White’s Cross Gaa Camogie U8 & U10
It was a great evening up in Whites Cross Gaa pitch on Friday 26th of September. When our u8 & 10 girls took on Passage Gaa camogie girls. Both teams went in fighting from the start and fear wasn’t a word you would associate with these set of girls. From the off they pulled, hooked blocked every ball that came there way. All girls were outstanding on the night and great credit goes to them for coming so far. Thanks to their coach Anita Maher for all her hard work it really shows in the girls and also to the girls for the hard work they are putting in. All girls really enjoy themselves on the night.

On Friday night White’s Cross minor footballers lost out to Clondrohid, in the minor championship final, on a scoreline of 1.11 to 0.09. This game was not for the faint hearted and our brave young men put in a mighty effort. The 5 points difference at the end wasn’t a fair reflection on how close this game was. But for the Clondrohid woodwork, on two occasions, the outcome might have been different. From the throw in White’s Cross hit the ground running and some early scores from killian Ryan and Paul Hayes, put the lads into a 0.04 to 0.02 lead. Clondrohid hit back with a goal to take the lead for the first time. White’s Cross to there credit didn’t panic and at half time the sides were level at 1.04 to 0.07 thanks to late scores from Fergal Reid and Billy O Hara. Early in the second half a fantastic effort from Corey Cambridge came back off the post much to the relief of the Clondrohid lads. As the game ticked by 4 massive 45s by Clondrohid proved vital and they were able to stretch there lead. With 5 minutes remaining a great run by Paul Hayes saw his shot rebound off the foot of the post. At the other end Clondrohid had there chances as White’s Cross pushed forward and two outstanding saves from goalkeeper Jack Kiely kept the lads in touch. Colin Sisk and Shane Twomey made some outstanding blocks and Sean O Leary never stopped running all night. The beauty of this East minor championship final is that both team will now go forward to represent the division in the County championship, so all is not lost for this Team, and there is every chance that these two mighty teams could meet again in the county final, in a few weeks time. These young White’s Cross lads showed great heart and dignity and did there club and families proud. They will be back training this week in preparation for the winnersof the West Cork division.Well done to everyone and we look forward to the county.
White’s cross Gaa u10 camogie attend a final go game blitz in Ballincollig this morning and there we were paired to play our close neighbours Sarsfield.
The girls showed some great determination and fight against this very strong side. All girls worked very well together and some great team work was on show. You could see the progression of the team that only started last year playing camogie. The team had a great morning and were very pleased with their performance at the end of the game. Each girl was given a camogie string bag and water bottle, which was well deserved by all the players involved.
The first half the girls were slow to take off but quickly got into the game, with an outstanding second half performance.
The team on the day were Jessica Murphy, Chloe Gaffney, Rebecca Kelleher, Isabell Hyde, Isabelle Kelleher, Kate Manley, Grainne Sneddon, Abbie Garde and Olivia McCarthy.
Well done girls. The girls also were very proud wearing their new jersey’s kindly sponsors by Saloon 33
