Under 16 Players with DOB 1996

With new FAI rules last year’s Under 14 age group now move up to Under 16 to fall in line with other sports. In order to get ready for the new season starting on 3rd September – the 1996 group are starting back to training on Monday 8th August from 6-7.30pm. The Senior players will again be back on board training this group with Sean O’Donoghue and JP Mullins picking up their coaching certs last season. Robin O’Day will be working on fitness & stamina having spent some time with the Notts Forrest crew over the summer. We will also be calling on KJ Griffin for defence and goalkeeping and Paddy McClure for midfield tactics to complete the backroom staff!. Having put last season down to ‘work experience’ for the new coaching staff the emphasis this year is to train hard, become a team and get results. We start back with a blank canvass and new players are welcome to come to training from the 8th until registration in late August to try out before making a final decision on joining.
