Kicking skills competition to showcase Cork’s best young talent

Rebel Óg Coaching have just announced details of a football skills competition for underage club players.
Aimed at u 12,13 & 14 age groups, the competition is designed to test players kicking abilities off both right and left feet. The test is simple to set up and each player gets 5 kicks from his left and right leg, 10 kicks in total.
All clubs are encouraged to set up the test and run it at their club grounds on or before the 27th September. The top 3 players from an age group are then put forward to a Divisional final to be held on or before the 11th October. The county finals will take place among the 8 Divisional winners on the week ending the 25th October.
Co Op Superstores have come on board as sponsors of the event and we would encourage all members to support this organisation where possible.
Clubs should organise a date between now and the 27th September for all their u 12, 13 & 14 players to compete in the skills test. The test details is attached on this e mail.
The top 3 players in each age group should then be nominated to go forward to the Divisional finals as a team to represent the club. This can be done by completing the form om the link below.
Rebel Óg Coaching strongly recommends against clubs just picking 3 players without actually allowing all interested players to participate internally first.

Cork Hurling and Football double – 30 years ago

Sunday September 16th 1990 will forever be a special day in the history of Cork GAA, as the Cork Senior Footballers defeated Meath to secure the All-Ireland title to go along with the All-Ireland victory secured by the Hurlers two weeks previous over Galway. It was especially a special time for Teddy McCarthy who secured his place in GAA history by playing in both games, and thus completing a unique double of his own.

To mark the occasion, both the Liam McCarthy and Sam Maguire trophies paid a visit to Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Tuesday where both captains from 1990, Larry Tompkins and Tomás Mulcahy along with Teddy McCarthy were on hand to meet with the Lord Mayor of Cork , Cllr Joe Kavanagh and his wife Stephanie as City Hall will be lit up in Red, as the city and county Go Red for Cork.

Later today both games will be able to view on the GAA Now platform
