Niamh Myers Previews Carnew Emmets v Bray Emmets In The 2020 Wicklow Senior Hurling Championship County Final
2020 has being a worldwind year with many highs and lows so far.. We were happy with the meaningful championship format that was implemented this year in regards to the football and hurling championships. The format that was adapted by county board and fixtures threw up a few humdinger of games for all involved. We must give credit to the people involved from County Board officials to the players and management of teams. Even when the government decided to prevent supporters from attending games Wicklow GAA introduced the professional streaming services which helped to ensure every supporter could get to see their teams do battle. Even clubs must be complimented on their introduction to the live streaming of games.
Our first game of the Hurling championship seen us edge out St Patrick’s on a score line of 0-17 to 0-14. There was a few debutants on the day which proved their worth on the starting team and the substitutions also ensured that they were worth their introduction. Kiltegan game didn’t exactly go to plan as we faced a very competitive team which resulted in a draw for us. We then had to face Eire Og in the Semi final and it was a tight first half but our lads were able to push on in the second half. We are certainly the underdogs heading into this county final tomorrow but I’m confident that James and his management team will have their matchups correct and I feel if we can get on top in the middle third that we will get the result that we are waiting 11 years for. Even in a time of unknown it is great to see the community of Carnew getting behind the women last weekend and now the men this weekend in their respective county finals. The buzz around the town is unreal and hopefully we will be able to bring back the Senior Hurling Cup to Carnew for the 20th time. My prediction will be a Carnew win of course. #CarnewAbú 💙💛🇺🇦
