The ladies football team will celebrate their 2014 league victory on Friday night 6th March in the Big Wheel and the event will also double as a fundraiser with a table quiz beginning at 9.30pm. The Ladies Club are hoping for a good turnout as they do very little other fundraising during the year and would appreciate any support. A table of four costs €20 with finger food provided courtesy of our host Liam Glennon.
The Lockes junior Footballers qualified for the Championship semi- final courtesy of a 2-14 to 0-6 victory over Tullogher-Rosbercon on Saturday last. The scoreline does not tell the full story of what was a very decent game of football played in very windy conditions. Tullogher had the use of the strong breeze in the opening half and the Callan lads were pinned in their own half for much of the time. Tullogher enjoyed a four point advantage at the break 0-6 to 0-2 but the Lockes had fought hard to restrict the defecit and now had the elements at their back.
The John Lockes have produced a club jersey for their supporters. So why not buy your own club jersey this year instead of buying the Manchester United, Liverpool or Celtic Jerseys. Wouldn't it be cool to wear your own Lockes jersey throughout the year. We have had a special design for young people created so if you would like one for yourself or for the kids. Let us know. The juvenile jerseys up to age 12 will retail at €35.00 and jerseys for 13 years upwards will be €40.00 as they are subject to VAT unfortunately.
