Ashford Club Notes
Under 14 Football Championship
Rian Sweetman Burke gave an outstanding performance scoring 3-4 and winning Man of the Match award in the Under 14 Football Championship against Michael O’Dwyer’s in Ashford. However Rian was unable to avoid an Ashford defeat. Michael O’Dwyer’s defeated Ashford in a thriller 5-9 to 3-11. This was a highly entertaining game played from end to end with little between the teams. The half time score was 1-5 to 1-4 in favour of Michael O’Dwyer’s, however it is worth noting that Michel O’Dwyer’s scored 1-5 with zero wide’s while Ashford scored 1-4 with nine wide’s. Michael O’Dwyer’s were the better balanced side and thoroughly deserved their victory, their first touch was clinical. Ashford missed their big influential full back Donal Ring, had Donal been playing then the score might have been different. With less than five minutes remaining Ashford were behind by one point, they had two opportunities with great runs from Rian Sweetman Burke and Ross Quinn, however both players were narrowly wide and Michael O’Dwyer’s finished the game with a late goal and a point. Ashford have outstanding players in Rian Sweetman Burke, Ross Quinn, Tomas Kearns and Keane Staunton just to name four from this game. These players must be provided with the necessary package required over the next four years to bring them into our first team panel. Ashford scorers came from Rian Sweetman Burke 3-4, Ross Quinn 0-3, Tomas Kearns 0-2, Gary McCann 0-1, Evan Butler 0-1.
Ashford Team: Luke Boyce, Colm Copeland, Keane Staunton, Tomas Kearns (0-2), Cal Connolly, Ross Quinn (0-3), Rian Sweetman Burke (3-4), Adam Melia, Cormac Doyle, gary McCann (0-1), Jamie Byrne, Evan Butler (0-1), Eoghan Copeland, David Lacey, Kain Moore.

GAA GO Games Come to Ashford
Go Games come to Ashford for the first time this year on Friday 17th August starting at 6:45pm. Other participating teams are Fergal Og, Kilcoole and Kilmac.
What are Go Games: GAA Go Games are small-sided games with modified rules in both Hurling (Go Hurling) and Gaelic Football (Go Gaelic). They form a central element of GAA policy on games for children up to and including the Under-10 age grade.
The Go Games Model is defined by the following criteria:
- There is full participation for all players
- Games are organised in a non competitive way i.e. results are not recorded
- Games are small-sided
- Playing rules are modified to suit the developmental stages of the children
- Playing area is modified
- Playing equipment is modified
NB: Modifications and playing rules are at the discretion of each county.
What is the philosophy of Go Games?
The underlying philosophy where Go Games are concerned is one of full participation and fair play where each player gets to play the entire game (no subs where practical) and plays in a number of different playing positions during the course of each game. The games are small sided and the emphasis is on participation rather than the result. Go Games are not only about Fair Play in the sense that all participants should get the opportunity to participate fully in the games. They also revolve around the core values enshrined in the GAA Respect Initiative.
