For most sports clubs the last thing on their minds at the moment would be further development but that is not the case in Galbally where the local soccer club continue to upgrade their facilities.

To add to their existing playing pitch, dressing rooms and all weather pitch additional land has been purchased and works have begun on a second playing pitch to cater for the large amount of underage players within the club.

To make such plans for the future will require fundraising efforts by many and the first phase of this will begin on Sunday, July 3, in Galbally Community Field.

In an effort to bring all the people in the community together the club are hosting a massive family fun day.

The festivities get underway at 12.30pm and with so many activities the organisers are confident there will be lots to do for all the family.

At 12.30pm our underage soccer blitzes shall commence for U10 and U12 boys and girls teams. We have invited a number of local teams to take part, however there are still a few slots for any interested teams. Contact 0872139554 for details.

There will be organised underage racing from under 6 to teens commencing at 1pm

Our supervised bouncing castles shall run all day from 12.30pm to 5pm; Face Painters will be working their magic through out the day for young and old; Giggles the clown, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck have a fun filled 2 hours of dance, games and laughter in the Community Hall from 2pm to 4 pm. Teas and coffees will be available for parents for parents.

Other fun events on the day include Wellington throwing, Clothes peg challenge, sponge throwing, Hammer and Nail competition and various skills competitions including Penalty Shootout, Crossbar Challenge, Long Puc, Golf Shot etc etc
