In this week’s Ballyboughal GFC News;
As we welcome Ian McGill as new Club Chairman , we also want to thank and acknowledge our outgoing chairman Richard Seaver for the massive contribution he has made to the Club. Under his tenure, the Club has gone from strength to strength both on and off the field!Some notable changes since Richard has come in has been the introduction of the New All Weather Pitch, Popular Walking Track, New Championship Pitch, A Championship Win for the Men’s team, 2 Championship Wins for the ladies teams and so much more!Not only is Richard stepping down from the Club, but he is also finishing up today in the Airport after 40+ years service.A great Club Man, a Great Community Man (and a great man for buying a pint in Connors).Thanks from BBGFC Richard
- BBGFC have a New Chairman!!! The Club and Community would like to welcome and wish Ian McGill as the Club’s new Chairman! Ian has been an integral part of the club for a VERY long time, from his playing days as one of the best Defenders in the game, to his management days helping the Men’s team win the 2009 Junior Championship Final, and to his more recognised role these days as the man involved in EVERYTHING happening in the Club! We know Ian is the right man to take the job, and rest assured the club we have now, will be ten times bigger and better by the end of his tenure as Chairman! Best of Luck Ian and congrats to the McGill family!
