PRO Notes 2.4.2017


Another successful winter training season at the Cedars centre concluded last Friday.  Our main picture shows the U6s and U8s at the end of the training session on Friday.  




Before the club got started on outdoor training for the Under 6s, 8s and 10s on Wednesday evening, a few of the lads thought it would be a good idea to check stock levels from last year.  A bright sunny Saturday lunchtime and a few hours later we had the majority of the goals built.  Maybe we should order some instruction manuals for the goals along with the spares!!  


Colin, Peter and Tim-hard at work!

U17 Youth-Well done once again to the team on becoming the inaugural winners of the U17 Development League Final by beating St Kiernans in a fantastic and exciting game.  Please see separate post earlier in the week for a brief summary.  Well done lads.
