Busy Time at Under-Age & New Sponsors on board ...
It’s a busy time at underage level which is great to see after a few months of Covid enforced inactivity. Our under 6s travel to The Downs tomorrow morning to face the home team; for the vast majority of our players it’s a first ever outing in a Shamrocks’ jersey. Our more experienced under 7s travel to Ballynacarrigy tomorrow morning also to play a Go-Games fixture. There’s activity in Springfield too tomorrow with our under 9s and 11s hosting Moate in Go-Games fixtures at 10.15. Our under 13s continue preparations this weekend for their semi final against Shandonagh tomorrow week and our under 15s continue to ready themselves to play Athlone in the semi-final on Sunday week, 20th. Finally, on the boys’ side, our under 17s travel to Drumraney on Sunday morning to face the combination of Garrycastle/Maryland/Tang in the championship.
On the ladies’ side, our under-8 and under-10 girls journey to The Downs this evening to face Na Dunta at 6.30. Training also continues tomorrow morning for the under 4 and under 5 boys and girls in the SeamrOGi group training and continues for our 8s and 10s tomorrow while our under 12s face Shandonagh in Springfield tomorrow afternoon at 2.00. Our minor ladies team are waiting for fixture confirmation. Our thanks to the many coaches who volunteer so willingly to help hundreds of Shamrocks’ young people to train and play and have fun.
Our thanks to Pat Collins who ensures that every team takes to the pitch resplendent in the green and white jerseys. Pat’s washing machine and dryer will be on overtime for the next few days.
Off the pitch it has also been a good week as we welcome new sponsors for our under-6 and under-7 squads, the underage Exec wouldd like to thank 3 local companies who have come on board, Robbie Fenton and his Company, Bricks4Kidz who is sponsoring playing tee-shirts for our u6 boys and girls, also Peter Collins and his Companies, Derravaragh Design/92NORTH Home & Design who will be kitting out our u7 boys squad with jerseys.
