The Collins family came out on top in draw
Saturday night, December 22, was a night of excitement at the famous The Sallynoggin Inn. The inimitable Johnny Peters was on stage with his Joe Dolan Tribute Show, the Cabinteely FC Volunteers and Friends were having a well-earned night out and there was money to be won!
The Cabinteely FC Christmas Draw took place in the Sallynoggin Inn on that night with €4,000 in prize money handed out. First prize of €3,000 went to Shane Collins on behalf of his father, Martin. All the Collins family are great supporters of Cabinteely FC. The runner-up prizewinners were as follows:
- €500: John Corcoran
- €250: Sandra Judge
- €250: Liz, Anita, Olwen and Karen
Speaking after the draw, Cabinteely FC Board Chairman, Larry Bass, thanked everyone who bought or sold draw tickets. “The support we receive within the club as well as from our families, volunteers and sponsors is vital in fielding our 58 teams on a weekly basis. The money raised from our Christmas Draw will go towards the continued development of players and facilities at the club”.
Cabinteely’s first game in the SSE Airtricity League of Ireland 2019 will be an East Coast derby versus neighbours, Bray Wanderers FC, in Stradbrook on Friday, February 22, with a 7.45pm kick-off. The fixtures for our underage National League teams, U-15, U-17, U-19 and, this season, U-13, will be announced in the coming days.
Meanwhile the boys and girls of the club’s juvenile teams are readying themselves for their new season which will get underway from mid-February.
Boots are being dusted off now and Cabo players at all levels will grace the fields of Stradbrook, Ballycorus, Kilbogget and many more venues over the next ten months or so.
