Food After Training

Replying To KillingFields:  "Is it really that much of a burden? Just say chicken, pasta some salad for 25 people compare it to a night or two out drinking between drinks, taxis and whatever else. It's very much doable."
Exactly my point.

If it's a burden, no-one will do it.

The reality is it'll be a lot better for general health and fitness than a session at the pub.

I doubt if anyone is suggesting some 16 year old lad would take on the cost.

Some of the objections on here are just ridiculous. There isn't one objection on here that can't be worked around.

A lad can't cook ? Get someone else. Who'd want to eat stuff cooked by a bad cook anyway ?

Too expensive ? Chip in to a kitty and share the cost ?

Some lads have a family and kids. be hard enough justifying going out for training but staying for food as well. Other lads could be driving 90 mins and then they have to bring food with them for the team as well.
Personally i cant see that catching on at all. You want to be in, trained and showered asap and gone home.

Sure - I'm with you Border, so I am.

If the lads don't want to do it, that's grand, but don't tell me it's too hard.

We just go with a cuppa after training - brown bread, plain biscuits etc. We are lucky to have a non-playing volunteer to do this. With training generally finishing up at 10pm midweek we think this is adequate. I'm sure most clubsnot doing anything at all.
