Club Notes 8th October

Drumlin Credit Union SFL

Our senior team played Carrickmacross in the Drumlin Credit Union senior football league last Sunday 6th October and the Carrickmacross outfit emerged as winners by six points in an entertaining and high scoring encounter that was played in slippery but humid conditions. There was plenty of wholehearted effort and attacking spirit from the lads but ultimately, two penalties during the second half proved decisive and the difference as Carrickmacross quickly seized the initiative and opened up a lead that they would never relinquish and secured the spoils on a final score-line Rockcorry 1-17 Carrickmacross 4-14.

Charity Beard Shave

As you all know, one of our leading players and all-time greats Anthony “Tayto” Tate will be celebrating his 40th birthday on Saturday 19th October. Along with celebrating the big FOUR ZERO Anthony wanted to do something meaningful and worthwhile and has decided to go down a different road and raise money for charity by holding a sponsored beard shave with all proceeds being donated towards two charities, namely the Irish Heart Foundation and the Cootehill Community Cancer Support Group. Along with Anthony, three other brave men, Dwayne Rooney, Martin Carroll and Aidan Sheridan have decided to take the plunge and not shave for the next three weeks and they will get their mighty whiskers shaved all for name of charity.  They all have sponsor cards and you will also see sponsor cards in local shops and pubs so please donate whatever you can afford to these very deserving and worthy charities.  It’s guaranteed to be a night to remember.
