Soccer training will commence in September/October 2011 in preparation for the season which will kick off after Christmas. Training will take place in the park after school on Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays. Training is open to all from 4th, 5th and 6th classes. There may be some boys from 3rd class also asked to attend. All of the training will be skills-based. Every boy will have his own football to train with, with the emphasis on ball-work and passing/possession. The goal is to become better players and not to be focussed solely on winning.
Despite losing the cup final in extra-time last season, the team can be very proud of their achievements and their committment and skill was a joy to behold at times. Players like Shane Comerford, Daragh Murphy, Paul Fox and Dean Stone excelled throughout a very successful season. The team won its league section and came second in Dublin in the 5-a-side section. Let’s hope this season is just as good…
