Little Sophia Geoghegan had a very important job at Derrymacash tonight.

The Wolfe Tones youngster was handed the task of opening the gates on the splendid new 4G facilities which facilitated the first training session since the beginning of lockdown.

Her friends and team mates were like spring lambs as they bounced on to the playing area, shrieking with delight.

The club's Chairman, Cathal Tighe, said, “We are delighted to see the youngsters back training at the Tones.

“We are looking forward to getting the new season underway. With the new stand in place the club is buzzing, and the amount of people who have been involved in bringing us to the next level is staggering.”

Young Sophia is now a huge celebrity around Derrymacash. She will go down in history as the young lady who ended lockdown and set the "Tone" for future stars - well done Sophia!
