The Darragh Frain Memorial Cup will take place on Saturday August 31st 2019. This will be the third year of the tournament and there are 12 teams competing on the day from Roscommon & Galway. St. James’ (3 teams), Barna (2 teams), Milltown (1 team), Claregalway (2 teams) and Elphin/ Ballinameen (2 teams) and St. Michael’s (2 teams) are the clubs that will participate on the morning. The club are looking forward to this annual event in memory of the one and only ‘Frainers’. Darragh was a young man who gave his life to the G.A.A. and the St. James’ club are continuing to acknowledging his memory and legacy on Saturday August 31st.

The minor team crashed out of the Galway Minor ‘A’ Championship last week. The Jimmies were defeated by a strong Oranmore/Maree side in Oranmore. On a positive note the entire team except for three players are all on the age for next year. Many thanks to Ronan McNulty and his management team for their input all year and also to the players, parents and supporters. Roll on 2020 for this squad. Tuam Stars defeated St. James’ in the Galway SFC, 4-15 to 2-09. A very disappointing result for the Jimmies to say the least. They play their final group game against Annaghdown in 2 weeks time and they must win in order to avoid a relegation dogfight.

The club are hosting a main fundraising event on Saturday September 21st @7pm in the Galway Greyhound Track. ‘A Night at the Dogs’ is the main event and a buster ticket on the evening is 20 euro to purchase. It is free admission for U16s. Lots of prizes to won at this event. The club need your utmost support and would appreciate your contribution. At St. James’ we cater for a wide range of teams and are a progressive club that has a vision and strategic plan. We need your support in order to achieve our goals. So come along on September 21st and join us for a night that will not disappoint.

Well done to the James’ U-15 team & management who had a comprehensive win 2-15 to 1-3 over Spiddal last Friday in the County ‘A’ league. That’s 4 wins from 4 and the Jimmies have now qualified for the final. Well done to the Galway City/West team on reaching the semi-finals of the Ted Webb tournament. Unfortunately for the tribes they were defeated by Galway North. Mattie done the club very proud and started wing back in the quarter final and semi-final. Despite losing, Galway City/West are still in with a chance of winning silverware and will face Mayo in the shield final which will be played next Friday evening at Bekan.

St. James’ are teaming up with Noggin Sport in promoting mental health awareness. If one would like to purchase a beanie hat please contact David Henry on 087-4311905
