WITH Covid-19 restrictions beginning to ease, Ceann Creige Hurling Club has started to plan once again for the future.
The club is aiming to kickstart its schools’ programmes in many schools in the east end of Glasgow, which will provide children with the opportunity to try a new sport, make new friends and get fit whilst having fun. The intention is that this will help to increase the club’s numbers at youth training, which will be important in the new year when matches will be played. In the meantime, Ceann Creige has developed good links with the Camanachd Association (Shinty) and hopes to arrange some fun mixed matches. The club is also planning its youth awards night in November. Despite a difficult year the young players have made a great effort to attend training and further develop their skills.
The Camogie team is continually gaining new members and, as travel restrictions subside, they intend to play in the Britain Camogie League later in the year and indeed in the years ahead. The team has many experienced players and beginners, so if you would like to get involved please get in touch with the club.
The Senior Men’s Hurling team is already preparing for 2022 and have arranged a number of challenge matches both home and away to further develop their skills. A club spokesperson has stated that ‘interest in this new team and has been amazing and many players are travelling from Edinburgh to make training and matches. The intention is for the team to enter the Lancashire Championship next year so the more match practice we can get the better.’ In order continue their preparations, the team will take on Yorkshire Emeralds prior to the Championship Final. Then, on September 25, the club welcomes Fullen Gaels to Scotland to take part in another challenge match.
Several social events are also currently in the planning stage, so Ceann Creige has encouraged all those interested to keep an eye on their social media for details.
