Our Under 15s and 16s had a quieter year with many of the squad on JCT duty for their respective schools so the non JCT players dutifully came down to training each Sunday to concentrate on their skills. It was only near the end of the season that everyone returned and our strength was back up to 23 players. We played a touring side Frankfurt 1880 U16s (German club champions) in a competitive fixture followed by 2 friendly matches in April & May to finish out the season on a high note. As a pre-season bonding activity and a way to contribute to the community, the incoming U17s players have organised a charity shave or dye in aid of the Blackrock Hospice. A donate page has been setup and will be posted on FB.
U17s is going to be a very exciting age group as we will have a full and strong squad to compete in the leagues and cup. Strength & conditioning will commence in late July along with pre-season training for what promises to be a great year for the group. Anyone born 2001 or 2002 is welcome to join our squad where they can expect excellent coaching and the full support of our club in line with the 5 year plan.
