Abbey Rovers Football Club had a very enjoyable evening in Priors Lounge, Ballinamore to celebrate the achievements of the club and players throughout the past year.

Each section presented awards to the Player of the year and the Most Improved Player of the year. In all, every child is a winner for their contribution to the team throughout the year. It takes commitment from each child and the coaches to achieve the success the club has obtained in the league over the past year.

A big thank you to all the coaches, parents and children for their hard work during the year. Thank you to Gay Priors Select Bar & Lounge for the use of their facilities and providing entertainment and food during the night, to all the sponsors of prizes for the raffle and to John Moloney, secretary for Longford & District Schoolboys League, for attending on the night and presenting the individual prizes with Kevin Andrews, Chairperson of Abbey Rovers FC.

Congratulations to all the members and coaches. We look forward to continued success in the year to come as we have doubled the number of teams through expansion into all age groups.
