A quick reminder about the Club Juvenile Coaches Information Evening.
At the Springhill Court Hotel on this Thursday 9th February at 8.00pm.
Each club is invited to send in their Club Juvenile Coaching Co-ordinator and one coach each from each age group from U-8 to U18.
With the 2017 inter county season now underway our Supporters Club are now planning for the year ahead. The annual general meeting will be held:
Kilkenny: Thursday 9th February, Nowlan Park 8pm
Supporters Club members are encouraged to attend this important meeting.
One of the major sources of information for clubs is the monthly club newsletter from Croke Park. This is sent directly to every club and we here in Kilkenny have now created a link on our home page where the newsletter can be viewed on an ongoing basis. The link is contained on the bottom right of this page under the Twitter and Calendar Boxes. The January version is now available and contains some very important issues such as Registration of Players, Sports Capital Funding, National Club Draw, Healthy Club Scheme, The Football Mark, Lá na gClubanna, On Line Player Transfer and many other subjects.
Kilkenny Referees are currently recruiting new members and hope to run a training night in next couple of weeks. If you are interested please contact Sean Breathnach on 086 3148370 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are 8 clubs in Kilkenny who currently do not supply a referee for the huge programme of games on offer in Kilkenny. If you have finished playing why not consider putting something back into the game by becoming a referee.
Following their exciting win over neighbours Wexford in the semi-final Kilkenny will now take on Galway in the Bord na Mona Walsh Cup Final in Nowlan Park next Sunday with a 2pm throw in. Admission will be €10 for adults; €5 for students/pensioners and under 16's free. Both Ardan de Gras and Ardan Breathnach will be open for this game. All proceeds go to the Leinster Players hardship fund. Season Tickets are not valid for this fixture.
Kilkenny earned their place in the final with a narrow 0-15 to 0-14 win over Wexford played before a large crowd at a very wet New Ross. Kilkenny can thank goalkeeper Richie Reid for a point blank save in injury time which denied a game Wexford team certain victory. It is now four wins out of four in this early season competition and Kilkenny are sure to be all out to secure the first piece of silverware on offer in 2017.
