Championship begins and Summer camp

Published in News, Senior Football

Flipeadóirí Longfoirt Well done to Slashers players who fielded against Cork on Saturday. Barry Gilleran had the difficult task of marking the up and coming Peter Kelleher for Cork and shackled him very well all day. The longer Cork remain in the championship the more we will hear of Peter Kelleher. Dermot and Michael Brady also did Trojan work against the “blood and bandages” but in the end the game went to the visitors. Well done to Longford on what has been a very good championship. Slashers now turn the attention to the championship with the first outing against Granard. The team has been building with new players but at a certain point a young player becomes a senior and there is no time like the first game in the championship to claim your spot. The club wishes the team all the very best in the first game of 2016........beir bua! Colm Farrell, Peter Brady (Capt), Rónan Sheehan, Daniel Kirby, Shane Connell, Seán and Robbie Clarke are all players that have made their mark during the league campaign and each will play an important part in 2016 for Slashers.

Flipeadóirí Longfoirt Cúl Camp Well done to the County Board and all concerned for a really well run and enjoyable Kellogs Cúl Camp at the club during the week. It was refreshing to see the “meitheal mór” of youngsters filling the pitches all week and having the best of fun in the morning sun. Great also to see the gathering of parents in the mornings and lunch time to see their children enjoying the skills of gaelic games. The organisation of the camp was top class and well done to Paddy O Connor and his team of top coaches many from Slashers giving their best to pass on the skills to the next generation. The entire week was an example of how well things can be done and it was uplifting to see the joy on the faces of the young players when they all received really first class Cúl Camps sports gear and bags. Well done to Kellogs for sponsoring a worthwhile event. Slashers will organise an upcoming annual club camp in August and young players are requested to contact Jerry Sheehan, Minor Club Secretary or the ladies club or keep an eye on the club website for details.
