Football Club
« on: September 18, 2019, 08:54:33 PM »
Bit late  in the season for 2019 but can anyone advise on a football only club I could play a bit with for next year. Never actually played Gaelic so that's my level!

Not too many clubs will turn anyone down. Theres always room for one more on a junior b or c squad! Depends where you're based really.

Anywhere remotely near the M7 to be honest! Club is more important than location.

Clubs like Courtwood or Emo may suit as they are basically football only clubs, they are senior teams though. Courtwood have a junior C side also.

The Heath, Emo, Courtwood are all on the M7 and are football only clubs

Courtwood are operating in junior c with their second team o Dempsey’s are the other side of the road and have 3 teams they’d be your first two inside the co bounds after coming off m7 at monasterevin

Kilcavan and Barrowhouse would be football only clubs who will be playing their highest grade at Junior A next season . Kilcavan in the north of the county  between Mountmellick and Geashill, Barrowhouse in the South between Athy and Carlow . Both small rural clubs that would traditionally work off small squads .

You're best bet would probably be Park-Ratheniska or Annanough. Both are relatively close to the motorway, Park-Ratheniska are a dual club but their football team play at Junior level. Annanough are intermediate but they're a small rural club who field a Junior C team as well, which is a good place to start out if you haven't played before. They'd be low on numbers and would welcome any new recruit I would imagine. They'd only be about 5 minutes from Junction 15. The Heath are right on the motorway as well, but they're a senior club and their second team is Junior A, so maybe a club that has a Junior C team would be better for you. Courtwood and O'Dempsey's are only about 10 minutes from the motorway as well, but both are senior clubs who also field teams in the lower grades. Hope that helps, fair play to you for taking it up, best of luck.

Thanks for that guys. Very helpful. I play hurling with a club so I think it has to be a football only club and junior would be my level obviously.
