Club Notes – Week Beginning 10-04-17

  • In partnership with Downpatrick RGU we are holding a joint fundraiser known as ‘SKYBALL’, both clubs will be selling tickets for £5.00 with the chance to win a first prize of £1000.00, second prize of £200.00 and three further prizes of £100.00 each. The fundraiser involves people purchasing a ticket, each ticket will be allocated a square on the top grass pitch at the RGU, five balls will be dropped from a helicopter over the pitch and each square that a ball lands in will be prize winners starting with the first prize. To purchase a ticket contact a member of the committee or check out the online option on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
