News Update U17 Divisional Final Winners

What a win !! Our u-17′s battled back to win their league final against Milltown in Hawkfield today on a scoreline of 3-6 to 1-9. We did it the hard way ! Leading 1-5 to 0-5 at half-time, Milltown came more into the game in the second half and held a 2 point lead inside the last 5 mins. A well taken goal then put us ahead by a point. An equaliser from Milltown and the game looked to be heading for extra time, but there was still time for an opportunistic Athgarvan goal right at the death and victory was ours ! A massive congratulations to the team and management, on their victory, and hard work. Today again showed the value of battling all the way to the end, a quality these lads have in spades. Commiserations to Milltown who played their part in a great game.

 All Club Members,
We are honored that Kerry Football Legend and RTE Sunday Game pundit Colm ‘The Gooch’ Cooper is coming to visit Athgarvan GAA club this Sunday morning (9th July) . A special word of thanks to Michelle MacDonald for managing to get one of the best footballers in the country to spend time with us. Colm has won multiple Munster and All-Ireland titles,an all Ireland club medal with Dr. Crokes as a Centre Forward as well as been Named an All Star eight times.
Colm is due at the club just before 10 am on Sunday and will spend an hour or so with us. In order to make the visit fun and memorable for the children and parents we ask that coaches for all the age groups are available with their players at the pitch from 9:30 am on Sunday. We can get together on the pitch as we normally would on Saturdays and train/play games until Colm arrives.
Colm will then meet each age group with their coaches and spend equal time with each group before bringing the group together for a talk and send off. This should enable all the players to have the opportunity to meet and talk with our visitor.

WE DID IT !! What an evening and what a game of football as our lads defeated St. Edwards on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-13. It was a relentless game from the off as both teams gave everything. It would have been easy to panic as St. Edwards reeled in our 5 point lead to hit the front with just minutes remaining, but our boys don’t do panic as they worked their way up the field to engineer a goal with our last attack of the game. There was still time for another point from Edwards to close the gap to 1 and after an another attack was brilliantly defended by our lads, the cup was ours. This made Roy of the Rovers look run of the mill !! Massive congrats to all our players for such a composed, skillful, brave display. Huge thanks to the management for all their hard work and to all parents and supporters for cheering us on throughout. Commiserations to St. Edwards who played their part in a brilliant game.
