Thanks to Cllr Paul Donnelly and our Director of football Colin Hawkins who presented the medals and trophies. Today we had DJ Ken Tucker entertaining everyone with his popular music. Our bouncy castle assault course was very popular with the children and most of them were exhausted, leaving Porterstown after a fun packed day. It's a huge operation to organise the mini leagues and we would like to take this opportunity to thank some people. Thanks to all our members and volunteers who turned every night, and ensured all the games ran smoothly. Our club can't function without volunteers giving up some of their valuable time. Thanks to our schoolboy secretary Jim Darcy for all his hard work and dedication. Well done and thank you to our Senior players Brian Fitzpatrick, Gavin Smith, Stephen Deegan, Aaron O' Brien and Cian Cronin from our Under 17's who coached some teams and also referred games.
Our groundsmen have done a superb job all year and it's a lot of work to keep the pitches in perfect condition. Well done to Ger Smart, Brian Mallon and Mick Gahan. The lads have worked extremly hard on the pitches all season and they are a credit to the club with their dedication.
Our shop was extremely busy and Vinny and Trevor had a warm welcome for everyone every night and on a very busy final day. Thanks to our BBQ staff who kept everyone well fed with burgers and hot dogs. Well done, Tina and Damien, Jackie who did a superb job for the duration of the Mini Leagues. Thanks to Mark Kelly for sponsoring our delicious burgers and hot dogs.
A massive, thanks to Dave Reel and Robert Christopher for their efficiency and professionalism updating the scores and photos at the end of every night. Our three club photographers Robert Christopher, Dave Reel and Bridget Earl have captured the spirit of the mini leagues, with some beautiful photographs. Our website had over 7,000 hits for the duration of the Mini Leagues with over 4000 hits on the mini Leagues pages.
Our Mini Leagues get bigger and better each year and they are run by many club members and volunteers, but the man who has the biggest responsibility is Paul Atkinson. Paul has once again done a top class job. Paul is our chief mini leagues organiser and on behalf of all the players, parents and everyone connected in St Mochta's FC, thank you Paul.
Finally, thank you to all the parents for registering with St Mochta's Fc and you should all be very proud of your children. The behaviour from every single child was exceptional for the duration of our Mini Leagues. Enjoy the summer and we look forward to seeing you all very soon.
