New Season


You should be aware by now that the AUL season starts on the weekend of August 17th /18th

As usual, we will have a major preview on the ECHO closer to the start.

There are a lot of pages to fill, so we need your help. It is a great opportunity to publicize your club and your team.

Here are some suggestions:

Developments during the summer – pitch improvements, new facilities.

How did your AGM go? Any significant changes at the top i.e. new Chairman etc.
Feel free to list your committee members and their functions.

Who is the manager? The assistant? Or any of the backroom staff.

Any new signings? Players graduating from the B team? Up from the Youths? Who is the captain for the new season? Have you lost players? Are last season’s top scorers still with you? If so, who are they.

Where did you finish up last season and were you happy with it?

What are your aims for the season? Will priority be given to cups or league or consolidation in the section you are in?

Who got your annual awards: Player of the year? Top Scorer? Clubman of the Year?



Many thanks for you help and the best of luck for the season.

As usual, I can be contacted at 087 7936608 or

Footballs for charity

From Eric Higgins:

I am travelling to Belarus in September with Chernobyl Children's International, and will be spending a week with mentally and physically disabled kids, teaching them to play and enjoy football.
I am hoping that some clubs in Cork would donate footballs that I could take over with me and leave with the kids, as they don't really have much over there.
Any donations of any kind, whether its footballs or even a small cash donation, would be gratefully accepted.
Thanking You.
