Intermediate Hurling resumes.
After Waterford’s early exit from the hurling championship, it’s back to the club championship for us with two rounds of the Intermediate Hurling scheduled for the next two weeks. Next Saturday at 7.30pm we take on old foes Stradbally in Dungarvan. Having had a good start with a win over An Rinn in the first round back in April, obviously any momentum gained from that win would be well gone by now, so it’s a bit like starting all over again. We haven’t had the greatest of fortunes against Stradbally over the years, so a win next Saturday would be a serious boost to the club. Whatever the result, there won’t be any resting on their laurels for our players as they have to take on Clashmore/Kinsalebeg a week later on the 22nd in Cappoquin at 3pm. Again this is a huge game especially as our opponents are reigning Western champions, and will be very tough opponents. So two big matches to come which will have a big bearing on our season. Good luck to all our players and selectors, and do come along and give them some support.
Get well soon Johnny!
We would like to send our best wishes to former Treasurer of the club Johnny Baldwin who is unwell at the moment. Get well soon Johnny.
Waterford finish winless.
Despite putting on a better performance against Cork at the Park last Saturday, the facts are pretty stark. No win since 2017 in the championship, and with Limerick Tipperary and Cork all going well the prospects aren’t looking great for next year also. From a Shamrocks point of view it was disappointing that Colm Roche didn’t see more action in the Munster Championship, with just a cameo appearance against Cork to show for a long year training. Lat’s hope for better fortune next year.
