Drumcliffe Handball Clubs Year to Date.

What a year it’s been for Drumcliffe Handball club!!  We started with a recruitment drive in October when we returned to training with our juvenile members on Saturday mornings.  Our registration numbers were up on last year at this point,and we now have 72 people registered with the club.

We have our 6 regular coaches who have been working hard each week to improve the skills of the children: Hugh Slevin Snr, Mickey Brennan, Hugh Slevin Jnr, Joel Smith , Martin Corr and Clive Slevin.  The hard work of both coaches and players has certainly payed off.  There has been a marked improvement in all of our players, right through the categories from 6 years upwards.
