Purpose of This Site

We have Separate Operating Divisions, ONE PHILOSOPHY.

This is our 'Corporate site'; often a first point of contact for our new recruits. Day to day information is held at the individual sites of the teams; links to these sites can be found at the top of every page on this site. So you will not find fixtures, scores, goalkickers and the like here.
However, for matters of policy and governance together with items of a general nature you are at the right place.
We welcome your enquiries and this is the entry point for contact with our Board of Management. A contact form can be found further down on this page while the email address is at the top of all pages.
