It's been a very frustrating month with all the heavy rainfall and unplayable pitches. We moved our O Neills Super Saints Academy to the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown. The fantastic facilities in Abbotstown ensured our Academy players could continue their development and have fun. The players are progressing very well and that progress is very noticeable every week. I hope to have a friendly arranged against Dunboyne AFC Academy on December 13th. Our friendly against Dunboyne AFC will be the last Academy session before Christmas. As this will be our last Academy session before the Christmas break, after the friendly against Dunboyne AFC, we will continue the annual tradition of giving all the players selection boxes, drinks and match day certificate. Our Academy will resume in January with the date TBC.
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.
