St Pats U15’s Make the French Connection!
Back in July 2016 St Pats U15s had a crazy idea that they would go on tour to Paris. Fully backed by the club and the NWC we began to raise money doing bagpacks at local supermarkets, gardening, raffles, cake sales, a family funday and much much more. With a target of over £9000 to raise it was always going to be a big ask.
Through sheer determination and a massive amount of hard work work the team reached their fundraising total and left for France on the 23rd October where they will stay until the 28th.
The team will playing a tournament on the Wednesday and a game on the Friday in what will be an amazing experience for this group of players, to represent not only the famous St Pats badge but also their country.
Keep an eye on social media for the result updates!
The lads also have opportunity to go to Disneyland Paris during the week as well as visiting Europe’s largest water park and Stade De France.
Nearly 18 months of hard work has finally come to fruition. The team are really grateful for all the support not just from the club and parents but from businesses and people community wide who have donated in any way.
Here’s to an amazing week!Paris here we come!!
