On a very stormy, cold and wet Saturday morning at the National Sports Campus in Abottstown the saints academy arrived in fantastic numbers. Our pitches in Porterstown did not survive the heavy rainfall on Friday. We had 55 players attend and to have so many players and parents turn up on a very bleak and wet morning shows us the desire the players have to play for the saints academy. Considering the awful conditions it was a brilliant morning of football. The football on display was magnificent and we are really starting to see the players develop their football skills. Thanks to all our coaches for turning up for two hours coaching in the driving rain, they are an absolute credit to the academy and the club for all the work they do every Saturday morning. The dedication shown by everyone is unbelievable and it shows the dedication and commitment involved in the O Neills Super Saints Academy.
At the academy, we are always looking for parents who might be interested in coaching their own son or daughter. If you are interested in becoming part of our fantastic coaching structure, please contact Brendan ASAP. Brendan's contact details are on this page. All coaches that would like to coach a team from the academy must coach through the academy system. We as a club require this to happen, as Brendan needs to get to know the coaches that would like to look after one of our club teams. We need to make sure the correct managers are coaching our players. The coaching path is very rewarding and enjoyable and the club provides FAI Coaching courses at NO cost to you. Brendan looks forward to meeting any parent who would like to join our academy staff.
