Sligo notes 03.10.2013

As the adult games are coming to an end we wish the following teams all the best in their quest for Connacht glory.  Sligo have St. Mary’s competing in the Junior with St. Nathys confirmed for the Senior and the Minor competitions which the winners of St. Michaels and Tourlestrane will compete in the Intermediate group stages.  Connacht group stages start this coming week end the 5th October with the minors and juniors out on the field.

Sligo entered the Connacht Development Blitz in Ballyhaunis recently with U13 and U15 teams competing. 28 U15’s played and acquitted themselves well on the field while the U13’s crowned the day with 48 players and performed very well.  The County board wishes to thank Sean Kilgannon and Tracy O’Kennedy for coordinating each group but with that number of players they had to recruit assistants Paul & Elaine Healy, & Claire Colleran helped with the U15’s and with the U13’s were Tommy Oates, Gerry O’Connell, Tommy Rooney, Maureen Walsh & Lisa Melly.  We sincerely thank them for making themselves available on the day.

At the recent County Board meeting it was decided to advertise for the management positions for County Teams for 2014.  The positions available are open to all individuals, which will cater for U12, U14, U16, Minor & Adult teams.   There are very good players in our County and we need to help develop them and keep them in football and the only way to do that is to have interested and energetic people managing them.  Please make contact with someone from your local club who will give you the details on how to make a Submission or you can contact Louise O’Donnell on 087 6356679.  Submission must be registered by the 9th of October to be assessed and passed for the upcoming County board meeting.

The next County Board meeting will take place on Monday 14th October at 8.30pm.  All clubs are asked to send their required number of delegates.
