CONGRATULATIONS to the Fermoy Junior Soccer team on their elevation from the junior 1st Division One A ranks to the Junior Premier Division of the Munster Junior league when they defeated Midleton who were the winners of Div One B in a play off game where the winner takes all at Turner's Cross on Friday last.
This victory is a just reward for this team which has been turning out consistently good performances since last August, they can now look forward to a new challenge when the new season reopens later in the year, and meanwhile the players can enjoy a well earned rest.
Meanwhile, the club's senior team are currently involved in a three-way play-off with Carrigaline and Bandon to decide which of these teams will qualify for promotion from Division One to the Premier Division of the Munster Senior League for the coming season.
The team must play both Carrig and Bandon (Carrig have already defeated Bandon) so Fermoy now know what they must do to earn that promotion. We wish them the best of
luck in their efforts to do so. NOBLE CUP AND RACE NIGHT PROMOTIONS The Fermoy Soccer club's mid summer promotion the longstanding Noble Cup competition is coming up next week with entries closing on this Saturday night, May 19.

GAA: Hurling is taking priority in the club as the Intermediate team prepares itself for their crunch first round tie with Aghada on Saturday week, May 26, with Ballynoe having been named as the venue.
The club's junior team has been involved in the Cavanagh's of Fermoy Div Two league in recent times, losing to Ballyhea and winning at Doneraile last Saturday, these games plus a challenge game v St Catherine's are all part of the build up towards the IHC.
Of more immediate interest will be the JHC game on this Saturday night when Araglin will provide stiff opposition to the Fermoy second squad when the teams clash at Ballygiblin with a 7pm start with extra time if necessary.
It will be recalled that these teams met at the same stage last year at the same venue with Fermoy shading it at the finish, it promises to be just as close this time round.
