Last Sunday marked the end of Senior & Reserve football for 2019 and our Promotion Playoff challenge. The committee and players want to thank our senior management team of Cathal McAnenely and Roger Keenan, the backroom team of Liam Mossey, Fergal Daly, Harry Keenan, Mark McConnell & Gabriel Treanor as well as match day physio Clare McGale! The commitment required to run a Senior and Reserve football team is huge and largely unseen and we thank everyone for their efforts over this and the last number of years!
Thank you to the teams of people who look after the players and officials after games with tea and homemade food which is so valued. We also want to thank our Senior sponsor McGuigan’s, Gortin and Reserve sponsor Mossey’s.
Finally, we want to thank our loyal fans who follow and support our teams across the county, in all weather conditions and through all score lines, win, lose or draw!
We now look ahead to 2020, hungry for success and building on the progress of the last number of years!
Put 12th December in your diaries for our Club AGM, a vital evening as our club looks to the future.
