Brideview Utd Schoolboy/Girl Notes 07/08/2018
A Busy Week Off The Pitch
It was a busy week for local soccer fans with trips to The Aviva and the R.S.C. The group of Arsenal supporters enjoyed their trip to the Aviva and we also met up with the father and son dressed up in the Arsenal colours. The bus driver even became an Arsenal fan but just for the photo. We failed to see any of the local Chelsea fans. Then again there is only two of them.
Friday night saw some local and some from up the country at the R.S.C. I understand some of them were on the telly. Not a good result here for the blues.
It was back to the Aviva again on Saturday where Liverpool took on SSC Napoli. To see the stadium filled with almost all Liverpool fans was strange. I counted 7 Napoli fans in our area. Here again a huge number of fans from Tallow all in good form. We had over 100,000 fans at the three soccerr matches with 97,500 at the games in the Aviva. Which shows pulling power of the Premier League clubs. We also know that thousands of fans travel to England every week for games and this will begin next weekend.
While the crowd in the R.S.C. was almost 3,300 if some of those other fans attended the SSE Airtricity League games now and again it would surely add big numbers to the gates.
The Brideview Utd schoolboy AGM will take place on this Thursday night 9th August in Leonard Fraser Park at 8pm. All are welcome to attend.
The Academy takes place every Saturday in Leonard Fraser Park at 11 O'Clock. All kids from ages 5 to 8 are welcome.
To the Republic of Ireland's hockey team on reaching the World Cup Final. A silver medal is a great achievement for such a small country. Well done girls.
