Mac­room FC to host FAI’s top brass at AGM

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

OVER the last decade, the FAI have been hold­ing their an­nual gen­eral meet­ing in a dif­fer­ent county and in 2018 Cork will be tak­ing its turn. In sim­ple terms the FAI will de­camp from Ab­bottstown from Au­gust 1018. And one ex­cit­ing as­pect are vis­its to af­fil­i­ated clubs by FAI del­e­gates, man­agers and for­mer se­nior in­ter­na­tion­als. The great news for Mac­room FC is that it has been cho­sen as one of the clubs that will host the FAI.

This ma­jor event will take place on Au­gust 16 and will in­volve the un­veil­ing of plaques com­mem­o­rat­ing the club’s 40th an­niver­sary and a re­mem­brance plaque for de­ceased mem­bers.

FAI CEO John De­laney will be in at­ten­dance along with Pres­i­dent Tony Fitzger­ald. Other top-level of­fi­cials pos­si­bly, in­clud­ing the cur­rent se­nior men’s man­age­ment team and for­mer se­nior in­ter­na­tion­als, will also be vis­it­ing Mac­room.

This is a huge oc­ca­sion for the club and is an ideal way to show­case the fine fa­cil­i­ties, large play­ing num­bers and the many tire­less vol­un­teers that con­trib­ute to our ex­cel­lent club.

Mean­while, the club’s Un­der­age Awards Evening will take place at the River­side Park Ho­tel at 8pm on June 28. All teams from U12-U16, along with their par­ents, are in­vited to at­tend. Player of the Year, Top Scorer and Most Im­proved Player will be pre­sented to all teams and medals will be col­lected by the suc­cess­ful teams from the 2017/18 sea­son.

U14 Pro­mo­tion:

The U14 di­vi­sion 1 side en­ter­tained Col­lege Corinthi­ans at Mur­ray­field know­ing vic­tory would se­cure pro­mo­tion. The home side were com­pletely on top and ran out easy winners by 8-0. They will now com­pete at the top level in the Premier league for the 2018/19 sea­son. Well done to all play­ers and their man­age­ment team of Noel Leahy, Dave Martin and Andy Mor­gans.

U15 Pro­mo­tion Hunt:

This team are ag­o­nis­ingly close to pro­mo­tion. A 3-2 home win over Wil­ton Utd has Mac­room in pole po­si­tion and they need just one more point to be guar­an­teed of ‘go­ing up’. A great re­sponse from this team fol­low­ing the re­cent dev­as­tat­ing loss in the Neil Welch cup fi­nal.

The U7, 8 and 9 groups have now com­pleted their play­ing sea­son. It was a hugely en­joy­able year for all the play­ers and the large in­ter­est is great to see.

Academy News:

The last few weeks were par­tic­u­larly good as the fine weather lent it­self to great fun at Mur­ray­field. The U10s and U11s also fin­ished up by hold­ing a ‘World Cup’ at Mur­ray­field.

Close to pro­mo­tion: Mac­room FC U15 team fol­low­ing vic­tory over Wil­ton Utd at Mur­ray­field.
