Our U-8s and U-10s had an enjoyable day out in Markievics Park on Saturday last when they took on Drumcliffe/Rosses Point. On Saturday last our stars of the future got to play in Markievicz Park, when we had 2 teams in each age group, U 8 & u10, playing against Drrumcliffe/Rosses Point. The quality of football on display was of the highest standard from brilliant goalkeeping, tenacious disciplined defending, hard working midfielders to the clinical finishing of the forwards. A feature of our teams was the versatility of all the players who were comfortable whether their position was either in a defensive or attacking role during the games. Sligo Games manager Liam óg Gormley complimented all our players on the respectful nature displayed as well as noting the high skill level shown by all. It was very satisfying for our own coaches to see the brilliant combinations between the various players, it was especially encouraging to see all the players putting the skills learned over the last number months into practice with some scores of the highest quality. All of the children are a credit to their parents and are a joy to work with. The coaches, Niall , Ian, Kevin, David and Fintan would like to thank all the parents who helped out during the year especially David Bailey on Saturday as well as those who helped with the u6's and the parents who helped out with the coaching in the hall over the winter.We still have one more game against Eastern Harps at home as well as a blitz in Both Tubbercurry and Cloonacool in July.
Hard luck to Tracy O'Hara, Claire Colleran and the rest of the Sligo Ladies team as they lost out to Roscommon at the weekend in the Intermediate. This result does not affect the teams progress into the Connaght Final as they already overcame Leitrim. The team play Roscommon again in the Intermediate Final on Sunday the 14th of July in Tuam at 2pm.
A very successful Cúl camp is taking place at our home grounds this week. Thanks to co-ordinator Stephen Henry and local coaches for making the week such an enjoyable for the young children of our club.
