Grove Rangers look­ing at a re­turn to their Rath­mullen home

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

GROVE Rangers Boys and Girls Soc­cer Club are de­lighted with their recent suc­cess­ful ap­pli­ca­tion for grant aid through The Com­mu­nity En­hance­ment Pro­gramme.

The club re­ceived €10,000 which will go to­wards the ren­o­va­tion and main­te­nance of the Rath­mul­lan Park play­ing field and the re­pair of con­tain­ers for dress­ing rooms.

Rath­mul­lan was Grove’s home pitch for many years and they are look­ing for­ward to a re­turn in the near fu­ture.

The club would like to thank Louth County Coun­cil and the Lo­cal Com­mu­nity and De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee (LCDC) who awarded the grant.

Grove would also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to say a sin­cere thanks to Coun­cil­lor Paul Bell for his sup­port over many months. Coun­cil­lor Bell ad­vo­cated on Grove’s be­half and his ad­vice through­out the ap­pli­ca­tion process proved in­valu­able.

‘ Work on the field will com­mence in the com­ing weeks. It is hoped that as well as pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal boys and girls to play soc­cer in the Drogheda and Dis­trict leagues, the up­grade will en­hance this area of the lo­cal com­mu­nity,’ a spokesper­son stated.

Grove Rangers cater for boys and girls aged 5yrs-17yrs.

‘New play­ers are al­ways wel­come. We are cur­rently look­ing for boys for our U15 team (born in 2004-2005). Please con­tact the club chair­man Bren­dan Gre­gory on 0876958126 for fur­ther de­tails.’
