An Tóchar’s jer­sey day marks good year

Bray People - - News -

AN TOCHAR GAA held a jer­sey day at the Com­plex in Round­wood to cel­e­brate the clubs achieve­ments over the past sea­son.

With fan­tas­tic sum­mer weather the event kicked off as the sound stage boomed the Na­tional An­them to a stand­ing ova­tion.

The An Tochar cheer­lead­ers then took to the pitch along­side the team mem­bers from the un­der eights up to the se­nior teams as they pre­sented the blue pa­rade.

The team colours of An Tochar are navy blue and light blue and they were proudly dis­played on each mem­ber of the pa­rade in­clud­ing the teddy bear mas­cot.

The teams and cheer­lead­ers pa­raded around the pitch to the sounds of the Ar­tane Boys Band mu­sic.

Af­ter the pa­rade there was a num­ber of fun ac­tiv­i­ties for par­ents and fam­ily to en­joy.

There was penalty shoot out games, an ob­sta­cle course, kick fada and hurl­ing.

In the man­ager penalty shoot out Shay Cullen was the lucky win­ner of a large cud­dly toy.

Kids jumped as high as they could on bounc­ing cas­tles while oth­ers got creative with face paint­ing and re­fresh­ments were served all day.

Later in the af­ter­noon the teams of An Tochar were pre­sented with medals and tro­phies for their sea­sons achieve­ments by their man­agers.

The un­der eights and tens re­ceived Go Game medals and the un­der 12s re­ceived medals for com­ing sec­ond in the league.

The un­der 14s re­ceived tro­phies for winning the Shield Com­pe­ti­tion and the un­der 16s were pre­sented with a cup and medals for com­ing sec­ond in the North East Divi­sion.

It was a fan­tas­tic day out and was an op­por­tu­nity for the club to show the younger mem­bers that they have many more years open to them to play for the club.

An Tochar would also like to wish their se­nior ladies team the best of luck when, as reign­ing win­ners, they com­pete in the County Fi­nal in Aughrim this com­ing Sun­day.
