So, once again it’s almost time to bid farewell to the year that was and later on tonight prepare to welcome in the shiny, new one that comes mewling into the world at the stroke of midnight. Out with another year of what might have been, in with one of what might just be. And on we go.
With the birth of the new year comes the return to action on the field. First up are the U21s who on Saturday take on Fermanagh in the newly constituted North-West Cup and then on Sunday it’s the eagerly awaited first outing for the seniors under Stephen Rochford’s tutelage in the form of an FBD League clash against NUIG. A squad of 23 players was named last night for this match – full details here.
Once the football gets underway, the calm that’s prevailed here for the last few weeks will be over as another year’s action begins to unfold. I’m eking out the last few days of downtime till then but will be back behind the proverbial counter once the skin and hair starts flying again. Happy New Year, all.
