Breska Rovers earn FAI Club Mark

Breska Rovers AFC are the latest club to achieve the FAI Club Mark.
20th May 2020

They were founded in 1977, and currently play in Tervoe, Clarina, Co.Limerick. 

Breska Rovers' successes include: 

  • The club has recently received a Capital Sports Grant to improve playing pitches at the club with the exciting addition of an Under-12 pitch. 
  • The club has a proud tradition and history within the Limerick Desmond League. 
  • Former underage player Paudie O'Connor is now playing in England with Bradford City. 

The club currently has around 300 members and caters for girls and boys' teams from Under-6 (Football Nursery) to Under-16 at underage level, two Junior teams and a Ladies Team. 

The club would like to thank all the coaches who give up their time every week to help the development of all of our players at all levels.

Breska Rovers are affiliated to the Limerick Desmond Football League, Limerick Desmond Schoolboys/girls League & the Limerick Desmond Ladies League. 

The club would like to thank local FAI Development Officer Barry McGann who supports the club in all aspects from coaching to club management and was a big helping them in achieving the FAI Club Mark.

Chairman David Gee, Secretary Niall O'Connor and Treasurer Richard Smith have also been commended for their work in the running of the club and to all club committee members and coaches who have also helped to achieve this award.

Breska Rovers also thanked the league committees for their continued help and support, along with Mike McGregor who keeps the club pitch at a very high quality all year around and to PRO Tom Clancy for all the work on the social media and PR side of things.

The club finally thanked the parents and children who commit their free time and effort to make sure their children have a future in the game at whatever level they play at. 

Breska Rovers will be presented with their FAI Club Mark in the coming months, once restrictions recede.

The FAI Club Mark is an award for grassroots clubs based on best practice in the governance, management and administration of a football club.

Clubs start their journey at Entry Level and can progress onto the One Star Award. Each step challenges the club to implement policies and procedures in line with best practice.

The FAI Club Mark is free and optional for clubs and aims to:

  • Improve the management of clubs ‘off the field’
  • Establish and promote best practice
  • Empower and support clubs
  • Recognise and reward clubs for achieving high standards
  • Increase a club’s capacity to operate effectively and grow football in communities throughout Ireland.
