louth hurlers got their first win in 2 years in the National league the weekend when they overcame Tyrone on a scoreline of 4-12 to 0-20. Mike Lyons lined out at Full back with Andy McCrave line out at centre back, both Shane Callan and Gerard Smyth played in the half forward line and both got on the scoresheet with Callan bagging 1-0 and Smyth contributing 1-1 to the final score.
Adult training continues every Monday evening in Muirhevnamor’s small astro pitch beside the community centre from 8-9pm. Old and new members always welcome with an enjoyable session being run by senior player Brian McCabe.
Finally we’re looking for all outstanding sponsorship cards to be returned asap. There was no winner of the scorecast last week as Cavan prevailed on a scoreline of 3-17 to 0-13. The order for the socks should be in this coming week. Anyone who did not return a card will still be able to purchase their shorts and socks. Gerard will be in contact in regards sizes in the coming days.
