Bray People - - Around The Gaa Clubs -

The ju­ve­nile club would like to wel­come all the boys and girls who reg­is­tered with the club to­day to the club for 2009.

Over 220 chil­dren at­tended on the day, with 65 of them new to the club, and this fig­ure when com­bined with the cur­rent mem­bers un­able to at­tend means the club will build on the im­pres­sive growth shown last year. Fi­nal ju­ve­nile num­bers will be avail­able by the end of the month when all teams are back in train­ing.

Many thanks to all who helped make the day run so smoothly, both in the prepa­ra­tion and all those who helped out at the Gael Co­laiste. A spe­cial word of thanks to Gerry Arthur who ran the ‘club crèche’ on the Astro pitch, where a game of foot­ball in­volv­ing ju­ve­nile mem­bers of all ages ran for the two hours of the reg­is­tra­tions. Gerry needed all his ref­er­ee­ing skills to keep con­trol of the large num­bers play­ing, and it was great to see all our ju­ve­nile mem­bers hav­ing fun to­gether.

The U-13 in­ter­nal league con­tin­ued on Satur­day last in icy con­di­tions, full match re­ports, re­sults and league ta­bles are avail­able on the web­site at www.ark­low­gaa.ie League con­tin­ues this Satur­day at 4 p.m. at the Astro pitch in Pearse park.

All ju­ve­nile teams are back in train­ing over the next week or two, with train­ing times and venues avail­able from club coaches and ad­min­is­tra­tors, and on the team pages on the club web­site.

Re­mem­ber all en­trants to the last man stand­ing com­pe­ti­tion has to be emailed to last­man­stand­ing. agb@ gmail. com by this Fri­day.

Our big­gest club so­cial of the year, the Ark­low Geraldines Bal­ly­money Gala Ball is on the 21st of Fe­bru­ary in the Ark­low Bay Ho­tel. This is a great op­por­tu­nity for new mem­bers to be in­tro­duced to the the club and for the dif­fer­ent sec­tions of the club to get to­gether and have a great night.

The tick­ets are €40 and this cov­ers a mulled wine and jazz re­cep­tion, a four-course meal, fol­lowed by mu­sic and danc­ing well into the early hours of the morn­ing. Please con­tact any club com­mit­tee mem­ber for tick­ets or send your en­quiry to info@ark­low­gaa.ie

The ladies had no match at the week­end due to the bad weather con­di­tions, keep an eye on the web­site for fix­tures re­gard­ing both the league and the Se­nior Cup. Fi­nally the ladies would like to say a huge thanks to Christy’s who have agreed to spon­sor both the Ju­nior and Se­nior ladies this year and the men’s would like to say a huge thank you to D’Arcy McGee’s for spon­sor­ing the men’s squad for the com­ing year.
