Training: Continues normal this week. 

Games: As above, we have a lot of games on the pitch Saturday morning so appreciate if everyone can start on time, and therefore finish on time and be off the pitch for the next group. NB: It is important that all players must wear mouthguards for all training sessions and matches. I would recommend having spares in the car, that what I do as my kids are always forgetting them plus their water.   

Award of the week: To Rachel from the U9 girls team who recruited loads of her friends from her class.

We all know that children grow out of their gear so fast and we thought we’d ease the burden on parents by organising a second hand gear sale. For this to work, we’re asking you to donate any of your old/unwanted (clean) Stars of Erin gear over the next few weeks. You can give them to Siobhan on Thursday nights or leave them in the club shop on Saturdays and Sundays. We’ll have boxes in the shop labelled “Gear Sale” and will sort out what has been donated sanitise, wash and completed a sale list for all members.

We’re looking for·         Stars of Erin gear·         Football boots (must be in good condition)·         Hurley’s•.       Helmets•        Sports gear. The plan is to sell all this gear at affordable prices while raising money for the club.
