Stewartstown Harps GAC

ANYONE who is intending to play senior or reserve football this year is asked to attend a meeting with the new management at the pavilion on Sunday at 12.00. All newcomers are more than welcome to attend.

Membership for 2012 is now due to be paid. The committee have agreed that no one can play for the club if they are not a paid up member- no exceptions. So get your membership paid as soon as possible. All adult players are to pay their membership before the commencement of the Ulster League for insurance purposes.

Anyone who would be interested in managing the reserve team for the coming year should contact Mark Doran on 07711678860 to express their interest in the post.

Anyone who would be interested in coaching any of our youth teams for the up coming year must contact Rory O’Neill on 02887738766 or Mark Doran. It is hoped that we get a large number of volunteers especially parents involved to help to look after the various youth teams within the club.

If anyone is interested in managing any of the ladies teams they should contact Roisin O’Neill.

It is hoped to start up the Irish classes again in the New Year. Anyone interested in learning the language, or interested in increasing their knowledge of it, contact Steven Campbell on 02887738730.

Anyone over the age of 17 who would like to represent the club in senior Scor in the new year can do so by contacting cultural officers Steven Campbell on 02887738730 or Martin Campbell on 02887738140.

There is a free place on a first aid course which commences on 12 January and runs for 8 weeks from 7pm- 9pm in St Joseph’s Coalisland. Anyone interested or would like more information can contact Maura.

As ever, the club continue to be indebted to the many members of our main fund-raising initiative, Club na Clairseacha. The set up at Mullaghmoyle is a testament to the generosity and hard work of our local community. This scheme is vital in the upkeep of the facilities and we would urge any member who is not a Club na Clairseacha member to please see any committee member and join the scheme. Thanks to all for your continued support.

Any business in the local area who would like an advertising board placed around the new field in 2012 can contact Sean Gallagher on 02887738366 or Damien McConville on 02887738311.

The club is currently researching our history in preparation for the centenary next year. Any past or present members with any relevant information (old programmes of games, newspaper cuttings etc.) please contact Cathal Coyle on 07742986251. Any material given will be returned in the same condition.

Sympathy is extended to the Blaney family following the death of Josephine, who was aunt of committee member and former player Fergal Logan. May she rest in peace.
