Hi,

Looking for some advice on this.

I come from a hurling only parish and was never interested in hurling. I'm heading for thirty now and would really like give football a go even to see what is like, training etc.

I'm fairly active, have done a lot of cycling including races for years, run some, work out some, don't mind putting in the hours but I'm a complete beginner when it comes to football beyond playing it in the yard!

Would there be any clubs bothered with a beginner on a learning curve? Somehwere short on players? And beyond that would it even be the done thing to off to some other parish?

I'm in Dublin a bit too for college and I know there are some clubs there who say they take beginners but I'd perfer to do it down the country.

Thanks lads!

I'd say there's not too many clubs would turn anyone away (I know mine wouldn't anyway). There's always room for one more.
A lot of the clubs have or had lads from hurling only clubs playing a bit of football with them.
Go for it!!

We'll draw straws lads. Or I'll set up a draft like in the NFL.

By the way, go for it rothar, you're never too old or its never too late. Life is too short for regrets. Nothing to lose.

Thanks for all the replies lads. The draft is a good idea but because I've never played before I'm holding out for the worst team!

Hi, St Joseph's I did send that PM last week, hope it got through. I'm still very much on the look out for somewhere to play.
