As the 2019/20 President of Carlow Football Club, I would like to welcome all our members, players,
coaches, officials, family and friends to the start of our season. The very best of luck to our club Captain
Richard Whyte and our Coyotes team captain Jenny Ardill. I would like to wish our new senior club coach
Corey Carty and forwards coach Jeff Carter all the best for the season ahead. They all work tirelessly for
their players and I have every faith that they will all rise to the occasion and bring a renewed drive and
success to your teams.
Our Youth and Mini sections continue to grow thanks to the hard work and drive of our Youths

related and ensuring all our coaches and players have the best possible support throughout the year.
