Senior Football.  The end of the hibernation season is upon us and training for those who intend playing senior or reserve football this year will commence on Friday evening 11th at 8.00 p.m.  The hard work in early season always pays dividends later in the year and the teams will have to hit the ground running owing to the changes in format for competitions. Be on the field at eight sharp!!!!!

Sports First Aid Course.  This course will commence in Ballybay Sports Centre on Saturday 19th February and is focussed on those mentors who will be helping with both juvenile and senior teams. The club will cover the cost of the course and further information can be got from the secretary. This should prove to be a very valuable course for those involved with all grades of football.
