March 27th, 2017 | News

The club are very grateful for the sponsorship of new first aid kit for all of the club’s teams from Deeny’s Medicare, Downpatrick. Pictured receiving the new medical kits from Deeny’s Conor McNulty are (L->R) Eddie Harney (Vice Chairman), Columban Fitzsimons (Chairman), Irene Fitzsimons (Child Protection Officer) and Mark McGrath (Club Secretary) and some of the juvenile club members.

Fixtures are now out for many of the teams – see the club website (www.saul-gac.com) for more information – as the competitive season gets underway. On Sunday past, the U16 girls were scheduled to play Loughinisland but the game was postponed (to be refixed). The u14 boys get their league campaigns up and running tonight (Monday) at home to Drumaness (Throw-in is at 6.30pm with players asked to be at the pitch for 5.50pm) and on Thursday night, the U16 boys make the short trip to Loughinisland for their opener (throw-in at 6.45pm). The senior men will begin their Division 3 pursuit with a home game v Tullylish on Fri, April 7th. The Reserves visit Ardglass for their opening game this Sunday. Also on Sunday the U14 Girls visit Castlewellan for their first league outing (12.30pm). Head along to one or more of the games and support the teams.

This Saturday morning sees the next stage in pitch cleanup with the focus on grass cutting and maintaining the grounds. Volunteers are welcomed from 10am – even if you can spare a hour or so, it all helps. Bring mowers/strimmers etc to help get the facilities looking their best as the football action ramps up.
