Summer Camps and academy news

The Park academy continues this Saturday morning for all groups, 10:00am kick off, please arrive on time. This will be our final session before our July break so come to training before going to the beach!

We will take 3 weeks off and return on July 28th ready for action all the way to Halloween when the academy season ends.

Our summer camps are on the weeks beginning July 16th and July 30th. Registration this Saturday between 10:00am and 11:00am. Numbers are restricted so book early to guarantee your place. € 50 for one week, €80 for 2 weeks which we feel is great value.

We have received a number of recent enquiries regarding academy membership.  All enquiries to academy manager Preston McEvoy at prestommcevoy@hotmail.com

We would like to invite interested players boys and girls age 6-13 to try our summer camps and hopefully space opens up at some stage for academy membership and our league teams.

Finally the schoolboy/girls season is starting in September so from u11 upwards no soccer for now other than our camps. Updates on the league season to come later next month. Check our Facebook page for regular club updates.

 

Enjoy the fine weather this week .

JD leaves a void that will never be filled

JD leaves a void that will never be filled
At 5.20 a.m. on Thursday, June 21, 2018 John Dowling (JD) passed from this life leaving a void that will never be filled. He is survived by his loving wife Gaye, daughter Niamh, sons Tomas and Kieran, grandson Conor, sisters Mary and Catherine and brothers Elisha and Damien and Many friends.
As well as being a family man JD was a fantastic club man as hundreds of past players of St. Brendan’s Park FC will testify to. For those of us who were members of the 1974/75/76 St. Brendan’s Park FC squads we have many treasured memories of JD who always had a smile on his face. To the players lucky enough to have played with JD in that era they will remember him as always giving one hundred per cent. He was never one to carry a grudge and he was a great believer of what happened on the field stayed on the field. For many years he organised trips to Irish International Soccer matches that were played in Lansdowne Road, now known as the Aviva Stadium.
We have lost a great friend – may he rest in peace.
