Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club Notes
June 10, 2019
Another great weekend of Féile, our lads kicked off brilliantly on the Friday night winning both games, they went onto top the group the next day, but unfortunately came a cropper in the Qtr Final losing by a point to De La Salle. While they may be disappointment we are sure they shouldn’t be as the performed brilliantly and the club is proud of their efforts and similarly the girls were outstanding and while they might have bowed out in the group stages, the played with great heart and determination and most importantly enjoyed themselves. So well done to all involved.
Not such as good weekend for our adult footballers – with all 4 teams losing over the last week, Senior footballers suffering from the summer lull (exodus) lost out to a strong Crokes team, with all 3 other teams losing to teams who are competing at the top of the tables. Inter Ladies Football had a good and important win midweek in the league. This week we have Hurling Championship with Jnr As looking to keep their chances of a qtr-final alive with a home win, support very much welcome and appreciated, Tuesday 7.30pm 12th Lock. The Jnr Bs then play on Thursday night and will be hoping to keep up their good form, but will face a stiff test vs St Brigids again home support very much appreciated, 7.30pm Thursday 12th Lock. On Sunday morning the Senior hurlers are away to Kilmacud Crokes at 10.30am.
Before that Chris Crummey and the Dublin Senior hurlers have a massive game on Saturday in Parnell Park vs Galway and we wish him and the team well. Well done to Darren Gavin and the Dublin Senior footballers on securing another Leinster Final spot.

U8 girls football report
Templeogue Synge Street V Lucan Sarsfields.
Our U8 girls played football away to Templeogue Synge Street on Sunday morning. Great to see them developing their skills, some great hand passing, soloing, and kicking, as well as some chatting and laughing. We played three games, and all the girls got loads of ball time. We even had time for a cartwheel race. Great fun. All looking forward to our first football blitz in 2 weeks.
