Sunday was a windy day at John Mitchels but that didn’t stop David, Dylan, Daniel and Jack from coming and working hard on their skills. Megan, Sean, Tadhg and Fay made great strides in improving their skills and this showed at the end with the great game had by all. The all-weather pitch is a great asset for training and Evan, Darragh, Enda and brogan made full use of it during training and the game with great runs and splendid passing. Well done to the rest of the boys and girls as well and see you again next week with gum shields.

It was another great turnout this week for John Mitchels U8 boys and girls desipte the cold weather. This week we started with a good warm up and plenty of running to get everyone going and then it was game time. It’s great to see kids improving every week and no better way to show it than in Go Games where everyone gets a touch of the ball. Training continues next Sunday morning from 10.00am to 11.00am in our sports hall. All new comers welcome, until then everyone  KEEP ON PRACTICING !!!!

U6 Boys and Girls (Born 2012 & 2013) Indoor Hall 11.00 am – 12.00 noon

All children are invited to attend our Junevile training sessions. Even if they have never kicked a ball before the Club aims to give these kids fun, exercise, the skills to develop in football and also this training can be a fantastic confidence builder for kids from all backgrounds. They get to make friends outside of normal school circles and learn to become part of a team all under the supervision and encouragement of our Coaches and Mentoring staff. We at John Mitchels are planning a busy season for our Juveniles and we would ask parents if they have any feedback or suggestions. We are looking for parents to volunteer to give a handout on a Sunday morning and they can do so by contacting any of our Coaches or Mentors. All help would be greatly appreciated.
