Junior A HL 4th Round – GBC v Carrickshock 3/05/2019

The Junior A team continued their winning campaign last Friday 3rd May when they travelled South to take on Carrickshock in Hugginstown.  With the return of a couple of players from injury and illness numbers were good and GBC went into the match with confidence. This confidence looked somewhat premature as it was Carrickshock who had the much better start. They quickly built up a 1-3 to 0-2 lead before GBC settled down. With each side matching one another score for score it was not a surprise that the teams went in at half time all square on a score of 1-9 each.

Junior A Hurling League 3rd Round – GBC v Young Ireland’s 27/04/2019

The Junior A team’s second outing (Rd 1 v Erins Own yet to be played) saw GBC take on Young Ireland’s in Tom Ryall Park on Saturday 27th April. GBC were missing at least eight players due to illness and injury but even so put up a spirited display from the throw in. Guilty of some wayward shooting the GBC side should have been more in control of the game from the start and were disappointed to be a point behind at the interval.

North Junior A Hurling League Round 1 – 05/04/14

Graigue Ballycallan 2-23  Fenians 1-10

GBC and the Fenians played in the first round of the North Junior A hurling league in Tom Ryall Park on Saturday. The home side played with the wind in the first half and started well with 3 points from play from Gearoid Cleere, but despite the best efforts of the full forward line, the ball seemed determined to avoid the back of the net. However, a brace of points each from Gearoid Murphy, Willie O’Connor and Philly Cahill and a fourth from Gearoid Cleere from a free left GBC ahead by 13 points to 3 at half time. Read more
