U16 Derry Hurling Sevens

March 30th, 2011

On Sunday 20th March the annual under-16 hurling 7s was held in Claudy. The games were played on Claudys excellent new 3G pitch facility which proved to be the perfect venue for the competition. 7 clubs in all took part, there were two groups with the top 2 teams from each section going into forward to the semi finals.

In the semi-finals Lavey proved too strong for Swatragh whilst Na Magha defeated Banagher. The final again was an excellent game of hurling with Lavey coming out on top against Na Magha on a score line of 4-5 to 1–5. Overall Lavey were deserving winners, they combined strong running and economical use of the ball throughout the day which other teams could not match. The winning team got a set of club Derry jerseys as the prize for the winning the competition. Congratulations to Lavey and well done to all the clubs who took part.
