★Johnny Mulligan appointed as Senior Ladies football Bainisteoir★
First of all, we would like to acknowledge the successes of the Senior Ladies in 2016, winning the Division 5 League and reaching the Junior B Final and the contribution made initially by Tommy & Fionn (helping with training) and ultimately with Ben Bennett taking the reins and helping girls deliver the performances, spirit and teamwork required to win matches. Following Ben’s retirement/sabbatical from the game, we have recently appointed Johnny Mulligan (who comes with a pedigree of successes with various clubs) and Gavin McDowell (strength & conditioning coach).
In order to ensure a big squad for training we have combined Minor & Senior squads and kicked off season with a ‘meet & greet’ meeting with Johnny. We were delighted with the turnout with Chairman introducing Johnny and welcoming him to Celbridge, expressing desire to build on momentum from 2016 season, with commitment, attitude & effort in training being a key to continued success in 2017. Johnny addressed the squad and there was palpable excitement about plans, management structures and the challenges that face the team in 2017.
The squad kicked off season with first training session held on Friday.
Training will be every Tuesday & Thursday from next week, with first game on 28th February (awaiting final fixtures list with opposition & timings)
We look forward to upcoming season and would call on all club members, family & friends to get out & support the Ladies in their pursuit of another League & great Championship run.
