Towns Cup 2nd Round
Athy 1st XV 7 - Gorey 29
Athy 1st XV hosted Gorey today in the 2nd round of the Bank of Ireland Provincial Towns Cup. Athy RFC hosted a function for former club players and members in the recently refurbished upstairs of the club house before the game. The general feeling amongst the crowd was of optimism, after all “anything can happen on Cup day”.  Clear skies and a strong Icey wind blew from the club house end towards the bottom corner of the main pitch in The Showgrounds. Athy started with a mix of youth and experience with the strong wind at their back and receiving the kick off. An early exchange of line outs was won by Gorey from which they launched an early attack up the centre of the pitch with a strong run from their number 13.


Another huge weekend for our Senior Mens 1st XV as they take on Gorey in the 2nd Round of the Bank of Ireland Provincial Towns Cup. Make sure you get up there early to support the team on what is going to be an exciting home fixture!

Rescheduled 1st Round of the Bank of Ireland Provincial Towns Cup to take place this Sunday in Tullamore at 3pm. Please note the change in kick-off time.
