Match Reports

This year we are hoping to get some more parents involved in the ‘admin’ side of the club. This means that we are looking for parents to help on match days by doing up team sheets and keeping a record of the score so that we can put together match report for local papers, social media, and our website. There will be a simple template for parents to use on match day. This template is easy to fill in with the team and record scores, a photo of the team sheet can be taken and sent to the appropriate person to compile a match report. If you know anyone that may be interested in helping, please contact club PRO Áine Martin on 086-3791294 or e-mail [email protected].
