St Fechins GFC

Well done to all our players who represented Louth at the weekend. Between football, hurling and ladies football we had over ten players starting for their county, with more making appearances. Even though all results did not go our way, our players contributed greatly, scoring in all games.

St Fechins Adult Football, Ladies Football and Hurling teams are beginning their preparations for the 2017 season. As always we welcome any new players or returning players. If anyone is interested in playing for our adult teams please contact St Fechins on Facebook.

Even though our pitches are quiet at the moment our committees are very busy preparing for the new year. Our underage coaches have been attending coaching seminars, our PR team has been attending workshops and our development committee has been planning the future of the club. We would love to hear from anyone who like to be involved or could bring their expertise and skills to our club committees.

Committee 2017

St Fechins and Louth Hurler Seaghan Conneely is nominated for Drogheda Independent Sports Star of the Year Award after his goal scoring heroics for Louth in Croke Park. We hope that all St Fechins supporters will fill in and return the form in the Sport section of the DI this week.

Best of luck to our players who are representing Louth this weekend. On Sunday Bevan Duffy and Ronan Holcroft will be part of the Louth Senior who face Dublin in the O’Byrne Cup Final in Drogheda. Good luck also to our players who line out with Louth Hurlers against Longford in the Keogh Cup and with Louth Ladies as they open their National League campaign away to Carlow.

St. Fechins juvenile hurlers started their 2017 season with an outing organised by Ulster GAA at the DKIT indoor arena in Dundalk. Clubs from Louth, Armagh, Cavan Down attended the event with clubs organised into 4 groups. Up first for our young hurlers was St. Patricks and despite a bit of rustiness following the Christmas layoff it took the boys little time to dispatch their opponents. Darragh Stone bossed midfield and ensured a plentiful supply of ball into the forwards with poacher supreme Cathal Moynagh dispatching the ball to the net. Despite his 40 hour trip home from New Zealand, Seamus Rushe showed no symptoms of jet lag with few balls passing him in defence.
A quick turnaround was required for the next match against Craobh Rua and a few positional changes saw Cian Corrigan and Issac Smith moving into defence. The boys provided a solid platform repelling every attack and delivering good ball up to the forwards. With Michael McGlew and Andrew O’Reilly up front benefitting from the plentiful supply of ball, the goals came quick and fast with Andrew finishing on a hat- trick by full time.
The final match for St. Fechins was Killeavey from Armagh who would give the boys a stern test. The boys conceded a goal early but kept their composure and with Colm Hackett dominating in midfield the boys moved into the lead with two goals. Darragh Stone then added another goal with the best move of the match starting from defence. Goals were then traded by both teams in what proved to be a good standard of hurling till the final whistle was blown by Eoghan Hackett from St Fechins who officiated on behalf of the club at the blitz.
This event will be run again in three weeks time with St. Fechins getting to play a different set of teams and will prove beneficial as they strive to improve their skills for the coming seasons competitions.

St Fechins AGM took place in Forge Field Café on Friday December 30th 2016. The following positions on the Club Committee were filled on the night:

Chairman: John McEvoy
Vice-chairmen: John McGlew & Matthew Ronan
Secretary: Frank Hughes
Assistant Secretary: Maire Devine

PRO: Donancha O’Connell
Cultural Officer: Donal Lynch
Registrar: Michelle Mooney
Health & Wellbeing Officer: Anthony Duff
Development Officer: Niall Carolan
Childrens Officer: Colm Mulholland
County Board Representatives: Michael Holcroft & Vincent McGlew

In his address on the night Chairman John McEvoy congratulated our teams on a fantastic year where St Fechins teams excelled on and off the field. He also thanked all St Fechins players, coaches, supporters and sponsors for all their efforts this year and wished them success in 2017.

St Fechins and Louth Hurler Seaghan Conneely is nominated for Drogheda Independent Sports Star of the Year Award after his goal scoring heroics for Louth in Croke Park. We hope that all St Fechins supporters will fill in and return the form in the Sport section of the DI.

St Fechins have a number of players involved with county squads at the moment and we wish them the best of luck in their upcoming matches.
