Rathcline Club Notes 6th March 2016

posted 7 Mar 2016, 14:18 by Rathcline Public Relations Officer

Defibrillator course – Something that has made us all become conscious in the club following the recent incident with Leitrim U21 player Alan McTague is the value and the ability to use the defibrillator. Training will commence soon and the club urges members from the senior and minor clubs as a matter of urgency to sign up for the new training course and also for the new course and also those that need recertification to sign up. Booking your place for either course can be done with Martina O’Brien at the shop 3321107. Please do so immediately as this is a much needed safety requirement for the club

Senior football - The senior football campaign begins for our Reserve League team on Saturday next when the lads travel for the first time this season to play St. Patrick’s Ardagh/Moydow in Keenan Park Ardagh at 5.15pm. Every player eligible for Reserve League is asked to be in the dressing room in Ardagh no later than 4.30pm. Please come along and support.

Membership is immediately due from all players and also from intending members. We have a narrow deadline for collection and everyone should make their membership to Peter Skelly, Denis Crinigan or Brendan Rhatigan immediately

50/50 Draw – Congratulations to E & M Mc Weeney, Curraghroe, who was the winner of €400 in our 50/50 draw last Monday night. Congratulations Eileen and Mary, they say luck comes in threes and as this is your second win in local draws in recent weeks perhaps it is time to do the Lottery. A reminder that the 50/50 draw takes place every Monday night at 9pm and envelopes are available in all local businesses for only €2. This draw is one of our main sources of income which helps run the club so we would be grateful for your generous support.

DVDs of Variety Show – DVDs of our recent variety show are available now in O’Brien’s for €10. We had great feedback about the show from so many who attended on the night so if you want to see the show again or for the first time now’s your chance to get your hands on the DVD.
The Under 16 team has played three games in the Leinster League, winning two against Tullamore and Mullingar shamrocks and unluckily going down to St. Vincent’s/St. Francis.
Our U14 Division 3 game scheduled for Sunday was postponed. Our Special Minor squad opened their campaign on a losing note against St. Patrick’s Óg/Moydow on Sunday morning.
Fixtures - On the fixtures front our U14 Div. 1 team will play St. Patrick’s Ardagh in Dunbeggan on Saturday at 3pm. Our U14 Div. 3 team will travel on Saturday to play Southern Gaels in Cashel at 3pm.
