Playing Pitches

We wish to remind all team mentors that the playing facilities must be booked in advance. Given that the club caters for over twenty teams and host numerous club games during the season it is essential that we manage this in an organised fashion to ensure that all teams get an opportunity to avail of the facilities. We also ask that players and mentors be mindful of weather conditions and not to use the pitches in periods of inclement weather conditions such as those experienced during the recent winter storms.

With the imminent redevelopment of juvenile pitch about to commence, further pressure on training space will be a feature of the season. We ask for everyone’s patience in this while this important development work is undertaken.
