Hope I find you all well.
well the good news is that we have a Viking Gaels sponsor for 2015.The Irish Rover pub in Copenhagen has agreed to be our sponsor.Attached I have the new Viking Gaels kit for 2015 which they have kindly agreed to sponsor.They have also agreed to donate some funds towards our travel expenses for next year.
I hope this now gives us the impetus and drive to compete at a higher level in 2015.We had a great introductory year in 2014 where we competed at 2 Euro tournaments and came 5th overall in the standings.I need you to unearth the hurlers in your club and get them out of the woodwork.we already have 2/3 new players for next year ( Welcome John Lambert and Tony Kennedy ) and we need just a few more to be really competitive.As an ECB board member, I will really be pushing for the Nordic region to host a round of the European championship tournaments in 2015 with Copenhagen more than likely the candidate due to its central location.
There are now no roadblocks to our progress.Hurleys and helmets can and will be provided if needed.The calendar will be agreed by late January and hurling gets first pick of dates on ECB calendar.Therefore,we can plan well in advance and have a good idea of numbers.
thanks to all the lads who competed for the Gaels in 2014.Im sure you will all agree it was a really enjoyable weekend and the level of competitive games was really high.
its down to ye all now lads.Lets get our house in order and have a real good crack at the hurling season in 2015.
