The Youghal United Christmas Cup will take centre stage at Ardrath Park at the end of the month – and all proceeds are in aid of the Cork Simon Community.
On Saturday December 30 from 11:00 am, eight teams of five will battle it out on the astro-turf of Youghal’s state-of-the-art all-weather pitch, in a Champions League-style tournament. The winning-team will claim local bragging rights, and a prize of €160. Funds raised will go to the homeless charity Cork Simon.
The competition is open to anyone over the age of 16, with a maximum of three League-registered players allowed on each team. Entry is €50 per squad (of eight people).
Speaking to the East Cork Journal, event organiser Thomas ‘Mossy’ Clohessy said; ‘‘I’ve held tournaments in Youghal before and they were very successful. The community gets involved and that’s the main thing. Bringing people together on an occasion, making it a success and raising money for a good cause (is the whole point of the tournament).’’
