NDSL Academy starting in the new year

NDSL will be establishing a special coaching academy for 10, 11 and 12 year old girls. Basically this will involve weekly additional coaching sessions for girls in this age group who are interested in getting to the next level. This group might also be used to form a representative team to play against other leagues.

The cost of these coaching sessions is €80 for 6 months which includes a free tracksuit. If you are interested in taking part you should contact Dan in the NDSL office at 086-8452208 or just come along to the first session which is taking place in the NDSL grounds on Oscar Traynor Road from 7-8pm on Thursday 15th of January 2009.

A Great Christmas party

We had a great day at our Christmas party in Porterstown. After several days of rain, the weather decided to favor us for a change. We didn't have sunshine, but at least the rain held of for the festivities.

In the first match of the tournament the red devils team took an early lead and were 2-1 at half time. However, the yellow bellies equalised in the second half to leave the final score at 2-2

In the next game, the red devils really got into their stride for the next game against the colours and the final score was 5-0.

The colours were not willing to take this lying down and scored first in their match against the yellow belies. At half time it was 2-1 to the colours. They extended their lead in the second half and at the full time whistle the score was 4-2.

In the last match everyone joined in on one side or the other. Even Peter and Brian did duty in goals. After an exciting match both teams were level and everyone enjoyed a well deserved selction pack of goodies.

All in all it was an enjoyable end to and exciting first year for the Castleknock Celtic girls

Christmas Party and Bag Packing

Our Christmas Party will take place in Porterstown from 10:30-12:30 on Saturday 13th of December. This is likely to great fun with a small soccer competition among ourselves followed by lots of goodies.

We are also down to help out with the bag packing in Tesco, Roselawn to raise funds for the club. The under 14s are scheduled to pack from 7-8:30pm on Tuesday 23rd while the under 12s are scheduled to pack from 4-5:30pm on Friday 19th. We expect a full turn out from the girls so let Peter or Brian know if you can't make it. We also need a few parents to help out supervising, so any offers of help will be much appreciated.

Under 12 match off tomorrow

The under 12 match is off tomorrow because the WFTA pitch is unplayable. However the under 14 match is going ahead.

We seem to be in very bad luck with pitches this year, but there is very little we can do.

Two away matches at the weekend

Both of our teams have away matches this Saturday (6th Dec).

The under 12 team are playing WFTA at Kildonan Rd with a 10 am kick-off. We should all meet up beside the all-weather pitch at 9.15am. The weather forecast is looking good so hopefully we will finally get to play another match before the Christmas break.

The under 14 team will be looking to extend their recent run of good results when they travel to the Brackenstown Road to take on Swords Manor. Kick-off is at 11am so the older girls should meet up at 10am beside the all weather pitch.
