New season for Olympic

COOKSTOWN Olympic will be sponsored by Moe’s Bar, Cookstown and will continue their pre-season training every Tuesday and Thursday from 8pm on grass pitch 4 at the Mid-Ulster Sports Arena.

Moe’s Bar is currently in the process of planning a welcome night for the Cookstown Olympic squad and this will take place in the bar within the next couple of weeks.

At the start of this new season Cookstown Olympic once again extend an open invitation to any footballer who wants to take part in their pre season training so that the management and coaching staff can have an opportunity to assess their ability.

Cookstown Olympic will be playing in Division One in the Ballymena Provincial League which is a very competitive league against the likes of Ballymoney Utd Res, Glebe Res and Ballyclare Comrades Res. There will be a referee appointed in all matches and also a number of cup games in this league as well as the Mid Ulster Shield.

The list of pre-season friendlies so far are an away match on Saturday, July 21 against Dungannon Rovers and then away on Saturday, August 4 to FC Ballynure. Magherafelt Reds have also been pencilled in for Saturday, August 11 with a venue to be finalised. More pre-season friendlies are currently being planned and will be announced in the near future.

This season Cookstown Olympic intend to play on the grass surface at Beechway for all their league games and it is anticipated that their league season will kick off around August 25.
