Crossmaglen Rangers, club news and events – 13th February
After the lull of the last two months it is back to business as the team finalise their preparations for their trip to Portlaoise to take on Munster champions Dr. Crokes on Saturday next. Management have left no stone unturned to ensure that the boys are in top shape to meet the stiff challenge which lies ahead. Our opponents are regarded as one of the top teams in the country and will present a stiff challenge, but if you wish to claim the Holy Grail you have to beat the best. When we last met almost five years ago it took two games to separate us , hopefully we will be able to finish the business first time.
As a tough game is expected I would ask our supporters to get behind our team from the star and give them your full vocal support, it is easy to support a team when they are winning it is when the chips are down they need your support most. As usual I would remind our supporters that our club has a proud history and no one should spoil it by word or deed. The team and management have worked hard making many sacrifices along the way to ensure they are in top shape to meet the challenge and we owe them a huge debt of gratitude for the enjoyment they have given us over the years.
The club are updating the history of the club by producing a D.V.D. We are particularly interested in people who have Photographs or records relating to the early years of the club. If you feel you have information no matter how little, please pass it on to any member of the committee or contact Tony Brady@0876929783 or Tom Mc Kay@30861043.
The club lotto provides much needed funds for the day to day running of the club and your support is greatly appreciated. With the club involved in the championship final expenses have dramatically increased. To provide a full kit for the team cost over £1500 to hire afield to play a game under lights cost £160 other costs such as transport, first aid, catering help to swell the bill so it is vitally important that members continue to support this fundraiser. Tickets cost £1 and can be purchased from local shops or any member of the committee. If you feel you can help out by selling tickets no matter how few
Please contact Peadar Mc Coy or any member of the committee who will provide you with a book.
