Waiting for that text

It amazes me the power of the desire we feel as we want our respective teams to do well. I was travelling home from abroad this Saturday and it meant missing my u12 team's Irish cup match. Unfortunate I thought, but, no bother, I'd get a text with the score when it was all done. I'd sit back at the airport, have a cuppa, and read the paper.

New Juvenile Season

Today marks the beginning of the boys juvenile season for Colga. Teams representing Colga from u11-u17 will begin their 9month long journey across the county, the provence, and maybe even across the country.

We are a proud club with fantastic players and managers and we wish them all the best this
