COMPETITION TIME - CLOSING DATE EXTENDED TO END OF SEASON
As part of the Club’s 30th Anniversary Year celebrations, we are holding a competition to design a new Club Crest and Motto. The current crest represents the Club’s sport and the community through the images of a Football and of Knocklyon Castle. While these images provide a great base, to mark this special year for the Club we feel it is now time to update them and who better to do this than those who know the Club best – our own players.
There will be four ‘Leagues’ based on age for the players, and, as we know how competitive parents are, a separate league for parents is included - so, just as on the pitch the kids can do their own work. There will be two sections within each of the five Leagues- one section & prize for crest andonesection & prize for motto - to be awarded in each.
The Primera Liga will include nursery up to the Under 9 age groups (inclusive)
The Premier League will include the U10’s to Under 12’s (inclusive)
Serie A will include U13’s to U15’s (inclusive)
The Airtricity League will include the U16’s to Senior (inclusive)
MLS (can you see what we did there??) will include any parents who would like to take part.
Each league has a section for Crest and a section for Motto – entrants who wish to enter a crest with motto can do so by submitting their work into the Crest section of the age relevant league.
Notes & Guidance
The overall winning Crest & Motto will be embroidered onto all Club gear after the Competition ends and so must be able to be reproduced onto jerseys, shorts etc. Overly complex designs with too many colours may not be suitable for this. This should not stop anyone’s imagination especially the younger ones, when entering & you can enter multiple times anyway.
KNOCKLYON UNITED - 30TH ANNIVERSARY
Our Club is 30 years old this year. Football related competitions & events are planned for right through the year to mark the occasion properly for players, members & parents - past & present.
Our Annual Dinner Dance will surely be the highlight of the year with details to be released very shortly.
The Club are putting together a 'Little Book of Knocklyon United- 30 years in the Making' and would like to hear from anyone involved over the years who may have old photos, newspaper cut outs or untold stories to share.
Please feel free to contact Dave Dunning (0872274545 / firstname.lastname@example.org) Alan Greene (0876308153) or Aideen Ellison (0866044789) with anything you may have to contribute.
From all the Committee, please get involved where you can, in whatever way you can, no matter how small and lets make it a year to remember !!!
Congratulations & well done ................
........... to Ethan Farrell (pictured above), goalkeeper & captain of our U15
Premier team who spent Tuesday to Thursday of last week in training with
Aberdeen FC in Scotland. Having made the DDSL Kennedy Cup squad for
2012-13, Ethan went on to not only play in the Kennedy Cup but win the
Trophy without conceding a goal. Add that to excellent weekly performances
for the club and it is easy to see why this opportunity arose. Ethan’s time with
Aberdeen took in two matches against the older age group teams at U17 & U18
level along with several training sessions. Manager Gary Farrell added "Ethan
has been with the Club sine the age of 7. A credit to his parents, Ethan has
remained loyal while having other opportunities and he is now reaping the
benefits of stability. Ethan is away this week with the Irish U15 team and we
wish him the best of luck, he is a fantastic kid & we are all very proud of him."
The club will continue to support Ethan and indeed all our players with their
development. In time we are sure many others will follow the same path.
