SOCCER - Fermoy's senior soccer team managed to keep a clean sheet and yet salvage a draw from their home game with Mayfield Utd on Sunday last, thus they continue their climb up the league table.
On Sunday next they travel to Avondale Utd where they play their second round game in the FAI Intermediate Cup, another tough assignment, hopefully they will keep another clean sheet.
The club's junior team gained full points from their game with UCC A in their Junior Premier League tie by 0-1 and so they remain well in contention in second spot.
The GAA scene is slowly coming to a close in the area, however not before neighbours Kilworth's Intermediate hurlers completed a most notable double last weekend when they defeated Ballinhassig on a 1-11 to 0-9 scoreline in the final of the Division One Intermediate Hurling League at Riverstown on Saturday last.
This followed up on their wonderful victory in the Co c/ship final two weeks and what has made this latest victory more meritorious is the fact that in doing so they defeated the very team which had just won the Premier Intermediate c/ship only two weeks before this game and which had been returned to the senior grade from whose ranks they had only been regraded just a year ago.
A great achievement for Kilworth, they are now a Premier IH team with full marks going up having won the IHC and Div One League titles in the same year.
Well done to Kilworth and wishing them the best of luck next year when they compete with the big boys, no doubt they will acquit themselves
very well here.
BEST OF LUCK TO GLANWORTH FOOTBALLERS
This column wishes the best of luck to the Glanworth IF team when the meet Cill na Martra in the final of the Division Four IF League on this Saturday.
Glanworth finished the league section in top position and having played their final games in recent weeks should be in good form for this encounter against the side which only recently lost to Eire Og in the Co C/ship semi final.
Victory here would not be overdue to the Glanworth side which has bee performing very well this year and which was unlucky to have lost in the other county semi-final to eventual champions Castletownbere.
Fermoy's minor hurlers advanced in their section of the Co league on Sunday last when they scored a hard earned 0-4 win over a strong Bishopstown side at Bishopstown on Sunday last after a period of extra time had to be played. Final score Fermoy 2-13 Bishopstown 1-12. They turn to football league this week when they entertain Millstreet in Fermoy under lights at 8pm.
