U16 LEAGUE CHAMPIONS!:
Congratulations to our amalgamated U16 Ladies, St Brigid’s (Ballyhegan/Clonmore) & management team including our own Kieran McKeever. The girls followed our senior ladies triumph last week to win their league this week. The future of ladies football in the club looks bright, well done!
This Saturday’s trip to Donegal has had to be hastily re-arranged. The original hosts Naomh Colum Cille have a championship replay this Saturday and their coaches are playing so can’t host us. Fortunately Eoghan Rua in Coleraine have agree to let us field two U12 teams in their annual Tournament this Saturday. They have also gone to the considerable effort to arrange an U9 tournament to accommodate our younger players. This is an outstanding effort on their part and our thanks go to all at Eoghan Rua who have made this possible. As a result the Bus will now leave the Clubhouse at 9.15 sharp in order to get to the tournament on time. All those players who are confirmed as going should be at Ballyhegan for 9.00am on Saturday 1st Oct. They should bring a packed lunch and a change of clothes. We hope to have the bus back at Ballyhegan at 6.30pm. Anyone who has not yet paid their £5 should bring it on Saturday morning. Due to the over subscription for places anyone who has not paid cannot travel on the coach. Please contact Paul Doherty [+44 7789 753509] with any queries.
A fund raising Quiz night will be held in McKeever’s Bar Portadown, Friday October 7th—”Throw-in” 8.30pm.
£5 entry fee. Please spread the word amongst your friends!
Married Men v Single Men:
Some of you will have to take it easy at the quiz night, as the much anticipated annual Married Men v Single Men exhibition is fixed for Saturday October 8th—7pm. Anyone interested in playing please contact Mark McKeever.
Clubrooms clean up!:
Thanks to all those volunteers who helped clean up last week!

A clothing bank now resides in the club car park. This is a new initiative to raise cash for our club, so we’d like to urge our members & local community to deposit any unwanted clothes and textiles. The items will then be exported across Europe and Africa. By doing so the club will get a donation for every bag of clothes recycled. Thank-you in advance for your help and support.
ACCEPTED ITEMS INCLUDE:
o All types of Clothing (Adult, Children & Baby)
