The season kicks off this week with the Minors and the U16’s starting. First up are the Minors who played Bredagh last night, followed by the U16’s playing at home on Thur at 6.45pm when they face Newry Shamrocks. Next week sees the U14’s play their first match when they play away at Kilcoo on Monday 8 April.
Training moves outdoors for the Juveniles this Saturday 6 April. U-8’s and U-10’s at 10.30am and Juvenile Girls at 12.30pm, and the U-12 Boys are at 12.15pm. Everyone please bring £1 and a water bottle. There are a few jerseys missing from the juvenile team kits, particularly the U-12s. Could everyone have a look and see if they have one – all our kit jerseys will have a sponsor on them.
U-6s had a great Easter party last Saturday at the club which ended with Collie Quinn naming our new mascot Hoopie. The U-6’s recommence outdoors on 20 April.
