Festival Of Football

On Saturday August 30th Fr. Tully Park will be a hive of activity as the club plays host to a Festival of Football. With events throwing in at 10:30 and continuing well into the afternoon it promises to be a very busy day.

First up on the day will be a presentation from the Dublin Senior team nutritionist Daniel Davey (@FoodFlicker on Twitter) on the best foods our players at all levels to be eating. He will also advise as to which bars are best to eat for players.

Next up from 11:15-12:00 a professional Strength and Conditioning Coach will go through Strength and Conditioning with special focus on what should be done with teams from U-14 and upwards,

At twelve o'clock Graham Reilly, Michael Newman, Mickey Burke and Seamus Kenny from the Meath team will be present to take players from the U-14 to Minor panels for some specialised coaching in attack and defence.

Lunch will be served in the clubhouse at 13:00 while also at 13:00 our U-6, U-8 and U-10 players will partake in a Skills Activity Circuit.

From 14:00 a truly unique aspect of this Festival of Football will commence. Members of our teams from U-12 level to Senior will combine on teams as they partake in a Blitz competition. This will provide a fantastic opportunity for our stars of the future to play with and against the present day Senior stars who have won so many Senior Championships for the club.

Also on the day there will be a guest speaker to address all present. The identity of this speaker has yet to be announced and should you correctly comment below with his/her identity your name will be entered into a draw for a prize on the day.

At the conclusion of the Festival the club will lay on a barbecue to ensure the day which began with a presentation from the Dublin Nutritionist will end with everybody well fed.

This day would not be possible without the hard work of Joe Sheridan in putting it all together. Joe is a brilliant clubman and is always eager to help with juvenile presentations or to drive the Club/School link at its outset. Our thanks also to Global Electrical who have come on board as the events main sponsor as well as Joe Sheridan (Acorn Life).
