Lots going on from now to the end of the year, some on but mainly off the pitch.
On the pitch all squads are training on 12th December with a revised schedule bringing the kids to Clarisford. Training will continue as normal up to the 19th December before taking a break for the Christmas holidays. Traditional coaches and kids' kickabouts may fall foul to covid. We will have to see.
Off the pitch there is so much going on, all intended to finish the year out strong and get ready for a bright future in 2021.
Saturday 12th sees out Christmas Stall in Clarisford HQ. We have a customized Lough Derg FC Christmas Card for all our families, pop by and collect yours. We will also be launching our club video with some of our youngest stars playing a blinder. Grab a cuppa and a nibble and have a chat. In a year of staying apart, getting to say hello to our friends, supporters and club mates is a treat!
On the stall you can buy some stocking fillers – hats, snoods, facemasks, shinguards and other bits and bobs. Cash is preferable on the day. There is also a football boot upcycling desk. Wanna donate boots in good nick, please do. Wanna take a pair and breathe new life – help yourself! If the boot fits, wear it!
