U13 Season update

We finished last season just short of getting promotion to the Premier Division, in hindsight it was probably for the best as we were short a couple of players to compete at that level.

The high point of our year was our trip to Holland to compete in a European tournament. There was a lot of fund raising involved in this and once again we take this opportunity to thank all the local businesses who supported us, and the shops who let us on to their premises for collections. The parents and other club members who got involved in a quiz night out, the bright spark who came out with the bright idea to get sleeping bags in Heatons will forever be close to our heart's! The Holland trip was a fantastic experience for all the kids and the adults who came with us to help out..we had good laughs and it has to be said once more that a lot of credit goes to Rob for all the background work that he put into the entire event,thanks again Rob.It was a great achievement to lose 1 out of 6 games and we did our club proud.

We started the season with 2 new players who have settled in nicely and have strengthened our squad. We are well placed at this point in time to gain promotion and remain unbeaten in league and cup competitions. We qualified out of our section for The National Cup and we have drawn Ardee Celtic from County Louth in the last 32 of this competition. This will be played at the end of January and please come out to support us on the day.

So to finish we would just like to thank the lads for all their dedication to training,there in all weather and always wanting to stay longer and always great to work with. Thanks to the parents for putting up with the all consuming U13 football team and ever thing else takes second place as far as the lads are concerned.

Special thanks to those parents who always volunteer to help out with special events teas/coffees,selling tickets,fundraising,your help is invaluable to us and is greatly appreciated.

Enjoy your Christmas Paddy & Marcus
