Senior League Final! As you are probably aware the Emmets have reached their second final in a row and after last year’s disappointment we hope for better fortunes this Saturday in Inniskeen where the ball will be thrown in at 5-00pm. The opponents will be Ballybay who not so long ago put an end to our Championship aspirations. Previous games over the past two years have been competitive and well-contested and there has never been much between the sides. It would be great for our supporters if we can capture only our second title and we are sure that they will make the short journey to Grattan Park to lend their encouragement in that particular task. It has been a long year from a player’s and management point-of-view and they have given a huge commitment to training and playing over the last nine months and we wish them the best of luck in the final; hopefully they get what they deserve for their dedication and loyalty.

 

Noises Off!  Celebrating ten years on the boards the Farney Players present this side-splitting play within a play about the follies of theatre folk whose susceptibility to out of control egos, passionate affairs and memory loss turn every performance into a high-risk adventure! Keep free 8th 9th 10th of November in Carrickmacross and the 15th 16th in Castleblayney! The Emmet club recognise the great assistance of the Farney Players towards our development funding costs over the past decade and we hope everyone will support this excellent production. FARNEY PLAYERS FACEBOOK: Only two weeks of rehearsals to go before our staging of this year’s show. Noises Off is credited with being hailed as possibly the funniest farce ever written and as the title suggests it’s based around what happens on and off stage. In this production we see what happens when lines are forgotten, cues are missed and secret love affairs are all brought into the mix not to mention a cast members love for the bottle! All proceedings are led by a hot headed director with a raging libido who tries in vain to recreate perfection on stage.

 

 

Annual General Meeting! At a meeting of the club last week it was agreed to hold the AGM on Friday 22nd November in the Emmet Centre at 8pm. We will be seeking nominations for a number of positions on the Executive Committee including volunteers for the formation of a Juvenile Committee which will be an opportunity for new people to get involved in underage affairs especially parents and  coaches. Today; the running of a club takes a great deal of energy and commitment including legalisation and safety obligations and can’t be run successfully if the effort and organisation is not put in place. Over the years the voluntary endeavour has faded as people have decided to withdraw their services and it is left to others to keep the flag flying. However; the club is in a healthy place and is ready for a new phase and for new people and the ongoing development and progress will continue over the next twelve months. We would appeal to members and former members to consider their options as to how best they can serve the Emmet Club whether on a committee, coaching or just offering their skills and assistance to ensure that the adult and youth players get the best opportunity to represent their club. We would also like to see a better representation from our female members which at presently far too low and needs to be addressed in some manner going forward. See what you can do!

Ulster Tournament! At the weekend the Emmets selection travelled to Dromore Co Tyrone to partake in the Paul McGirr tournament and in an exciting game they were beaten on the line by one point. Their opponents O’Donovan Rossa had to hold off a very stern challenge from the Emmett’s in the second quarter final of this Ulster U16 Club Champions Tournament. This first half goal helped them on their way to the semi-finals but a strong Emmets rally towards the end kept the result in doubt. Just before half time a booming fifty yard effort from Stephen O’Rourke and two points each from Cian Conlon and Flynn Holland Boylan gave Carrickmacross a four-point lead before they were once again caught by a Rossa sucker punch when they superbly finished a sweeping move when put through by their lone target man for their second goal. Points were swapped to leave the half time score 1-07 to 2-02 to the Emmets. A Cian Conlon free levelled matters in the dying minutes and with the next score vital but it was Rossa captain who turned out to be his sides hero putting his body on the line to intercept a dangerous attack and then charged eighty yards down the pitch before finally being hauled down, leaving it to McCafferty to convert the free before the referee brought an end to an enthralling quarter final O’Donovan Rossa 3-09:  Carrickmacross Emmett’s 2-11. Carrickmacross – Kyle Cassidy, Sean Birdy, Cathal Maher, Luke McSharry, Finan Carolan, Jack McMenamin, Niall Meehan, Darragh Mee, Cian Conlon (0-4, 3f) Oisin McNally, Stephen O’Rourke (1-03), Ciaran McMahon, Flynn Holland Boylan (0-02, 1f) Dualta Honney (0-01) Jack Carolan (1-01 1f)– Subs Jamie Jones and Nathan Campbell.
