EVENTS: On Sunday afternoon the married an singles men took to the pitch for their charity match in aid of simon community. This is a charity which does endless work to help the homeless, in which we think are needed more than ever at this time of year, around Christmas.

The game started off slow, allowing the married men a chance to get up to pace. A few late tackles went in as-well, some of the married men reeling back the years. Although the young single men battled hard to grab a draw at half time. In the second half, the single men up’ed the tempo, and the married mens legs ran short. A few goals in a short space of time hindered the older married mens chance of getting a result, but to be fair, along with putting on a few extra men at times, they pulled back a couple of goals, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough for them, the singles men took the title and bragging rights for the first ‘singles vs married men’ game.

Thanks to everyone who took part, a special word of thanks to Kieran Brolly for refereeing the game.

Their was just over £1000 raised on the day for a very worth wile charity, so thank-you to every1 for their generosity as always.

With the Derry competition set for mid-February club Cultural Officer Paul Gribbin is asking those interested in representing the club to contact him sooner rather than later so as a group meeting can be arranged to confirm the entries;, we have an abundance of talent in music, song and dance within our community and we hope to enter as many disciplines as possible and showcase it in this competition, but we need help.
