Lucan Sarsfields GAA Club Notes

October 26, 2020

Well done to all of our senior county players, over the bank holiday weekend, Chris Crummy (pictured keeping possession ahead of Mark Kavanagh of Laois. Photo: Sportsfile), captaining the hurlers to a win over Laois, Darren Gavin and Emmet O’Conghaile, travelled to Salthill with the footballers for the final league win over Galway, Emma Flanagan, Ali Twomey and Laura Quinn, while on the Camogie team that didn’t secure a win, will be in action again next week for a place in the quarter finals.

Training Slots during the Level 5 restrictions.

Among the guidelines issued by the Gaelic Games committees; Training at Minor level and below only will be permitted for clubs in all 32 Counties (but not Inter-County). 

However, it must be on a non-contact basis in pods of no more than 15 people. 

Dressing Rooms cannot be used and the Health Questionnaire must be filled out by all those participating. 

Attendance by parents/guardians should be on the basis of one per child (for child protection reasons) and the Health Questionnaire must be filled out by all of those coming into the ground.

As all adult teams have ceased training for the time being and in order to allow all underage (u18) teams/squads the opportunity to train while complying with the pods of 15 restriction, the Juvenile Committee have communicated with mentors some new slots and arrangements for training. 

It is important that all players restrict themselves to one team per code per week. Hurling/Football or Camogie/Ladies Football. 

Players must train with their own age-group only, and if they only play one code, they cannot train with a different age group in the same code. 

Remember, “We Are All In This Together,” and it will end at some point, when we can go back to normal.

Many thanks to the volunteers who were hard at work over the weekend, completing essential maintenance and houskeeping tasks at the club. 

As well as the Lighting on the all Weather Pitch
