Senior hurlers start league this Sunday

The 2012 campaign for Kinvara senior hurlers will officially take off this coming Sunday 12th Feb as our lads take on senior newcomers Moycullen in the Senior Hurling League.

The league was not a happy hunting ground for Kinvara last year, with 5 defeats in 5 matches. Manager Ollie Bergin & Co will no doubt be aiming to reverse that record and aim for 5 wins this time. Training has been going well in the past few weeks, ever since a fitness test was taken by all hurlers on New Years Eve 31st Dec 2011.
Although the league is starting a bit earlier this year, no doubt the hurlers will be keen to hit the ground running and banish any memories of last year.

The opponents this Sunday are 2011 Intermediate champions Moycullen, who are playing their first senior match since 1979. They too will be keen to prove that they are up to senior standard and will be hoping to take the scalp of Kinvara. 

Match is on this Sunday in Moycullen at 10.30am.

Best of luck to all the lads for the coming year!
