U10’s on tour in Craughwell

Newmarket U10s hurling group had an early start  last Sunday and went by bus to the annual Craughwell hurling tournament in Galway.
They got all the seasons in one day weather wise but battled on.
24 players and 2 teams represented the club in some great matches. Both teams played 4 matches each.
8 clubs took part including Clarinbridge, Ballinasloe, Nass, Kilruane, Kilmacud Crokes , Ardrahan and Craughwell which is great experience for they young Blues .
The U9s won 2 and lost 2 close games and the Newmarket U10s got all the way to the final and only lost by 1 point to Clarinbridge in a great final.
Great day by all involved and thanks to Craughwell GAA club for hosting and asking Newmarket U10s hurling teams to take part.
Well done lads, a great experience and may more days out to come.
This weekend the U10’s are travelling to neighbours Wolfe Tones Saturday Morning, with U11’s playing Eire óg on Sunday evening, they had victory over Sixmilebridge on Monday so will be hoping to build on that with a visit to the Townies. Best of luck to all!!
How many U10 hurlers can you fit in a land Rover to shelter from the rain!!
