Junior Men for European Clubs Track & Field

The club`s senior men will not be the only Clonliffe team in European action in 2012 with the Clonliffe`s Committee accepting the invitation for the junior men to take part in the European Clubs Junior Men`s Track and Field. Clonliffe are in group B which takes place in Leiria, Portugal on September 15th. This championship will provide athletes such as Keith Pike, Patrick O`Connor, Stuart Roche, Andrew Heeney, Ryan Whelan, Ian Guiden, Aaron Hanlon, Eoin McCullough and Liam Ashton, to name but a few, with a great opportunity for a taste of international competition. With the programme providing for a full compliment of track and field events and relays it is expected that a team of around 20 athletes will travel so competition for places will be keen. As always costs are a factor. There is a small grant available which will cover about 20% of the total costs so fund raising will be required. Members are asked to please help out with any fund raising events over the Summer months.
