JUNIOR C1 quarter-final time!   19/10/2012

There are three GULLANE'S HOTEL Junior C1 Quarter Finals down for decision this weekend and some interesting ties lie in store.

On Saturday in Turloughmore, the men of Liam Mellows will take on Annaghdown. The Mellows men will feel they were unlucky in last years Semi Final and will want to get back there and banish the memories of that heartbreaking defeat. They have put up some good scores in their group games and are aiming to go all the way this year. Annaghdown will have something to say about that and will be boosted with the return of several players.They are well capable of getting a result and will be very hard to put away.

Also on Saturday Athenry take on Kilbeacanty in Gort. These two teams have looked impressive in the groups and although this is Athenry's 4th adult team they are not turning up to make up the numbers and will want to join their Junior C clubmates who are also in a Semi Final v Tynagh Abbey Duniry which preceeds this game and is also in Gort. Kilbeacanty on the other hand topped Group B with 5 wins from 5 and have registered some big tallys in doing so. With a good mix of youth and seasoned  hurlers they are sure to be in with a good shout.

In the 3rd of the quarter-finals this weekend, Ballygar take to the field against a Ballinasloe outfit who will be sure to be on a high after last weekends dramatic Junior A Football Final win over Clifden in Pearse Stadium. Interestingly this is Ballinasloe's first team who last  year fared fairly well hurling in Junior A and yet find themselves on the brink of getting to a Semi Final and perhaps dreaming of a unique double in 2012. However don't underestimate the men of Ballygar as they will be aiming to prolong their Championship run and will be no pushover as some of their results in the group will show.

All these players are going out this weekend aiming to claim a Semi-Final berth in Junior C1, they are as committed and passionate about their hurling as anyone and deserve our support, so get out and support your team this weekend!

Regards, Wingback
