Opening League match for Junior B hurlers

posted 2 Apr 2012, 14:50 by Unknown user
Its here! Our Junior B hurlers face into their first competitive match of the year as the Junior B Hurling League commences this Good Friday 6th April.

Our first opponents are up the road in Beagh, and the Kinvara lads have to travel there for the 6:30pm throw-in. Training has been going well but it wont be a easy match and this should be a close affair.

Best of luck to all the lads and to the management of John Linnane, John McDonagh, Niall Curtin and Colm Callanan.

For the record, the Junior B groups are as per below. They are the same groups for both championship and league. However, in the league, Kinvara's group D will not play each other, but will play the sides in Group A. Therefore, Kinvara will have League matches against Abbeykockmoy, Beagh, Spiddal, Kilnadeema-Leitrim, St. Thomas and Craughwell. It will then revert back to normal for the championship when we will meet Gort, Castlegar, Tynagh-Abbey-Duniry and Cappataggle.
