The Woodpecker Bar & Restaurant – Proud Sponsors Of The Wicklow Junior A Football Championship

We are delighted to announce that the good folk at the Woodpecker Bar & Restaurant have came on board in sponsoring a Prize for the Wicklow Junior A Football Championship Top Scorer for 2019.

The player who finishes the Championship campaign as the Top Scorer will receive a €100 Food & Drinks Voucher for the Woodpecker Bar & Restaurant to mark their achievements.

The brilliant support of the Woodpecker Bar & Restaurant is phenomenal and the more businesses that can sponsor clubs, and county teams the better we are able to compete and provide the necessary resources to ensure our teams compete at the highest levels. A prize such as this is a very fitting reward for a player who will have committed so much time and effort into their Championship campaign and the opportunity for them to receive a trophy is a great way to mark their achievement.
