Longford ladies county players  busy training on individual basis

As we continue in Level 5 lockdown all panel members on the various Longford county panels are busy going through their individual workouts.
It was hoped that county players could get back onto the playing field to participate in group training soon but with word coming from the most recent Gaelic Games Covid Advisory Group meeting that no on field activity will be permitted, training or games, until Easter at the earliest, this means that all girls on the county panel must continue with their home individual training programmes for now.
Hopefully after Easter we can all look forward to an easing of current restrictions and hopefully a welcome return to on field football activities. In the meantime, it is important that we all continue to follow all Covid-19 guidelines and Stay Safe.

U-14 County Panel
Please note the closing date for expression of interest for to join the U-14 county panel is this Friday, February 19.
The U-14 county management are asking all Longford LGFA clubs to inform their U-14 players that they are looking for girls who are interested in joining the 2021 county panel and that are at a sufficient level to put their names forward and for the club secretary or parent of the girl to contact either Christy at 086 839 9057 or Charlene at 086 165 0780 with the player’s name, DOB, club and parents contact phone number.
Due to coronavirus restrictions the new management team are unable to hold trials at this present time. Following this contact, the management will discuss individual training with each girl and parent. Please bear in mind a good fitness level will be an important factor in being selected.
If any parents are interested in helping out the U-14 management as Female Liaison Officer, Covid Supervisor, or can offer medical cover for training sessions and games please contact Christy Hopkins or Charlene Oates on the above numbers.
