FAI 5’s

Preparations for the Spar FAI 5 a side football competition have gotten underway in Kiltiernan. My friends and I have wanted to enter this competition for ages and this is the year for us. Last year in the competition over 24,000 people took part. If you win your provincial competition you advance to the nationals which are played at the Aviva!

On the day you’re allowed to have a squad of 8, with 5 people on the pitch at a time and 3 subs. You’re allowed roll on-roll off subs
We had our first training session last Sunday at Ardrahan Astro, and there was a great turnout. Jerry and Rory have kindly volunteered to train us and organise the whole thing. Kiltiernan are in the ‘A’ Cup category for small schools. Our group will be played out on March 21st at Salthill Devon football club. We’re really looking forward to it.
