Weekly Notes 13 September 2015.

Saturday past was the last Saturday morning coaching session of the season for Nursery, P1, P2, P3 and P4 plus U8 and U10 girls.  The session finished with a party, and the club would like to thank those coaches and parents who have helped out all year.  If any parent would like to help out in any way with underage coaching, please get in touch with John O’Neill.  A special thanks goes to three of our senior footballers, Aidan Burns, Sean Dornan & Michael Cunningham, for helping out on the day.  Photos of the morning are up on the club’s website, www.castlewellangac.com
