GoGo Games: Our youngest ballers (4 – 11 years) continue to develop their skills with training each Tuesday evening from 7:00pm. All the children are having a great time and plenty of fun while making new friends as they develop their skills, thanks to all our coaches/mentors who give their time so generously. On Saturday last the children attended an U7 blitz at home in St Victors Park, the weather was brilliant and a great day was had by all the children and parents. This Saturday 20th August the U9’s will enjoy a blitz in Killany at 10:00am. Please spread the word to your friends, family, neighbours and relations, new children are always very welcome.
Seniors: The senior team are in action this coming Sunday, 21st August at home in St Victor’s Park for the second match of the group stages against Tyholland at 5:00pm.

Reserves: The reserves gave it their all in the Crawley Cup final on Saturday last, 13th August against Corduff. This was a game played at a high tempo in very hot conditions, both teams are to be commended for the high-level performance in this match. Toome played some very good football on the evening and produced some great scores. However, it was a few simple errors that lead to Corduff scoring 3 goals that meant the lads were going to have an uphill battle. Unfortunately, as brave a battle as the lads fought, they came off second best on this occasion. The lads can take a lot of positives from this game and have a lot to be proud of. This concludes the season for the reserves and we would like to thank the players and management for their commitment and dedication this year.
Golf Classic: Toome Golf Classic, Saturday 27th August. We have some fantastic prizes, ladies team prize, men’s and ladies longest drive, nearest the pin as well as an open draw for all golfers on the day. Once again, we are heading back to Ashfield Golf Club, Cullyhanna. A Team of 4 persons is set at €160, please contact Jim McArdle to secure your place on 086 600 0339. Last year this event was a huge success, and it is fair to say all the players who joined us that day really enjoyed it. Apart from being a great day, this event is a very important fundraiser for the Club as we strive to make progress on and off the field. The support shown towards the Club from local businesses was beyond words and we would once again wish to thank all those who supported us last year. Refreshments will be served on the day. Tee box sponsorship is available for €100, if you would like to sponsor a tee box, please contact Jim McArdle or Kevin McCabe on 086 044 1924. The Golf Classic provides an excellent opportunity to catch up on club matters, entertain clients, family or friends or to just meet up with friends for a great day’s golf and craic. The Club appreciates any support you can offer for this event, if you would be available to help on the day in any capacity, please let us know.
