Sadly and regrettably, the country has moved to Level 3 of the National COVID Plan. The Austin Stack Club wishes to announce that training for all underage teams has now ceased for 2020. The club’s decision to suspend activity is taken because of an víreas coróineach dochreidte doleigheasta duairc dubhach dorcha dúshlánach dúnmharfach dainséarach díobhálach doiligh damanta (www.tearma.ie / www.teanglann.ie). We take this opportunity to express a sincere ‘thank you’ to all our club volunteers who did everything to ensure that all our players were given the opportunity, over the last few months, to train and play in a safe and fun environment. We say a special ‘mórbhuíochas’ to all our club families who enthusiastically engaged and diligently complied with everything that was asked of them. We will recommence training for all groups in 2021.
PEIL FAOI 6: Practise on your own, boys, until we meet again.
PEIL FAOI 8: Bígí ag cleachtadh libh féin, a bhuachaillí, go dtí go mbuaifimid le chéile arís.
PEIL FAOI 10: Practise on your own, boys, until we meet again.
PEIL FAOI 12: It is with a heavy heart that we in the U12 section pull up stumps for the year. However, considering where we stood back in mid-March, all in the U12 family head into the winter as happy campers after managing to squeeze a huge volume of football into our curtailed season. Our three teams played a total of 32 games over 12 weekends and both players and parents deserve great credit for the consistently high turnout at training and matches. And, of course, it won’t be long before we’ll have the opportunity to do it all over again! The coaching team is already making plans for the 2021 season and will be ready to restart the U12/U13 juggernaut as soon as conditions allow. In the meantime, we encourage all our young warriors not to lose their much-improved skills and to keep practising at home until we meet again. Cleachtadh a dhéanann máistreacht!! Go dté sibh slán!
PEIL FAOI 14: We encourage every single U14 panel member to practise on his own or with a friend go dtí go dtiocfimid le chéile arís.
