Soccer: Junior clubs invited to play in Carlow Kilkenny FC fundraiser

Junior clubs from across the Kilkenny & District League have been invited to get fit for the new season and help a local side in the process.

Carlow Kilkenny FC will hold a pre-season seven-a-side tournament for junior clubs in August.

The competition, which will be played at the Derdimus Park all-weather pitch from August 1, is open to panels of 10 players (roll-on, roll-off subs). The event has been organised to help raise funds for the local side, who compete in the under-15 SSE Airtricity League of Ireland.

Each game will be 60 minutes long. In the event of a draw matches will be decided by penalty shootout.

All first round losers will go into the Shield competition with winners progressing to the Cup. Cost of entry is €100 per team or €10 per player.

Clubs who wish to enter are asked to email tommullinsballintee@gmail.com. Close of entry is Sunday.
