New Year Message from our Chairman


A happy and safe new year to all our mentors, coaches, players, and volunteers. 2021 was a challenging but very active and successful year and was great to see a return to play. A huge thanks to all involved in managing this and we look forward to more great games and progress in 2022.

In terms of club development, we start the year with great progress made and the build of our new Gym and Ball wall by end of January.

Again a huge thank you to all involved in our club and looking forward to the year ahead.

Paul Donnelly
