As the football season is starting to near it’s conclusion, now might be a good time to ask parents and supporters to think about what you can do to help our club now, during the summer and next season.
You might not want to coach, but might see a need for better organisation, better equipment, better communication, more and better match reports, more and better club photographs etc … we’d love you to be the person to help us get better.
Remember, we have multiple teams at all levels, U6, U7, U8, U9, U10 in the academy, U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16 in the schoolboys league, U17, Youths, Senior in the KDL and even the Over-35’s. Every committee member, coach, photographer, facebook, website, twitter and text administrator are all roles filled by volunteers and we always need and welcome more.
If you would like to see where your help can make us that bit better, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to start the conversation.
In a little over 2 years, we’ve easily surpassed the incredible figure of 100,000 hits.
This is an amazing achievement and shows what a great football club we have. Thanks to the coaches who have been supplying match reports and a big thank you to those who have taken the time to manage the site.
Another weekend, another title! Congratulations to our U15’s on winning their Premier League in dramatic circumstances this weekend.
Their 3-2 win over Killarney Celtic sounds dramatic enough, but add in the fact that the lads were 2-0 down, makes their League title success all the sweeter. Fair dues to the lads, their coaches and all supporters who travelled to see us clinch another league title.
It’s great to see our teams playing the “beautiful game” … well, beautifully, with our pass and movement approach at all levels winning out over the direct approach.
Congratulations also to our seniors teams on 2 great wins. First off the B’s won their cup replay away to Killarney Athletic and of course our A’s win today means they make their 3rd league final in 3 years. A fantastic achievement for a great set of players and management team. Good luck next Sunday lads.
So, to date, we have won league titles in U14, U15, U16, U17 and Youths, along with cup success at U16 and our Seniors winning the Greyhound Bar cup. What a brilliant club we have!
