The 2015 season is nearly upon us already, and after last year's great achievements, and a number of European championships in the trophy cabinet, the stage is set for another successful season.
Key to success on the field involves a strong committee working in the background. The club's AGM took place on Tuesday January 27th with an excellent turnout from the club's football, camogie and hurling teams, as well as a number of social members.
With the club growing every year, a larger committee to service all the various teams is required, and 2015 provides us with our largest ever committee. Members who were elected on the night include:
Chairperson - Derek McElhinney
Secretary - Tadhg O'Shea
Treasurer - Neville Ducie
PR Officers - David Corcoran & Sarah Kenny
Men's Football Coach - Brendan Finnegan
Men's Football Captain - Colm Brennan
Club Selectors - Aonghus O'Drisceoil & Martin McClean
Ladies Football Coach - Ruairi Lehmann
Ladies Football Captain - Karen Maguire
Hurling Officer - Jack O'Gorman
Camogie Officer - Amy Franck
Logistic's Officer - Darren Corcoran
Training for all codes will resume in mid-February, and details will be sent out via the club blog, facebook page, and twitter account. All new players are very welcome to get in touch. The club will also announce a number of social events to kickstart the new season over the coming weeks.
As well as a new year, and a new committee, Amsterdam GAC is delighted to announce that our good friends at Dan Murphys Bar in Leidseplein have come on board as our new club sponsors.
Karlo and all the team at Dans have been great supporters of the club over the past 12 years, and all at the club are delighted with the new partnership! The picture below captured the moment that Karlo announced unlimited free beer for the team for the season and an amnesty for all damage to stools and tables we've caused over the years :D
