Social Sevens - 28th Sept

The Social Sevens will now be on Saturday 28 September at 2pm.

8th September 2013 An Riocht (Down) will host the third annual JG Donnan Cup 7-A-Side Social Football Tournament

On Sunday 8th September 2013 An Riocht (Down) will host the third annual JG Donnan Cup 7-A-Side Social Football Tournament for adults who do not play competitive football (due to a full round of adult football leagues being arranged for 5pm on Saturday 7th September we have moved the tournament back a day).

Previous Cup holders were Warrenpoint (2010) & An Riocht (2011) and Shield winners were Drumgath (2010) & Tir Na nOg (2012). The event is run along similar lines to the highly successful An Riocht juvenile tournaments which attract teams from all four provinces and overseas throughout the summer. Teams are placed in groups of four on shortened pitches at Dunavil and each is guaranteed a minimum three group games plus at least one knock-out game. The action gets underway from 3pm with the final games scheduled for 6.30pm. Social Football is a relatively new activity and has replaced Masters Football in prolonging players’ involvement with the national game. The one obvious difference is of course there is no lower age limit for social football.
