Killinardrish / Coachford AFC have recently launched their latest fundraising draw. The proceeds from this draw will be used to get the second pitch at the Glebe up and running for next season.

The development of this pitch to date has involved the building of a concrete reinforcing wall along the southern side-line boundary and the insertion of a full drainage system, along with levelling and re-seeding work. The cost of this work so far has been in the region of €110,000.

To get it finally up and running requires a further outlay of money to provide a net barrier on top of the wall which runs to about 110m long and also new goalposts and netting behind the goals. The pitch will be the main pitch for the schoolboys teams when it is playable.

Whilst the club is cognitive of the times we are living in, they feel that they have put forward a draw which is affordable to everyone and offers top prizes which include;
· A week for 2 in the Algarve, Portugal. Accommodation is in a 4* beach side hotel and all transfers to and from Faro airport are also included.
· €500 sponsored by Dooniskey Construction
· €300 sponsored by O’Callaghans Bar
· €200 sponsored by TJ Lyons Footwear
· Hi-If system sponsored by Murphy’s Electrical.

As well as the main prizes listed above there is also a very attractive sellers prize of a weekend for two in Manchester to see Man Utd take on Fulham in March 2012. This prize includes flights, accommodation and match tickets.

All the above is available at a cost of just €3 per line or for better value and more of a chance of winning you may purchase 4 lines for €10. The club would hope that people would be in a position to buy the 4 line option.

All schoolboy players, adult players, committee members and local businesses will have the cards available to purchase and the club will also be calling door to door in the near future.

The club is optimistic of a very positive response from the public to this draw as they have always been very supportive in the past. The facilities provided at the Glebe so far are a testament to the support which we have received to date.

We would also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the sponsors of the prizes and to wish all who purchase tickets the best of luck in the draw.
