Thankfully, despite the level 5 restrictions the club is going at almost full tilt, with all underage squads from u6 to Youths enjoying 2 sessions a week. 3G and Sand Pitch are a midweek hive of activity and every Saturday now is a Super Saturday with all squads enjoying training time at home. Thanks to all those who have complied with the Covid health and safety protocols that make this happen. The graphics attached call out the key things we have to do and remember to make sure we are all safe to play –
· To Show up, Sign up,
· No Gatherings or be Socially Distant,
· No Parking in St Anne’s,
· Drop and Go or Walk or Cycle if possible.
Membership for a few is now overdue. Thanks to all those who have signed up through www.loughdergfc.com to complete membership. Remember, you can pay in full or spread the cost over up to 6 monthly instalments. We understand that due to the pandemic there may be cases of genuine hardship. If you haven’t or can’t meet your membership subscription please consult in strictest confidence with treasurer Liam Crowe or your squad head coach. If there is a problem with payment we need to discuss it as for insurance purposes all participants need to be club members.
What comes next? – the positive is that the schoolboy / girl league have indicated a return to competitive play on 5th December, subject to it being safe to do so. We have a host of teams in cup finals and also leagues are due to commence on that date. But hey, this is 2020, we will take nothing for granted… We will be ready though!
And finally…. Thanks to all those who are supporting our club lotto week in week out. It’s to fund the addition of a second playing pitch to ensure we can continue to meet the sporting needs of our members and community. You can play from as little as €2.50 per week, all online on https://www.ourgrassroots.ie/club/loughdergfc. Every week we have a spot prize winner. The jackpot will go to somebody in our club. And the club stands to win big in the National Super Draw. We can’t do it without your support. Teamwork makes the dream work!
