Erin’s Own Ladies’ Football Notes


U 8 Girls
Our under 8 ladies Football team played Lisgoold in the first round of the under 8 league on a glorious sunny day at Caherlag on Sunday last May 15th.

In a tough and close game, our under 8’s put into play all the skills they have been working on since training commenced in February of this year.

The team has players aged 5 years to 8 years and the priorities are fun and friendship. New members are welcome at any time, to pop up on Sunday mornings from 12 to 1.

On another lovely Saturday morning, our under 8 ladies footballers took on Inch in Caherlag. Two games were played so we could cater for the older and for the much younger players. The teams were evenly matched and this allowed for the skills to be displayed. Players, supporters and parents enjoyed the occasion.

U 10 Girls

We’re now well into the season for the U10 girls football team. We’ve been training on Sunday mornings and have started training on alternate Thursday’s now that the weather has improved. The East Cork development league has kicked off and despite two really good team performances we’ve come out the wrong side of games against Glanmire and Rockban. This Sunday sees us playing Bride Rovers away and we’re looking forward to further improvement from the team. We have 33 (yes 33!!) girls signed up this year and have had to draft in extra coaches due to the numbers at training. Some girls have been playing for a couple of years, and others have just started this year – a really great mix and there is a fantastic spirit of fun in the group. We’re still looking for more players, today’s U10 can be the next Cork Senior player – or more importantly to us – someone who has fun and enjoys playing Gaelic Football while developing lasting friendships. Please contact the coaching co-ordinator (Evan) on 087 8099003 if your daughter is interested in joining.
