St Malachy’s Hurling Club officials have launched a recruitment drive designed to boost numbers.

Weekly training sessions have been organised for players aged 5-12 years old to introduce a future generation to the sport.

Everyone is welcome to visit Seagoe Indoor 3G Sports on Sundays from 12-1 o’clock or the Moy Road-based St Malachy’s club grounds each Tuesday from 7-8 o’clock.

“We are in the process of putting together a player development plan to help improve the skills of young players who want to try out the sport,” said a club spokesman. “The plan will also allow the club to cater for players of all ability levels.

“All players are very welcome, from all backgrounds irrespective of previous hurling experience.

“The sessions are delivered by qualified coaching staff.”
