Under 8 Go Games Blitz

A very enjoyable and exciting Go Games was held on Saturday 22nd June when our under 8 footballers travelled to Drumhowan to take part in the blitz. Despite the lousy weather conditions it was great to see so many youngsters from various clubs across the county having fun playing their games and developing their football skills. They played games against Drumhowan, Corduff, Oram and Aughnamullen and played really well and gave a wonderful display, showing great enthusiasm and showed their many talents, that they have learned from their coaching sessions. It was also wonderful to see so many parents there to support and encourage the future stars of the club and we look forward to the next blitz with huge excitement and anticipation.
