Both the Joes and our friendly rival hurling club Naomh Padraig are short on numbers this year. Neither club was able to field a full team for our canceled match a few weeks back, so we made a plan to join our forces and field a combination team. Last week some Joes went up to rally with NP at a joint training, and so this NP/SJ combo team is going to take on the Tipperary junior team this weekend !
Game this weekend
Check out the game at the Gaelic fields on Treasure Island, at 2pm. There’s football games before, and it’s followed right after with a Tipp / Na Fianna senior-team clash, all for $5. For more details, check out the new SF/Western-division GAA’s website at: https://www.sanfrangaa.com/championship
We could also use some help on the sidelines, so contact us if you want to get back into hurling with the Joes – from a distance. I’d be especially keen on having anyone with a tactical eye and a loud voice to help us organize our play and regroup at halftime.
The folks behind Fiddler’s Green have opened a new pub in San Carlos called Molly O’s. To mark this, they’ve sponsored some new jerseys for St. Joseph’s this year. Check out a preview, or see them in action at a game:
That’s all for now, but I hope to post updates about St. Joseph’s to this list in the future.
Let us know if you’ve any feedback, opinions, ideas, or could help us on the field, sidelines, or with organization.
