Summer Camp 2015:
Our annual FAI Summer Soccer School took place from 6th to 10th July 2015 for boys and girls at our club grounds at Cork Rd. Durrow. This year we had 114 participants which is our biggest yet. It was a huge success with all boys and girls thoroughly enjoying it. A special thanks to Kieran Shortall who coordinates the camp each year and also to Conor Murphy and Liam Kelly who assisted with traffic each day.
Annual Awards Day 2015: Our annual awards day took place on Saturday 4th July 2015 for all our underage teams. There was a great attendance by players from all age groups and the support of parents was once again greatly appreciated. Local star Aidan Keenan who now plays for Wexford Youths in the League of Ireland made the presentations to all the players including all non competitive players (U-6 to U-10) who received medals for their participation during the season.
The following players were selected for ‘player of the year’ awards: U11 – Oisin Conroy; U12 – Darragh Kelly; U13 – Jim O’Connor; U14 – Aaron Grady; U15 – David Bergin; U17 – Sean Dundon. U12 Girls – Ella Moore; U14 Girls – Faye Bryam. Congratulations and well done to all.
A special merit award was also presented to three players who represented the Lions soccer club on the Development Squads this season. They were Aaron Grady and Daire Quinn at U14 and Adam Kenna at U15 levels – well done to the three lads!
Next Season: To get the next season up and running, a registration night will take place on Tuesday 18th of August for all age groups in the club. A text will be sent out to all parents nearer the date to remind them of the registration night.
