COMPETITION TIME - CLOSING DATE EXTENDED TO END OF SEASON

As part of the Club’s 30th Anniversary Year celebrations, we are holding a competition to design a new Club Crest and Motto. The current crest represents the Club’s sport and the community through the images of a Football and of Knocklyon Castle. While these images provide a great base, to mark this special year for the Club we feel it is now time to update them and who better to do this than those who know the Club best – our own players.

There will be four ‘Leagues’ based on age for the players, and, as we know how competitive parents are, a separate league for parents is included - so, just as on the pitch the kids can do their own work. There will be two sections within each of the five Leagues- one section & prize for crest andonesection & prize for motto - to be awarded in each.

Leagues:

The Primera Liga will include nursery up to the Under 9 age groups (inclusive)

The Premier League will include the U10’s to Under 12’s (inclusive)

Serie A will include U13’s to U15’s (inclusive)

The Airtricity League will include the U16’s to Senior (inclusive)

MLS (can you see what we did there??) will include any parents who would like to take part.

Each league has a section for Crest and a section for Motto – entrants who wish to enter a crest with motto can do so by submitting their work into the Crest section of the age relevant league.

          Rules

  • Knocklyon United F.C must be included somewhere in the design.
  • The new crest can take any shape, e.g. circle, shield, kite, diamond, triangle, or include banners above/below.
  • The Motto can be in English, Irish or Latin (with an English translation provided on your entry please!)
  • The Motto is to represent our Club and so must be original i.e - a new motto and therefore cannot be the motto, anthem or slogan used by or associated with any other well known professional or local club even if in a different language – e.g Aston Villa’s motto is ‘Prepared’ – so you can’t use ‘Prepared’ even if in Latin (Paravit) or Irish (Ullmhaithe). That also means no – “Glory, Glory, Tottenham Hotspurs”, “Come on you Reds”, “YNWA”, “I’m forever blowing bubbles”, ‘Ole, Ole, Ole’, “COYBIG”, etc. etc.
  • Competition is only open to players and their parents who are registered in the Club at the time of the closing date.
  • You can enter both sections of the relevant league as many times as you want.
  • Entries can be submitted by email, by hand or in an envelope to the Club and it is the responsibility of the entrant to make sure their entry is submitted in time.
  • By Email to: kufcdd@gmail.com
  • By envelope: To Delaford Shop when open – a competition box will be in the shop.
  • By hand to any manager for forwarding to, or directly by hand to Dave Dunning or Aideen Ellison

    All entries must have the following clearly written on them:

  • The entrants name & address.
  • Their Mother/Father’s Name & Mobile Number. (Parents entering don’t need this, just their own details!!)
  • Their team & manager name in the club - e.g U10 Saturday – Manager Joe Bloggs.
  • Closing date is 31.03.2014 with winners to be announced on 06.04.2014.
  • Executive Committee & selected Officials of the Club will choose the winners. Their decision is final.

Notes & Guidance

The overall winning Crest & Motto will be embroidered onto all Club gear after the Competition ends and so must be able to be reproduced onto jerseys, shorts etc. Overly complex designs with too many colours may not be suitable for this. This should not stop anyone’s imagination especially the younger ones, when entering & you can enter multiple times anyway.

 

KNOCKLYON UNITED - 30TH ANNIVERSARY

Our Annual Dinner Dance will surely be the highlight of the year with details to be released very shortly.

The Club are putting together a 'Little Book of Knocklyon United- 30 years in the Making' and would like to hear from anyone involved over the years who may have old photos, newspaper cut outs or untold stories to share.

Please feel free to contact Dave Dunning (0872274545 / kufcdd@gmail.com) Alan Greene (0876308153) or Aideen Ellison (0866044789) with anything you may have to contribute.

From all the Committee, please get involved where you can, in whatever way you can, no matter how small and lets make it a year to remember !!!


Congratulations & well done ................

........... to Ethan Farrell (pictured above), goalkeeper & captain of our U15

Premier team who spent Tuesday to Thursday of last week in training with

Aberdeen FC in Scotland. Having made the DDSL Kennedy Cup squad for

2012-13, Ethan went on to not only play in the Kennedy Cup but win the

Trophy without conceding a goal. Add that to excellent weekly performances

for the club and it is easy to see why this opportunity arose. Ethan’s time with 

Aberdeen took in two matches against the older age group teams at U17 & U18

level along with several training sessions. Manager Gary Farrell added "Ethan

has been with the Club sine the age of 7. A credit to his parents, Ethan has

remained loyal while having other opportunities and he is now reaping the

benefits of stability. Ethan is away this week with the Irish U15 team and we

wish him the  best of luck, he is a fantastic kid & we are all very proud of him."

The club will continue to support Ethan and indeed all our players with their

development. In time we are sure many others will follow the same path.
