Girls Football Celebration Day is a huge success

UPDATE, Sunday evening, September 28: We have more video footage that I had anticipated – the U8 certificate presentation ceremony is there too after all. I thought I had lost it, or not shot it properly in the first place, but it has been retrieved. Alas, some upside down selfies cast the video man into further controversy. Se below for link. Some items still syncing, so best to check later tonight or in the morning again.


We had a memorable hour or so in Flanagan Park yesterday morning (Saturday, September 28th, 2014) when we held our Girls Football Celebration Day.
Brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, grandfathers and grandmothers turned out to see our young female footballers showcase their skills.
Hard-working parents also put together a fantastic spread of food and refreshments for young and old.
The Saturday morning training is now over for the girls for this year, but we will be back – bigger and better – next year.
The improvement in skills levels shown by the girls throughout this year is quite astounding, and we look forward to promoting further improvements in the years ahead.
Most of all, we aim to ensure they derive enjoyment from their involvement in football because, human nature being what it is, if it’s not fun, they will drift away.
Each girl received a Certificate of Excellence (replete with some skills drills to work on over the winter months).
Great credit is due to the hard-working team who have revived girls football in the club this year.
Pictures from yesterday are available HERE. Pix will be syncing there throughout today (Sunday) so might be an idea to check in later too (it could be evening time in fact before all are up there). The video man apologises for not capturing the presentations to the younger girls. It’s what you get when you put amateurs on the job…
These are the highest resolution we have available, so feel free to download from there if you wish to print.
Anyone else who has photos for inclusion should email them to
