Final call! The Club wish to arrange a date to give blood locally. We require 100 volunteers and are presently over half way there. If you or anyone you know are interested please contact Seamus 07895627522; Danny 07709611910 or Pat 07718257555.

Club membership is now overdue: Adult £20, Underage £10. Concession for third and more children £5.00 each where two adult members are paid up. Contact John Paul 07912173129. Must be paid by the end of March. Late payment will result in no ticket allocation.

All the waiting is over. Club football starts on Sunday at home to Lissan with the reserves fielding at 4.00 and seniors at 5.30. Referees Dessie Kearney and Kevin Martin. Lissan are fresh from their success in the Graham Cup with convincing wins against Ballymaguigan and Ogra Colmcille. Paddy Coey picked up two goals in the final and could be a handful. Both teams would have been in the old division four so expect a fairly even competition. Support could make all the difference so get behind the teams and cheer them on. Guest appearance of Sarsfields Accordion Band.
U 16s look forward to their first competitive game away to Greenlough on 8th April with U14 league on 13th April away to Ballymaguigan. The Minors face a long journey to Doire Trasna on 19th April.
Please note to be able to play football, membership must be paid. No exceptions!

With the interest shown so far, we will be fielding an under 16 and senior Ladies team, with the under 14s amalgamating with a local team to play in the Feile. Any further interest, please contact Anne Matterson 07732351672.
