Thanks to all the children who attended the Nursery over the last few weeks - we hope they all enjoyed it as much as we did.

U-6 training will be starting in the next few weeks depending on weather, please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details. Training for our U-8's, 10's and 12's have now resumed and will be held at our club grounds everyMonday night from 7-8pm. Details of our U-14 and U-16 training will be sent out each week via text by the coaches and as with all our teams, new players are more than welcome to join. 

Hard luck to the St. Pauls-Delvin U-14 Footballers who were narrowly beaten in their two Feile qualifier games in Kilbeggan last Saturday. In the opening game our lads lost out by 3 points in a keenly contested game against Kilbeggan/St. Joseph's who are operating in a division higher than us. Again in the second game we played some excellent football but eventually lost out by 4 points against Cill Oige (Rosemount-Castledaly) who are also operating from a higher division in the league. So it was two good performances against two good teams in the end which will give the lads good experience for 2018 going forward. Well done again to the 18 players who made the trip over and to Ray & the rest of the coaching team. Team: Senan O Driscoll, Sean Hoctor, James Murtagh, Tommy Collins,Darragh Reilly, Diarmuid Reilly,Rory Carolan, Oisin Kelly, Seb McPherson, Tiernan Purcell, Jamie Kelly, Karl McCormack, Dean Quinn, Tommy Flynn, Kyle Flynn, Cathal Cully, Cormac Tormey, Sean Mulvaney. Our U-14's next game is this coming Thursday April 12th against Tyrellspass in Tyrellspass at 6:30pm. Best of luck  to the players and coaching team. 


Well done to our U-16 footballers tonight on their first football game of the year against Inny Shamrocks in Ballinacargy. Our final score as we had it was 1-7 to 2-4 (a draw) but the referee had it as a 1 point win for Inny Shamrocks. It was a great performance by the lads considering it was their 1st game of the year and it bodes well for the season ahead.
Team - Adam Mulvany, Oisin Kiernan, Aaron Fenlon, Conor Fenlon, Joshua Doherty, Conor Norton, Jamie Reilly, Ben McCormack, Jody Browne, Oisin Moroney, Rohan Morley, Mark Cully, Ryan Forde, Conor Rennicks, Tomas Collins. 

U-16 training continues this coming Thursday evening, a text will be sent out with further details.
