NDSL stars of the future

THE NDSL are running a June Blitz at the Oscar Traynor Centre on Saturday 1st June.

The blitz is for kids born in 2006/2007 only. The NDSL is aware of all the hard work being put in by our clubs at the youngest level. This is an opportunity to allow the kids to experience playing other clubs for the first time in a fun and competitive environment. The Blitz is limited to 8 teams and each team gets to play 4 matches each. Refreshments will be available and there will be free draw on the day for a "Jimmy Ball Trainer" x 2 between the competing teams. For more details ring Dave on 087-6880316 or email gameball4fun@hotmail.com

Notice to all clubs

The league will not accept any club re-arranging games with other clubs without official sanction from Gary Tolan. Otherwise games will be null and void.

Re: June Bank Holiday

There will be no SSG games from 8 to 10 yrs of age other than Cup Games. There will be a full set of fixtures for 11 to 18 yrs of age on both bank holidays.
