Last Saturday the FAI in conjunction with the NECSL launched the Don’t X The Line campaign in the Meath & District League grounds in Navan. The Under 7 league runs for twenty four weeks under the guidance of Mags Sheridan from the NECSL. Mags is the driving force behind the league and indeed it’s smoothness of running is down to her supreme organisational skills.
There are twenty eight teams playing every Saturday morning on the all weather facility in Navan. All teams play two games each and the emphasis is on FUN. There is a match card that each Manager fills out after each game but the one thing not on the card is the score of the game. As Mags explained “We are trying to keep it non competitive and fun for the young players”. Paul Martyn (Volunteer Education Co-Ordinator) from the FAI says it is the underage players we are trying to target with the campaign.
