Good win for Junior B footballers
St James second-string footballers had a great win on Sunday last, Sept 27th when they defeated Castletownbere on a scoreline of 2-7 to 1-9. The lads have one more League fixture to play when Bandon will be the visitors to St James Park (time/date tbc). Hopefully St James will have won their Championship fixture by then as they play Clonakilty this weekend (Fri Oct 2nd, 8pm) in the Junior B football Championship. Their prize for winning this semi-final would be a semi-final meeting with Tadgh MacCarthaigh.

U10 hurling on Friday nights
Good news for our young budding U10 hurlers with the news that indoor hurling training will begin on Friday night next, October 9th. The session will last one hour (7-8pm) where the players will benefit from coaching from Junior hurling trainer Damian Dooley who will be assisted by a different Junior player each Friday night.
U12 in Autumn League Shield Final this Monday
St James U12’s lost out in their Autumn League semi-final on Friday evening last in Ardfield when going down gallantly to a superior Kilmacabea side. The lads went in at the break trailing by six points having played some superb football in the first half. In fact, most onlookers would argue that it should have only been a minimum of three as a Daniel Bennett “goal” was adjudged not to have crossed the line. Apart from this instance, St James can have no complaints as the better side won on the day pulling away in the second half. St James scored a very respectable 2-4 on the night and as a consolation the lads can now look forward to a Shield final where they will take on the other beaten League semi-finalists, Sam Maguires. This game takes place in Dunmanway on Monday next, October 5th at 7pm. Please come to support the lads.
