Membership Subscriptions 2014/2015
Hi, subscriptions are now due so hopefully all concerned will be kind enough to pay their ‘dues’ as quickly as possible. There is no mystery as to what one has to pay as the categories are pretty straight forward. (See under Membership) However an important addition to the categories is the Family Membership and will be helpful to families who may have a few kids interested in playing and of course Mum and Dad will automatically be full members also and have the same entitlements as every other member - not the least of which is an entitlement to apply for 'ticket's'.
I’m stressing here the mad scramble every year for Heineken Cup, Autumn Internationals as well as Six Nation Rugby tickets which can sometimes but not always be as rare as ‘hen’s teeth’ and are only available to fully paid up members – so there are advantages of membership.
Skibbereen entertained Newcastle West in their first home League game on the 27th and played well enough throughout but the wheels came off in the final minute to let them in for a try and conversion - score 8 - 20. Click HERE for match report .
Sunday 5th October St. Senan's away: Skibbereen travelled to Shannon for their second league game of the season but suffered another defeat 20 - 30. Click HERE for match report
Sunday 12th October St. Mary's at home : A fine performance today and our first League win of the current season. Having been put to the sword twice last year by St. Mary's it was a sweet victory on a scoreline of 20 - 7. We would all agree the bonus point was left behind but we move forward now in a more positive mode and look for a similar result in Tralee next Sunday. Click HERE for match report.
Sunday 19th October MJCC V Waterpark: Yet another step in the right direction with a win over Waterpark 13 - 10 to secure a meeting against Old Christians for a place in the Semi-Final of the JuniorClubs Challenge Cup. See match report HERE
Due to bad weather and some postponements the first outing of the month for the J1's was the Munster Junior Clubs Challenge quarter-final clash against City side Old Christians on the 16th. Always guaranteed to be a fiercely competitive encounter between the sides - this time was no exception. Nothing much between them right up to the whistle, it was to be Skibbereen's day on the basis of just a better quality performance over the 80 minutes. The final score of 21 - 16 was a true reflection even if the Old Christians last score came almost as the final whistle sounded. Great performance from Skibbereen after a four week lay-off. The Semi-Final is against Cobh Pirates and is fixed for Sunday the 21st December ---I know---I know--in Cobh @2.00pm. Click HERE for match report.
Sunday 23rd Novenber MJL V Cobh at Home: The recent winning streak continued with a win against Cobh 20 - 14 at the Showgrounds. This is the fourth successive win in a row and while we were ultimately pushed to the finishing line it was a deserving victory. Plenty of posession in the first half only yielded a dissapointing 8 points when we could have been 20 - but it happens. The second half was tough with Cobh dictating a lot of the pace , but we ran in 2 fine tries and a conversion to bolster our lead which we held to the whistle - but there were a few scary moments. The defence was fantastic and without doubt there were some tired and weary bodies later. Click HERE for match report
Sunday 30th November MJL Clonmel Away: Joint top of the table side this will be a difficult encounter on their own ground - fingers crossed. Yes it was a tough encounter and it didn't help that we were without a fe high profile players. In any event the spoils went to Clonmel by a substantial margin. Could not make the match for personal reasons so no report on this one.
Sunday 7th December MJL V Kinsale at Home: A good day at the office as our first team had a fine victory 27 - 12 and also secured a bonus point. Kinsale pushed us all the way and were unlucky not to register a few more points on the board. Nice to see a return to the 'ring' of Greg O'Mahony and Denis O'Driscoll and also Lorcan Carey - back from sunnier climates. And the youthful Daniel Lynch showed great promise when he came on. Tralee away next Sunday so hopefully the good results will follow too. See Kinsale match report HERE.
