Missing Jerseys There is an ongoing problem in the Club as regards jerseys going missing after matches. The problem lies mainly with the sponsored ones with the Mazda and Citroen Logos. It is now the intention of the club to get back as many of these jerseys as possible in order to get sets ready for next year. At a recent Executive meeting it has been decided that once a team has been issued a set of jerseys (or 2) at the start of the year they are then responsible for keeping that set. If at any stage a jersey goes missing it will be up to the team captain to collect a levy from the players to cover the cost of the jersey. This practice of removing jerseys from the club has to cease as it is an unnecessary expense for the treasurer and the club. So once again if you have either of the jerseys for whatever reason you can give them back to the Equipment Officer. (087/2039726)
Pitch Maintenance An exceptional spend has arisen within the club to complete essential maintenance on the pitches which must be completed in the next 6 weeks. In order to fund this exceptional expense the Executive has decided to seek a minimum of €5 per Membership. All club members are invited to support this essential repair work . Payment can be made to any member of the club Executive or left behind the bar in an envelope marked Pitch Fund and your Name.
Thank you for your support.
