The Hill on the way..Blackpool Cup Easter 2013

Our Watergrasshill U14 team had an early departure this morning when their bus heading for Blackpool left the hill at 4 am.  A total of 14 players and 6 coaches/mentors were traveling this morning to the Dublin Port where they connect with the 08.05am fast ferry sailing to Hollyhead. Straight from the ferry the team will attend the Preston v Southport in their Division 1 league clash, 5pm kick off,  at the Deepdale Stadium, Preston North End FC’s home ground.

Prior to their departure all Watergrasshill United players and the 6 mentors where presented with a crested sports top sponsored by MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company. The photo below shows Adam and Chris with their new MSC sponsored gear for the Blackpool Cup 2013.
