Academy/U10 Girls End of Season Blitz

Last Friday 22nd June we held our Annual End of Season Blitz. In what proved to be a very successful event 83 children battled it out in the Dutch Vision League system where every child got to play six matches and they were graded on each game.

The event was co-ordinated by Dave Bell a very good friend of Glounthaune United over the years who currently holds a position as Football Development Officer with the Welsh F.A.

Academy Trainers Billy Milner, JB McCarthy and Cian Spillane kept a watchful eye over the U14 boys who were drafted in to help. Many thanks to Conor Barry, Ciaran Finnegan, Andrew Gannon, Dylan McNamara, Dan O’Brien and Ryan O’Neill for their expert refereeing and prompt result reporting on the day.

For the U10 Girls Trainers John Hayes and Tim Patterson did the honours. Thanks to Megan Spillane and Ciara Murphy for looking after the younger girls, refereeing matches and reporting results – take a bow girls! We were lucky with the weather and the event got off with precision timing once all the children had been registered and accounted for.

Sincere thanks to Noreen Gannon for making the last minute dash to Ballincollig to secure the medals and trophies for the children, many thanks also to Sonia McNamara for all her help recording scores, registering children and generally keeping tabs on everything.
