Primary School Football Go Games Update – 1st & 2nd Class Blitz
The recent Primary School Football Go Games Blitz was held in 5 venues throughout the county. The venues were Monaghan Harps (Tuesday), Cloghan & Tyholland (Wednesday) and Aghabog & Corduff (Thursday). Unfortunately the blitz in Aughnamullen was called off due to bad weather conditions. The blitzes catered for 1st and 2nd class pupils. The format of the blitzes were 7 a side with the schools entering multiple teams with the main focus being participation and enjoyment for all the kids taking part.
There were 19 schools in attendance across the 3 days. The following schools attended the blitzes: Latnamard, Corcaghan, Scoil Mhuire Rockcorry, Clones NS, Killeevan NS, Carrickmacross Boys, Corduff NS, Scoil Eanna Ballybay, Annyalla NS, Doohamlet NS, Oram NS, Leitrim NS, Tydavnet NS, Knockatallon NS, Glaslough NS, Clara NS, Knockconan NS, Monaghan Boys and Threemilehouse NS. In total 55 teams took part in the blitzes. The weather was not kind to us over the three days but the kids braved the conditions displaying excellent skill and teamwork.
A special thank you must go to the teachers from all of the schools who also had to brave the weather condition and helped out in anyway possible over the 3 days. Also thank you to all of you young whistlers who officiated over the few days.
Finally thank you to the all of clubs who allowed us to use their facilities. The pitches and dressing rooms were in great condition for the kids.
This blitz wrapped up our primary school programme for the year. A massive thank you goes to all of the schools who took part in our indoor and outdoor blitzes throughout the year from everyone at Monaghan Coaching & Games.
