This morning, Sport NI representatives and Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council Deputy Mayor Paul Duffy joined us at our Give It A Go session to announce our club President Jo Buchanan as the Sport NI Young Volunteer of the Year 2018 winner and presented Jo with his award. Describing Jo's contribution to the club, his nominator said "The Craigavon Cowboys would not be where we are without the hard work and immense time that Jo has put in. He is a true role model for young and old alike within our club and It’s simply incredible the amount of time that he dedicates." This follows volunteer awards for Manny Bell and Greg Loughran earlier this year - it's great to see that the hard work and dedication of our volunteers is being recognised. Congratulations Jo!

The Craigavon Cowboys take on the West Dublin Rhinos on August 12th in Wexford in the IAFL 1 Bowl, but it’s far from the first time these two sides have met.
Over the last eight years, the two clubs have faced each other 10 times, with the Cowboys winning six of those fixtures and the Rhinos four. While they may have been founded 30 years and about 90 miles apart, the two clubs have a lot in common.
Both have earned reputations for fielding hard-hitting and competitive teams that never know when they’re defeated. Each club also recently dropped down to IAFL 1 after years competing at the top level in Ireland, the Rhinos in 2015 and the Cowboys in 2016.
Things are looking up now though, as they each sit four quarters away from silverware. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see how previous meetings between the two sides played out.
Calling all former Cowboy members! We invite you to our Alumni Game on Sunday 17th June when your Craigavon Cowboys take on the NI Razorbacks.
