Training continues for all first and second team players on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. The teams are currently preparing for a busy season that begins in October but for them the action begins on the Saturday evening when they face Clanwilliam of Tipperary in the opening friendly of the season. Clanwilliam are one of Munster’s top junior sides and this will be seen as an important aspect of castlebar’s pre season training. Given the fact that the season has reverted back to the once only format as regards games in the Connacht junior league, an optimistic attitude is currently in the club. Anyone interested in joining the panel to train are asked to contact any committee member.
It is also a special day for the club with the junior interprovincial between Connacht and Ulster in Cloondeash. This game kicks off at 3pm with the friendly kicking off afterwards. There is also a special invitation for all schoolchildren and their parents to come out and watch some of the best junior players in the country in action. It is also a wonderful opportunity for those who may be interested in joining the club to come out and see the wonderful facilities that are available in Cloondeash.
Underage training will begin again for the new season very shortly so all underage players are asked to start getting some pre season training done as it is going to be a very busy season. those interested in helping in any way are asked to contact any committee member or contact the number at the bottom of the page for more details.
Good luck to Mike Campbell, Alex Goor and Kevin Cox who represent the club on Saturday when Connacht play Ulster in Cloondeash.
Congratulations to Joe Rawson who has been nominated for the clubman of the year awards at the forthcoming Connacht rugby awards in the Radisson hotel in Galway on Saturday evening.
Membership will be due shortly, members will be notified.
