Rathcline Club Notes 15th June 2014

posted 20 Jun 2014, 06:00 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

The club at the moment are selling €2 scratch cards where the buyer gets a chance at winning €500. On each card there is a precise time in minutes and seconds, one person will win the money when the first goal of the world cup final is scored in July. The club at the moment is fund raising to pay off the debt incurred for installing a new pitch in Clonbonny. This debt will last a number of years and with the week to week running of the club, the executive have to fund raise throughout our parish. There is a disconnect between supporters and the club, but the executive and executives in the past and future must try and fund raise as if we don’t, there will be no club. Every parish in the country is struggling one way or another. I would ask everyone sincerely to buy a few scratch cards and take a chance, my argument is this, go out any Friday evening where Clonbonny is alive with U 6, U 8, U 10 and Ladies and Senior teams. It’s about community spirit, the same as any other team sport in the area, the dedication of volunteers at executive and coaching and management levels is there to see. All different age groups using the pitch with support from parents and friends is a sight to behold, there are future stars out there, a new generation of supporter, but it will count for nothing if we don’t have the support of the community. Anyone involved in the GAA knows it a great source of pride and achievement, the Senior, Ladies and Minor clubs are all trying their best, it can never be left to fade away, there are too many great sporting memories to be made out in Clonbonny, so again if there is someone you know that uses the pitch and is involved in Rathcline Gaa, please support the €2 scratch cards. Thanks.

There was no jackpot winner in this weeks lotto, the numbers drawn were 4, 8, 15, 18, 19, and 22. The weekly €25 winners were Mike and Anne Kenny Ballinahinch, Lorraine Farrell Aghamore, M&N Motors Newtownforbes, and Michael Kenny Newpark.
