Strabane Sigersons club notes

July 11, 2018

Youth;

Congratulations to our minor boys who progressed to the semi-final of the Grade 2 Championship after defeating Newtownstewart 4-17 to 3-14 last Tuesday night in Urney. Two goals from Eunan McNulty along with a goal each from Anthony Crossan and Connor O'Hagan gave Strabane a vital victory in an amazing game of Gaelic.

With both games played and the boys on three points Gortin needed to better Strabane's result against Owen Roes to relegate them to the shield semi finals but thankfully the Glen men got the better of Gortin leaving us with a though battle against Castlederg in the Cup Semi Final.

The tension during the Castlederg game was almost as high as the pitch side temperatures as both teams traded points leaving the scores tied at half time. With it all to play for in the second half the Strabane men played their best football of the day and scored several unanswered scores to gain a place in the Final.

Aghyaran had a epic encounter with Urney in the other Semi Final and even needed extra time to separate the teams. Given the late finish in the Aghyaran v Urney game the final was delayed to ensure the game took center stage in front of a sizeable crowd.

As the throw in approached the nerves were starting to show but Jason and John pulled themselves together on time to line out the team. Seriously though, if there was nerves on show it didn't show on either of the teams players as they battled out an enthralling first half with Sigersons fortunate to be leading by a couple at the break.

The second half saw the boys in blue dominate the initial and extend their lead to 5 points. But to be fair to Aghyaran they battled to the end ensuring that the Sigersons men worked hard for their much deserved victory. The final whistle initiated jubilent celebrations from the players, coaches and supporting parents. A scene that will hopefully be well rehearsed in the years to come with this talented and dedicated group of players.

A massive thank you as always to the travelling support and also well done and thankyou to Drumquin on hosting an excellent tournament.

 

Volunteers Needed

Strabane Sigersons GAA are always on the lookout for volunteers to help with coaching and administration in the club throughout the summer months.

 

During the summer there will be several opportunities to assist with the running of the club at events such as youth training, coaching camps, grounds maintenance and fundraising events.

 

Volunteering not only helps your club deliver quality services within the local community but also gives you a platform to develop new skills that will enhance your employability, CV and college applications.

 

Young volunteers can also gain official recognition for their contributions to the club through Ulster GAA's VolunteerNow program. Several of our young volunteers have been very successful and actually went on to gain employment, university places and even win awards through their volunteer activities at the Club.
