Nitro ensure Cuala Cats are looking good

CUALA got a cracking draw against Thomas Davis in Division 1 of the AFL. 2-12 each.

It cements Cuala's mid-table position.

"We got promoted last season, and this is the club's first time playing at this level," explains Colin Behan.

Following the game, David Sheeran from Nitro presented a new training and leisure kit to the Adult football Chairman, Brian Mullally.

"It's the second year that Nitro have generously acted as the principal sponsor of the football section," says Colin.

Cuala are fielding four adult teams.

"Our second and third teams are contesting promotions in AFL 5 and AFL 8 respectively.

"The fourth team are mid-table in Division 10, so things are going very well.

"We are one of the biggest dual clubs in Dublin. Many of our players play both football and hurling.

"Our juvenile and minor sections are thriving, and the plan is to field a fifth adult football team next year," adds Colin.

FODH on the move
