Ah sure feck it, it’s Christmas…. how many times will you hear that over the next few weeks, well we said it a few days ago and decided that we would have a game between our super under 14 boys & girls teams, and what a game it was.
Our young boys and girls put on a great show for the gathered masses and I am sure we all enjoyed it as much as the players appeared to.
BIg thanks to club coach Paul Grealy who referred the game for us and did a fine job, thanks Paul.
The boys came out as winners, narrowly, as I was reminded, but there were no losers in this game, everyone enjoyed themselves and played extremely well.
Thank you to everyone who turned up to support the children.

East Cavan Eagles are delighted to announce that the North East Basketball Board has selected our club to host both the Senior Men and Ladies Top Four Tournaments.
We have also been selected to host the Under 12 Boys & Girls Top Four Tournaments.
The Senior Top Four Tournaments will take place in Virginia College on the weekend of the 18th/19th March, and yes that is St.Patrick’s Weekend, so take it easy on the celebrations. Somebody in the NEBB has a wicked sense of humour.
The under 12 Boys & Girls Top Four Competition will also take place in Virginia College but on the 1st April (and no, this isn’t a joke either 🙂 )
We look forward to welcoming all the NEBB clubs to our humble abode and I’m sure our support over both weekends will be excellent.
