400 five to 10s, one of 23, in for 10K. EBS!

This convoluted secret code may have mathematicians scratching their head, but the Buccaneers youths and minis know what it’s all about.BuccsCheq2_640x370

Buccaneers’ youngest members are in the running for a €10,000strong windfall should they emerge as topdog in the latest round of the EBS National Community Fund Awards. If successful, the pitter-patter of teeny-studded feet on Dubarry Park will constitute a major windfall, footfall, and stamp of approval.

EBS has shortlisted Buccaneers and gifted them €500 already in a presentation by Athlone Branch manager Sheila Martin. To kick on from this initial shot-in-the-arm, they need votes. Your votes, our votes, everyone’s.

The most-popular finalist from among nearly two dozen by the March 6 deadline wins.

BuccsCheq_640x425To vote, supporters must log on to www.ebs.ie and access the voting facility through its National Community Fund link, and vote for Buccaneers Minis. With up to 400 youngsters training and playing regularly at Dubarry Park, it costs a tidy mint to provide and maintain necessary kit and facilities.

Needless to say, €10,000 would throw underage rugby into overdrive out Athlone way.
