Greenwood FC Schoolboys Section aged 7 to 16 on Sunday 7th June held a very successful Fun Day in basking sunshine in Coffey's Field Togher. Running from 9am till 4pm when we finally were able to close the pitch gates and finish we received great assistance from club members.
With the assistance of great weather huge crowds turned out to take part, with the day consisting of Fun Games, Football Skill Games, Tug of War for all the kids. As always plenty of free refreshments were on hand for all, catering for the Parents & Grandparents who were attracted to the tea, coffee, cakes etc., with the Kids only interested only in the Free Barbecue which ran from Noon to 3pm.
Each Academy player, aged 7 to 10, went home happy with at least a medal for their efforts all year and there was also Player Of The Year & Club Man Of The Year awards for teams aged 11 to 16 years. These Awards were presented by current Cork City Captain John Dunleavy who spent the whole afternoon presenting medals and posing for photographs with both adults and kids. A huge thanks to John for his attendance, a true gentleman, he is a credit to Cork City FC and to the professional game in Ireland.
Special receptions went to our U14 Premier team, winner of the U14 Local Cup and U16 Division 3 team who were Runners Up in their League.
Finally we would like to thank everybody who contributed in any way however small to making it another wonderful Greenwood FC Fun Day to finish off the season 2014/2015, particularly Togher Scouts, Stalks & Stems, Centra Togher, Sean O Sullivan, Gary Mc Carthy trophies, The Dean rock Bar, Togher Community Assoc, Trabolgan Holiday Centre, P O Connell The Lough & Togher Boys School.
