Trim Celtic’s production line of stars fo the future begins with the U6’s & U7’s who turn out every Friday night in the Boyne Community School to learn the basics of ‘the beautiful game’. Haven taken over recently from Aoibhin Lennon & Paul O’Keane as the official in charge, Tom FitzGerald supervises the scores of young boys & girls who turn up each week assisted by John Gibson & some volunteers from the many parents who come along also.
‘The Club’s excellent record in the local NECSL Seven-a-Sides leagues at U8, U9 & U10 in recent years is due in no small measure to all the excellent groundwork done in our Fun Club & great credit is due to those who have organised & run it since it was established. This is non-competitive fun football for youngsters which is focused entirely on the enjoyment aspect – precisely what they need at this age as they start out to play football’ – Des Clancy, Club Secretary. ‘After they finish with the Fun Club they will graduate to our Sevens Club & thereafter to our Schoolboy Club which caters for players from U11 to U17.
We are still very keen to enrol new boys & girls born in either 2002 or 2001 for this year’s Fun Club. Anybody interested should make contact with Tom FitzGerald at 046 94 37479 or 087 617 8241.
