UNDER 10 TRAINING for BOYS AND GIRLS

Easter Saturday, 26th April sees the start of the season for our under 10 boys and girls, with training from 10.30 to 11.45 at the Burn Road.  And don’t forget your gumshields, they are mandatory at training and at games.

PITCH

The pitch is opened in a limited capacity until maintenance work has been completed, and hopefully with a bit more sunshine we will see some grass growing.  In the meanwhile, all managers are asked to note that the field is for ball work and matches only.  Kevin McCafferty has very kindly made a field available adjacent to the pitch for warm-ups and drills, and all teams, home and visiting are asked to warm-up in Kevin’s field for the year.

REFEREES

We are seeking to recruit both underage and senior referees, anyone interested, please contact any member of the Executive.

CHILD PROTECTION TRAINING
We will be running a child protection training course in the near future.  Anyone coaching any team or holding a position within the club needs to be a registered club member, and undertake child protection training.

LOTTO

This week’s draw takes place in Nora’s in Kilmacrennan with Joe O’Connell and Pauric Hilferty co-ordinating.
