Dear Club Member,
We are getting to the end of the year in many respects but there is still lots going on in the Club.
Ballinrobe play Ardnaree Sarsfields in the quarter-final of the Mayo U21 C football championship on Sunday next, November 22, at 11am in the Connacht GAA Centre of Excellence, Bekan. Ref Mel Kenny, Westport.
Next Sundays game will also be streamed live here; If you follow the link within our website, Liam Horan has the whole thing ready to go
This service is proving very popular, with club members all over the world being able to tune in to all our games recently, so please spread the word. And for those closer to home, it would be great to see a big local support for the Senior teams final game of the year.
Along with this, Our new Pella Indoor League continues on every Wednesday night for the ladies and every Friday night for the boys.
This fulfils one of the key planks of our coaching plan, namely to play football virtually all year round. Des May and his organizing team have put a lot or work into getting this up and running, so if you are around the locality, please make an effort to call to the Lakeside Sports Centre to have a look at our young players availing of this new initiative within the club.
The full details including time tables, teams and fixtures can be found here; http://ballinrobegaaclub.com/our-pella-indoor-league-about-to-kick-off/
