While an official Spring season has been cancelled, the EPRU has authorized friendlies, pending the guidelines for activities as set by local jurisdictions. After surveying internal interest and attending a meeting of fellow EPRU D2 Men’s teams, it was determined Old Gaelic would participate in a season of Spring friendlies.
Spring practices will begin on Tuesday, March 15, giving players a full month to prepare before our first scheduled friendly on April 17.
Find below the first iteration of the Spring schedule. This is by no means set in stone, and subject to change. Of course, following the COVID data and protocols are essential to any of these games being seen through. The format of games are to be determined between the teams involved, and very well may include modifications such as no live scrums or lineouts.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for further announcements:
April 17 @ Phoenixville-Whitehorse
April 24 Bye
May 1 vs. Doylestown
May 8 Open/Makeup Date
May 15 vs. Philly Whitemarsh
May 22 vs. Lancaster*
Please save May 22 on your calendars as a team day. This is the Saturday closest to what would have been Frank Lentz’ 45th Birthday and will likely double as our 45th Anniversary party. Details to come.
