DEISE LADIES FOOTBALL DIARY


Seniors

Waterford Ladies Gaelic Football Association would like to wish the newly appointed Senior Manager Ciaran Curran and his management team all the best for the forthcoming season.

Minors
The minors are back training under new manager Joe O’Riordan in St. Augustine’s College, Abbeyside on Sunday mornings. Thanks to Michael O’Sullivan for taking the first training session.

U16 Girls
Following a bonding and training day held at the Gold Coast the previous week, Waterford Ladies’ U16s played their first game of the season on the 12th January. By all accounts the challenge match against Loreto Clonmel in WIT Carriganore was a great game. Well done girls.

U14 Girls
The U14 girls had their first challenge match of the season on January 5th against Kerry at the Ballinameela club grounds. Thanks to Kerry for making the long trip down and to Ballinameela for the use of the pitch which was in excellent condition. On Sunday 13th January the girls made the trip to New Ross where they played Wexford in a challenge match at Good Counsel College.
