Happy New Year to all our Academy players and parents. It has been a whirlwind first 5 months of the season at the O Neills Saints Academy. We are now in January and we are still seeing new players join the Academy. In December we completed our Christmas friendly against Dunboyne AFC Academy. Our visitors brought 28 players and we had over 60 players available. It was a fantastic display of football on a very cold morning and our players are progressing along very nicely. After the friendly all our players their selection boxes, crisps, drink and a friendly certificate. I hope to have another friendly organised by the end of January and we will inform you all on any updates. Next weeks schedule is listed below. Thank You.
10 am - 11 am training at our pitches in Porterstown. Please be at the ground no later than 9.50 am as we start at 10 am sharp.

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.
