As Christmas approaches we take time to reflect on what has, to date, been a very successful Champion Milk football 4 All programme.
With over 160 children, boys and girls, aged 5 to 11 years, registered, we have had a series of fun-filled Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. With our dedicated coaches taking the children through their exercises one cannot but be proud and hopeful of what lies ahead for soccer in Monaghan.
At present, Monaghan United has five competitive teams from 12’s to 18’s. We are also in partnership with CMUL competing in the under 17 FAI League of Ireland. With under 19’s and under 15’s League of Ireland shortly coming on stream it’s vital that we provide as much football as possible locally.
With our Champion Milk football 4 all programme we feel confident that we are heading in the right direction and the future looks very bright at Gortakeegan.
Speaking during the week, Chairman of Monaghan United F.C, Jim McGlone, paid tribute to his committee, his managers and coaches. He was especially thankful to all the parents / guardians and of course all the children who continue to turn out and participate in the club’s activities. He went on to say how grateful he was to all the team sponsors without whom the running of the teams would be more difficult.
For years Champion Milk has been associated with Monaghan United and it is particularly pleasing that they have endorsed our Football 4 All programme with their continued sponsorship.
From Monaghan United FC, we wish you all a very Happy Christmas.
