The rise of the Phoenix (DKC juniors)

The past few weeks have been quite eventful for DKC’s junior section. The kids club at Ardler had been limping along for quite a while before Christmas, and sadly it looked like it was time to pull the plug. But just as we were about to wash the baby out with the bathwater, the nice people at the Ardler Complex came to our rescue: they’ve offered us a much better deal on our hall hire, so we were all set to relaunch our junior club this Thursday. Naturally, the handful of kids that we have managed to keep and grow over the past three years seemed very relieved at this turn of events. Even better news was that the “relaunch” attracted 4 more newbies too, as well as a couple of enthusiastic new helpers. And so, in short, here we go again… Yippeee!

Anyone with any interests in the newly relaunched club should get in touch with Nigel Cooper (the club’s Development Officer) in the first instance – email or phone/text 07817 640432. New players (both boys and girls aged 8-14) will always be welcome, and the club will always try its best to accommodate people of all abilities. Training runs from 5:30pm to 6:30pm every Thursday night at the Ardler Complex on Turnberry Avenue (DD2 3TP) – regular sessions cost £2 each, but concessions are available and everyone gets their first session for free.
