Join the Team
We love having new people interested in the sport and who want to give it a go, no matter what their skill level and nationality and over the years we have had players from Argentina, America, Australia, (No, I’m not intentionally doing the list alphabetically) Spain (of course), South Africa, Croatia, England, Cyprus and even one fella from Ballymoney, so as you can see, we will take anyone. If you feel like giving it a try – click here.
Irish Football? eh?
On this site you will find plenty of info about the GAA(or Gaelic Athletic Association to give it the official and complete title), the club itself and the game including the rules and regulations, so if you fancy trying a fast, hard game with a combination of skills incorporating basketball, running, soccer, handball, a bit more running and even some kung fu on occasion!
There isn’t one. No one is to young or to old to play with the Costa Gaels. Our youngest player is 8 months old (ok, ok, Im exaggerating a little but WE feel like he’s part of the team) and our oldest… well he wouldn’t tell us what age he was so we stole his wallet. Lets just say, if a bus went all the way to the pitch, he would be getting it for free, and leave it at that shall we?
If your wondering what kit you might need to play, it couldn’t be simpler. A pair of Astro turf boots (not many grass pitches about here unfortunately), shorts, socks and a t-shirt will be all that’s required. Hangovers are optional.
