16 to 4 pts.

UNDER 9’S CONTINUE THEIR WINNING WAYS - The Under 9s continued their winning streak with a fine 5-0 win over Southend. A game which was dominated from start to finish by the home side saw them 2 up at the break with goals from Aaron Hosey and Patrick Langton.

Any threat from Southend was dealt with by Donagh Murphy and Tom Foot who controlled the defence with a confident Jack Doyle keeping his line safe.

Dylan Hunston and Joe Healy dominated the middle with the latter helping himself to a fine score, indeed he could have had three more but for Torres like touches.

Luke Fenlon was very solid on his introduction taking a fine score with a notable celebration.

A long range effort from Kyle Foley made it 4, with the 5th coming from Cathal Purcell.

Well done again lads, keep up the hard work!

CORRECTION - In our report last week of the Paulstown/Goresbridge Camogie Club AGM it was incorrectly stated that Tom Brennan sponsored the Intermediate jerseys, in actual fact Tom sponsored the Juvenile jerseys and it was John Brennan, formerly of Cluain Mhuire, Goresbridge that very kindly sponsored the Intermediate jerseys. John now resides in London but is a regular visitor to Goresbridge, thanks to John.
