The season has begun in terms of administration. One of many important meetings was held on the 13th of January by the Youth section of the club where the new committee and managers were elected for the forthcoming season. A full report will be on the website soon but a new Youth Chair was elected as Tony Griffin stood down after being at the helm and steering the club through one of its most successful periods for the last 4 years which is a marvellous testament to him. Tony has taken another role and will remain as active as always. Congratulations to our new Youth Chair, Colin McGuinness and other officers elected.
The Youth’s winter training sessions for the youngest members of the club will commence Friday 19th January from 6-7pm at Cedars Youth and Community Centre, Harrow. The club has use of the indoor facilities for U8’s and the 4G Astro Turf pitch for those up to Yr. 6. All boys and girls welcome for those new or familiar to the club. Please see the download section on the website for further details. Details of winter training for the girls and strength and conditioning training for the older youth players to be announced shortly.
The club is delighted to support and promote the recent publication of a book called ‘Seanchaí – Heartwarming stories of Irish Immigration to England in the 1950’s’. Written by Kathleen Curran who is the daughter of Tom Curran, one of our founder members. Inspired by her own parents, her childhood and stories being conveyed through the quintessential Irish humour she came across, she felt it important to record them as they are precious and would be otherwise lost. A delightful read and includes many nostalgic photos. The link to purchase the book is http://www.blurb.co.uk/books/8416465-seanchai or contact Kathleen direct for more information by email firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 07779 755507.
