Toome Club Notes 13.07.2023

July 17th, 2023

U11’s: The U11s will play in the Spring League final in St Victors Park – Toome on Friday 14th July, at 7:30pm against Rockcorry, please come along and support these young ballers.  
U7s: Blitz in St Victors Park – Toome on Saturday 15th July, at 9:30am.
U18’s: The under 18 amalgamation team Óglaigh Naomh Buach (Toome/Corduff) were unfortunate to come off second best in the Division 3 League Final on Thursday last 6th July. Conditions were tough and Sean’s had a good gameplan they stuck with and it worked, an entertaining game with some great football on display. 
Championship: The draw for the 2023 Intermediate Championship was completed on Monday 3rd July, Toome were drawn out in Group 1 along with Carrickmacross (seeded), Killanny, Sean McDermotts and Emyvale. Save the dates (all dates subject to change and are the weekend of the date shown): 13th August – Toome v Sean’s; 20th August – Emyvale v Toome; 27th August – Bye; 9th September Toome v Carrickmacross; 16th September – Killanny v Toome. #BeThe16thMan.
Intermediate League:  Toome played Clones in a away fixture on Saturday last, 8th July. This was a great team performance where every man gave his all. Conditions were superb with just a slight breeze. Both teams gave it their all and this was a tough match played in good spirits. Toome were down to 17 available players with injuries and unavailable players, Liam McCooey suffered an early injury and we wish him a speedy recovery, this left a lot for the team to do, this is where grit and determination come in as every man was red faced heading in at the break and again at the final whistle. Toome took their scores well creating open space and bursting through at pace, James was on point with his frees and the backs put in a solid performance despite a goal conceded. This was the win that was needed and this means Toome will face Monaghan Harps on Tuesday 25th July in the relegation play off in St Victors Park at 7:30pm. FT Score: Toome 1:14 – 1:12 Clones. Toome would like to extend well wishes and a speedy recovery to James Mealiff who landed badly and was taken off. Please be sure to come along to show your support in what is a must win game. #BeThe16thMan.
