We are still in the process of updating our contact details, which includes e-mail addresses of all the new children and adults who joined our club this year. We hope to be able to e mail our notes to all of you all in the coming weeks. If you have new contact details, or if you are not receiving the notes and would like to- you can private message me (Deirdre O’ Sullivan) on my Facebook Page with the new details or email me at

PLEASE NOTE-that if a player gets injured at training or in a game, it is the players responsibility to inform the coach /trainer /referee AND club secretary / Insurance Officer Mike Carroll immediately. Croke Park must be notified within sixty days of incurring the injury.
Furthermore all Physiotherapy sessions must be paid directly by the player to the therapist. On producing a receipt, the club will then reimburse you the agreed amount per session. This reimbursement is for up to a maximum of eight visits per injury. Please adhere to these guidelines -No exceptions will be made.

Revised dressing room / sideline guidelines:
Please note that under age players are not permitted inside the dressing rooms prior to or after a senior game or inside the surrounding fence wire when a senior game is ongoing. This is to protect all parties involved. We ask parents and guardians to continually remind their children of this rule which will be strictly enforced. We appreciate your on going support and cooperation.

Appropriate Football Gear:
Can all underage team managers, trainers/coaches please ensure that all players representing Milltown /Castlemaine are dressed in club colours (Green and White socks and togs.)   This is to avoid any inconvenience prior to games.
We would also ask parents/guardians of players to inform their children of this County Board Rule.

Our club defibrillator is now outside the doors of the clubrooms and is available to the community.
As we are all aware, access to a defibrillator can save some one’s life.
Our club is compiling a list of qualified individuals who are competent in using a defibrillator. You never know that perhaps your own life or the life of your son/daughter/ mother / father/ brother/sister/granny or grandad may be saved some day by someone on this list.
Please contact Deirdre on 086/1703332, if you wish to place your name on the list or private message me on FB.
