After a gap of almost a decade after Oranbay 90 Ladies subsumed into the broader Maree/Oranmore fc since 2012,our club will field an Adult Ladies side in the forthcoming Galway and District League for season 2021/22.To assist the process Training continues every Wednesday from 8pm to 9pm on the Oranmore 3g pitch.In addition at the same time,same venue this Wednesday August 18th there will be a basic introductory coaching course for mothers of our girls players.This female only coaching course is designed for ladies with little or no knowledge of the game and hopefully will allay any fears as the club expands its female membership,our club can only expand its female section with female help.All mothers/Ladies are most welcome.This will then mean we will have female sides from u6 up to adult level.
Training for all our competitive sides both male and female will be well underway this week in preparation for the new season,training times and arrangements will be posted on our facebook page
.Our club are very proud of our u11 boys sides this past weekend,our two club squads namely Celtic and Athletic reached the Galway Cup semi finals with the Athletic side reaching the Kevin Power Cup final narrowly loosing to Salthill Devon in the decider in Eamonn Deacy Park on Sunday.
