Liver­pool Visit

TWO very happy teams from Shankill Girls U15 foot­ball club got to visit Liver­pool re­cently.

On the tour they played four games. They played ex­cep­tion­ally well con­sid­er­ing the cold weather

The team would like to thank all those who made it hap­pen for them too many to men­tion to in­clude all lo­cal shops su­per­mar­kets and ho­tels who kindly made do­na­tions for raf­fles at Wood­brook col­lege and Brady’s pub

Man­agers Karl Bruner Wally Batt and Paul O’Brien who give 100 per cent to the teams at all times.

They have in­spired the girls to play to the best of their abil­i­ties and to com­mit to be­ing part of Shankill Foot­ball Club.

The team motto is ‘hon­esty, hard work and de­sire’. This is borne out by the work ethic dis­played by the girls.

The girls worked hard to raise funds for the trip to the UK to train with the Liver­pool Premier League Girls. The 25 team mem­bers live in the lo­cal­ity, in­clud­ing Shankill, Cabin­teely, Bally­brack and Bray and this was their first trip away as team.
