A busy weekend ahead for our teams. First up, the Cullen Cup team (defending champions 2015 and 2016) start their campaign against Borris on Friday with all 5 games at home. The squad are chasing a third successive win in this competition and are now unbeaten since 2014 (a run of 8 successive rounds). Best of luck to Betty, Colm and the panel in chasing a hat trick. The AIG Pierce Purcell Shield gets underway on Saturday with qualifying in Roundwood. The team managed by Padraic Croke will be hoping to go one better than last year after narrowly missing out in the first regional qualifier. Our Metropolitan team are also in action with 9 singles matches against Foxrock (home and away) on Sunday. On the junior side, following the brilliant win last weekend by our under 15s, their senior counterparts play in the Fred Daly on Saturday against Blainroe. Once again, lets hope our teams have a successful weekend and please come out to support the players, caddies and managers.
