Prosperous United

Thanks to all the support that has been wished on our U12 and U13 teams in their Shield Finals in Tougher Park. Our U14 team had a mixed weekend with qualifying for the Subsidiary Cup Semi Final with victory over neighbours Allenwood but then losing to Kill Celtic. The U15 team were beaten by two very late goals to deny them a place in a Shield final. Well done to both the U14 and U15 teams for their efforts in these competitions.

Thanks to all who danced the night away at our Disco.

End of season club Blitz 26th May. AGM Monday 21st May 8.30pm in Parish Centre.
