Running from Monday to Friday of that week, from 10am until 1.00pm, a large turnout of players, both male and female, will take to the field for a variety of top class coaching, fun packed activities and a real opportunity to meet new friends-all capably delivered by fully qualified IFA coaches.

Maurice said: “It was great to see people getting their registration posted so quickly in July. This meant we knew in advance, how many to plan for.”

A similar event was held in early July when approximately 80 players took part, with everyone receiving a free Adidas ball and a Nutty Krust goodie bag.

The week was a huge success, although tinged with sadness at the recent loss of Irish FA Grassroots officer, Wesley Gregg.

By attending the camp, everyone ensured that it was a fitting tribute to the immensely popular Portstewart man and he was remembered on the last day of action by a round of applause by all present.

Coach coordinator, Ian Getty said: “We were all really determined to make the week in July a success (for Wesley Gregg) and to see everyone really supporting the event confirmed just how popular he was.

“He would have been so proud to see all the regulars and indeed the large turnout of newcomers.”

Places are already filling up, so make sure to register as soon as possible.
