WICKLOW ROVERS AFC CLUB NOTES WEEK ENDING 11th APRIL 2021
 
Well, we can now see a bit of light at the end of this long Covid tunnel as the recent emerging news that children’s sports can resume non-contact training providing Covid numbers keep improving. The new date for restrictions being eased regards non-contact training for kids is Monday April 26th, hopefully this will be the start of things getting back to normal. All managers will have been notified at this stage regards a safe return to training. All our managers will be notified regards a date for a club managers meeting before any training resumes. It’s of the utmost importance that all managers attend this meeting, date and time will be forwarded to you all as this meeting will have to be held within the Covid guidelines. All the previous guidelines under the FAI safe return to football will still apply so we ask all managers and coaches to abide by the guidelines. It would be great to get teams back playing so we can only hope that sometime soon we will all be back out mingling together playing and watching matches. At this moment let’s hope we can get to the first stage on April 26th and then safely progress from there. But all said the safety of all our members and friends in sport is the most important thing in these extreme times we find ourselves in. We hope all our members, their families and all our friends in sport are staying safe in these difficult times. Here’s hoping to seeing you all very soon.

The club’s first 50/50 draw took place last Tuesday night the 6th of April, the draw was streamed live on the club Facebook page. The very first winner was Stephen Behan who picked up a tidy sum in the amount of €422.50 which was fifty percent of funds taking in. Stephen also had a second chance of adding to his winnings when his nominated bonus ball number 32 could have added him a further €1,000 if his number came out as the bonus ball in the main draw of the Irish National Lottery on the following night Wednesday the 7th of April, unfortunately for Stephen it wasn’t to be with the number 17 coming from the drum. Still Stephen was a winner with his 50/50 winnings the night before, congratulations Stephen.

Well at long last we have a bit of good news regarding the resumption of our very popular Saturday morning academy. With the easing of restrictions recently we are now happy to inform everyone that our academy will kick off again on Saturday the 1st of May at Whitegates from 11 to 12. Even though we are back we will still request that people adhere to the FAI safe return to training guidelines in regards to the two metre distance rule and the wearing of face masks where required. It is advisable for guardians to read the FAI safe return to training guidelines prior to attending the academy. You can view the guidelines by visiting the FAI website at www.fai.ie or by clicking on the link on the academy advert on the club facebook page. We look forward to welcoming you all back on Saturday.

 
The club’s second 50/50 draw will take place on Tuesday night the 4th of May, the draw will be streamed live on the club Facebook page. The draw will have a guaranteed monthly winner, who will also have the chance to win a Jackpot prize by predicting the Bonus Ball Number in the main Irish Lottery draw that will take place the day after the winner is announced. It’s a 50/50 draw, where 50% of the revenue from ticket purchases will go to the winner and the other 50% will go back into the club to support the upkeep, maintenance and enhance the facilities for everyone. The cost of a ticket is only €5 and you can buy as many tickets as you like. You can also subscribe to a monthly payment option, so that you won’t forgot to enter into the draw each month!!. The Jackpot prize is €1,100 for our May draw and will go up by a minimum of €100 per month if not won. The more people that play each month, the more money you can win and the bigger the jackpot increase. In these very challenging times for everyone, the club is doing it’s best to manage it’s finances, however with no revenue coming in from membership fees etc so far this year and fixed costs and maintenance costs still having to be paid, we would really appreciate your support in buying tickets and encouraging family and friends from all over the world to support us!!
