The Rebel Óg playing season is upon us with games now scheduled for most weeks at the various age groups. At Mizen Rovers AGM and at recent Club meetings the numbers of players available to fill the various squads has been the subject of quite a bit of debate. Player numbers have been in decline over the the last six or seven years since the good days of 2010/11/12 when we were winning trophies at all age groups in both hurling and football. Those days are gone and now we are reaching critical point where we might very well not be able to field an U14 football team this season and will be extremely tight at other age levels. The Club has looked at many options including amalgamation with other local clubs but this has not been possible at this juncture. So in order to ensure the Black and Amber shirt continues to appear at underage level and at many venues throughout West Cork we are seeking out and inviting players from both within and outside our parish, right up to the City, to come and join up with us. You can enjoy the experience of training and playing football at one of the most up to date facilities in Cork county with fully qualified and vetted coaches on hand to guide you.Transport will be provided from where ever you live to training and games and playing gear will be supplied including gum shields. Whether you have played football before and discontinued for any reason with your club or you want to try it for the first time we would be delighted to have you with us. At Mizen Rovers you will be guaranteed football and game time whenever you pull on the shirt. Everyone and anyone from 6 years to 18 years is welcome whether for the season or a full career or while you are down with us on your holidays at any time of the year. And to Parents, Mizen Rovers is an award winning Club, both locally and nationally, with our ‘Care For Our Players’ programme which is unique amongst clubs in the country. Your child will be happy and safe within Mizen Rovers. Please contact our Coaching Officer Kieran Sheehan 086 1023629 or Club Secretary Maura O Reilly 086 8512283. We’ll take it from there.
