The hugely popular summer camp runs this week from Mon 16th – Fri 20th July. There’ll be 270 kids between the ages of 4 & 12 on the main pitch every day learning more about football and hopefully having an all-round good time. Thanks to all who support this camp: Limavady Council who generously donate some funding; Derry County Board who, whilst under pressure from other clubs, provide us with great qualified coaches; St Canice’s ladie’s and men’s underage managers, coaches, and young adult players for all the help they provide during the week; many of the parents who stay to assist; and to St Canice’s Committee who always support us so strongly. For the first time we also have a Club Derry Coaching Clinic aimed at our U14 & U16 Players – this is a brilliant opportunity for our young footballers to learn from experienced players and coaches – the Clinic will run between 3pm & 5:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday.
Because of the Summer Camps here will be no mid-week evening training this week for the U6’s, U10’s or U12’s. Derry County U14 7’s competition in Owenbeg on Tuesday 17th from 7:30pm. Our U16 players begin their Championship campaign on Thursday night against Ballinascreen. There are a couple of Underage Go Games County Blitz’s in Owenbeg this week: Under 8 Blitz on Fri 20th July – players should report to Owenbeg for 6:30pm. U10 Blitz on Sun 22nd July – players should be in Owenbeg for 10am. St Canice’s are running their annual U12 Invitational Tournament on Sat 28thJuly where teams from Derry, Tyrone & Donegal will take part – as with everything, the more help available to us on the day the better – can all our underage coaches do their best to support us on the day please?
We held a street collection in Dungiven on Sat 14th July – thanks to the small band of committed volunteers who helped out and to the generosity of those who contributed we managed to collect around £1100 – a great result for the Club. To coincide with the end of the Summer Camp The Harkins will be providing music in the Club Bar on Fri 20th July from 9:30pm – cover fee £3 – we’d encourage as many parents as possible to show their support by either attending or by buying a ticket or two – see Tony or Francis for tickets.
