When we arrive in Blackburn the children have a friendly game against one of the local clubs. Saturday, at noon, the kids will be taken on a training season by one of the Blackburn Academy coaches. When the children finish, there will be a training seaso. They then will go and watch Blackburn vs Ipswich game.To say the kids are excited is a understatement! This is a first trip for our Club across the water and not the last. Roscrea United was only founded in 2013. We are a club who are very much community based. We would like to thank all the people who bought lines off our kids for the Draw. Chairperson Shane Lee said: “We also want to thank those who supplied the spot prices for the draw. Well done to all the winners of the draw which took place on Wednesday night at 8pm in the Auburn lounge. Thanks to Lua and Theresa Ryan for allowing us use their premises.”
