Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club Notes 13/02/2019

Club Awards Night – Our annual club awards night takes place this Saturday 16th February at 8pm in the Bee Park Community Centre. Our Feile boys team, our U16 championship-winning girls team and our senior men and ladies league winning teams will receive their medals on the night and we will also announce our players of the year and club person of the year.  Everyone is welcome to join in our night of celebration.

Leitrim – A great weekend for Leitrim football with our senior men and women both winning at home.  It was great to see such good support for the two teams but such a pity the games clashed as we all need to row in behind both teams.

Registration Night – Thank you to everyone for registering to become a fully paid up member of our club last Friday night.  We will be holding our last Registration Night for all players and supporters to pay their membership this Friday the 15th from 6.30 to 8pm upstairs in the Gym at St Clare’s Comprehensive School.  All club players must pay their membership before the last day of February in order to train and play with the club.  Membership rates for the 2019 season are as follows:  U10 Girls & Boys –  €30 for 1st Child & remaining family members at this age group €20 each.

A family membership rate of €120 max per family has been introduced for the coming season.  This applies to families who are registering their juvenile players who are under the age of 18 and the parents/guardians.

U13 and U17 Leagues – Good luck to our U13 teams who kick off their league campaign against Mohill away this Saturday the 16th at 3pm and 4.15pm and to our U17s who have a home game against St Marys on this Sunday the 17th at 12pm in Boggaun.  Please show your support.

Connacht Champions – Huge congrats to St Clare’s Comprehensive School girls football team who were crowned Connacht Junior B champions on Saturday last in Swinford defeating a highly rated Glenamaddy Community School in an epic encounter.  A fantastic achievement for the Leitrim school with the team made up of players from counties Leitrim and Cavan.  They have now won consecutive D, C and B Connacht titles and will play the Leinster champions in the All Ireland semi-final in March.

Gaelic4Girls – Glencar Manorhamilton Ladies Club is delighted to announce details of an exciting new programme for our club called Gaelic4Girls.
