A SOUTH Kilkenny club are getting ready to celebrate the big ‘40’ this weekend.

Kilmacow FC will mark their 40th anniversary with a big bash. A series of matches for everyone who played with the club from 1971 to 2011 will be held on Saturday afternoon, followed by an evening of festivities in the Fox’s Den.

The action begins with a five a-side tournament for schoolboy players at 1pm, followed by a seven a-side competition for juniors from 3pm. A series of matches involving players who turned out for the club since 1971 will also be played on the day.

Later that evening the club will complete their celebrations with a party at the Fox’s Den. The Den will be decked out in the club’s colours, with an array of jerseys, photographs and club memorabilia on display.
