The John Lockes club wishes to extend their sympathy to the family of our Life President Paddy Ryan Green st. who died during the week .Paddy was involved in the Lockes club for many years and was hugely instrumental in the club buying and developing their own grounds back in the early eighties. This writer has memories of following Paddy around John Locke Park picking stones to prepare the new field for development. He served as an officer of the club , was a trustee of the club and served as selector on various teams during the years.

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.
